Suggested Use: Our recipes list the amount of supplement required for that recipe. You may increase or decrease the amount of food you prepare by proportionally increasing or decreasing all ingredients in the recipe. Your cat’s weight determines how much he or she eats, and our recipes have the correct proportions to meet the nutritional requirements for a cat of any weight. It is best to mix the supplement into prepared warm food, but the supplement can also be added during the cooking process.
Feed your cat freshly prepared food for superior health!
Use ingredients you trust without using animal products.
While cats are carnivores, their nutritional needs can be met by a properly supplemented plant-based diet. The Vegecat™ supplement provides the nutrients cats require from non-animal sources, including: taurine, vitamin D2, vitamin A, the essential fatty acid arachidonate, and a building block of L-carnitine (methionine). Vegecat™ recipes are carefully formulated to provide lysine (the other building block of L-carnitine), ample protein, essential fatty acids in the correct ratio, and all else necessary for a healthy cat. We do not recommend adjusting recipes without consulting an animal nutritionist.
All recipes include food yeast. We highly recommend using our VegeYeast, a brewer’s yeast modified for acidity that is especially good for your cat’s urinary health. Maintaining an acidic urine pH is important. The ideal urine pH for a cat is 6.0 to 6.5. Urine pH can be tested at home or at a veterinarian’s office. Cats with preexisting urinary issues, or those who cannot maintain the proper urine pH on the Vegecat™ diet, are better served by the Vegecat phi™ supplement. Wet food is best for the urinary health of cats. If you primarily feed dry kibble, it is best to add moisture to the diet. Pureed vegetables add moisture and additional vitamins and minerals. Veggies should be no more than 10% of the diet to ensure the protein requirement is met. Please see the recipe instructions for more information.
The Vegecat™ recipe brochure accompanies the Vegecat™ supplement, and recipes are available online at www.CompassionCircle.com/Vegecat. Please read the introductory portion of the recipe brochure thoroughly before preparing meals.
You will also find wonderful recipes in Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats (4th edition). Because the volume of the Vegecat™ supplement changed since the book’s first printing, serving size modifications may be necessary. See the following webpage for adjusted amounts, or simply add the supplement daily: www.compassioncircle.com/dr-pitcairns-guide
Suggested Adjuncts: For optimal health, add lactose-free Prozyme® Plus to every meal. A 10.5 ounce bottle will last one cat for 32 months. Prozyme® Plus is a digestive enzyme product that aids digestion and increases nutrient absorption up to 71%. The digestive enzyme amalyse is particularly important for cats on a plant-based diet. For urinary health, add Cranimals® Urinary Tract Supplement – an organic cranberry powder that increases urine acidity and provides antioxidants. Both products are available through Compassion Circle.
