I would look for a different vet. I did this when one vet told me that feeding my cats a 100% dry diet is best for them and he recommended Meow mix of all things. He also said that the grain free foods were bad for cats because they need the grains. *snort*Think I should lie and say I feed kibble or just go to another vet? This is the cheapest vet for a neuter in my area.
On the contrary, a vet who is very concerned about the well-being of the animals he treats wouldn't refuse to perform an important (and typically very safe) procedure without some evidence that there's some good reason not to. A good vet would warn about potential risks, or offer to perform tests to check for risk factors. This vet honestly just sounds ignorant or condescending.Well, you know, human Drs have been known to refuse treatment for people who they consider to have lifestyle risks. Your vet obviously considers raw feeding to be a lifestyle riskfor cats, and there is a risk of parasites etc. in raw food.
I would see your vet as a person very concerned person over the health of the animals he treats. This doesn't mean that raw feeding is necessarily bad,just that there are dangers involved.
