Good to know I'm not the only one using the low carb kibble.. Ketona… How did you hear of this product? I read somewhere,, cant remember where,,, that when cooking the meat,, you should use low temperature.. I'm not using a thermometer,, but I do cook the ground turkey over lower heat,, and stop while its stil pink , I usually cook a 3 lb package and that lasts 6 days..... or I use a 1 lb package and that lasts 2 days.. I also alternately add the sardines,, wild caught salmon,, raw egg,, fish oil.. etc.. ( in addition to my supplements)
my holistic vets reply to both low carb kibbles.. ketona and keto kibble:

I received a reply from the owner of Ketona kibble.. that I now feed to Simon .. I know another member uses this as well,, so I wanted her to see this post:
A few caveats:
I won't be going back to my vet with this response. not looking for a trade war.. lol.
I think that holistic vets can be a bit strict in their nutritional guidance
I've made my decision on this and can always change if something better comes along
I won't be afraid to change.. I read that even healthy dogs should eat a varied diet . where you might consider changing up pet foods periodically.

Very interesting. Thanjs for sharibg. Daniel seems to be very confident in all his research and obviously quite knowledgeable.
