    All Rawz Pates With Liver, Available Soon In 3 Oz Cans (?)

    I contacted Rawz recently to find out why my local indy store's distributor didn't have the duck & liver pate available at the store. I've been using the turkey pate intermittently but I wanted to try the duck. Also, note the new online retailer with free shipping. This is the response I...

    "meat Mates" Freeze Dried Chicken - Bone Or Calcium Supplement?

    Is anyone familiar with this company? I noticed the freeze dried chicken food on Chewy, it's a "balanced" food, however, no calcium source is listed for the chicken recipe. https://www.chewy.com/meat-mates-chicken-dinner-grain-free/dp/186420 My sense is that the calcium source is ground bone...

    When Choosing A Commercial Raw Food Diet ...

    "A good [raw food] company will have a specific proportion of each ingredient that will be the same in every batch. If they cannot tell you the percentage of meat/bone/organs and fat/protein/moisture, as well as vitamin and mineral content, they have not done the testing and do not know." (Dr...

    For those feeding Primal freeze dried food: Two new Primal freeze dried proteins for cats hit our store today (in NYC) -- duck and rabbit, both single proteins. The new products still are not on Primal's web site nor on Primal's Facebook page so I'm not sure what the Calcium / phos and other...

    I also just noticed on SC's web site under the chicken morsels, they have added menadione sodium bisulphite, a controversial source of vitamin K that SC has been using in their fish products but not in their poultry, until now, along with the pea fiber. I only checked the ingredients for...

    I don't use S&C's FD due to it being too high in phosphorus, however, for those who do use SC FD, I noticed they have now added pea fiber to their cat food. They came out with a new 3.5 oz bag of meal "morsels" that includes the pea fiber, not sure if SC's regular sized bags will be the same...

    Okay - that's it, I've had it. I've been feeding my IBD Molly Lotus Just Juicy turkey on rotation, it is one of the few low fat foods that she can tolerate. Usually, upon opening a can, it's full of shredded white meat and a few carrots.  "It looks good enough for humans to eat" as I've...

    Smelly fish oil as a food topper?

    So I've been trying to get my IBD Molly to eat Instinct LID canned rabbit with little luck. Once in awhile she'll take a few bites but mainly Mikey eats it.   I've tried various freeze dried toppers, usually to no avail, she'll eat a few bites or just the surface of the rabbit with the topper...

    Tiki Cat beef & liver for IBD kitty - success anyone?

    Has anyone had luck with TC's Gourmet Carnivore beef & liver for an IBD cat?  I've been hesitant about beef for various reasons but I'm running out of low carb, carrageenan and guar gum free options.

    I manged to get a few cans of Lotus Just Juicy Turkey Stew today, wow .... both cats inhaled it!
