Size


Better in the Raw for Cats is a whole food supplement for preparing a raw meat diet for cats.  This healthy diet is ideal for all life stages and is made with 100% human grade ingredients.  Many of the diseases associated with commercial cat foods can be avoided with a raw meat diet.

No grains of any kind are used.  Just add raw meat and water.

Better in the Raw for Cats is designed to be combined with water and raw human grade meat in the amounts and proportions stated in our literature.  It is not a food for cats on its own nor meant to be a sprinkle-on vitamin supplement.  All other cat foods should be removed from the cat's meal plan, including dry food.

Egg yolk, calcium lactate, beef liver powder, gelatin, whey protein concentrate, psyllium husks, EFA from fish oil, taurine, kelp, barley grass powder, Vitamin B complex, Vitamin E succinate.

The ingredients we use to make Better in the Raw for Cats are without exception of human grade quality. All materials are 100% natural, and no preservatives, colours, or other artificial additives are used. None of our ingredients are sourced from China.

How to switch your cat to a healthy diet?

When transitioning cats from commercial foods to the raw diet, they can occasionally show some reluctance. If this is the case we recommend that you mix their favorite canned food into the raw mixture. Over the next week or two gradually decrease the canned food until it is eliminated. Also when you are preparing the food, using ice cube trays to freeze the meat mix is a good way to waist less food. Dry cat food should be removed from the meal plan.

Choosing the Meat

Chicken, turkey, beef, venison, lamb or pork are all good choices. The meat must be fresh, raw and fit for human consumption. Use ground or cut into small cubes. We recommend feeding a variety of meats and rotating these choices if possible. Meat should be no greater than 15-20% fat content. When transitioning cats to this raw diet, poultry has proven to be the best option.

Avoid feeding raw fish and mixing different kinds of meat into one meal. The domestic cat is a carnivore and the digestive system is not designed to tolerate the consumption of vegetables or grains.

Feeding Kittens?

Kittens do not usually require a transitioning period as they have not been programmed to identify only with commercial foods. They can be fed this diet as young as 4 weeks of age, however this does not replace the necessity of nursing. Kittens should be fed 4 meals per day until 4 months old, and then 3 meals per day until they are 12 months of age.
