I buy a lot of whole chickens, quarter them, and usually eat the breast while my dog gets the rest. It's almost free as whole chickens are usually less than boneless skinless chicken breast. This helps me eat healthier as well - instead of a hot pocket I eat chicken.

Of course with the raw prey model variety is important so you'll have to find ethnic meat shops for your ofal and hard to find meat. Think Chinese or Latin neighborhoods. You'll be amazed at what you find - chicken feet, various livers, pancreas, necks, backs, HEADS!!!!, tounge. It's actually quite fun shopping for and finding stuff that your dog has never tried before.

I usually pretty good at keeping most meat to $.75 to $1.00/lb. Though you'll go outside that range frequently with your Lamb and Salmon etc.

welcome to the forum

i would suggest though before you feed RAW alone do your research first . also if you want to shop at wal mart for food they have a maxximum kind in a blue bag for puppys . you get 25 pounds for 13 bucks it isnt the best food but its the best big chain food IMO . otherwise there is a food thread sticky in health that has everyones opinon on kibble food and what is best . just read what there is and make the best choice based on what you feel will work for your pack , not every dog does the same on every kind of food

texascrewed wrote:until i can post in other threads, I have a question regarding making my own dog food. How essential are bones? I was talking to my uncle and he said he feeds his dogs blended chicken, beef, eggs(with shell) carrots and green beans. He says he doesnt use alot of bone because it clogs the blender easier. He makes a mix twice a week. Like i said as a college student im not going to search around for chicken necks and ox tails but would something similar to what my uncle does be nutritionally acceptable?


Nutritional - yes, though they can't break down the veggies. With the blend you miss out on the act of ripping and tearing that is beneficial to your dog, plus it's making it more difficult. How hard is putting a whole turkey (raw) on the ground and letting your dog get busy with it for 15 minutes, put the rest in the fridge for tomorrow?

P.S you're not gonna have much time after college either lol lol

wait, wait, wait! WELCOME!!!

Hi. Please do more research on raw feeding before you jump into it. :))
There are different types of raw diets and different philosophies.
I couldn't feed whole chickens right now if I wanted to. I do not have a fenced in yard and I will not just plop a whole raw chicken down on the floor in my house and let Ella have a go at it.

Once you get access and can read on nutrition for your dog (to get several view points and a ton of education), I personally would not just feed a raw diet. Balance is what works with a raw diet. What your dog does best on is what works even better.

Again, Welcome to PBF! :thumbsup:
