I hope that helps. I know you are not alone in these concerns, by the way, which will make your efforts to find “humanely raised” food animals easier. Major food chains are now offering such meat in response to the demands of some consumers. That said, the cost will be more to feed your pets if you go this route — or choose any specialty product, for that matter.
One final thought: If you feed in any way outside the mainstream, do be extra vigilant when it comes to wellness care, including any regular diagnostics your veterinarian suggests. You want to be sure any problems that come up from a vegetarian or home-prepared diet are caught early and dealt with promptly.
