My dogs & cats are on a rotational, fresh foods & some raw, some dehydrated & freeze-dried foods. The dog is on a low-starch diet, so if one of his dehydrated or freeze-dried foods have more starch than it should, I add protein to it. The cats are on a grain-free diet. During a typical week, a breakfast might be kibble (Wysong, Nature's Logic, Fromm for the dog) & kibble (Instinct, Farmina, Nature's Logic) for the cats. Dinner would be some of their dehydrated food with an added protein -OR- a totally raw meal of minced meat, some organ meat and some bone. They get a different protein each meal. (I don't combine kibble with fresh or raw meat as it can cause inflammation.)
For fresh foods, I sometimes add chopped organic kale or parsley to their kibble. They enjoy chopped boiled egg, cottage cheese, goat's milk, kefir, plain Greek yogurt, berries, chopped veggies (broccoli, carrots, peas, green beans, brussel sprouts, sauerkraut) sometimes fresh, sometimes steamed. They get sardines a few times a week. Coconut Oil & Wild Salmon Oil daily.
They get sweet potatoes, pumpkin about once a week. I add different supplements to their foods on a rotational basis.
They're all very healthy, no health issues, clean teeth, healthy skin & coat, no ear infections, no yeast problems, nothing. They range in age from 4-12. (The one cat was given to me at death's door, and she is corona-virus positive. She has a few issues from being over-treated at her previous vet until they gave up on her and recommended euthanasia. She's been doing 90% better, I've had her a year & a month.) She LOVES to eat healthy and she's a healthy 8 lbs now with a soft, shiny coat.
For a treat, my cats enjoy a raw chicken leg, it keeps their teeth looking great also. I try to keep the dog's meals coordinated with the cat's meals.
