Your Guide to TCVM Homemade Cat Food Recipes

If you’re looking for homemade cat food recipes, you’ve landed in the right place!

Here you will find veterinarian-formulated, TCVM food therapy slow cooker recipes for different cat health needs.

Why Make Homemade Cat Food?

There are several reasons why people choose to make homemade cat food:

  • Quality control: Making homemade cat food gives you complete control over your cat’s diet ingredients. You’ll ensure your cat receives high-quality, nutritious ingredients without fillers, additives, or artificial preservatives.
  • Dietary restrictions or allergies: Some cats have specific nutritional requirements or allergies that may not be adequately addressed by commercial cat food. By preparing homemade cat food, you can tailor the ingredients to meet your cat’s needs, such as avoiding certain allergens or incorporating specific nutrients.
  • Health benefits: Homemade cat food can offer potential health benefits for your feline companion. You can customize the recipe to support your cat’s overall health, including weight management, dental health, and specific conditions like kidney disease or digestive issues. Our recipes use TCVM theory, so you can use food to help with chronic health challenges.
  • Freshness and taste: Preparing homemade cat food ensures the ingredients are fresh and the flavors can be more appealing to your cat. This may encourage finicky eaters or cats with a reduced appetite to consume their meals more willingly.
  • Bonding and engagement: Making homemade cat food can be a rewarding experience that deepens the bond between you and your cat. It allows you to actively participate in your cat’s well-being and care, promoting a sense of connection and engagement.

It’s important to note that creating balanced and nutritionally complete homemade cat food requires careful research and consultation with a veterinarian or a veterinary nutritionist.

Improperly balanced homemade diets can lead to nutrient deficiencies or imbalances, harming your cat’s health.

We recommend sharing our recipes with your veterinarian before changing your cat’s diet.
