Does anyone have their ferret's IBD under control,without the use of medication? I have a suspect in the house and I was hoping---if it is so, that there could be a remedy without the long term use of medication. I really hate doing months of medication. (very concerned about symptoms of medication).
Do u think a whole prey diet would help-----excluding all birds.
one of my 7 year old (Koufos) had chronic IBD, he has been completely cured with switching to Raw. They get whole prey 4 meals a week, (Rat, mouse, quail and chicken) only time he has runny poop is on liver and heart days. But not like IBD, just watery and tarry, It is gone by the next meal though.
He still had IBD all through the soup phase, by the time he was eating bone, meat and whole prey the IBD was gone.
IBD is usually tied to food types. A protein trial to figure out which foods cause issues is the best bet. It can be time consuming but well worth it in the end. You may not totally get them off medication but you can certainly work to lower the dosage and frequency by figuring out their trigger proteins.
