starting out raw diet for 8 week old puppy
Hello, this is my very first post on this website. Im glad i found a place with what seems to be valuable infomration from alot of people who are experienced with feeding raw diets to their dogs.
I've been doing alot of research for the past couple of weeks and i have some concerns that i would like if some of you could give me your advice on.
I'm picking up my 8 week old german shepherd in a few days and im concerned with his first week of food that i have planned for him. I was going to feed him chicken wings that i would mash up so that he wouldn't have a problem eating them. I read that as long as i start making his diet more balanced after the initial few days to a week of starting him on a raw diet i should be fine. Should i be concerned that he wont be getting an 80/10/10 diet for his first week considering chicken wings are around 46% bones. Should i buy some chicken breast so that the percentage of bones are closer to 10% a day instead of 46%?
Keep in mind i will be adding different protein sources and eventually getting him on a 80/10/10 diet after the first week. I just wanted to make sure that feeding him such a high percentage of bones for the first week wasnt going to be harmful for him, considering he might have constipation from all the bones.
