    It's going to be a long process and I'm sure it's going to take me a while to get the amounts right - but I don't mind

    Do you feed much fruit? I've been giving them a few pieces of banana with their breakfast when I have it on my breakfast and they seem to love it.
    I put in 2 kiwis and 2 apples in their vegie mix (will last them about 7-8 days).

    Just remember...when I say meat/mince...it is human grade....NO pet grade mince since it contains enormous amounts of preservatives.

    Does the pet mince you get from the butchers have preserv's in it? Like minced chicken carceses?

    nope

    It has a very short shelf life from the time it is put out

    Oh good! We thought that about the shelf life! OH and I put portions of it into 101 ziplock bags and stuffed them all into our freezer! We just defrost one or two bags each night for Poppy. She LOVES it!

    Always check the mince before you leave the store! Sometimes they will just keep giving out the old stuff to get rid of it. I've had to get them to give me fresh mince not rank going off stuff a few times now.

    Mind you that only happens when I can't get to my usual butcher... Lenard's are a bit hit and miss but better than most.

    Will have to remember that! Thanks! The big bag I got a few weeks ago smelt fine when I portioned it out. Had a really meaty smell! I'm guessing if its off it will smell off?

    Yup, smells worse than normal meat too, and very quickly. Also have a look at the colour if you don't want to open the bag right there, if it's pinkish red then you should be fine, if it's dark red or brown then there may be an issue

    Right, so if I go to the butchers today, what should I get? Or should I just get the stuff we eat from the supermarket? I definately won't be getting the pet mince that they have in the supermarket - it always looks nasty!

    I would say it is!

    Have a look at the use by date...if it is any more than 4-5 days....preservative alert
