Cooked Food Recipe for Cats

Meal for a Cat

*cats should be fed two meals per day

  • 1/2 cup organic cooked ground turkey or beef (90% lean:10% fat)
  • 1/2 hard boiled egg (duck egg preferred)
  • 2 tbsp organic ground or pureed vegetables, such as pumpkin, squash, peas, cantaloupe or asparagus (or organic baby food)
  • 1 tbsp cooked salmon (or) 1 sardine
  • 250 mg taurine (Very important!)
  • 250 mg calcium citrate (*balanced with magnesium and vitamin D)
  • 5 drops cod liver oil (approx. 50 IU)
  • 5 drops liquid vitamin E (approx. 50 IU)
  • 30 mg coenzyme Q10

Once a Week

  • 2 tbsp organic liver

Optional

  • 1 tbsp quinoa (or) couscous if your cat is more than 10 years old, or has a tendency to become constipated.
  • 1 tsp minced fresh organic parsley daily. Parsley has many benefits including kidney cleansing and providing antioxidants that can help prevent gingivitis.
  • 1 tsp Dr. Donna’s Vitamin Powder

Important Notes

  • It’s important to weigh your cat when beginning any new diet. Having a baseline and tracking their weight will help you in adjusting quantities should they lose, or gain too much.
  • If your cat has a history of urinary tract infections, struvite or calcium oxalate stones, please ask your veterinarian for guidance.
  • Track your cat’s urinary pH because it’s directly linked to, and impacted by their diet. You can buy pH strips at most pharmacies. The normal pH level for cats 6.0.
