Hey there, just joined the site.

I started feeding a prey-model diet about 8 months ago and have since switched to pre-made ground meals, no veggie content.

I work at a Tail Blazers pet healthfood store, maybe some of you are familiar with it?

I have two dogs and two kittens: Kye is a year-old spayed border collie/hound type mix; Rio is a year-old spayed border collie/husky mix; Deia (Deeya) is a medium-haired calico and her sister Rya is a short-haired torbi, both are 4 months old and absolutely love their raw!

LOL We are all curious why the switch to pre-made ground? It actually takes away from the benefits of a prey model raw diet...

You went from prey model to ground? Why would you do that? A prey model diet is much better than ground. And why no veggies? Dogs do need some fruits and veggies. They do not need a lot, but they do need some in order to balance their diet. Just feeding raw ground meat is going to make an unbalanced meal. Try adding a bit of broccoli, lettuce, spinach, or kelp.

Hehe, where in the world do you get the idea that dogs need fruits and veggies? What is in them that they don't get in meat, bones, and organs? What do you balance by adding fruits and veggies? When would a wild wolf in Montana ever come in contact with kelp? or broccoli? Or lettuce? or spinich?
