Cat Diet Improved

November 2021
.
This short post is in reference to previous post.
.
This is just a quick summary of what has been implemented. My cats weigh 7 to 8 lbs each
.
♦ Raw ground sirloin 1 tbsp each.
.
♦ Cooked chicken thighs a few scoops on top of cat food. Substituted a raw chicken heart or chicken liver (about 1 or 2 tsp.)
.
Olive oil 1/2 tsp per day (AM)
.
Lysine 1/8 tsp per day, until improvement in both cats, then 1/8 tsp twice a week.
.
Taurine 1 scoop per day per cat. No side effects for giving too much. ( Of course a person needs to be realistic in the amount.)
.
Oratene Toothpaste Gel after each meal.
.
SeaMeal 1/8 tsp twice a day.
.
Bone meal seems to be about 1/8 tsp per 1 oz of food. Since I am adding cans, I probably only need 1/8 tsp per day per cat.
.
Note: Always consult your vet. This is only my experience for my cats. I am not a vet and can’t advise you how to feed your cats.
