I recently went to a cat show (first time in over 20 years) and there were several vets on hand to discuss whatever you wanted to talk about. I asked each and everyone of them about the rawfed diet and their comments/concerns. Here's what it came down to.
They all advocate rawfed if done correctly. Their complaint was that humans do the damage - they bring their sick kitties in, "...but I feed only a raw diet..." only to find out that the human forgot about the premade rawfed and let it "go over" or made it with meat that had gone too bad for anything to eat.
Their suggestion - like we don't already know this - is to freeze any unused portions and thaw it only when it is going to be fed in a few hours. I mean that day. "Don't let it thaw on the counter or keep it in the refrigerator for a week."
And the cat show was great. And every breeder I talked with (there were many) were very open and each one fed their cats either an exclusive rawfed (Maine Coon cats in particular) or high quality canned and rawfed diet.
I just thought it was interesting.
