Do Raw Feeding Right


Raw feeding for dogs is becoming a lot more common and easier to accomplish in today's day and age as it's become cheaper than ever. The one big mistake most people make is not ensuring that their dog's are getting the nutrients they need because feeding raw isn't just throwing a bunch of random food together in a bowl. It's imperative to feed a balanced diet and working with your vet in the process.


The basic structure of a raw meal goes as followers according to Fido Savvy:

  • 1 1/2 cups of raw meat (including some on the bone - this is important)

  • 1/2 cup vegetables/fruit (either lightly steam these or run them through a juicer or food processor before adding to other ingredients)

  • 2tsp of fish oil

  • Vitamin/Mineral supplement as directed on product

  • Plenty of fresh water to drink.

Meat should be human grade and if using foul, it's best to use the chicken necks, thighs, wings and even feet. The safest veggies to use are Brussel sprouts, carrots, okra, green beans, peas, pumpkin, squash, cauliflower, romaine lettuce, celery, sweet potatoes and parsley. You can add some fruits if you like such as apples, pears, strawberries, blueberries and bananas. In case you need to add any 'extras', try the following for added benefits: Cottage Cheese, raw eggs, almonds/peanuts, sunflower seeds, kelp, wheatgrass or plain yogurt.​

Here are a few easy raw recipes that can help get you started on the raw diet journey thanks to Dogs Naturally Magazine:

Not everyone has the time to prepare raw meals from scratch every day which is where the convenience of prepared food brands come in. And now, most pet stores have frozen/refigerated sections for raw food. Some brands such as Just Food For Dogs and Ollie will create a custom meal plan for your pup to ensure they are getting all he essential nutrients for their age, size and breed. Brands like Stella & Chewy and Small Batch create different frozen raw foods in variations such as full meals to toppers.
