I don't mix anything with the prey model raw diet, because it's perfect as it is.
Oatmeal is species inapporpriate and I wouldnt bother feeding it. It holds no nutritional value to canines and serves as a filler.
I thought about adding steel-cut oats before I switched to raw, however it's just not a necessity. All grains are not for dogs, unless we are traveling through Kansas on a wagon to finding the new frontier without meat with a hungry dog.
Most humans should only eat grain as part of a balanced diet.
(50% protein with 50% grain)
Example: If I'm at Subway, I request additional meat to help balance the protein/grain level. I always request all the veggies.:smile:
I was working with an senior citizen last week who is borderline type 2 diabetes. He was never taught how to eat with a balance to his diet. Now, he must cut sugars, or sugar producing food out for a month before he's labeled a diabetic at his next office visit.
He's attitude is leaning toward living with pharm pills on a daily basis, being overweight and eating cheaply, (carbohydrates).
Too many people are afraid to die and afraid to live. That's what I call living in frustration with willful ignorance.
