Small market for specialty food, so they can.
The main thing with making cat food is getting enough Taurine into it. It's
fairly easy to supply- available at the health food store and seems to be
quite palatable. When our poor kitten was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, the
vet recommended additional taurine in case he lived long enough to benefit
from it. And if you're feeding your cats chicken, beef and liver instead of
a vegetarian diet, chances of taurine deficiency are slim.
Your vet may have recipes available, as ours does. I asked our vet why he
didn't suggest that first, he said that most people just want to open a can.
Even if he doesn't have recipes available, there are dozens on line.
And remember, when I was a little girl, commercial pet food was just
becoming widely available. Before that, animals ate what their people ate,
for the most part.

Not separate feeding this time. Both Seamus & Slugger will eat z/d canned
and dry. I see they now also have hypoallergenic treats. No corn, dairy,
or fish are the main things I need to look for. Locally z/d is $6 a
pound. I did find a place on line that, with a discount, I can get it down
to $5.53. I also found mention on message boards of the abilty to get
coupons from Hills.
Making their food? That's a thought; I could ask the doctor. I don't know
how easy or economical that might be to ensure they get all the nutrients
I had them on Felidae Platinum for awhile and, though it seemed to reduce
his fits a bit, it wasn't good enough. It has fish & egg. I'm going to
have to keep an eye on Seamus while they're on z/d though. I don't think
it provides any benefit against FUS.
I just don't understand why ANY cat food has to cost that much.
