What is Franken Prey?
Franken Prey mimics a diet closest to what nature provides for Carnivores without the meal being presented as whole prey yet completely balanced as 80.10.1o. If you are a little squeamish at the sight of seeing a duck head or whole intact birds or brains in your pets bowl, then Franken Prey is ideal.
Our Franken Prey diets are strictly human grade premium proteins with no additions added such as vegetables or oils etc. Some of our FPD are minced or diced or a combination. We have a broad range of form as some pets can be fussy. Some pets prefer minced and others prefer diced only.
You can feed the FPD as Completely Balanced . You can add extras such as vegetables , fruit or even yoghurt and eggs if you are an experienced raw feeder or to further cater for your pets requirements.
We also recommend you change the diversity of FPD that are fed in order to provide your pet an overall wellness of beneficial goodness to their health.
You can add up to 25% vegetables as most dogs do well however but we suggest you keep a smaller % ratio.
Can I add FPD to kibble?
Whilst many pet owners do so and it is a controversial topic there should be no issues at maintaining the perfect ratio of kibble to no more then 20% of the diet and raw to 80% of diet.
Just remember dogs and cats were eating raw food before man created kibble. Many pet owners are making the change in feeding quality human grade raw food with no preservatives or gluten as they understand the importance of longevity of their pets.
Can I cook Franken Prey Diets?
Yes, you can however what will be the purpose of this? Cooking food results in the loss of valuable nutrients that your pet requires. Understandably your pet may be extremely fussy and as a pet owner you may be trying frantically to make sure that your pet transitions to a raw diet. We can suggest that if your pet is fussy then you can partially cook 10% of the meal, then once cool, mix through well and feed. After a few days, you can lower the cooked % to 5% then after one week you should be able to feed FPD completely raw.
Hint - You can always add bone broth and mix through meal to entice your pet to eat a completely raw diet.
Lets take a look at pets energies-
Pets with hot energies can be warm/hot to the touch. They will always be seeking cool places such as a cold floor to lay on or shade. They may exhibit red eyes, red skin, and pant at inappropriate times (not while exercising or excessive heat).
By TCM theory, feeding your pet foods that will help your pet reach a neutral state will help create balance. If your pet has a cold energy, you will want to feed foods that are warming or hot. If your pet has a hot energy, you will want to stick with cooling foods. Pets can eat foods that are considered neutral as they won't affect balance.
Cooling foods aid in clearing heat and toxins from the body, and nourishing the internals. Incorporating cooling foods into your pet’s diet will help to resolve the underlying disharmony that is causing the reaction.
Warming or hot foods
Warming foods assist in raising energy of the body and the organs as they improve circulation. Use warming foods when there is internal cold, such as pain.
These foods are neither warming nor cooling, but help to maintain your pet’s overall wellbeing. They can be extremely beneficial when the digestive system is weak and needs strengthening, as they are often very easy to assimilate. Food therapy, when combined with other approaches, can be a very effective way to treat allergies in out pets.
