Welcome to IBDKitties
Feline Inflammatory Bowel Disease is a very serious condition that affects thousands of cats every year. There are many causes for IBD but no cure as of yet. Treatments are evolving as is this disease. Please read as much information on this site as you can. Educate yourself so you know what’s happening and how best to help your fur child. This site is dedicated to my beautiful girl Alex who lost her battle on July 10, 2008 and will now serve, as well as so many others, as my motivation to help as many as we can and to find a cure. Check back frequently for new information. Please be advised that IBD in cats is very different than IBD in dogs. Cats have different dietary needs, respond to medications differently, many things are toxic to them that aren’t toxic to dogs. And they cannot go long without eating before their liver starts to fail. One treatment should not be suggested as a catch all for both species. The information and recommendations on this website are NOT meant to take the place of veterinary advice, as we are NOT veterinarians. It’s here to help you ask better questions and offer additional knowledge to your veterinarian as they often times rely on us for more up to date and accurate reporting on these issues. Some of the information on this site has not been written by a veterinarian and should not be considered a replacement for a veterinarian visit. This site is for education purposes only, and you should always seek the advice and treatment of a vet above all else.
