    DefaultRaw Meal Recipes?

    I was hoping some people could help me get an idea for what some good healthy recipes look like for feeding labs raw. My fiancee and I are planning on getting a lab within the next few months. Assuming the dog is about 75 lbs, what would some good meals be? He will be given AT LEAST an hour's worth of walks everyday, likely going to the dog park at least 3-4 times a week, and playing frisbee on the days we don't get to the park. What would you guys recommend?

    I don’t really have recipes, I just go by cuts of meat and feed according to what their daily requirements for weight should be. So, lets say he’s 75 lbs………they say to feed 2-3% of his ideal adult weight. Is this an adult dog you are getting or are you starting with a puppy? Because that will make a difference in amounts and requirements.

    If its an adult dog at 75 lbs and you feel happy with that weight, then we’ll say about 2% per day is 1.5 lbs that he would need. So if you fed him twice you’d need two meals weighing .75 lbs each. Or one meal of 1.5 lbs broken down into approx. 80% meat, 10% bone and 10% organ.

    Some cuts I feed:

    Chicken Backs
    Chicken Quarters
    Chicken Thighs
    Pork Ribs
    Ground Pork
    Ground Beef
    Turkey Necks
    Ground Turkey
    Turkey Drumsticks
    Fish (whole tilapia, canned sardines & jack mack)
    Venison (mostly old roasts & ground that was leftover nobody wanted to eat)
    Duck frames (although my dogs do not care for it)
    Ground Bison

    Organ:
    Chicken Livers
    Beef Kidney
    Giblets

    Please research the raw diet thoroughly before jumping in. It sounds overwhelming, and it is at first but once you start you get the hang of it.

    Thank you so much! I have been doing a lot of reading, but I keep finding varying opinions on wether the diet should contain vegetables, fruit, etc. I was beginning to lose hope on ever getting response to this thread. I most likely will be adopting a one year old. So with the bones, do you pull them out of the cuts, or just guess how much bone is in each cut and adjust accordingly? For example, with the turkey drumstick, let's assume it weighs 1 lbs, would you strip off the meat and then weigh the bone and cut it down to size?

    P.s- those pictures of your dogs are beautiful. Remi especially caught my eye.
