Vet's All Natural - in australia

Has anyone ever tried vet's all natural? it was designed by a vet in aus that believes in BARF and so its basically a kilo of barley, oats, grasses and small amounts of veggies that you mix with 5 kilos of meat.

I have my kitten, Leo, on it at the moment and im planning to go 100% raw as soon as ive used up the rest of the food that i have left. but im starting to worry a little about it :/ it makes the meals about 17% veggies and grains.

Just wondering if anyone else has ever used it.

Plus i'm getting a little OCD with complete raw so excited to start it

Personally, I don't think I'd use it, as cats have no need for plants in their food. When one of my barn cats goes out and catches their own food, they eat all of it, with the exception of the stomach/intestines. They don't have any nutritional needs coming from the plant matter in the bunny/mouse, so they skip it. Myths About Raw: Do wolves eat stomach contents of prey? explains how wolves (aka dogs) eat their prey. Warning: this is explained to graphically for some. Proceed at your own risk

I feed prey model raw, also known as frankenprey, which is explained at Nature's Prey Model. So, that method is what I know the most about, since it is what I feed

I wouldn't feed this food, either, for the same reasons Furryfriends already mentioned. With the exception of the frozen raw meats I purchase from Hare Today, fresh, raw, meat and organs right off the grocery store's shelves is all that I feed to my six little furfaces.

Best regards!
