Happy Sharing: Cat's Digestive and Coat Health Improved Thanks to Furry Green Fresh Food and Nutritional Supplements
A customer shared that her cat's digestive and coat health greatly improved after consuming Furry Green fresh pet food and nutritional supplements. The cat's chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) stabilized, with reduced vomiting and healthier coat.
A happy customer shared that her cat's digestive and coat health significantly improved after consuming Furry Green fresh food and other nutritional supplements. Here is an update on her cat's condition over the past few months:
At some point, the cat started losing weight and frequently vomiting. Initially, it refused to eat dry food and later stopped eating altogether. The vet diagnosed it with chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
IBD is an immune-related gastrointestinal disease of unknown cause. Due to an imbalance in the immune system, abnormal inflammation occurs in immune cells, preventing them from defending against harmful substances, allowing bacteria to proliferate in the intestines. This leads to abnormalities in food digestion, nutrient absorption, hydration, and detoxification functions. There are no specific breeds prone to IBD, so every owner should regularly monitor their cat's gastrointestinal condition.
Considering the time-consuming nature of preparing a balanced homemade diet and the lack of professional nutritional knowledge, the customer was concerned that homemade fresh pet food might not provide the necessary nutrients for her cat.
As a result, the customer searched for pet food manufacturers on the market and eventually found our company, which provides reasonably priced fresh pet food.
Improvement in the Cat's Condition:
The cat is currently consuming Furry Green fresh cat food, along with probiotic powder and nutritional paste. After three months of simultaneous consumption, the cat's condition stabilized in the second month.
Previously, it vomited daily, but now it vomits only once every two weeks, and its coat has become much healthier.
The customer expressed that she will continue feeding her cat with Furry Green fresh food.

More on Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) in cats
Chronic Vomiting: If the stomach is involved, cats will experience chronic vomiting, which is the most common clinical sign of IBD in cats
Chronic Diarrhea: If the intestines are involved, chronic diarrhea will occur
- Weight Loss: If the syndrome lasts for more than a few months, poor appetite and weight loss are common
Decreased Appetite: Cats may experience a decreased appetite
Other Symptoms: Lethargy, blood in the stool, and a ravenous appetite due to malabsorption of food are also possible symptoms
Ultrasound: Ultrasound can measure the thickness of the stomach and intestinal linings, as well as evaluate the size of the lymph nodes around the intestines, aiding in the diagnosis of IBD
- Tissue Biopsies: The specific type of IBD is conclusively diagnosed based on tissue biopsies
Dietary Therapy: Dietary therapy is a crucial component in the management of IBD in cats. Some cats with IBD will respond to a change in diet, and novel proteins are often recommended
Medication: In some cases, cats with moderate-to-severe IBD may require steroids and possibly immunosuppressive drug therapy
Prognosis: For many cats with IBD, the prognosis is good, and symptoms can often be managed, allowing the cat to live comfortably for many years
What are causing IBD in cats
The causes of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) in cats are not fully understood, but they are believed to involve a complex interaction between various factors. According to the Cornell Feline Health Center, IBD is a condition in which inflammatory cells infiltrate the walls of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, leading to inflammation and disruption of the GI tract's ability to properly digest and absorb food
Hypersensitivity to Bacteria: IBD can be caused by an abnormal 'local' immune response (hypersensitivity) leading to inflammation within the GI tract, which may be driven by an overreaction to non-infectious bacteria within the bowel
Food Allergies: Allergies or intolerances to specific proteins in the diet, such as meat proteins, food additives, artificial coloring, preservatives, milk proteins, and gluten (wheat), are suspected causes of IBD in cats
Genetic Factors: There may be a genetic predisposition to IBD in some cats, as certain breeds have been suggested to be more predisposed to developing IBD
- Immune System Abnormalities: IBD may also be caused by an abnormal response of the immune system to normal components of the GI tract
Diet and Environmental Factors: The altered composition of intestinal bacteria and other environmental factors may also play a role in the development of IBD in cat
Please note that IBD in cats is a complex condition with multifactorial causes, and the exact cause can vary from one cat to another. The condition often requires an extensive workup and, in some cases, a definitive diagnosis based on tissue biopsies
