Sample Food

LiliIf you decide to feed me raw food then you should try feeding roughly 2%-3% of my body weight every day – including edible bones.

For example, if like me your dog is a fabulous 25kg then you should feed me roughly 500g of raw food. You can serve it to me in one meal, or several smaller ones at whatever times suit you and your dog.

For dogs under 11kg:

1kg-2kg: 10% of body weight
3kg-4kg: 7% of body weight
5kg-8kg: 5% of body weight
9kg-10kg: 3% of body weight
11kg and over: 2% of body weight

Doggies don’t need a lot of carbohydrates or sugars for energy as we can’t digest it. We need fat, essential fatty acids (Omega 6 and Omega 3) and protein (containing amino acids).


Eggs are very nutritious and a perfect supplement to a raw food diet. I love to crack them open myself, although my mammy thinks that I’m just being plain messy!

Sample diet

Lamb: any bones, sheep heads, neck, ribs, spines
Chicken: carcasses, wings and necks
Rabbit: carcasses, fur and guts
Pork: any bones, pigs trotters, pig’s head, tail
Beef: oxtails, ribs, cheek, calf bones

For those with more money to spend than is good for them you could try pheasant, duck, pigeon, quail, day old chicks, goats, deer, geese or turkey

Remember the bones need to be RAW as cooked bones can splinter

Others/extras

Offal: heart, liver (don’t over do the liver), brain, tripe, hearts, tongues, spleen, pancreas
Fish: tinned fish, whole fish
Raw eggs
Fruit: bananas, apples, pears
Vegetables: parsnips, carrots

Avoid

Some foods are not good for me, e.g. chocolate, onions, grapes, raisins and avocados  so please don’t give these to me!
