What is Raw Meow Mix Low?
Raw Meow Mix Low is a meal completer designed specifically for cats requiring a low phosphorus, low sodium diet and is NOT suitable for healthy adult cats or kittens.
Raw Meow provides the tools to help you feed a complete, balanced raw diet to your cats. Based on the prey model, Raw Meow Mix Low contains chicken liver as the organ requirement and ground eggshell as the source of calcium. Egg yolks provide choline and vitamin E, Green lipped mussel provides the omega 3.
Raw Meow Low Mix is a low protein, low phosphorus, low sodium option. Raw Meow Mix Low also contains pumpkin for beta carotene, spinach and wheatgrass for chlorophyll, cranberries and vitamin E as an added antioxidant, psyllium husk to boost dietary fibre and assist normal bowel movements and curcumin for its anti-inflammatory properties
Raw Meow Mix Low balances boneless meat. It will make plain muscle meat a complete meal, this means you MUST not add any organ or source of calcium (ie: bone). We recommend using a low phosphorus muscle meat like chicken thigh and ensure the skin is left on.
Raw Meow Mix Low is not a "vitamin” supplement and must NOT be added to foods that are already balanced and complete.
When feeding a cat with low phosphorus requirements, the protein you use is important, as is the fat level of the meals you feed
Low Mix is a lower phosphorus meal completer, but to get the best out of this you should add it to a lower phosphorus, higher fat meat. Healthy cats require about 10% fat in their diet (30% DMB) and cats with kidney issues can go to even twice that.
Our recommendation is to make the base of your meals with Low Mix using chicken thigh with skin on. Chicken thigh is the lowest phosphorus protein. It is advisable to feed using this protein to keep the levels as low as possible. If your cat is not a fan of chicken, you could try a small amount of another protein into the mix to assist with taste.
Roo is one of the highest in phosphorus as well as the lowest in fat so it is a protein we recommend you do not use with Low Mix
RMM Low Mix plus chicken thigh (which is the lowest phosphorus muscle meat) will give you a pho level of approx. 0.62% DMB
Joining a kidney disease FB group for more info is highly recommended and the admin in https://www.facebook.com/groups/felinecrf are highly experienced and raw friendly and familiar with Raw Meow as well.
How to Feed using Raw Meow Mix Low
Adding Raw Meow Mix Low to individual Raw Meals
Raw Meow Mix can be added at time of serving individual meals. Mix 1 scoop (provided 3gm) with approx 1-2 tablespoons water (to desired consistency)
and add to 45gm of raw muscle meat. Makes 60gm of food. Mix well and serve.
Adding Raw Meow Low Mix to individual Cooked Meat Meals
Raw Meow Low Mix was created to add to raw meat, but can also be added to cooked meats. Measure the weight of the RAW food (before cooking) and remember to retain any juices from the cooking process, add this to the meal as it is full of nutrients.
Do not mix in the Raw Meow Low Mix until the cooked meat has thoroughly cooled.
Making a larger batch to portion and freeze
Mix 22 scoops (67gm) of Raw Meow Mix powder with enough water to make a paste, then add water to desired consistency. Add to 1kg raw muscle meat. Mix well. Portion and freeze. Always thaw frozen portions in the fridge. Additional water can be added after defrosting.
One 300gm bag will make approx. 6kg of food
This will depend on your cat’s preference for a wetter or “drier” meal
The average adult cat will eat about 120gm a day – please note that how much food a cat needs daily is dependent on age, size, activity level, and health
Raw Meow Mix with chicken thighs has a dry matter phosphorus level of 0.62%
