    RAW food with lowest *bone* 🦴 content ?!

    Purpose Pet Food (freeze dried raw, must be rehydrated), claims to only use 5% bone. That's what I've been using for my Molly. They only have one protein though, chicken, although the owner indicated to me last year they may have two additional proteins by the end of this year or 2020.

    Dr. Murphy's Nature's Feast Cat Food?

    lisahe I contacted Susan at TAPF more than a year ago re: my dissatisfaction with MM's response regarding the amount of bone in their food (same company as Feline Natural). In a nutshell, per AAFCO's guidelines, the company doesn't have to list "bone" in their ingredients, it's understood that...

    Fresh Is Best Freeze Dried, Boneless Raw

    That is interesting that the MCHA is more costly than the calcium carbonate. Maybe they do have a special supplier. Anyway, it's still a decent alternative to the others, just not for my little guy. Also their calcium / phos #'s are a bit better, at least what I remember reading for the...

    Fresh Is Best Freeze Dried, Boneless Raw

    When I first started feeding FIB, I didn't know the bonemeal would cause Mikey constipation. He was getting constipated on another commercial raw (that he had eaten for 4 years without any issues) so when I saw FIB's use of bonemeal, I thought it would be different, that his constipation was due...

    Fresh Is Best Freeze Dried, Boneless Raw

    It wasn't the protein in FIB that caused constipation but rather the bonemeal that caused Mikey to become constipated. He can't have any type of bone in his food, unfortunately, even when I used the fattier duck, extra fat helps him but not with FIB unfortunately. I just contacted the...

    Fresh Is Best Freeze Dried, Boneless Raw

    It's a very good alternative to the other freeze dried products with bone, however, my cat still became constipated on both the duck and turkey unfortunately. Both cats really liked the taste though, I may get it again for my one cat who doesn't have constipation problems.

    Peas Found In Hound & Gatos Duck!!!

    Sure, no problem. :) I'm glad Koha rabbit is working out for you. We've been using Rawz, Holistic Select and Weruva canned products, although the cats are on / off with Rawz (turkey and occasionally duck) because they just don't like the food that much. My cats don't have a problem with...

    Peas Found In Hound & Gatos Duck!!!

    I checked the other forum where the pea was found in H&G's duck food and it was back in March 2018 with a best buy date of 3/2020. Given your best buy date of 6/2022, obviously it's still an issue with HG, not worthy of continuing to support them, imo. Sorry you had this experience, it's...

    Peas Found In Hound & Gatos Duck!!!

    This isn't the first time I've read about this happening with H&G's cat food, unfortunately, someone in another group had the same issue with peas found (duck also) and posted pics - and that was either early this year or 2018. Definitely sounds like the lines aren't cleaned and it's cross...

    Kidney Food

    Mikey & Molly's vet also recommends Weruva for kidney issues, just wish Weruva had more variety, e.g., turkey protein. We can't use their beef or lamb. But I agree, Weruva is excellent as far as quality protein and low phos, generally.

    Thoughts On Balanced Blends Raw/steamed Cat Food?

    Just an fyi that Mikey's vet told us (or me, lol - Mikey stood by and took notes), to avoid eggshell as well because there could be egg protein, albeit small amounts, in ground eggshell.

    Thoughts On Balanced Blends Raw/steamed Cat Food?

    I think choline maybe? Egg yolks are rich in choline, I'll have to look into it, thanks again.

    Thoughts On Balanced Blends Raw/steamed Cat Food?

    Thank you, looks like a good recipe, I would omit the eggs for Mikey and then I'll have to see about the cal carbonate. I'll ask Mikey's vet, he was encouraging me to just use Balance It but I prefer an alternative. Again, I have no idea how much cal carbonate to use, I'll just ask his doc to...

    Thoughts On Balanced Blends Raw/steamed Cat Food?

    and Show Me Your Kitties For the last two years or so, Mikey hasn't had any raw other than some freeze dried raw treats (with no bone, eg duck liver or turkey breast). He tested high positive for an egg allergy several years ago. I removed eggs entirely from his diet (at that time Rad Cat...
