Raw Fed &  Nerdy provides NRC balanced, downloadable recipes (for adult, healthy cats). What makes these different than any other internet recipe?

-Each formulation provides correctly formatted data that integrates seamlessly into the RFN Formulation sheets. This means each formulation can be further customized as needed.

-Each formulation uses NRC metabolic weight method when determining nutrient goals. Using the downloadable tools that come with each formulation (alongside the recipe), you can correctly scale the formulation down to your cat’s weight and energy intake. This allows for the formulations to have the correct nutrient density. In other words, if your cat eats a little or a lot of kcal relative to their size, the nutrient density will scale appropriately.

Determine Your Cat’s Energy Range

RFN uses the equation:

Metabolic Weight x Energy Multiplier = Kcal Goal

This determines the energy and nutrient density of each formulation.

Ranges55-70, 70-100
