Is it sensible to add meat to my pet’s meal?
Calcium and phosphorus are two related nutrients. These two nutrients need to be in the food in the right ratio. This is extremely important for your pet to develop and maintain bones. An excess of one of these two minerals could lead to bone problems. The composition of Yarrah’s food is such that it contains the correct ratio of calcium to phosphorus. Meat contains far more phosphorus than calcium. If you add meat to your dog or cat’s food, then this will disrupt the ratio of calcium to phosphorus. If you’re still keen to add some meat to the dry food, then use Yarrah wet food out of a tin or alu dish. This already contains the right ratio of calcium to phosphorus, you see.
