You can decide to feed a diet higher in naturally occurring taurine to your pet by choosing meals made of protein that has a higher taurine content.

Here’s the list of protein and their taurine content. Those numbers refer to laboratory analysis of Big Country Raw’s Pure Formulas, including both meat and organ meat.

The daily taurine minimum requirement for kittens and adult cats is 0.08g per 1000kcal of food. In Bold is how recipes made out of those protein can compare to this requirement. For example, Pure Lamb is at 5.8x the requirement, and Pure Duck at 1.1x the requirement. Big Country Raw only suggest the addition of Thrive Taurine to cats that strictly eat Pure Rabbit and Pure Duck recipes. Rabbit and Duck blend (like Fare Game Rabbit and Pork) are fine and usually around 3x to 4x the requirement. Eating once a week Pure Turkey (8x) or Turkey blend (like Country Blend or Turkey, Salmon Lamb blend) in rotation with lower taurine content recipes is also a good way to balance over time.

Turkey – 0.12g/100g – 8.1x

Lamb – 0.10g/100g – 5.8x

Kangaroo – 0.03g/100g – 4.7x

Chicken – 0.05g/100g – 3.9x

Salmon – 0.04g/100g – 3.9x

Pork – 0.06g/100g – 3.3 x

Beef – 0.04g/100g – 2.7x

Rabbit – 0.03g/100g – 2.5 x
