|*Happy dance* We will be getting a free chest freezer from my sister within the next few weeks! We are thinking it may be time to transition from a commercial raw diet to a home-made prey-model raw diet! So my question is does anyone know of a website similar to Hare Today that ships to Canada or is Canadian? I know I can get all the regular beef, pork, fish and chicken (bone in and boneless) as well as the organs I need from grocery stores and ethnic markets, but I don't have a way to get whole rabbit or pheasant or cuts like chicken feet and necks. Any suggestions? The kittens have had several types of raw meat but nothing with raw meaty bones (they have had ground bones in their pre-made raw).
My plan is to start with boneless chicken for a few days, and then start adding in bone-in chicken, but what would the best cuts be? I am assuming something small like wings? I will gradually "wean" them off the pre-made raw, but I'm obviously not going to waste it. What % should I feed as they are only around 7 months old now. They are used to having a bowl of Stella & Chewy's freeze-dried with no water added out during the day. I also feed them three meals a day. So, basically just looking for any help and maybe a sample diet?
I have fed a prey-model raw diet to my dog (no longer with me), I am aware of most of the stuff I need to know. Just wanting any tips or advice since this will be the first time I have done home-made raw with cats. Also, what do people supplement with, if anything? I currently use coconut oil, krill oil, digestive enzymes and Cranimals.
