Homemade Meals or Store Bought Food for my furkid?
Have you been faced by such a dilemma before? Well I know many of my friends certainly had.
Who can deny the wonders of store bought food, it’s convenience, as easy as popping by a supermarket to grab some pet food or even at a click of a button on popular grocery e-commerce sites like RedMart.
But is it really all that nutritious for your furkid and is it even cheaper?
Well, this article will help to shed some light on some of the pros and cons of homemade meals for your furkid.
Benefits of Homemade Meals
Firstly, many argue that homemade meals are actually better for pets with allergies or pets that require specific dietary requirements.
With homemade meals, we can pick just the right veggies for your pet’s particular needs, such as those with higher antioxidant or medicinal properties. To add on, we can also decide which meat sources to feed our pet, which is especially important if you have a cat or dog with an allergy to certain types of protein.
Secondly, it can actually be more nutritious as well as better for our furkids’ overall wellbeing. Proven benefits include a more luscious coat of fur, a longer life span, lesser fleas attracted to your furkid, as well as shinier coats, fewer skin problems, more energy and also easier to maintain a healthy weight. Sounds convincing doesn’t it?
Thirdly, we know exactly what goes into our pet’s food. This is one of the main reasons why many chose to switch their pet food to a homemade diet. You can have complete control over what goes into your furkid’s stomach plus, ensure that you’re feeding high quality, human-grade protein, not bits and pieces of unwanted meat. (Think eyeballs, bones!)
Disadvantages of Homemade Meals
Most pet owners are turned off by how time-consuming making each meal will be. Shopping for the ingredients to even cooking the food – that must take at least an hour of our precious time!
Many are also concerned with the possibility that it could be even pricier than buying store bought food. I mean, if you compare buying all the scattered ingredients with just a one stop store bought food, making homemade meals ourselves does seem to be at a major disadvantage.
Moreover, making homemade meals ourselves for our furkids can also be dangerous if not done right. A prevalent problem that pets that are fed homemade meals is that it has potential to do a great deal of damage to your furkids’ health if the meals are not balanced.

Keen on switching your furkid’s food up to a homemade one? Well, my advice to you is to do it slowly, one step at a time. Commercial pet food can be quite toxic so switching your furkid’s diet might cause digestive problems.
