I have taken in a foster who has been severely abused and starved. He is very, very malnourished and extremely skinny. He has been with the vet for three weeks, so I can't imagine what he looked like at first.

Anyway, both of my dogs are raw fed and I want to do the same for him. How do I do this with him? Is just chicken ok for awhile, knowing it won't provide all of the nutritional requirements? Should I cut it up at first? Any and all advice is sincerely appreciated!
