Re: help wanted: switching my puppy to raw food diet
raw chicken bones are entirely safe. it is cooked chicken bones that are dangerous and should never be fed to a dog. (ANY cooked bone is dangerous.)
That's my assessment of your planned diet--there's no bone. And raw bones are an absolutely essential part of the diet. Much more essential than pureed vegetables.
Ground beef is fine to feed as muscle meat, but that should be less than half the diet. The other half should be raw meaty bones--chicken, fish, rabbit, turkey, any other game bird---what are the small-animal meats available to you in the Philippines? I'm guessing you have great access to fresh fish--that would be a terrific food for your pup.
Check out the Raw/BARF section of this board and read through the many threads. Lots of info, and lots of helpful, experienced raw-feeders.
I also agree that 900 grams is a more appropriate amount of food per day, split into 2 or 3 meals. Of that 900 grams, approximately 400 should be muscle meat, 450 should be raw meaty bones, 50 organ meat. Veggies would be additional, and not more than 100 grams or so.
