This recipe forms the core diet for my 14 week old male marble red fox. He eats 1-1.8 portions of this food per day in addition to having open access to Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Original dry cat food as that's what my cats eat. I can't change the cats' food as I have no say in that matter rather that's up to my mom, and there is no way to keep him from eating it.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can improve upon this recipe? I am always looking to improve his diet in any way I can.
