|I'm very new to the raw feeding community. Not to my dog's dismay, fortunately. But to mine, I fear for her safety! She's a relatively small/medium breed. She has a huge mouth though, and her history I think keeps her thinking she'll never eat again. She scarfs down food as it it's going to be taken. So, since she's so small, her ideal "meal" (twice a day) is only 3 ozs! So my question is on the raw prey diet thing...it says ideal food should be bigger than or as large as the dog's head. I can see how this would help her from scarfing it down whole. However, in doing that I can't make it weight 3 oz. Maybe I'm thinking too hard about this, but how should this be addressed? A 3 oz slab of chicken I don't even think gets chewed. Dinner when it was kibble was virtually ignored, and then begrudgingly eaten in about 6 minutes. Now her poor dinner is about 4 seconds long!
