How to Properly Prepare Raw Food Meals for Your Cat?

Nowadays, pet owners are adopting a much better diet for their animals. You'll see that most pet owners now opt for homemade pet food or raw pet food instead of kibble. It makes sense because everything is much healthier than commercially prepared kibble.


What Exactly is a Raw Cat Diet?


The raw food diet for cats is uncooked or unprocessed, balanced meals. This contains bones, organ meat, and muscle meat. This kind of diet is referred to as the BARF diet, which stands for biologically-appropriate raw food.


The raw diet for cats is created using a carefully developed recipe to ensure a healthy and balanced diet. Although there is pre-made raw cat food, many cat owners choose to make these diets at home.


How to Prepare Raw Cat Food at Home?


You must work with a veterinarian to create a balanced diet that is both complete and healthy for your cat. To ensure your cat receives the nutrients that are required to stay healthy, you can ask your vet for supplements.


To make a raw diet, you'll likely need the following tools and materials:


  • A large cutting board that can go in the dishwasher

  • Meat grinder

  • Poultry shears

  • Stainless steel or glass mixing bowls

  • Disposable gloves

  • Storage containers

  • Freezer and refrigerator space


Raw food diets must contain the following ingredients:


  • Raw meat from muscles and organs (good sources include poultry, rabbit, and fish)

  • Raw bones, ground

  • Eggs

  • Supplements (often required for balanced nutrients)


The key is to ask your vet for the most suitable homemade raw food for cats.


Also, it's important to note that homemade requires a lot of time and effort because you need to ensure the cleanliness of the food to prevent pathogens.
