So I have a local butcher who I didn't realize made raw ground dog meat for $2 a pound.
My question is should I invest since I will be switching to raw? Here is the short video showing what they put in one of the mixes.
A comment posted by a watcher - Your mix is 84% muscle/15% fat/1% bone. The recommended raw feed ratio is 80% muscle/10% organ/10% bone. Heart is considered as muscle not organ, such as liver. Your mix has unneeded fat and is missing organ and bone.
So here's my question. Assuming I can't keep a decent budget with individual items how bad would it be to have this as part of the mix? The fat is unneeded as far as I know, but my dog does need to gain weight so perhaps that is good?
Since the bone content is low and the other things as well could I included mostly bone meats in addition? Of course organ as well once she can handle that.
Just wanting some thoughts. I still have to get individual prices so it may not be worth my money for this, but I wanted your opinions since I've never done raw.
I was thinking of starting on the all chicken version and moving her up to the other meats that way her stomach can handle it. Is this a good idea?
If you guys think this is a good idea I would do this is addition to normal meats and and such.
