I'm confused on your 80/10/10. How are you getting in 10 percent bone right now? 80 (muscle meat)/10 (organ meat)/10 bone.

Sorry, yes you're right, I know I'm not feeding the bone yet, but trying to keep the meat ratios similar to that. Should have clarified.

Edit: Glad you asked that, however! Went back and re-read Sunflower's earlier post and now realized another mistake...still need to get the organ meat in there. Grrr, was thinking of the hearts as organs, but yep, they are muscle. I'm definitely new to this, hahaha.

Well, there you go. You found your missing link Bone is the very best poop solidifier. Does a fantastic job of emptying the anal glands, too.

Yeah, just when I think I'm starting to get it all figured out I feel more like an idiot! I know bone's part of it and just hadn't found any yet, but I definitely did not know that!



Have patience with me, folks!

No, no. No feeling like an idiot.

We all were new at this at some point, and made plenty of mistakes. I certainly did.

I will PM some links that helped clarify things for me. 'Cause what we know as organ meats are not considered organs when it comes to raw feeding a dog.

I would not feed liver for now. You are feeding kibble so your dog is getting some of what he needs from that.

For a good balance of meet a bone I do leg quarters or breast, bone in. You will have to chop it up, but a good cleaver will cut it with one or two hits!

Cleaver, scale, and dedicated cutting board that will hold up to a cleaver are my must haves.

Yep, will put it on the shopping list. We have a scale and a bajillion cutting boards. Just need batteries for the scale and that cleaver!
