I should say here that I am on the fence about raw food.
I feed Target and Guido raw beef - but I wouldn't feed them raw chicken or other meat as I would worry about salmonella. The beef they get is top quality, carpaccio and steak tartare quality, and I eat it raw too. I would feed them sashami fish but it's too expensive.
I don't believe anyone should prepare all food for their pets at home, unless they are qualified animal nutritionists. There is just too much juggling that goes into making food that has the right ingredients in the right proportions.
Because of this concern, I feed my pets manufactured food too. Biscuits which I think help clean teeth, and quality wet food that has lots of taurine and all that other stuff that's essential for kitties.
Contamination and dodgy factories means that I never buy food or treats made in China. I usually opt for products made in Thailand. Touch wood it's been OK so far.
As a caveat, I have to say that if my pets had allergies, or if Thailand started having pet food scandals, I would rethink all this - and probably end up taking a course in pet nutrition.
I'd be curious to discover what you all think about this issue.
See you Monday for Target's Gotcha Day?
