Included With Every Recipe
Each recipe is uses nutrient-dense whole foods and supplements, as necessary, to create a meal plan that is complete and balanced for your pet. Each formulation is built from our pet’s specific nutritional requirements (NRC, FEDIAF or AAFCO), health status, condition, and growth stage. I only use ingredients listed on your intake form (based on what you say you can easily access), so meal plans are also affordable and practical for the owners.

A recipe tailored for an adult cat, based on their activity level and size. 30 minutes of adjustment time and follow-up is also included. Cat must be generally healthy (food intolerances are okay).
For multiple cat (clowder) formulations, there is a $15 fee per additional cat for each recipe.
If you need help with a clinical recipe for cats with significant health conditions, I recommend Bonnie Edkin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I have a few raw NRC balanced recipe for healthy adult cats available for purchase in the RFN store here.
You can view the ingredient list for these recipes before purchasing the recipe, and all recipes are designed to be entered into the RFN Sheet for further customization and alterations as desired.
Recipes must be fed according to feeding chart in order to meet nutritional guidelines. If you need a weight loss recipe, please contact me.

Most frequent questions and answers
Recipes can be raw or cooked, your preference! For some pets, a cooked recipe is better, particularly for older animals, pets with GI issues, or with low appetite.
All recipes are balanced to nutritional standards set by the NRC or FEDIAF. When whole foods falls short, supplements may be included to meet your pet’s nutritional needs. I work with each owner to determine if they want to maximize whole foods (which may be more costly or require more prep time) or if they prefer to use affordable or easily accessible cuts (which may not be as nutritionally impactful).
Unusually yes. I can also formulate to FEDIAF or AAFCO standards!
On your intake form, you list the whole foods that are easily accessible to you. Recipes are made only with these ingredients. Before the recipe is finalized, I will also send you a “final ingredient check”. This includes a list of all the foods included your recipe so far, so you can double check that you can source the ingredients easily, before the recipe is finalized.
Once the recipe is finalized, there is an additional fee if it requires ingredient changes if you are not able to source ingredients.
All recipes include some time for adjustment. This can include swapping out minor ingredients if you’d like to use a different supplement, because the pet cannot (or will not) eat it anymore, or if food needs to be increased or decreased. Growth recipes for puppies also include further adjustments for growth, so that the recipe is appropriate throughout the growth process.
Recipes are formulated for a single pet, unless you are specifically requesting a pack or clowder recipe. Since the recipe has been formulated for a specific pet, it may not be appropriate to use for other animals.
