Cats are TRUE carnovies (no debate), which means they require a higher level of meat in their diet. Depending on who you ask, dogs are either carnivores or omnivores, which means although they're meat eaters, they also often like to eat other things like plant matter or berries.

For cats, the BARF bones and raw food) diet is mainly meat. Dogs is often mixed up with grain and veggies.

Yup. Evo all the way. Have my three cats on it and are doing great

Cats are obligate carnivores, meaning they need meat. They cant live on a veggie only diet. Dogs are simply carnivores and can survive eating pretty much anything. Although they will not thrive. An appropriate diet is raw meat, organs and bones. Dogs don't have the digestive system to break down plant matter.

well its being done. i found a innova outlet (great store!!!!has a very large selection of very good food!!!) just up the road from my house!!! YAY! Roland seems to like the evo but hes not too keen on eating it mixed up with his old food. he just picks it out. (he has a bit of loose stool already so i will be careful and take it slow!)
And we are changing from clay to pine. (i bought the pine pellets first-lol that was a disaster. those things are awfull! ) i found some of the sawdust type at my new favorite store!!!
whoo hooo!!!!!
