I have looked through over 30 pages of this section and used the search function but cant find the answer so I do appologise if it is there and I missed it.
I am hoping to get a miniature poodle puppy this year (April time) and am seriously considering a RAW diet for him.
I would of course feed the food the breeder recomended for a while until the puppy had settled in etc but was wondering if it is safe to feed RAW to a puppy as I do not want to risk any growth problems or anything during this crucial stage.
I would want to do the best for my dog, is feeding a 100% natural packaged food best to start (such as nature diet or natures menu which is 60% meat with veg and rice etc as the other 40%) and then moving on to RAW when they are older better or is it ok to start out with RAW.
I would want to feed chicken wings and necks, minced chicken/beef/lamb with bone, miced tripe along with chunks of meat too and some organ meat, (I have the Ian Billinghurst book Give your dog a bone and a few other raw food books too)
I want to know if you guys recomend it for a puppy though as I would hate to cause growth problems or deformaties due to me doing it wrong....
