I am thinking about getting back into feeding RAW to my 100 lb 7 year old neutered GSD. My old formula was:
put 4 apples, 4 bananas, medium sized box of blueberries (1 lb), 3 pounds heart meat, 8 eggs (shell and all), 8 cloves of garlic, 3 large cooked yams, 1 head of romaine lettuce, alfalfa sprouts, 1 large tub of low sugar plain yogurt into a food processor and blend all together. Then mix with with lean ground hamburger at a ration of 65% hamburger and 35% mixture. I then separated into 1 lb freezer bags and froze until needed. I also cut up fresh chicken back / necks into 1 pound freezer bags and froze. He would then get a pound of the hamburger mixture in the morning and a pound of the chicken back / necks at night.
Does anyone see any problems with this formula???? Any help would be appreciated.

|Rodimus80||I just started my boy (11 months) on a RAW diet last week consisting of chicken quarters and some liver spread throughout. He also gets marrow bones here and there and I will be introducing him to some turkey necks. So far it's been great. His coat is looking good, his energy is great and the bad breath is gone. Not too mention that the poop that comes from a RAW feed dog is so easy during clean-up time. I will never be going back to kibble!|

I have a 9 week old GSD that will be getting next weekend. I see a lot of posts saying that any puppy 8 weeks and old can get on BARF right away. Is there any restriction on bones for a puppy?
I didn't see any comments on this and the Raw Dog Ranch site didn't comment either. Thanks.

Thanks for the info, J&M. I ended up putting the egg between meat and pressing it so that it breaks. Flint eats it all up and then tries to drag the shell off and I have to tell him to keep it in the bowl.
He sure likes his new diet and he's no longer licking his front legs. In fact, I gave him some of his dry food (Nutro Senior) on Wednesday morning and by that evening, he was back to licking away.

Over the weekend, my neighbors driving by said hello and I see you're spoiling those babies!
I was standing out on the patio with a carton of brown eggs and all three of my dogs sitting waiting for their "treat!" Oh, who can sit soonest, who can sit stillest, who is squirming in his seat now?
I just put the whole egg in their eager mouths, they drop it on the pavement and it cracks and they lap it up. Except for old girl. She just starts chewing as soon as it hits her tongue, haha!! And if the younger two don't eat their shells, you can count on her to make quick of those, as well. Sound like tater chips for dogs!

Still wondering about you serve the eggs and the shells.

Great thread here. Thanks, Laura, for rawdogranch.
My 11 year old lab struggles with licking, so I am gonna start a BARF diet. The only question that I have that does not seem to be answered is what do you do with the eggs? Do you simply crack them on top of whatever else you're putting in the dog bowl along with the shell? Do you blend them with other ingredients? Thanks.

I have a 5 year old GS who is a great dog but he has recently been diagnosed with anal fistullas. The vet suggested I put him on a LID which I did but he it hasnt gotten much better. He sheds terribly and now the vet has put him on prescription hypoallergenic food which is very expensive. I'veread some things on raw diets and I'm wondering if that will help him heal as well as get rid of his allergies (he constantly licks his paws). Is there an easy guide on how to feed a dog a raw diet and how much to feed him. Chief weighs 94 pounds
