It DOES get easier, but I understand!
Below are 2 GREAT easy, balanced diet ways of feeding raw until you get confidence. You simply get ground chuck or round and ground turkey (Jennie'O and Purdue have a 93%/7%) from your grocery store and use it with either mix ! You can add Sardines (canned in water) and eggs a few times per week too!
See Spot Live Longer™ Homemade Dinner Mixes blended with fresh lean meats (lightly cooked or raw) make the most nutritious and delicious meals you can serve your dogs. It's easy. Just add 2 tablespoons (4 for puppies) of our special mix to one pound of fresh beef, chicken, turkey, or lamb, and add a can of sardines or fish oils weekly. (The dog is the fats she eats more than any other nutrient:
Fragile fats such as those in fish are best served at time of feeding.) Serve the meat raw or cooked. Either way, it makes a nutritious, mineral-rich, AAFCO-compliant, high-protein, low-carbohydrate, natural diet. You add the meat and the fish oils or sardines, and we give you everything necessary to meet all accepted standards for the micronutrient content of dog foods for all life stages.
When mixed according to directions, See Spot Live Longer™ Homemade Dinner Mixes are formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for adults and for all life stages.
A typical 35-pound dog will need one bag per month.
