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?

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!!!

Im sorry what the difference in the two im new to the idea of raw food feeding

RMB = Raw Meaty Bones (any food item that contains meat and edible bone)

MM = Muscle Meat (any meat without bone)

OM = Organ Meat (liver, kidney, brains, eyes)

That sounds better than my dog's raw diet. I keep trying to push a prey diet on my dog, but I cheat when I look at his watery stool. I watch my dog eating grass and know that there has to be a little more to it than just meat. From what I've read the diet should be 20ish percent bone mass to 80% protein. 5% can be taken from protein and you can feed greens, fruits, or whatever. Another 5% of that protein needs to be organ meat. Half of that organ meat needs to be liver. So stock up on packets of gizzards and livers at the grocery store. I find that if I take 3 fingers and take a greedy pinch out of both that that's about the right weight for my 85 pound Shepherd/Lab. I also tend to feed more bone when stools are lose, and less bone when stools are heavily calcified. They feel like dried up sandpaper.

Keep with the sardines for omega 3 and try to get a mix of 3-5 proteins per week. If the pup will eat the greens next to the meat or just soaked with the meat, you should do that. MUCH.LESS.WORK. It's easy if you look at their diets as a weekly basis instead of a daily basis. It's allowed to teeter-totter a little.

How much to feed is based on the projected weight of the adult dog. 2% of the adult weight is typical. Scale it to closer to 1.5 to 3% if the dog is less or more active. You should feel and see ribs on the dog, but the dog should look healthy. Not anemic. Not pudgy.
