These products are formulated according to the principles of Evolutionary Nutrition and on that basis may be fed as the whole diet, or combined with varying proportions of raw meaty bones and other whole raw healthy foods.  

 

Typically, many raw feeders will feed equal amounts of patties and raw meaty bones. Raw meaty bones commonly used are chicken necks, wings and carcasses, lamb flaps, beef brisket, soft pork bones etc.

Important

 

  • Always adjust amount fed to maintain desired body weight and condition.

 

  • For simple obesity, dilute patties by adding adding low glycemic index vegetable pulp to the patties.

 

  • When feeding 50% patties and 50% raw meaty bones, feed half the above plus an equal amount of raw meaty bones. This may be fed as two meals daily, a patty meal and a raw meaty bone meal.

Important

 

  • Always adjust amount fed to maintain desired body weight and condition.

 

  • For simple obesity, reduce the amount of bones fed, reduce bones and reduce fat but do not starve your cat. Calories fed may also be reduced by adding small amounts of low glycemic index vegetable pulp to the patties.

 

  • When feeding 50% patties and 50% raw meaty bones, feed half the above plus an equal amount of raw meaty bones. This may be fed as two meals daily, a patty meal and a raw meaty bone meal.

 

Preparation

 

A raw pet food diet will spoil if left un-refrigerated for an extended period of time. To thaw, remove from bag, place in a container with lid and defrost in refrigerator. Excess food should be refrigerated for the next feeding or discarded.

 

Safe Handling Instructions

 

Raw meat products may contain bacteria that could cause illness if mishandled. Wash working surfaces, utensils and hands with hot soapy water after each feeding. Treat as you would any raw meat product. Do not re-freeze once thawed.
