-All human food is not bad. Focus on unprocessed, whole, fresh foods.

  • By making 5%-10% of your pet’s diet comprised of fresh, unprocessed, whole foods…the health and immune system are greatly improved.
  • Not just fresh fruits and veggies but turkey, duck and chicken necks are amazing to be added to a diet. Along with raw meat bones and muscle meat.
  • All these ideas are for supplemental feeding. Meaning it should be used in an addition to your pet’s typical pet food. Making a home-prepared diet, whether cooked or raw, does need specific portions of meat, bone, organs and then fruits and veggies.
  • If you are feeding a home-prepared diet and are not including organs and a calcium source, it is most likely an unbalanced diet. Ma & Paws can help you get balanced.
  • Speaking of balance, don’t think you need to get every meal balanced. Think balance over time.
