New to raw feeding- how do YOU weigh bones?
I have been doing a lot of research on raw feeding over the past month to try and prepare myself for the puppy I will be getting this November. I know about how great feeding raw is for dogs, and I want to make sure I have as much information as possible before I bring my bundle of joy home. So, most of what I'm reading says the diet should be 80% meat, 10% bone, 5% liver, and 5% other organs. I'm just wondering how all you experts ensure these are the ratios that your dogs are getting? Particularly when it comes to bone. For example, if you feed your dogs chicken legs, are you actually de-boning the legs and weighing the bones separately from the meat to ensure that your bones are making up 10% of the weekly diet. Or would you just feed the entire chicken leg as is? Any information I can get would be greatly recommended.
Also, I know this gets asked all the time, and the answer differs for everyone...but...
I live in a small town in the Mid-West. How on earth can I do this affordably? About how much does it cost you guys to feed one male GSD a month? (my puppy is a male). I looked up some options for ordering online, but all of the sites I saw were extremely expensive. Any information/tips for raw feeding on a budget would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
