I am curious what everyone's thoughts are on feeding a raw diet for diabetic cats. It seems to be a topic of debate, but most of the criticism on it seems to center around risks of parasites/bacteria. But if sourced and prepared correctly, can a raw diet be a healthy alternative? It just seems more natural to me, and it seems like even the healthiest brands of marketed food have unnecessary fillers and unnatural ingredients. The vet recommended any canned food, as she said that all are high in protein and low in carbs. So I was feeding Pumpkin a can of Friskies this morning, and there were giant chunks of rice in it. I checked the labels on all the varieties I had and sure enough, carbs are listed as the second or third ingredient. So I'm immediately getting rid of all the cans and exploring other alternatives. I had some meat in my freezer so I'll be using that for the rest of her meals this weekend until I figure something out. Does anyone have any suggestions/recipes for homemade foods healthy for diabetics, either raw or cooked?
