Tips for making homemade recipes

There are many benefits of home food for our cats, however, it is very important to choose the ingredients correctly and to follow the indications of the expert so as not to create nutritional deficiencies in the long term, if you always want to eat it in a homemade way.

Felines in the wild are strict carnivores , meaning they only feed on what they hunt. This keeps us with an appropriate nutritional balance to face day to day. For this reason, it is not surprising that currently the BARF diet is used , which is based on these principles. Before putting your hands in the dough, we want to offer you some tips not to fail in the attempt:

  • There are some forbidden foods for cats such as grapes, raisins, avocados, chocolate, processed foods from humans or raw onions, among others.
  • Do not mix commercial food with homemade food in the same meal, it can cause discomfort in your digestion.
  • You should always moisturize your cat, leaving water at your disposal.
  • If your cat suffers from any pathology or allergy, consult with your veterinarian about what ingredients you can not eat.
  • Beware of the rations that you offer, you should not offer too much or too poor.

Always consult the veterinarian to guide and advise you on the best possible way because he knows our feline and just like us, wants the best for him. Continue reading and find out the 4 Christmas recipes for cats that can prepare you.
