post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
its been a week that Little Miss is undergoing the switch from science diet i/d to california natural and its not good, her poos are runny and still some blood and now Domino and Slinky have runny poos, Dominos with blood and Genna is throwing up. my vet asked my if i would cook for my cats their own homemade food, she has good resources and will give me recipes. wht do you guys think, is homeade food better for bad tummys? their bloodwork was good and are neg for parasites. i already have Bobo who has skin allergy issues, i'm looking for some input should i try a new commercial food or go homemade(which isnt a problem i love to cook) please help me!!

well, you have more control over a homemade diet. however, you'll need to add things if it's the only food they're eating.
i supplement my furkids' wet food w/homemade wet - but only about 3 tablespoons to a can of food [split 3 ways after mixing] so i don't add a lot of stuff [like taurine, b-vites, etc.].

from what my vet explained, Laureen, i will have to add supplementes to the diet, my vet and i are working together and she is open to nutritional health and will work together with outside sources if needed. i live in the hudson valley of ny and alot of vets are commercial even at the same practice as my vet by my vet seems to be quite the all natural girl as she really works with me that i domt want my cats on any sort of Hills food. Dr Clark is a gem of a girl

Cant answer for the OP but in some cases cooked is far better for the individual cat ... and in some cases they will eat cooked but not raw when I see one cat who prefers only kibble eat a grasshopper

Hey sharky,
Could you also please pm those recipes as well? Maybe one that doesn't taste good to dogs? (I know that's not possible - just kidding)

Thanks, I await your sage advice!
