If you’re like most pet owners, the eye-watering complexities of canine and feline nutrition are a daunting prospect.
You may’ve heard of 80:10:10 ratios of muscle meat, organs, and bone, or calcium to phosphorous ratios. Perhaps you’re baffled by talk of vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, prebiotics, probiotics, and digestive enzymes.
For most people it’s hard to know where to start, and scary when the health of the pet you love is at stake.
Many raw feeders get over these concerns, and generally feeding a good balanced raw diet will address these concerns without you needing to worry. But this can take time before you feel comfortable.
Using a supplement mix
This is a great way to take risk out of feeding a raw or fresh diet.
Thankfully in Australia we have a range of brands which cater for such a need.
The one I use often, simply because it’s been around a long time, and comes from a reputable company, is Bruce Syme’s Vets All Natural.
It’s a powder mix which contains all required nutrients to be added to fresh breast meat.
We have dried raw mixes as well, designed to cater for everything, but come at a higher price. Some examples are Balanced Life mixes (also by Bruce Syme), and the excellent Raw Meow for cats as a homegrown Perth small business.
