Feeding your dog a raw diet can be a minefield. There is a lot to consider, such as the right balance between meat and bones. Do you need to add vegetables? Are raw eggs causing salmonella in your dog? Is garlic poison for dogs?
Where to start?
You have all the right intentions but need to figure out where to start.
Here is a list of links that helped us figure stuff out. As well as a list of suppliers we use for meat, treats and supplements we use.
I stumbled across this calculator and it has made our meal prep a lot easier. Best bit it is 100% free.
I highly recommend the dog The forever dog by Rodney Habib and Veterinarian Karen Shaw Becker.
If you don’t want to do your research there are qualified people out there that can support you and set you and your dog up the right path for raw feeding:
Balanced Canine Sacha Paker the business owner is a wealth of knowledge.
The pet food shop (They are opening up a shop in Ballarat soon)
Footscray Market is another great source for a variety of meats that you will be hard pressed to find at your normal supermarket butcher.
My substitute solution, when running low on my own meal preps is BIG DOG PATTIES.
