Bones are an important part of the evolutionary nutrition principles for dogs.

There are two main types of bones: edible bones and recreational bones. The most important part of feeding bones is that they must always be fed raw. Kangaroo femurs can be suitable as occasional ‘recreational bones’, especially for large dogs whose jaws can fit around these.

These are not intended to supply nutrition, but are meant to be gnawed on to help keep teeth clean, and to stimulate mind and body. They are a complementary food – to be fed in conjunction with a complete & balanced diet.

Dogs should always be supervised while eating bones to ensure that they are not swallowed in chunks (as they can cause a blockage), or damage teeth or gums.

Ingredients: 100% Australian Kangaroo leg bones

Size: 2 Bones

 

Why feed raw?
The BARF raw food diet mimics the diet your canine’s wild ancestors’ lifestyle, which is ideal for pets that can’t ingest the modern-day diet of pre-packaged and processed pet foods. The BARF diet is high-protein and is made up of 80-95% raw meat, offals, and meaty bones and a small amount of pet-friendly fruits and vegetables. By changing to the raw food diet, your pet can experience significant changes, from healing common illnesses and ailments to having increased energy and reduce stool volume and odour. 

Kangaroo, Chicken, Beef and/or Pork and/or Lamb (includes meat, finely ground bones and offal), Whole Eggs, Carrots, Apples, Salmon frames, Yoghurt, Dehydrated Kelp plus other assorted seasonal vegetables and/or fruits

Kangaroo Recipe Feeding Guide:

Note: Kangaroo Recipe for Cats is not suitable for kittens or pregnant/lactating female cats unless you feed in rotation with Dr. B’s Turkey Recipe.

Reduced Energy patties for cats include Dr. B’s BARF Kangaroo Recipe.

 

  • They are most suitable during early pregnancy, for healthy adult and older cats.
  • These patties are recommended for overweight cats, needing to lose weight.
  • They may be used for highly active outdoor cats, but the amount fed may need to be increased.
  • These patties are less suitable during mid to late pregnancy, but the amount fed may need to be increased.
  • They are not ideal during lactation or for growing kittens; the high energy patties are more suitable.

This may be divided into 2 meals and the quantity reduced if fed as only part of the entire diet. Every animal is an individual and this is a guide only: adjust the feeding level to maintain desired body condition. Always ensure plenty of fresh, clean water is available for your pet.

Note that the exact nutritional analysis for each BARF recipe will vary slightly with seasonal changes. This may cause differences in colour and consistency.  Such variations are normal and serve to enhance health in accordance with the Evolutionary Principles of Nutrition.  There is no need to adjust the feeding level to adjust for these changes.

Healthy adult cats: feed approx. 4% of bodyweight daily, divided into 2-3 meals.

  • The majority of cats are not highly active, so this guide should suffice for most adult cats as well as older cats, however highly active outdoor cats may need to be fed 5% (even up to 6% in rare cases) of bodyweight daily, divided into several meals.
  • For overweight cats, the feeding level may need to be reduced by up to 20–30% daily, in order to encourage weight loss.

Growing kittens: feed 5-6% of bodyweight daily, divided into 4-5 meals when young, reducing to 2-3 meals per day as they reach adulthood.

Feeding during pregnancy is divided into thirds, paralleling the growth of the kittens and increasing energy needs of the pregnant female:

  • For the first ⅓ of pregnancy: feed 4% of bodyweight daily, divided into 2-3 meals.
  • For the second ⅓ of pregnancy: feed 4-5% of bodyweight per day, divided into 3 meals.
  • For the last ⅓ of pregnancy: feed 5-6% of bodyweight per day, divided into 4 meals.
  • During lactation, depending on litter size and the age of the kittens: feed at least 5% of bodyweight per day up to free choice with large litters.

Note that these are guides only. Always adjust the amount you feed your cat to maintain the desired body weight and condition.
