I understand. Thank you.
I'll give a partial answer now. A full response will have to wait a day or 2.
I see. So eggs add vitamin D. Eggs are also high in vitamin A, right (according to the Nutrition Data site)? What about adding, say, Carlson's unflavored cod liver oil, which contains both? Just thinking out loud - seeing if there are any viable alternatives.2) Eggs add a lot of vit D which can otherwise be hard to come by in a raw recipe.
Dang. Even duck breast? I have a source for duck breast.
3) If fat is a concern you might want to reconsider the duck. It is 44% higher in fat than chicken thighs.
The problem is that Sebastian is on a special diet of "cool" proteins only based on a diagnosis by a TCVM vet. I think it does make a difference. Chicken (meat, egg yolks, and liver) is considered warm/hot. Duck is cool, but fattening.
Any thoughts on doing a duck and fish/seafood recipe to cut the fat? Clams, mussels, oysters, cod, whitefish, and deep sea fish are all considered cool. Remember, it would be fed for three weeks straight, so I don't know if giving him a food with fish/seafood in it would be bad for three weeks.
