lovemytb One more thing I also give sardines but only few times a week if that. And raw organic eggs every other day with the shell. I give him one egg each time.

I highly recommend you stick to the premade ground that MPC sells, because it has the right amounts for your dog and you won't make any mistakes feeding him.
Well he loves chunks as well and I really want to give him those as they are good for his teeth and he is looking forward to those. Its his favorite meal when he gets it. I do buy more ground stuff than I buy chunks (those are more money anyways). I started giving him organs separately just a few months ago. I don't keep giving it to him every day he just gets it one day and the next he gets his ground or chunks. I rotate everything and never do the same meat for weeks on.

Why? I only gave it to him once and it was in chunks. He loves it. I don't give it often either. He only gets it few times a month as its expensive and I stick to other protein but would love to know why not feed Mutant.

Lauri & The Gang Switch to beef KNUCKLE bones, not the legs bone, or scoop out all the marrow from the leg bones before giving them. That should fix the loose stool issue.

The percentages are either:
  • 45% Raw Meaty Bones
  • 50% Muscle Meat
  • 5% Organ Meat

OR
  • 85% Muscle Meat
  • 10% ACTUAL bone - no meat included in this amount)
  • 5% Organ Meat

I think it's easier to calculate the Raw Meaty Bones than the ACTUAL bone so that's what I feed and recommend.

As for growing too fast - most puppies grow more slowly on a raw diet. It's the carbs that can cause problems.

I am not a fan of honest kitchen. I know there are a lot of fans here, but I don't think those ingredients are suitable for a carnivore.
Yes all my raw meat comes from MPC. I don't buy from anyone else.
