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!
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
Offal: heart, liver (don’t over do the liver), brain, tripe, hearts, tongues, spleen, pancreas
Fish: tinned fish, whole fish
Fruit: bananas, apples, pears
Vegetables: parsnips, carrots
Some foods are not good for me, e.g. chocolate, onions, grapes, raisins and avocados so please don’t give these to me!
