I want to start raw.
After trying to find the purrfect food for my kitty, I have lost at the game of dry and canned food for SkipJack. He is passing gas like crazy and the stools...oh the stools are slimy and stinky! They are horrendous. The vet has done 2 separate fecal exams, both came back negative for parasites, just very high in lipids (fat content). For that, I would like to start him into a raw diet, but worried on how much it's going to cost me. I read Pierson's links thoroughly, but when I added up all the ingredients it came out to be nearly $100 for 40-44 days ($22 for shipping the rabbit ground meat added into cost), and that's without the grinder factored into the cost. Does this sound correct to anybody feeding raw? Also, I would be keeping the rest of the food in the freezer. Do I really need to pressure cook the ballpark jars? I don't have a pressure cooker, and really don't want to spend anymore than I have to for feeding my baby raw.
