  5. Cat Doesn't Feel Full After Eating

    Raw Feeding
    In 2015, my cat was diagnosed with megacolon. He was raised on awful grocery store cat food, before I knew anything about good nutrition for cats and dogs, so it didn't surprise me that I had inevitably messed up my cat. I started work at a higher end pet food store and got him on a grain free...

  8. Feeding half raw half kibble?

    Raw Feeding
    So a few people I know feed their dog half kibble half raw, with the raw being a brand such as Northwest Naturals, Primal, Instinct, etc. Chicken backs or necks are the only pieces available by these companies because they're the only raw marketed by those companies. Needless to say, it's pretty...

  12. New to Raw-Bone Question-Confused

    Raw Feeding
    Good Morning, I recently started feeding my six month old lab mix puppy a raw diet. I'm trying to be diligent about getting my portions right, but I'm a bit confused about the bone thing. I read that bone should make up 10-15% of her diet. My question is whether that means 10-15% actual bone...
  13. New to Raw-Bone Question-Confused

    Raw Feeding
    I just started feeding my six month old puppy a raw diet, and I'm unsure as to whether or not I'm giving her enough bone. My understanding is that the diet should contain 10-15% bone, but is that 10-15% actual bone or 10-15% meaty bones like chicken/turkey necks, chicken backs, and other...

    Raw Feeding
    I have a friend who has two dogs, and we often laugh over how her husband spoils them. The conversation always ends up with what hubby feeds them, and how he cooks for them, and I know that my friend has a personality where she only listens and takes advice so much. So, I try to give her...
  18. Veal and beef brisket.

    Raw Feeding
    I just got an order in of veal brisket, and fed it to Hunter last night. The bone is fantastic - soft and excellent for chewing. Hunter had no issues eating it. There is a good amount of fat for dogs that have issues keeping weight on, but not a lot of meat so when feeding it you'll need to add...
