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.
How to Get Started
Healthy Adult Recipe
1 Recipe: $45 | 2 Recipes: $85 | 3 Recipes: $125 | Additional Cat: $15/Recipe
A raw or cooked recipe formulated specifically for your cat. Recipes are formulated only around your easily accessible ingredients. Each recipe includes adjustments during the formulation process and 15 minutes of aftercare for questions.
Eligible Cats: Adult cats without health conditions. Allergies, seniors, and weight loss cases are okay. If your cat has IBD, severe allergies, or heart, kidney or liver conditions, your case is not eligible.
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.
If you need help with substitutions, weight loss or have other questions regarding a premade 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, FEDIAF or AAFCO. 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).
Usually 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 with only 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.
Before I finalize recipes and send out a recipe report, I send clients an “Ingredient Check”. This is a list of all the foods and supplements that would be included in the recipe. At this point, clients can request changes to the ingredient list for any reason so that the recipe is adjusted before it’s finalized.
Growth recipes for puppies also include further adjustments for growth, so that the recipe is appropriate throughout the growth process.
If you need an adjustment after the recipe report is complete, an additional fee would apply.
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.
