    DefaultHelp with a raw recipe

    Just was wondering if this is a good recipe for a beginner wanting to do raw food? If not what additions/deletions would you recommend?

    My opinion: Yes, this recipe is better than feeding your dog kibble. Since you are just starting out with raw, I don't see anything wrong with feeding this until you get used to it. But my end goal would be to move over to a prey model diet. Meaning feeding raw meaty bones (ex. chicken wings/backs), muscle meat and organ meat. You'll find that after mixing up that recipe a few times, switching over to a prey model diet will be much easier...no veggies to prepare, no bone meal powder to buy etc.

    I know starting raw takes some learning up front. Have you read Tom Lonsdale's book...I forget the title. You could do a search for his name on this forum, I believe you'll find a link to his free ebook.

    But yeah, I'd go ahead and get started with the link you provided...with the intention of moving to a prey model diet. Good luck!

    That sounds like TOO much work , and too many ingredients for me.;.... I've only been feeding my guys raw for about 3 or 4 weeks now, but I jumped in and started feeding complete raw, right away. I started with just chicken necks, and have progressed from there. It is a LOT easier than what that article suggests.

    I think it sounds good to get you started. I started out on a very formulaic, recipe-type diet and it worked well for me when I was first starting out, until I felt comfortable enough to branch out and start feeding without the recipe "safety net", if you will.

    So yah, sounds like a great place to start to me.

    No I have not read Tom Lonsdale's book, I will have to look it up. The "recipe-type" diet gives me kind of a safety net right now. I think (like you said) that after I while I will start to feel more comfortable with the whole idea. Thanks for the tips.

    When I began Caleb on raw I gave him chicken backs for a few weeks and then began to introduce other protien sources. In the long run, feeding raw is not much work. It is fairly simple.
