10week to start???
Planning on feeding Raw.

Any tips on the following:

First 2 weeks will be Chicken Thighs
Afterwards 2 weeks with Chicken Thighs plus Beef and Green Tripe
Another 2 but add Venison.
(So giving 2 weeks time with each new meat)

Every other 3 days a Raw egg and shell.
Once a day a blend of sweet potatoes, kale,apples and blueberries.

Daily with meals will add 1tsp of yogurt and olive oil

Any tips or suggestions?!?!?!

You normally start on minced chicken or chicken breast then gradually move onto bone/offal/other meat/veg.
I would suggest that before you do anything research, research, research. Ready any bit of information you can find - there is heaps and it is all helpful. Don't rush into it!

I suggest joining the Facebook group BARF DIET CHAT - there you will find HEAPS of documents for starting out and feeding raw. There is also lots of good questions being asked usually by people starting out. There are also feeding plans and heaps of resources. It is invaluable.

Good luck feeding raw!

Know your ratios too of bone, muscle meat and organ meat.

It's really important in a growing dog to get the ratios correct.

I tried joining that facebook group and they keep denying me ( I assume because I am not in the UK) but there is no way to message the group which I find weird.
