Pros

  • Control over the quality of ingredients unlike with commercial food
  • Use of real bones, not commercial bone meal or recreating bones via eggshell powder and trace minerals etc.
  • If you have concerns about salmonella & e.coli in raw meat, cooking takes care of it.

Cons

  • Uncertainty about supplementation amount due to lack of comprehensive information at this time as to what is lost in the cooking process
  • Cooking changes the nutrients in meat; at the very least, there is reduction in the levels of fat, taurine, and water-soluble vitamins and minerals as well as enzyme activity.
