I am thinking about checking out the prices at a local butcher for Uber's food. Is there a difference between the meat for humans and what the pets eat? Are there any questions I should ask them?
Yes, human food can be purchased unfrozen but raw pet food must be frozen. The key is that when meat thaws, that's when bacteria begins to grow. Now human food is meant to be cooked and cooking kills any bacteria, so it's fine to buy the meat from the refrigerated section in your grocery store, cook it and eat it. However, food that is to be eaten raw should be kept frozen until you are ready to use it. This is why you aren't supposed to buy food at the grocery store to feed raw to pets. Butcher shops are better for sourcing frozen meat.I am thinking about checking out the prices at a local butcher for Uber's food.

Haha well that confirms it was good decision to put it in! For better or worse, that's the only resource I know where they will help you come up with a customized feeding plan and shopping list. For $85 I would have done it if it existed back when I started out. However, I did a phone consultation with Dr. Pierson.LOL, I just realized I already added that website! LOL
