Alright, but that's not really reasonable for most of us. Would be nice, but not gonna happen. Really anything except setting up a breeding colony of mice and penning your cat and a mouse in together at dinnertime is a compromise, but there are still compromises that work in the direction of being more natural and healthy. It doesn't have to be all or nothing.
I agree it is not an all or nothing but in most areas of the US and Canada you can get most info ( how grown , what feed , where grown ).. Truely it was easier for me to find out where and how my meat is grown and slaughtered than for me to go get the frozen raw ... half of my meat is delivered to my door by the rancher himself , I do live in a sub rural area .. I for one will not be getting a aviary or a mouse colony anytime soon
back to the topic ... Studies with double blinds are next to impossible to do with cat food .... and there arent many companys doing anything more than the std feed trials, my guess is $$$$ to do said study and third parties to conduct them and fourth to certify that the third party did as told would be hard to get ... ti date only one raw company has EVEN ATTEMPTED the Affco( feed studies in the US) trials and the results of said trial are unknown
