Availability of TCfeline-with dry liver: I
didn't think that COVID-19 would affect the TCfeline premix, but in the
end it did. TCfeline-with dry liver was discontinued early February 2021
due to unavailability of the dry liver. USDA inspectors are not available to certify the re-packing of the material at the manufacturer into drums sizes suitable for smaller businesses.
Please know that this is not a
disaster. In some way I am glad, because since inception of this
variety, which was added for customer convenience, it has been an
ongoing challenge to secure a reliable source of dry liver. Addition of
liver to raw cat food is essential as a source of Vitamin A, D, B
Vitamins, and trace minerals like copper and zinc. Adding liver to raw
cat food in the form of dry liver already blended into the premix was a
bit of a lazy way of doing that and certainly not better. It turned out
that the drying process almost eliminated the natural vitamin A and D
content in the liver through oxidation, which required me to replace the
lost vitamins with synthetic vitamins. I was also never able to
formulate the TCfeline-with dry liver premix in a way to add the full
equivalent of fresh liver as dry liver. That would have completely
overpowered the taste of the premix and made it un-affordable. I realize
that TCfeline-with dry liver was a favourite with many of you and I am
sorry to force a change in your life. Going back to adding fresh liver
is, indisputably, the better choice, however, and I am sharing
recommendation on how to make this as convenient as possible HERE.
your cat is no longer a kitten (12 months or older) and not a breeding female (a
purebred cat used for breeding or a rescued pregnant cat) and addition of fresh
liver ends up a big problem for you or your cat, my premix TCfeline "Special
Formula" does not require addition of fresh liver and is very well liked
