As a pet owner, no doubt you want to give your dog or cat the best care possible. And caring for
your pet means feeding him the best diet you can.
Animals, because they are color blind, choose their foods by smell. Most dogs like gamey flavors
best, as well as liver, fat, garlic, onions, horsemeat, lamb, beef, cheese and fish. Cats enjoy chicken,
liver, fish, turkey, lamb, and yeast, and prefer fresh to aged flavors.
Remember that cats are fussy eaters and it is not wise to continually feed them their favorite foods.
Soon they will refuse to eat anything else; it is your job to see your cat has a balanced diet.
Animals do not need salt added to their diet as the natural salt in the food is enough for them.
Dogs may eat any vegetable they want, but cats should not have any starchy veggies, like peas and
corn. Some dogs and cats even enjoy fruits!
It's a good idea to always add a grain, such as Kibble, wheat germ, cooked oatmeal or whole wheat
bread to meat dinners. For dogs use 75% carbohydrate foods (grains and vegetables) to 25% meat;
for cats use half carbohydrate foods to half meat.
You will find, once you begin making your own pet foods, that it is really relatively simple and you
will save some money as well. remember that all pet foods should be served at room temperature;
don't serve food cold from the refrigerator nor hot from the stove.
Incidentally, you should know that cats should be fed three times a day, while an adult dog needs
only one meal a day.
