for raw feeding...ive read up on it but i am wondering if it is ok not to feed full raw but to feed raw a couple times a week maybe? also can i just got buy chicken legs and thighs from the store and give it just like that nothing else required? i know this is a dumb question but i worry a lot. My mom always said giving a dog raw meat would turn them mean but i know now it is an old wives tale. somewhere in my subconcious i think that is still there and nagging at me and id just like reassurance lol.

Raw food will NOT make dogs mean, nor will it make them more likely to kill chickens or other animals. *they don't know that the hunk of meat was once a chicken. *So, here is your reassurance
I think as long as you always feed them in their designated places, and not from the table (or couch in my case, lol) they won't be any worse about begging than usual

I would feed raw completely if I had the freezer space to buy in bulk, but right now I rent and have no place to put a freezer. *I add sardines, high quality canned food, turkey necks, cornish game hens cut in half, raw eggs and other various things to their diet of Canidae ALS.

Good luck with trying new things!

Dogs are omnivores, cats are obligate carnivores.Cat food contains more protein than dog food, which is probably why your dogs like it better. But the foods are formulated for each species, so your dogs should eat primarily dog food.

Monty eats raw meat.. easy, no cooking required.

Our trainer gave us a homemade recipe to make healthy treats for training. I haven't tried it yet but I may tonight. Here it is:

2 cans salmon or tuna
2 eggs
1.5 cups flour
pinch garlic powder
sprinkle of parmesan cheese

mix together, bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes in a greased pyrex lasagna pan, then cut into small pieces. it should be soft but solid.

For home cooking, this is the absolute BEST book I have ever read. I read books on holistic dog stuff all the time, I have A LOT of downtime at work, and have read just about all of them.
This one has a lot of recipies, as well as chapters worth of information discussing things you can add and take away based off of specific needs of your dog. underweight, overweight, kidney trouble, liver trouble, reoccuring UTIs, loose stools, constipation, diabetic, cancer etc. you name it, this book includes nutritional support for it! I like it because it gives the base recipies, but also educates you on what foods can help with each specific need so you can tweak a well-rounded recipe to be literally made for your dog.
Aside from home cooking, it is a very educational book, and I'd definately recommend it to anyone interested in canine nutrition, preventitive holictic solutions, and holictic at home treatment.
Sometimes I'd like to beat my vet over the head with this book. lol.

On another note, my Corgi can not have any kind of dog food because his body treats carbohydrates as toxins and can not deal with them, making them breeding grounds for all kinds of nasty bacteria, as well as putting good bacteria in super production, making even those bad, and also making him more susceptable to many diseases, including cancer. It's pretty scary, actually. Lucky for us, he is kept entirely under control by the simple removal of carbohydrates from his diet. (dogs have no real need for them anyway and use fats the same way we do carbs) so he eats 100% all raw meats, bones, organs, and eggs... with the occasional green veggie or piece of cheese as a treat. He is absolutely THRIVING, let me tell ya!



And after reading "Food Pets Die For: Shocking Facts About pet Food" By Ann N. Martin, (told ya I read a lot. lol) I am very very determined to get ALL of my pets off of any and all commercial pet foods the moment my budget allows.... but I'm kinda nuts to begin with.

Dr. Pitcairn's New Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats by Richard H. Pitcairn D.V.M. and Susan Hubble Pitcairn is also a pretty good book that definately covers home cooking, but I GREATLY prefer the first one I listed, it's easier to formulate a diet for your dogs specific needs, and I agree with it's stand on raw foods more.

hi friends,

Raw Diet is excellent for dogs. Dogs don't necessarily need vegetables, but what you have in mind is fine. Not too much though. Homemade dog food is economical and far more healthier for your dog than commercial brand dog foods. I usually feed uncooked 80% meat, 10% bone, 10% organ. Raw uncooked bones are safe, including raw uncooked chicken bones.
