Wellness Cat Food Large Cans Weigh Less Than They Should Weigh

We added a new cat to the house and he's like a food vacuum and I was going through food like crazy, so I decided to monitor the food a bit more closely. So about a month ago, I started weighing out...

Experience with Colloidal Silver?

Hi,

We're taking our Jarydd in for a tooth extraction later this week. About three years ago he had an extraction and we gave Jarydd colloidal silver for some days before the surgery and some...

I think that's way more than we should have to spend, considering we'll never do anything tougher than turkey bones and probably not even that. One of our cats has a very sensitive stomach, so...

We wish we could find a butcher to do it. No one will. At Safeway, they don't even grind chicken, just beef. They say it's completely against company policy due to cross-contamination. We're...

I didn't think about that. Yuck on the disgusting paste. It's so weird though. As electric grinders are so expensive. We're kind of in the middle of nowhere in B.C., so our choices are a bit...

I can give pieces, but it's not a complete food. We want to make a complete raw food for our cats. We're currently buying prepared raw food, but it's getting way too expensive.

Thanks for your replies. We want to grind the chicken ourselves for a complete raw food. We've been buying prepared raw food, but it's just getting way too expensive to do it this way. We can't...

Hi,

I really can't find this addressed anywhere -- does anyone know if it's possible (or have experience with) grinding raw chicken bones and all using one of those manual turn-crank grinders? ...

Cat Food with Duck?

Hi,

Does anyone know of a dry cat food without grains that has duck rather than chicken and/or turkey? I know there is at least one, but I can't recall what it's called...

With our two cats, Jarydd loves raw and Hamisch absolutely won't touch it. We've been feeding Nature's Variety raw to Jarydd. Hamisch has been getting Orijen dry food, which has no grain. However,...
