All dogs should be fed, by volume of the total amount fed each meal, 25-50% meat The easiest way to start this program is to use ground meats. Take the portion to be fed, mix with water, and cook on the stove top or in the microwave until the meat is cooked medium (pink) to medium-well. Some animals...

For 9 week old pups, I do bone-in chicken breasts and leg quarter (often scoring the flesh so it's easier to rip and eat), heart, organs in very small amounts, bonelss beef-lamb-goat-pork. turkey necks. Poultry feet are also good. I also typically make a meat-veggie grind for my pups since it's eas...

Can I feed puppies on raw food? You most certainly can. And the good news is that unlike the commercial dog foods who recommend a confusing range of foods for different age groups, raw food fed dogs are fed the same regardless of age. Of course, you won't want to feed that little puppy huge marrow b...

People certainly raise puppies on raw, but a pup may not be the ideal test dog for your first go at a raw diet. With an adult dog you have a great margin for temporary error, so it might be a good idea to get a bunch of research and real life experience under your belt before trying with a puppy. T...

Why don't you write the menu, and we'll critique it. (You'll learn better by going through the process, rather than having it handed to you.) For each day explain what you are feeding (product type, amount, supplements) and why. LMW ok il give it a go, morning- 5 chicken wings lunch- a few chicken ...
