Raw Fed Dogs - Natural Prey Model Rawfeeding Diet A Starter Guide People new to raw feeding all have the same questions: “how do I start”, “what exactly do I feed?”, “how much do I feed?” All too often, people are not given the information or confidence they need to begin and this is an unfortunate barrier to getting their dog off kibble, especially if their vet is against raw feeding. This is the guide that we give to all our dog adopters at K9 Rescue. As you will learn, there really are only a few hard and fast rules in canine nutrition. i) RAW FEEDING GUIDELINES The key points to remember with a raw diet are: · Balance over time – one meal could have more bone content, another more meat or organ. 80% meat, sinew, ligaments, fat 10% edible bone 5% liver 5% other organ meat · Meats are high in phosphorus, bones are high in calcium. · Organ meat should not exceed 10% of the diet overall and 5% of that should be liver (beef liver has the highest nutrient levels). ii) HOW MUCH TO FEED So for example: Puppies iii) WHAT TO FEED Puppies & Bones

How would you feel if you found out that someone was secretly poisoning your dog AND getting paid to do it? Would you be livid? Kibble...whether it's pretty bone shaped pieces, the kind that makes a smelly gravy when you add warm water, or off of your vets own office shelves it IS STILL POISON whether it comes in a bag...can...roll...or whatever other form you can get it in! Ever wondered what is in that bag of kibble that you buy? The Dark Side Of RecyclingDoes Your Dog Food Bark If you have read this information and have decided that you are open to the idea of feeding a raw, natural diet to your dog CONGRATULATIONS! Of course this is only my opinion but I am sharing what has worked for me and my pets. BONES and MYTHS Lets just get the issue of bones out of the way right at the beginning. My first suggestion is to weigh your dog.

Does Your Dog Food Bark? A Study of the Pet Food Fallacy (From Natural Pet, March-April 1995 issue) Proteins are the building blocks of life and must be of good quality in order to sustain it. To survive, your cherished animal companion must be provided with proteins. The pet food industry would have us believe that their foods provide a "complete and balanced diet" for our pets. What do these proteins consist of and how good are they? Animal proteins consist of diseased meat, road kills, contaminated material from slaughterhouses, faecal matter, euthanized cats and dogs, poultry feathers, all prepared together as rendered material. The animal proteins used in these foods come from a number of different sources. If the animal arrives at the "receiving plan" in a state of decomposition it is transported to a rendering plant along with road kill which is too large to be buried along the road side. In Canada, the chemical used to "denature" is Birkolene b. The AAFCO: Official Publication 1993.

The Dark Side Of Recycling Published in the fall 1990 issue of Earth Island Journal (Note: In February 1990, the San Francisco Chronicle carried a macabre two-part story detailing how stray dogs and cats and pound animals are routinely rounded up by meat renderers and ground up into -- of all things -- pet food. According to Keith Wood, the researcher who brought the information to the Chronicle, the paper buried the story and deleted many of the charges Wood had documented. A report Wood worked on for ABC television's 20/20 was similarly watered down. In exasperation, Wood brought his story to Earth Island Journal. The rendering plant floor is piled high with "raw product". Two bandanna-masked men begin operating Bobcat mini-dozers, loading the "raw" into a ten-foot deep stainless steel pit. Rendering is the process of cooking raw animal material to remove the moisture and fat. Once the mass is cut into small pieces, it is transported to another auger for fine shredding.
