raw meat, but no organs or bone yet
When you are starting your kittens on a raw diet, how long can you go without them getting the appropriate amount of bone and organs? I've just started giving them strips of chicken breast. I haven't been able to find kidneys or liver yet (but will try looking again tomorrow). In addition, they aren't able to eat bones yet. They definitely tried, but didn't even make a dent in the bone. I did try hitting the bones with a mallet, which didn't do much good either. Peanut and Pumpkin are about 6-6.5 months old. Looking at old threads, it looks like younger kittens have been able to eat bone, so I'm not sure why these two are having so much trouble. I'll try giving them some egg shells tonight.
So how long do I have before they become affected by the lack of appropriate nutrients? They still get some grain free canned food (which I'm hoping makes up for the lack of bones and organs).
