Food for Redfoots
Posted: 13/06/2008 by Laraine

I have 3 hatchling Redfoots, December 07, just read the care sheet, and was wondering if these would be suitable as a source of animal protein in their diet? as a few pellets a week/fortnight/month?
I use these for 2 of my dogs, no added chemical or anything nasty. They are a small biscuit that I soak for the dogs in warm water, absorbs the water fully and gets nice and soft.

A complete food for all puppies and Toy Breed adults - no caged chicken meat used

Contains: Brown Rice, Chicken, White Rice, Oats, Peas, Chicken Oil, Sunflower Oil,Ocean Fish, Seaweed, Minerals & Vitamins

Typical Analysis/100g: Protein 21.0%, Oil 11.0%, Fibre 2.0%, Ash 7.0%, Vit A 10000 iu/kg, Vit D 1500 iu/kg, Vit E 80 iu/kg, Moisture 9%, Copper 15mg/kg, Sodium 0.48%, Calcium 1.6%, Phosphorus 1.0%, Magnesium 0.1%, EFA 3.33%, Carbohydrates 51%

Hi Laraine

I should think they are OK as reconsituted dog meal can be used as a source of protein.  I don't keep redfoots so am not sure of the frequency.

Re-constituted, good quality cat biscuits seem very popular amongst Red keepers too, and are recommend by the TT, fed once a week.
