This is Peaches. Some of you may have seen her feature on here a few times and some of you may have met her here in the clinic.

She originally came to us at Brackenbury in October last year, after being found on the street with a prolapsed rectum – this was due to on-going diarrhoea.

When she first arrived, she was underweight, covered in fleas & ticks, had ear mites and was very smelly.
She had to stay in our isolation cage and we could only handle her when wearing gloves and gowns, as we had no idea of her history or if she had anything infectious.
She was treated with Stronghold and put on a gastro-intestinal diet to hopefully get rid of the diarrhoea. We also started ear medication which made her very greasy!

After a few weeks in the clinic, and her diarrhoea not improving, it was decided that the next thing we needed to do, was repair the prolapse.

The surgery Peaches needed is not a frequently performed surgery, and after speaking to James at our Chiwick branch and a specialist surgeon Tom and the team developed a plan and took her to theatre.

The surgery was successful, however we had still not fixed the diarrhoea.

Over the next few months, we trialed Peaches on lots of different diets to try to improve her stools, we sent a faecal sample to the lab to check for any bacteria or parasites we may be able to treat and we even tried a course of steroids in case the issue was as simple as an inflamed bowel.
None of the usual diets we use to treat diarrhoea had worked, her faecal analysis came back clear and not even the steroids made a difference!

We had finally started to accept that she was just going to have diarrhoea forever and maybe she would have to stay with us and be the clinic cat.

Our last idea was to try Peaches on a raw diet.

Raw diets are fairly new on the market, and are generally not our first choice. This is because there are few around that are properly balanced diets, and by feeding an unbalanced diet, you can cause more harm than good.

I looked into a few different companies, and sent an email to NaturesMenu. I told them Peaches' story, and asked if they would be able to give us a sample of their raw diet to try. They very kindly sent us 2 boxes!!
Even though Peaches is NEVER fussy when it comes to food, we had to wean her onto the raw diet over a week – the texture is very different to the other dry diet she had been on, so it took some getting used to.
After 1 week, Peaches was eating only NaturesMenu raw diet, and her stools were formed and less smelly!!

She has now been on her raw diet for 3 weeks and is doing really well!

Peaches is a great example of how sometimes there is no “quick fix”, especially when it comes to skin & dietary allergies, but with perseverance & patience, you can get there in the end!
