exactly! and don't grind it up. waste of your time. you have the best grinders of nature just waiting to get their chance to prove it to you
you want to do for cats : 80% meat/fish, 10%raw never
cooked bone and 10% organ and eggwith about 1/2 of that being liver
and for dogs I do the same but you can add some veggies if you want too, I personally don't.
each animal will eat approx 2-3% of their ideal adult body weight each day. I have been told that dogs should be fasted 1 day/week, but I found if I did that, my little pup got thin. cats should never go more then 24hrs without eating.
so...for a 16lb cat would eat .3 to .5 lbs/day and a 50lb dog would eat 1 to 1.5 lbs /day. so you would need probably a maximum of 6 lbs of food a day. That would be an extreme top end weight though for 5 very
active animals, and that includes bone, meat, fish, eggs, organ and treats.
