Raw Diet Notes

General

·        Keep on raw diet for the life of your dog

·        If your puppy doesn’t eat, remove the food after 15 minutes and then give the food at next meal. 

·        Always feed in the crate and or x-pen – with no kids hovering

·        Clean-up: straight white vinegar in a spray bottle and paper towel.

·        Don’t keep thawed raw meat in refrigerator for more than 2 days

 

 

Supplements

     . please give 1 squirt of sardine oil
     . 

No Grains

·        Examples: rice, wheat, corn, oats, bread

 

When to Increase Food

·        Slowly increase amount of food from 6 months to adult depending on their weight gain.
·        Increase/decrease amount of food depending on dog’s appetite and weight.

 

 

When and How to Introduce a New Protein

·        Introduce a new protein every other week and feed for at least 10 days before switching to a new protein. (e.g., hamburger, chicken legs ( once a week),  or thighs, red meat, pork, turkey, venison, duck, fish).
 
 

·        Try it for 10-12 days

·        Freeze protein for at least 10 days (ideally for 2 weeks) before feeding.

·        Partially thaw and serve.

Suggested Supermarket Meats

Note: Can buy anywhere – look for sales.

·        Chicken leg, leg quarter, breast, neck/leg, thigh, back; whole chickens

·        Turkey breast, leg, neck/breast, ground

·        Ground beef, beef mixed with sardines

·        Ground pork

Try to get some canned salmon or sardines and an egg into their diet once or 2x  a week.  Mix it into what ever
meat you are feeding that day. I prefer feeding my dogs whole sardines frozen which I buy through New England Raw Feeders.  You can join this group on Facebook.  Great meats and great prices!

. Start supplement of sardine oil at age 14 weeks of age.  Sardine oil is better than salmon oil.   Omega 3 is important.
  Remember  you  can always add new meats to their diets and change the menu
as you and your puppy/dog like.  Rule of thumb to feed puppies is 3-4%  of their adult body weight when full grown.
Meaning:  If female puppy will weigh 60-65lbs as an adult then she should get  X 3% to 4% of their body weight of meat a day. Make sure to divide the total into 2 meals a day!    Each puppy and dog will need more or less meat as they grow.  Always check their weight by feeling for their rib cage.  

BEST DOG FOOD REVIEWS AND WHY NOT TO FEED CERTAIN DRY FOODS
 
 http://www.reviews.com/dog-food/
 
 
































 

(Try to get some fresh fish into their diet as well....maybe on a weekend they can get a special fish that day)
.

 






























  Remember  you  can always add new meats to their diets.  Try adding a whole fish from the fish market.   What ever is on sale!  Do not feed North Pacific Salmon!  Any other salmon is ok.
Please add ox tail, beef kidney, and animal livers to their diets.  Any meats you see that are different, venison, goat, rabbit and other animals are all good for them.     This is just a sample menu.  Try to remember to feed the whole prey animal diet during the week.
Another item I love is Vita Essentials.  This product has trip, kelp, organs, meat and other essential items needed for your puppy or dog.  I sprinkle this frozen little meatballs over their food once a day.  You can find this product at Especially for Pets.
