    Hi I found your site while searching on info on feeding raw salmon to cats.

    I have two kitties.
    7 year old Artemus Gordon who either has IBD or Colitis , vets couldn’t agree.
    And Malachi 2 1/2 year old who has major allgery and immune issues. And he has Hyperesthesia.

    I started them on a raw food diet due to a natural vets urging. They have been on it for about 3 years or almost.
    Arte is doing wonderful . Malachi still has his issues but he takes Moducare to help with the immune stuff and Anaflora flower essence remedies made esp for him for his hyperesthesia.
    Anyway they are both doing well. I know a lot better than they would be if they were taking a bunch of drugs from a reg vet.

    Anyway I wanted to find out about feeding my guys raw salmon.

    I order their food and there was a mix up in their food this order and I got 10 1 lb salmons instead of my pheasant.
    I have never really looked a whole lot into feeding them salmon as its a little scary cause of the poisoning thing even though its only suppose to be dogs and then theres the fact that it can deplete a B vit if eaten to often not to mention I have read about it upseting the balance of the urinary track and causing stones .
    So I have never really considered it and have mostly stayed away from it but now since it has been presented to me like it has I am trying to find out good solid info on feeding it to my guys so I can decide if I want to let them try it or not.

    I would appreciate anything at all you all can tell me on this.
    Would appreciate any sites to go to etc.
    Thanks so very much
    Ps I don’t mind being emailed privately either

    If you are still working with the holistic vet then that s/he may be your best source of information about feeding a natural diet.

    I also love Michelle Bernard’s excellent book on natural cat rearing. It is well researched and will give you many practical tips. You can find an excerpt in my natural pet library. Her direct URL is [url]http://www.raisingcatsnaturally.com/[/url].

    In general raw salmon is fine depending on the source. As [b]moderation and variety[/b] are very important factors when feeding a fresh food diet, I would just integrate the salmon into the diet rather than relying on it exclusively.

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
