Salmon oil, taurine, Forteflora. I sometimes add Wild Trax Feline Supplement to whole ground meats such as rabbit, pheasant, goose and to their whole prey meals to hedge against degradation of vitamins & minerals due to freezing & thawing.

Thanks Deborah! I have a variety, but am going to try Kitty Bloom, I think. I need to give Zuri something but since she eats whole prey it is difficult. She does take some bites of Taj's food, so I will put some in it.

I am hearing that Krill Oil is now being used instead of Salmon Oil. What do you think?

Krill oil, taurine, Total-Zymes and Total-Biotics.... I put vitiams in ground chicken and then after thawing I add the Krill oil, taurine, total-zymes and total-biotics.

Sounds good MK...I have used Mazuri, TC Feline, and others, but taj no longer eats raw, so I don't need all those raw supplements...neither will eat ground chicken anymore. I want to try rabbit again, but am sick of wasting my money on food they won't eat...how much krill?

Krill supposedly has a few more beneficial ingredients, mainly antioxidants, than salmon oil and in humans is more easily absorbed. It can also act as a blood thinner in humans which would have implications if surgery is needed. Otherwise the Omega-3 benefits are similar. I don't know if the blood thinning is an issue in cats but would talk to your vet about it if surgery becomes a necessity.

I use salmon oil because I think the krill should be saved for the whales.

My cats only like chicken. Once in a while I manage to mix a little turkey in too, but not really crazy for it. I mix my own vitamin capsule in with there food. I was thinking of trying the kitty bloom too, let me know how your gang likes it. Keeba is really picky about vitamin sprinkled on top of his food, so I need to mix it all in and I also get any vitamin that say low odor, lol. I buy the mega red Krill oil at Costco, its I think like 8-9 bucks for 90. I also take them and so do my daughters.

Yes, it is always a difficult choice to make...krill vs salmon...
