Bones are the most natural source of minerals to deliver nutrients that help maintain healthy bones
Next to meat, bones are an important component of the natural diet of cats. Bones supply essential minerals and provide an excellent source of calcium. Bone is the most natural source to deliver nutrients that help support the development and maintanance of healthy bones such as calcium, phosphorus etc. and also contain nutrient-rich collagen, cartilage and a broad range of trace minerals and amino acids.
To be used properly in the body, calcium must be provided in a specific ratio to phosphorus. Bones are the natural way for predators to achieve this balance.
If you are not feeding bones with the meat, the Tatzenladen whole bone powder is a great alternative and supplies essential minerals (like calcium, phosphorus etc.) to your cat. Remember, a cat fed a meat-only diet must satisfy its calcium requirement by stealing from its own bones.
