How to switch your cat to a healthy diet?
When transitioning cats from commercial foods to the raw diet, they can occasionally show some reluctance. If this is the case we recommend that you mix their favorite canned food into the raw mixture. Over the next week or two gradually decrease the canned food until it is eliminated. Also when you are preparing the food, using ice cube trays to freeze the meat mix is a good way to waist less food. Dry cat food should be removed from the meal plan.
Choosing the Meat
Chicken, turkey, beef, venison, lamb or pork are all good choices. The meat must be fresh, raw and fit for human consumption. Use ground or cut into small cubes. We recommend feeding a variety of meats and rotating these choices if possible. Meat should be no greater than 15-20% fat content. When transitioning cats to this raw diet, poultry has proven to be the best option.
Avoid feeding raw fish and mixing different kinds of meat into one meal. The domestic cat is a carnivore and the digestive system is not designed to tolerate the consumption of vegetables or grains.
Kittens do not usually require a transitioning period as they have not been programmed to identify only with commercial foods. They can be fed this diet as young as 4 weeks of age, however this does not replace the necessity of nursing. Kittens should be fed 4 meals per day until 4 months old, and then 3 meals per day until they are 12 months of age.
