I'm sure it would be ok if its labelled barf. Just check the ingredients - ni is 85% chicken and bone with veg, fruit, fish oil and kelp. If the one you are getting is just meat and bone, you could always add some ground veg of your own. You could also give chicken wings and tinned tuna or sardines.
I'm really confused as to what to feed Pushca now us NI every day not good then? One post suggests two days a month give a veggie offal mix then one day starve ( detox) I usually give Pushca 2 meals a day and would love any tips.
I think you can drive yourself a bit mad with all the alternatives. Most of us seem to be of the opinion that barf is the healthiest diet. If you want to do it yourself then its important to research and balance it properly. If you want the easiest and safest way, then ni has done it for you. No choking hazard, a correct mix to avoid constipation issues, double-ground veg to maximize the accessible nutrition and added fish oil and kelp. Plus its vet-approved. I'm not going to worry about it having butternut squash because I have confidence that ni are knowledgeable enough to know what they are doing and to have carefully chosen their ingredients. It is certainly a fabulous healthy food to give. Can the ingredients be improved on? I don't know, maybe, but you'd have to really study the subject to be sure. If you have any concerns then ni are very helpful on the phone and I'm sure will answer any queries.
