They both loved the fish. They may have loved it regardless since this is the first they have gotten of a whole fish. I usually give sardines.

Ah didn't think of that, thanks. Does it matter much that these were fresh from a fishing trip and not from the grocery store?

Chicken leg quarters works well to start with for bony pieces, takes my bigger dog longer to eat vs. smaller pieces.

Thanks! Makes total sense. I got a great deal on frozen while tilapia today. If I feed fish once a week or so on average no need to supplement omegas right?

Joey has been introduced to most proteins (chicken, turkey, pork, fish, beef)and still doing fine, so after a few more days of beef and then introducing organs I would like to start tranisitioning to the 80/10/5/5 ratio. I really like schedules and would like to have one I can use with a variety of meats trying to keep 50% red meat. This is what I have come up with so far, any suggestions/concerns?


Joey (168 oz) 57-60 lb

Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday
(add egg 1-2 x week)
AM: 1 leg quarter (16 oz)
PM: 8 oz red boneless meat

Monday and Friday
AM: 4 oz liver plus 8 oz ground or boneless meat
PM: 12 oz red boneless meat

Wed and Saturday
AM: 4 oz other organ plus 8 oz red boneless meat
PM: 12 oz fish or other

Raw Food Diet > Vacation

In three weeks I will be gone for ten days and a friend will be dogsitting. I am pretty new to the raw diet for both my boys (3 weeks in). I am wondering what all of you experienced raw feeders do when you go on vacation? I was thinking of weighing everything out and putting it in ziploc bags with the days for a label. Any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks! They have a good deal on pork shoulder ($1.19/lb) so I will try that this week slowly. My large dog needs 18 oz day for 2 % so I should probably stock up on that. I think a lot of their skin issues comes from outside so I am hoping it will get better this winter.

Can I ask where most people get their organ meat excluding liver. I have been able to find plenty of liver but not much else. I was going to hit up some ethnic food markets this weekend. Thanks!

Raw Food Diet > New discussion on raw (premade) diet and high alt

Joey

I do not know about raw premade diet an association with high alt disease because I am new to this diet, but I was curious does your dog have any other symptoms? Were her other liver function tests normal (AST, ALKP, GGT)? I know that red meat is high in ammonia and not reommended in dog's with severe liver disease and seizures, and I have also seen articles regarding low purine diets in liver disease. I assume your Vet is doing more tests/labwork? I hope you find out the root of the problem! I would not want to change anything until more tests were run.

It has been a week now since my dogs have transitioned to raw food and so far so good. Thanks to this forum's tips I switched my bully to leg quarters from drumsticks, which is slowing him down and making me feel better about his chewing.

For the past few days I have been feeding them their appropriate weight of leg quarters and two days ago I introduced chicken liver and they tolerated it well.

When I took them on a walk yesterday I noticed their stools looked pretty much the same (soft but formed/what I would consider normal amount for both sizes). Does this mean I should continue on with he chicken quarters for awhile or go ahead and cut down to 10% bone? I was also wondering what would be the best protein to feed next?

The main reason for me switching is their constant scratching/allergies. Will 2 weeks be enough time to see if this diet will help improve this? I will likely stick with raw either way because they love it so much, but want to figure out the cause of their allergies for sure.

Thanks!
