Well, Gracie's tummy seems to be all settled in with her new regimen - about half raw and half good canned. I think I was overfeeding her a little which was part of the problem, she seems fine with maybe two tablespoons of raw plus a dollop of canned on the side. So I have done chopped chicken dark meat & chicken liver, and we are now on chopped turkey breast & chicken liver, and ground turkey dark meat & beef liver. I've frozen it into a ice cube tray for portions, and keep the rest in the freezer.
Too bad I bought so much canned food, it will take us forever to finish at this rate, but oh well. I think I will drop the Evangers when we are all done, and only keep feeding the By Nature organics and the Evo 95% duck and venison later on. Those are by far her favorite canned flavors, and I think they are the best in quality.
But I must say I am very disappointed at the offerings at the two butcher's counters I have been to - the quantities and availability will be tricky. All the unusual poultry or other meats like venison must be special ordered or come in vast
quantities. (Fifty pounds of venison, anyone???) And just beef liver, no chicken or other types... I was fantasizing I'd be in the kitchen like a Julia Child for kitties
, cheerful chopping quail hearts into duck tidbits, with venison and squab wings on the side...
