Awesome! I'm excited to try these down the road when I run out of vitamins!

Another question: colloidal silver...what's the deal? I have customers that swear by the stuff as a topical and internal preventative and healing supplement.

Thanks BK! Good to know, especially since I can get them pretty cheap!

It's just a little pudge at this point and 0.6 extra ounces, but I prefer to be preventative about weight gain instead of allowing her to get fat and then trying to foster weight loss.

Well...yes LOL, but I have been including it because it's free and money is still really tight here.

I regularly use beef kidney when I can only find a ground raw/meat w/ no organs mix. Both my gals love it. I have also found pork kidney, but only at one store in my city, and only Kaylee likes it. I find it easier to find different livers here, and chicken beef and moose are big hits here! (My dad hunts moose). Anywho, glad to hear it's going well!

Also, BK, I recall awhile back you saying that chicken gizzards and hearts could be fed often. Just wondering how often?

So I weigh the ladies once/month. Kaylee is 16.2 lbs and Amelia is 12.2lbs. Both have large frames and are long, but Kaylee is starting to seem a little chubby when I look at her from above. Amelia seems to be at an ideal weight, if not a little skinny. Basically they are both physically BIG cats, but Kaylee has some chubbiness around her belly.

As you know, I am feeding them each 2.5oz raw catinfo recipe in the morning, and a mix of Orijen kibble and Weruva or Evo canned in the evening (about 20g Orijen with 1.5 oz canned). They do get several treats per day (usually Orijen freeze-dried, My Mighty Lion, or Purebites) as we are clicker training.

We already play with them for about 20 minutes twice/day. Do you think I should be trying to get Kaylee to lose weight? Might the weight gain be related to feeding kibble? Just want o ensure both gals are healthy! Kaylee will eat anything and she is not picky. If I don't watch her like a hawk, she will try to steal Amelia's food.

BK, when you use gizzards and hearts as treats, do you use them raw? Also, I am doing a lot of clicker training with the ladies these days, so do you think I should slightly decrease their food portions? They currently get around 2.5 oz per meal twice a day each.

Thanks you two!

So if I want to do just a ground meat diet with no bones or organs, I can use the Better in the Raw, but if I want to do a ground meat/bone/organ mix, I should do the Alnutrin For Meat & Bone? So I could use the Alnutrin for the catinfo recipe? Just making sure I understand correctly.

Also, any idea why the Better in the Raw uses barley grass and whey?

A friend showed me this website and they sell two supplements: one to add to a raw diet and the other to add to a homecooked diet. They look pretty good to me aside from the barley grass, psyllium and whey protein.

Any thoughts? I have enough supplements for the cat info recipe to last about a year, but I was considering this for after that...
