NV Instinct Raw and Taurine

My husband came to pick up some NV Instinct Raw for Luna while we are on holidays and noticed the canine version is a lot cheaper than the feline...and the only difference on ingredients was the addition of taurine for feline. We have powdered taurine and he was wondering if it was possible to add a small amount to the canine version. Thoughts?

Carrie,
I was hoping one of our "foodies" would jump on this!
But, I think, that is what some of them have done! Or they use it as part of a rotation!

If that's definitely the only difference, then yes that would be fine. You probably already know this, but I learned on this forum that it's impossible to overdose taurine - the cat will eliminate what it doesn't need.

Thanks Sharon and Heather...the ingredient list is exactly the same on the two bags with the exception of taurine. I do intend to try, like Sharon suggested, alternating within the day between kinds. Thankfully Luna eats anything raw like she has never seen food before! When I return I will try to see if there is any better comparison of amounts of ingredients online somewhere.

Thanks again!
