Can you give raw chicken mince to the cats & dogs?

Can you give raw chicken mince to the cats & dogs?  How about beef mince?  Is that the way they get worms from eating raw meat?

Hi there.  I would not give raw chicken since it can harbor salmonella.  Raw beef would be okay as long as it has been frozen and thawed, or refrigerated properly, before giving it to your cat/dog.    I have not heard of animals getting worms from eating raw meat.  Is there a specific worm you are referring to?  Perhaps I could be of more help with a little more information about that.

Cats are obligate carnivores. This means they must have meat to survive for the essential amino acids and unique proteins. Many nutritionists and vets would agree that a raw meat diet is best for a cat, although many people find the idea overwhelming or complicated.
Kangaroo mince (raw) is actually really good for both dogs and cats and it enjoyed by both.
I personally find that raw meats keep both cats and dogs more healthy and overall in better condition.
-Kangaroo, Chicken mince and beef mince.

Hi, thank you for the post.
I won't feed them with Kangaroo meat.  In case one day they see a Roo, they'll think it's their dinner.....  
Ok, I'll get some beef burger for them.  Hope they like it.

Your comment made me laugh, it is considerate of You. I do not feed my dogs kangaroo meat although someone else in the household does so I thought I would mention it is actually good for them and You can also cook it and it is not noticable as a proper sized kangaroo when they're eating it. I understand your decision not to though as I would not be able to either I do not think.
I hope they like it as well just look out for the fat content in it as well.

You will find lots of good info on raw diet on this website

www.catnutrition.org

Make sure you are feeding them EVERYTHING they need and not just meat. They need bones (ground) organs (heart, liver etc) They need vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes and probiotics. The meal must be balanced: Close to what they would eat in the wild - other animals.

Good Luck.

One day, they (6 months old and a 12 years old cats) finished half a kg of chicken mince.  The 12 years old still meowing and complaint "no enough" food.  No way my cats will eat vegetables.  I still give them dry food but I think the birds and rats eat all them up.

Can you let me know, where I can get the balanced cat food?  And what kind are they?  Give me some examples, please.  Thanks.
