I haven’t blogged about my dogs’ diets in a long time. Last July… one year ago in fact, I started feeding them raw. I avoided reading about it for a long time, knowing that once I read all the info, and the bad things about kibble (low quality kibble especially) that I’d switch. Finally I read the info, and I switched the dogs.
Well, they are doing super on raw. They all love to eat, and I love feeding them fresh foods. After trying Prey Model raw, and BARF, and Volhard.. I’ve decided on a combination. We still follow Volhard, but mostly I put it together myself now instead of buying the dehydrated version that I get through the mail, and need bigger Mailboxes for! But all those supplements… are they really necessary, what do you think?
I found a local game processing plant that sells ground elk/buffalo mix for $0.69 a pound. They have been getting that with some chicken with bone. I might go buy some more chicken necks. I really think it’s odd to feed bone meal, why not feed the whole bone? Jen will probably come dispute me about this. 😉
Anyway, feeding raw is great. It’s messy, it’s time consuming, but it’s so worth it!
