not enough crude fat in diet??

Post by poppyfri on Thu Jan 11, 2018 1:33 pm

howdy. it's me. again. with more questions. whoopsies.

i did some research and managed to come to a decision on two types of food to mix together to get a pretty good blend of
12.5% crude protein & 11.5% crude fiber.... but it only has 4.5% crude fat out of the recommended 5-8% percent. is there anything decently-priced that i could mix in with this to up the fat & maybe even lower the fiber? or maybe would it just be fine the way it is?

thanks in advance!

I would think its fine, but you can mix in some millet in, and offering treats should be enough.

just add some nuts like walnuts/pecans (no peanuts, though) into their diet... they love them and they have a lot of healthy fat in them.
