How can I tell...
...if she's getting enough nutrition?
My cat looks fabulous and has a ton of energy. She's 9 years old and has been on raw for a few months now (I think almost 6 or so).
Anyway, she hasn't gained enough jaw strength to eat full bones so I've been getting them ground. Every once in a while I will put a chicken rib in her bowl with her other food but she hasn't yet been able to break one down.
The problem with ground bones, besides obviously not encouraging her strength, is that she doesn't eat the bigger chunks. She will chew the small chunks of bone but if there's anything the size of a dime or larger she won't even touch it.
I just want to make sure she's getting enough nutrients out of the ground bones that way. Maybe it's hard to tell if you can't see the food.
Thanks for any info you can give me!
