Dear Sarah:

Chicken or turkey baby food is very good for ill or geriatric animals that are off their regular diet, but really, the dry kibble that you are feeding now is a far better option of r healthy animals. If your young guys are happy with what they are eating, and there is no pressing health reason for supplemental nutrition, I would not recommend making any changes. There will very liely come a day in all of their lives when baby food will be appropriate, but not now.

With kindest regards,

Bruce Williams, DVM (baby food advocate)
