First one has a good recipe for Veggy Mush
Second one is a good source for complete fresh raw diet
Third one is a good source for supplements.

Is there a reason you decided on barf and not prey?

Why Prey-Model and Not BARF?

Sorry, I think I added the wrong link. But I went with a barf diet due to my GSD has EPI, and all his food needs to be treated with a powder to help digest the food for him. So a ground type of a diet works best for this.

You can have a ground up diet without it being a barf diet.

I don't see the correlation?

It doesn't even last two weeks!!!

So far I have purchased these veggies which include lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots and tomatoes.



On the meat side, I have chicken backs ONLY. I will get some organs like heart and liver later today.



This is what I gave my GSD this morning for breakfast. I understand you have to mix the veggies together to create a mixture. Did I do it right? I added two pieces of sardine from a can for him.



Is this enough food for him??? If anyone has there dog on BARF, can I have pictures of what your diet looks like? Thanx a bunch!!!
