Hi Everyone,
I have a question for you guy, i want find a new way to feed my both cats (F4) and i find a local business do make raw food for dog and cat.
This is the website: http://chefcanin.com/produits-nourriture-crue/ (unfortunately it is in french, but i will traduce it below the list of ingredient)
Do you think this is a good food for them ? Does the crushed bone is dangerous ? You can see picture below.
They are asking 18$ for a 4 lbs bag (16 sticks). The person said Abbas will need 1,5 sticks per day and Jasmine 1/2. So ruffly i will need 60 stick per month (70$).

Thanks,

Hi! I’d want to know exactly what percentage of crushed bone is being used, but other than that it looks like a good food, though I am newer to the raw food world. I’m curious about the addition of hemp oil, too, do they say anything about CBD content on the website? Bonus points for it being local!

Do you have pics of your boys to share?

I would want to know the percentage of bone (should be around 8%-10%) And how much liver (should be around 10) since heart is not fed as organ it’s fed as muscle meat.

That’s a recipe for Diarrhea!!!
You would need to figure out how much more meat and bone you need to add to balance it.

Yes 15% liver will VERY likely cause diarrhea and also the possibility of Vitamin A overdose since Vit A is not water soluble like many vitamins are. Some cats can’t even tolerate 10% and you have to give them 5% liver and 5% of another secreting organ.
