My seven-year-old tom cat needs a special diet to prevent urinary tract problems. I am a keen cook and wondered if I could make fresh cat food – but I’d need the right recipe. Any suggestions?
The challenge with home cooking for pets is to ensure that the recipe is nutritionally balanced, which is especially important if a special veterinary-type diet is needed. You can consult online veterinary nutritionists (for example, balanceit.com) who will provide appropriate recipes, liaising with your own vet when needed to check clinical details, and supplying special dietary supplements to ensure that the final meal provides everything your cat needs.
