    Stella & Chewy's Freeze Dried Raw Food: Astrid's Eating Wet Food!!!!

    So, as some of you know, Astrid refuses to eat wet food. BUT she is eating the Chicken freeze dried raw stuff rehydrated!!! I think it's because it doesn't smell nasty; I pretty much had to stick my nose into her bowl to smell it. It does not smell like wet food at all! So hopefully she keeps...

    Kitten vomiting raw food. Help?

    We've had our kitten for about 10 weeks now. We started him on raw food (from Hare today gone tomorrow) with organ and bone in. Added Alnutrin specific for bone in food. He was great and had awesome poops for a few weeks (7 weeks or so?). About two weeks ago we came home to a huge pile of vomit...

    Raw food and vitamins?

    hi, i'm new to Sphynxlair. I have a 6 month old Donskoy that I am going to start feeding raw. Ground beef and chicken with turkey necks. Can I just give him a daily multi vitamin to make sure he is getting all his nutrients? It all seems so confusing!

    Primal freeze dried/frozen raw reviews?

    Hi there, I'm thinking of feeding my future Sphynx kitten Primal raw for 2 main reasons: cutting down the poop smell/issues and for overall health. Would you recommend this brand? It looks easy to prepare the portions and seems nutritious. What experiences have you had feeding this to your Sphynx?

    Picky Eaters

    So when I picked Toothless up from the breeder she warned me that she was a picky eater. I didn't think anything of it, Elfie was already on raw and I knew that the transition may be slow but that we would get there in the end. What I didn't count on was just how STUBBORN this kitten was going...

    I've given up!

    So, after weeks and weeks of stress of Jack not properly eating his raw diet ... I have given up and switched him back to kibble and canned cat food.

    Cost and amounts?

    I’m considering starting a raw diet and am trying to figure out the logistics of it all. If what I’m figuring is correct, this seems WAY more expensive than what I’m currently feeding. However, it’s entirely possible that I’m way off base here…. Help please haha I have 2 adult cats and will be...

    Raw vs dry?

    My girls have been eating Merrick both dry and wet food for the past year and a half. Aside from horrible smelling poop, there have been no issues. They both love it. However, I'm having trouble finding the food now. I think there may be distributor issues? I've been considering raw or perhaps a...
