I’ve been on here many times about the beginning formation of struvite crystals, but I’m having a problem finding a food Trixie will continue to eat.
Would like to know if a raw diet might be in order? Totally forget the BB kibble.
She loves the Wellness no grain lamb but now that I mix it with kibble she can’t be bothered. Also it gives her terrible gas. She seems tired of the Stella and Chewy too.
I got organic chicken jerky from a place in Maine but that’s only a safe treat. Anything good for training treats that won’t make her condition worse.
A raw diet would be best; it has the most moisture which is very important. Are you looking to do a pre made or are you doing your own?
Well right now I need to stick with pre-made. Any recommendations. She’s so picky ):
You have to decide if you want prey model (no fruits or veggies) or barf type, with them.
I don’t do fruits or veggies, I buy ground & scoop it out. Premades that are prey model are Vital Essentials & Primal. Pretty sure Primal is.
Pre mades that have them are Stella & Chewys, Natures Variety (I don’t like them), Answers and Steve’s real food as well.moh and Darwins (available only from them).
okay I’m going to try prey model vital essentials and/or primal first.
she like pears and apples, I can give those as treats. anyway i believe they are more meat eaters.
Thank you so much!
You may want to visit Dr. Strombeck’s site for urinary tract diets. His website is a fantastic resource for understanding canine/feline nutrition. These are cooked diets, which may make it easier for many who want to find something between RAW and Kibble or the very expensive RAW commercial offerings.
I made one of his recipes (not urinary) yesterday using my .5 RMB grind (ground chicken quarters with liver/heart/gizzard/vegetables) and .5 ground turkey (same ratios) as the meat source RAW. To say that it was a really big hit is an understatement.
Whatever recipe you make for her that satisfies the dietary requirements can be relegated to an oven (no bone). I use a cookie press and spritz it out on a silipat lined baking sheet and cook. I then take them off the sheet, put on a rack and back in the warm oven. Once crunchy take a knife and cut into appropriately sized pieces. Store in baggies in freezer. Take out what you need.
Thank you Leisa- When I have time I’ll give that a try too.
Okay so I tried Nature’ Valley Prairie Raw Frozen last night…she ate it up, this morning at 5am she left it so before I left…it had been out for about an hour…I wrapped in plastic and put it into the fridge. Can I give it to her tonight? Is it safe?
I gave her a grain free Petite Entree from Wellness and she ate that!
I couldn’t find the recommended brands at Unleashed.
She loves Petite Entrees by Wellness needs 4 a day.
