Raw Feeding For Cats

Pet Food Advisors (05-25-2015) #7040: Raw feeding for cats: it makes teleological sense to give cats a high protein and fat meal that is closest to a mouse. While Dr. Delaney always advises that chicken be cooked for food safety/public health reasons, for those pet owners who want to prepare their own raw chicken, BalanceIT makes Carnivore Blend. There are recipes offered for free on their website (see www.balance.it) in which case the chicken meat should be ground without bones as Carnivore Blend already provides the macrominerals (e.g., calcium and phosphorus) that would come from bone.
