Raw Food, Supplements and Resources

I am starting to shop for raw food "supplies" - scales, containers, supplements, and maybe small freezer to put in the garage. My counter-depth fridge is barely large enough for keeping booze cold... Next steps would be to work out a solid "menu" for the next month and load up on meat. I am thinking of starting with chicken as it is easy to digest, easy to obtain and it is fairly cheap, but 2 things that I really worry about is providing appropriate vitamins and portion size.

So, supplement-wise, 3 things that were recommended to me are:

http://peterdobias.com/community/products/soul-food/
http://peterdobias.com/community/products/greenmin-2/
http://peterdobias.com/community/pro...-120-capsules/ (Available on Amazon for $10 less)

These 3 things claim to provide everything the dog needs, but I just want to make sure I am not missing anything.

I am also having trouble calculating portion sizes. I've been reading 2-3% of adult weight or 10% of current puppy weight, but these numbers are ridiculously different.



As far as resources, I am knee deep in research at the moment. Currently reading "Raw and Natural Nutrition for Dogs" by Lew Olson.

Can you point me to any other information that could be usable?

Re: Raw Food, Supplements and Resources

Good job mate

more time served better choices better mates

and Hate cannot change results

supplements going in 1 great pure fish oil in the mix krill a great one as well

pre and pro biotics

a great green and great digestive enzyme

all fats , proteins sugars and carb's used and keep the blood sugars stable throughout your days or passions

I use 1 kibble as well the last in the mix to Greatness

and my staple is fresh king and coho salmon earning foods from nature provide so much more

fresh free grazing ducks, chickens, **** birds and turkey meat

elk, moose, buffalo and venison'


beef all of it a distant last

sweet tators, some fresh tuna wild caught


papaya and the better then great Flax seed cold pressed milled only

many vegtables and some fiburs yogurt

I don't drink Warriors make very poor drunks but my lady drinks for both of us it seems. :

I use big zip lock freezer bags date it all keep it fresh and pure.



and to the haters I use Kibble as well

why?

once you use warm waters on it in the mix it acts like a mop and sucks it all up for you

Reds deserve time served

hate will never make you great sharing risking could

BigPappapump loves your choice

Freedom is a lifestyle never a sheep processed bag of little or nothing but poor marketing skills

thrills all come from the heart

any help or support feel free

this is a very light weight vid supporting both sides of the ditch


kibble and raw

Re: Raw Food, Supplements and Resources

My biggest piece of advice is to start making local connections. Often times there are fabulous raw options available that would not be obvious to you unless you speak with local butchers or other raw feeders.

If there is a local raw food co-op nearby, that is your best bet. Again, start speaking with others as many co-ops have no need to advertise. Mine is just a small group of friends.

We got an upright freezer from Craig's List about 7 years ago and it's held up well. I'd go this route again if we ever were to need another.

Re: Raw Food, Supplements and Resources

This is a hobby, quite nutritional so I have to use with care.

Home made supplements, frozen blended chicken with cooked veggies all mixed up and served over a little premium kibble .... order up!

Weird, or what?

Not weird; looks like a great idea! Do you have a recipe you can share? I always like to see what's working for others and to get some new ideas to mix things up once in awhile (pun intended).

Re: Raw Food, Supplements and Resources


I'll get back to you with the ingredients, but basically it is cooked veggies and a cooked, deboned, whole chicken, all blended and placed in the freezer on a baking tray and cut into squares before fully frozen.

Re: Raw Food, Supplements and Resources

We use all raw and mince our own mixes with different offal for change in flavour.

Also have meals of tripe, fish and steak mince every week.

Supplemented with cod liver oil, krill oil, flax oil & coconut oil. We also give a multi vit, and a probiotic.

No kibble is used at all.

Hegy loves it all and is looking good at just under a year old now.

Pig spines with spinal cord still in are awesome.

Best of luck!
