See handsome George the diabetic Maine Coon cat after he recovered from the ravages of a junk food diet and set about devouring raw meaty chicken and rabbit bones.
Note his confident demeanour and lustrous coat.
But it was not always this way. Let’s hear what George’s owner had to say about the remarkable (and improbable, highly lucky) transformation.
Submission 72 to the Australian Parliament, Senate Standing Committees of Rural & Regional Affairs & Transport, as the Committee gathered evidence into ‘Regulatory approaches to ensure the safety of pet food/’
No cat should be reduced to: ‘Urinating uncontrollably all over the house (he was incontinent), was drinking water constantly, and was clearly extremely unwell.’ Neither should the owner be told by the consulting vet that diabetes in cats is unrelated to their diet.
How lucky, how improbable in the current climate of vet orthodoxy (towering incompetence) that George is now here to illustrate the shortcomings of current vet theory and practice.
Please have a look at the video where 12-year-old George looks young and healthy as compared with Milo the 12-month-old cat with the moth-eaten coat and sad demeanour.
Of course, prevention is the best option—start young kittens on a raw meaty bones diet from four weeks of age. If your cat is past kittenhood and fed industrial junk, then please make the change.
Please note that besides the appropriate nutrients in raw meaty bones, it’s the ripping and tearing at raw meaty bones that keeps gums healthy. It’s increasingly well-known that gum disease makes diabetes worse.
