They used to sell it to put in baby bottles of milk in the 70s and 80s
Every major industry does this with their byproducts. The entire petfood industry began because food processing plants wanted to find a use for leftovers not fit for human consumption. So they cooked it down and formed it into kibble and added loads of artificial colorants and fragrances so it smells like meat. Pets didn’t start getting all these financially crushing people diseases until people bought into kibble and canned pet foods (and vaccines). And the super pricey “veterinarian approved” brands aren’t much better.
What do you recommend feeding a indoor cat bro? I’m living out here in Mexico.
I wish I could feed my dogs and cats a fully raw diet, but I can’t. Prey model is best for cats (mine are outdoor/barn cats, so they hunt for themselves). They need taurine, and this is found in highest concentrations in heart and other organ meats.
Dogs are the same, I give them what I can and get green tripe for them now and again if I can find it and convince someone to sell it to me, and organ meat.
Bone-in raw meats are awesome for dogs and cats and I offer it to them whenever I can. They will chew the entire thing, crunch up the bones, and swallow it whole together. The first time you offer a smallish piece, just be sure to hold onto it so they don’t think they can gulp it down without chewing – as soon as they bite into the bone, they get the picture.
Any parts we won’t be using on harvest day for our livestock I feed to them. If you don’t keep any other animals for food, you can occasionally offer chicken or fish or whatever is available there, bone in and see how they do. It helps to clean their teeth. For older animals, it may be easier to begin them on flat bones, like in thigh meat, breast bones, etc as their teeth may not be in very good condition. Younger animals do fine with almost any bone, just be careful in giving too much to puppies of large breeds (dogs, mainly, which I know you didn’t mention) because it can cause wobbler’s syndrome and other problems in my understanding (too quick growth with not enough corresponding bone strength).
I do need to feed both dogs and cats kibble also, but I buy it through our co-op and they don’t seem as constantly hungry on it (although it may be wishful thinking on my part). I know my other animals do much better on co-op feed than box store brands.
I supplement them (dogs and cats) with eggs from my own coop, fish, fat drippings, bone broths and any other meaty leftovers we have and I’ve never had to take these to the vet.
My oldest dog (doberman) had parvo as a pup and was treated with 2 courses of meds from the vet and was still sick until I bought a broad-spectrum, natural tincture, which entirely cured her. She has not required any medical care since and she is nearly 9y.o. Her teeth are all healthy, etc.
Our dog before that came to us about age 15y.o. (husky mix) and had rotted teeth (vet said she’d need surgery or would die of infection), bad skin and fur, etc. I had to chop bite-sized bits of soft, raw meat initially and give her only flat bones, and she didn’t know what to do with it when I first offered it to her, lol, but she lived quite a few good years after that, never needed surgery, and did a pretty solid job after awhile of keeping up with the doberman youngster racing around the property, as even her arthritis improved.
I give them treats of peanut butter, sweet potato, beets, carrot, etc – really any veggies as they do enjoy them, but they need these things in minimal amounts if at all – it’s more for fun (carnivores get their veggies from stomach contents of prey animals).
You could also see if there are any breeders around who raise small animals to feed snakes and buy some whole ones for your cats, or raise some yourself.
My mom’s cats lived on all the cow milk they could drink and if they wanted anything else it was whatever they caught. She said they were extra healthy and had no diseases
If you have a way to get raw cow milk with the cream and all in it you could do that too and then give them some raw food on the side.
I’ve made my own raw food for my cats for years starting back in 2005 to around 2010 and it’s cheaper in the long run than buying wet food, they did great health wise, but be aware it costs more up front to buy all the ingredients. I went to the bookstore and found several recipes written by people who specialized in cat food and what was needed. I picked a few recipes I thought would work and give them everything they needed by comparing them all and seeing what was most common etc, wrote them down and then later picked the best recipe that I could find all the ingredients for in Whole Foods where everything isn’t tainted with hormones and whatever other things they want to poison the population with. The recipe that sounded best was also easy because it was chicken and not something hard to find like duck or lamb. I ground it all up then froze it in little plastic Tupperware type cups so I wouldn’t have to make a batch every day. Instead every day I took 3 out of the freezer and put it into the refrigerator to thaw for the next day. They had smaller poops that didn’t smell as much, ate less and were excited enough that they would growl when they ate. They were kittens that were thrown out in the middle of nowhere and starving by their dead siblings so this really excited their food desires.
The recipe was something like
Vitamin e d b and possibly c
Salmon Fish oil
And packet of feline vitamins in a gold packaging I’ll try to find it… You just blend it all up into a pink pulp, kind of like making a meat cake.
The cats were very healthy and the only reason I went back to other food was because working 10 to 12 hours a day. Whatever you do don’t feed cooked* bones to them or it can kill them since the bones get brittle and can get stuck. They can eat raw bones fine. I’ve seen cats eat entire rabbits, birds, mice, grasshoppers, lizards, snakes etc. Another thing.. I have seen online recipe makers for both dogs and cats now adays I’m not sure how good they are. I have more time and tried again last year to make food but destroyed my blender when I didn’t cut the chicken up enough into small pieces because the tendons and far wrapped around the blade so be aware of that-of course a meat grinder would be awesome to have… If I can find the vitamins I’ll write down the name in case it will help you or anyone else
