Hello guys!  I know it's been a long time since I have been here.  I"ll post in the appropriate place about it.

However, I have a questions:  Given that my Egyptian Maus are prone to urate stones (the same as Dalmation dogs, same problem, same reasons), I am switching to TCFeline original formula, because it does not have organ meat in it.  However, how do I balance the meal?  The urate stones come from too many purines in the meats, and that's why I'm avoiding organ meat, because it's heavy in urates.

But that also means I"m not feeding a balanced meal.  I don't know what the liver provides, or how to substitute.

Any ideas?

Can you email the company? I do know that too much liver causes vitamin A toxicity.

You could try BalanceIT instead, it is intended for cooked homemade but you have lots of options to create your own recipe.
