Newbie to Raw feeding have some questions
So I just started Penny on RAW today.. she loves it and actually shows interest in eating it instead of her kibble. She got 1/2lb of ground pork for breakfast and another 1/2lb for dinner.
So my questions are...
I know for her weight (she is 52lbs) that she should be getting 1lb of food a day (this is going by 2% of her current body weight not sure if I should be doing 3% as I dont think she is going to grow much more) and of that 1lb it should be 10% fat? Can someone please correct me if this is wrong.
Two... I have also read (on multiple sites) that you can feed stuff that has been freezer burnt. Now I just bought a deep freezer (another just for Penny lol ) and have gotten quite a bit of Turkey, Chicken,Venison, and Moose,from people who were going to throw it out because it was freezer burnt. Is this ok to keep feeding her? How old can the meat be (all of it has roughly been in a freezer for about a year)?
Third... I have someone offering to give me bear meat from last years kill (roughly 30lbs)... Is bear meat ok to feed to dogs?
I also just placed an order at my butchers for a case of turkey necks and chicken backs (not going to start her on RMB for about two weeks again this is just from what I read and going by that so please correct anything if I am wrong) beef liver, beef heart and beef rib. So she is not going to be strictly getting older stuff she will be getting a mixture....
I am going to actually do a spreadsheet and have everything planned, as I already have quite a bit (roughly 100lbs of meat) so need to start making meal plans... Am I missing something that should be in her diet? Would she be ok on mostly game meat? I know so many people that hunt that is willing to GIVE AWAY any remaining last years meat so rabbit, deer, moose, turkey, duck, and bear so if Penny could live off of mostly game meat that would be great and easy for me to get my hands on for dirt cheap and even free! (Just got 50lbs of Venison for free from last year all different cuts ect).
