Ratios 80% meat – legs, hearts, wings, gizzards, etc. 10% organ – liver, kidney, etc. 10% bone – chicken bone, turkey bone, any raw bone.
Feeding When you first start, feed each meat week by week. Example: Week 1 – chicken only. Week 2 – turkey only. Week 3 – beef only. You can feed as many times as you want per day, but generally.. Puppies: 3-4 times per day Adults: 1-2 times per day Smaller breeds should be fed more often than larger breeds.
Dangers Raw feeding has certain dangers – but so does kibble. Many dogs choke to death each year on random things – kibble, tennis balls, dog treats. The chance that a dog will choke on a raw bone is very small. Bacteria isn’t a problem for dogs. They have the enzymes to handle it – besides, do you think they would cook their food in the wild? No. They eat it raw.
