What is Whole Prey Feeding?

Have you ever wondered about the concept of feeding “whole prey” to your pets, but aren’t quite sure what it entails or how to go about it? In this article, we’ll delve into what exactly this method of raw feeding entails and offer some guidance on incorporating it into your pet’s diet.

As the term suggests, “whole prey” involves providing your pets with entire animals that they would naturally hunt and consume in the wild. This can include a variety of prey such as chicks, rats, mice, and more.

The Advantages of Whole Prey Feeding

Feeding whole prey offers numerous benefits, primarily because it closely mimics the natural diet of cats and dogs. In a species appropriate raw food diet, which aims to replicate the nutritional composition of prey animals, feeding whole prey directly represents the ideal diet. Whole prey contains all the essential components that wild cats and dogs would consume, including organs, blood, intestines, glands, fur, and feathers.

Additionally, feeding whole prey provides mental stimulation for your pet, as they engage in natural hunting behaviors and experience a variety of textures and tastes. The inclusion of fur and feathers also adds insoluble fiber to their diet, which may be lacking in other feeding approaches.

Practical Considerations for Whole Prey Feeding

When selecting prey for your pet, it’s crucial to choose options that are appropriately sized for their consumption. For instance, smaller prey like mice are suitable for cats, whereas larger animals such as quails may be more appropriate for dogs. If necessary, cutting larger prey into manageable portions is recommended to ensure ease of feeding.
