The relationship between the ailments that plague so many cats and nutrition could not be more clear to me now. But that sure as heck wasn't always the case. For years, I fed dry food (with canned food a 'treat') and put enormous faith in various prescription diets that vets recommended to me. I fed cats that way for many years, never making the link between the diseases that they struggled with that cut their lives shorter than I could bear and the wholly inappropriate diet I was feeding them.
It was only when, out of desperation, I began investigating other approaches to dealing with disease - thanks to my amazing and very brave cat, Duke, and his six years of diarrhea and intestinal upset - that the light bulb lit up brightly for me.
Since then, I've come to learn that while changing a sick cat's diet isn't going to necessarily set everything right, until the diet is right nothing can ever truly heal. Diet is the brick and mortar of physical health in cats. There is no single change I'm aware of that you can make to your cat's life that will have a more conspicuous impact on health.
