Baby food I have heard good things about too. As for great recipes for your pets, (whether completely homemade or supplemented) try Dr. Pitcairn's
book for dogs and cats, and Anitra Frazier's
book called, "The New Natural Cat" (
for just cats)
Dr. Pitcairn is a vet who did extensive research into what an animal would eat in the wild, Anitra uses the same basis for her cat diet. It's rather common sense when you look at it that way. A cat does not come across a diseased and decaying mouse and say, "Yum!" (or for that matter, scraps of chicken manure! lol)
Anyway, love this thread, very interesting how we all manage to keep our 4-leggeds up and healthy.
