Both cats and dogs require a complete, balanced diet in order to thrive and reduce health risks. A full balance should be fed every day, with a mix of 3-5 proteins per week and an egg 1-2 times per week.


A general baseline for a balanced diet includes:

80% meats (for cats, 20% of this meat must be heart)

10% edible bone

5% liver

5% organ

Other helpful informatin

  • Puppies and kittens require a higher fat diet until they reach their full body size (usually around 1 year, or up to 2 years for giant breeds). Fats and oils should be included in 10-20% of their diet
  • Cats must have at least 20% heart in their diet. Unlike dogs, cats can't synthesize their own taurine, therefore it must be provided in their diet
  • Salmon is the best source of omega 3
  • Skipping feeding bones can increase the risk of bone and joint disease, especially in growing puppies. Feeding meat only is high in phosphorus and low in calcium
