Question Urban Carnivore raw food

While at the store where I buy Beamers food from, I noticed they now carry Urban Carnivore frozen raw food. Has anyone tried this brand? They use the words 'Finely ground whole carcass' . Does this mean they shove an entire animal in a grinding machine and make the patties or what?? Interesting...


Anyone?

Guess who? Yup, I buy it on occasion. I've tried Bison, Elk and Lamb patties. They are meat only, no mix of vegetables. They also sell vegetable patties that you can mix in with the meat. My guys loved all the meat. Go for the Bison. Beamer will love it.

I saw them there about a month ago. But I buy them at the store in Whitby where I get my other stuff. They just happen to sell UC as well on occassion.

Well if you are going to keep NV as your main meal and then say once or twice a week feed the UC, then I wouldn't worry about the veggies or supplements. If you are going to feed more then I would add in the veggies and supplements. What supplements are you feeding? I use Feed-Sentials.

Daniel, I do not add any suppliments besides Salmon oil to Beamers NV food.

Do you think I should be adding?? Is this Feed-Sentials avalaible at Global?

So, do you think I should add it though? Don't the pre made raw have many of these suppliments allready in them?

You could also try Nupro which Global sells.

Here's a link to Nupro http://www.nuprosupplements.com/

I use Feed-Sentials and Sh-Emp Oil http://www.stalworthkennels.com/sh-emp.htm
