I'm on the verge of switching to raw...any advice from you veterans?
How do you make sure they get the 80% meat? Unless I buy deboned chicken breasts(expensive!), I don't know what to give that is a cheap no-bone meat. I usually give a split breasts, leg quarters and a little bit of the breast. But I know that is more than 10% bone.Just a quick thing for now as i have to go back to work. The yahoo group is great. I feed Riley outside all the time. He doesnt mind it, and wont eat inside. If its raining or the weather is really bad then i will shut him in the garage to eat.
I started Riley on chicken and turkey. I never removed any skin or anything and he was fine, but he seems to be able to tollerate pretty much anything. I feed prey model, and think its the best and easiest. Big pieces, no veggies, no supplements (except FBO).
Aw, their first raw meal. They were probably thinking they'd hit the jackpot!Posting an update:
Started both of the dogs on raw this morning and it was a big hit.
Jack had 3oz of bone in breast, and Flip had 9oz of leg quarter.
They both took to it well and were looking for more when done.
So far so good, very happy!
