Causes of IBS in Cats
There is no definitive single cause, but the following sources may contribute to the development of this condition.
IBS can be challenging to diagnose due to the symptoms occurring intermittently as well as resembling other diseases. Although this disease is rarely cured, dietary changes have been known to help in reducing the symptoms.
