So I have been thinking of switching Zelda to a raw diet. I have been doing all the research and reading I can, now looking for sources of different proteins and organs.
I think I have a problem, apparently nobody told Zelda she is a carnivore.
I was cooking a whole chicken for the fam, and decided to give Zelda the neck just to see what she would do. It was a small neck, about 3 inches only. She took it in her mouth and ran to her crate, where she dropped it! She looked at the neck then at me like what the heck is this thing! She then picked it back up made a couple of chewing motions then dropped it again. After about 5 minutes she finally ate it
I am thinking wow if it takes her that long to eat a tiny neck, its going to take her forever to eat a thigh!
She has never been a big eater, she will only eat about 2.5 cups of food, diamond hi-energy, and yes I have tried different brands of food, she will only eat that much, I can sometimes get her to eat up to 3 cups, but that is usually on a day she is really active and has done lots of training. I am worried that if I try and switch her to raw she wont eat enough to maintain her weight. At 59 pounds she is of good weight can feel the ribs easily but not really see them, but she has been down to 57 before and that is too thin for her, I wouldn't be unhappy if she put on a pound or 2.
