What Causes Cat Gas?
A cat's gas is a direct sign that he is having difficulty digesting his food. Most people feed their cats a dry commercial kibble food. These are loaded with carbohydrates, fillers, rancid fats, dyes and chemicals that can all upset your cat's digestive tract and cause stinky gas. In the USA, it is the practice to feed cats foods that are largely made of grains. Grains are very hard for your cat to digest resulting in digestive upset and bad gas. To eliminate the gas issues, you need to modify your cat's diet and add elements that will help him digest his cat food more fully. Some important elements to include are digestive enzymes. It is important to feed your cat fresh meats, animal fats and oils. Stay away from grains and fillers; both cause bad gas in cats.
By design, cats are carnivores and hunters. Rodents, birds and small animals would make up the majority of a wild cats diet. fresh meats are full of beneficial digestive enzymes. These enzymes help cats digest their food more completely and without producing a bunch of gas. Meats, cartilage, animal fats, oils and digestive enzymes are what your cat desperately needs. Commercial cat food has been cooked to death. The high heat and pressure destroys delicate nutrients, enzymes and beneficial bacteria. Your cat needs these to thrive. Most cats, when tested, are enzyme deficient. It's no wonder when they eat a heat processed food their whole lives! People are starting to realize that many of their cat's problems are caused by the food they're eating daily. cats are routinely poisoned by aflatoxin and melamine in cat food. There is cat food recall after cat food recall. What are we feeding our cats? It is no wonder our cats have bad gas!

Homemade Cat Food Ingredients
- 8 lbs of raw ground beef Or 16 cups (70/30 is a good choice for most cats, however you can use a more leaner variety.)
- 4 hard boiled eggs including the shells-cooled (The shells provide calcium for your cat. You can crush them by hand, or put the entire hard boiled egg through your food processor to pulverize the shells. Without the shells, your cat will develop a calcium deficiency. If you choose not to use egg shells, then use 7 tablespoons of FidOcal supplement below.
- 8 cups of cooked rolled oats (This is made from 4 cups of uncooked rolled oats. This amount can be adjusted to anywhere between 3 cups to 8 cups. If your cat is active, use the higher amount. If your cat is showing signs of excessive yeast, use 1/2 this amount suggested.)
- 3 Tablespoons of LickOchops
- 12-24 scoops of Dinovite for Cats ( a daily serving scoop is provided with your 90 day box of Dinovite for cats) If your cat has issues such as itching, excessive shedding, dry dry brittle coat, and flaky skin, chronic ear issues, and licking/biting the paws, then you will want to start with the higher amount of supplement.

Special note: Cats have a very acidic stomach (PH of 1) environment that kills the bacteria on fresh meat. This is how they can eat fresh meat and not get sick. It is also why cats can hunt and eat small animals like mice, amd birds without getting sick, and live to do it again the next week. After all they are hunters. It all makes sense.
This Cat Food Recipe is easy and economical to make. Cats fed fresh meat based diets, digest their food well, are less gassy and have smaller, more compact bowel movements.
