I have started feeding my dogs Sojos dog food. It looks rather like oatmeal, and you mix in water, your own raw meat and other goodies. I would be interested to see what other Sojo users add to the mix. Thanks!
Veggies do provide fiber, carbs, vitamins & minerals and phytochemicals but you would be better off buying frozen corn, peas & carrots or kale and giving that to the dog. I cant see spending money on that kind of product. Gimmick. Kelp is probably the best to feed and its dirt cheap at an asian market.Why is it a total waste? I would be very interested to hear more info on it. My breeder and I were discussing Frankie's diet the other day, he is on a raw diet BTW, and she suggested that I replace one of his meals with Sojo's and keep the other meal the same RMB/MM/OM ration. She said he would get a more balanced diet as far as nutrition that way. She brought this up because she said he was not getting enough vegetables as it is right now.
The kelp and flax are the most important things in that, frankly Nupro might be better as a supplement for a raw fed dog. You already have fresh eggs.We had tried to feed him a few different leafy greens, green beans, and carrots but he wont eat them. I pureed them a bit in the food processor with water or yogurt or steamed them, to break down the cell walls, and mixed it in with his food but he would always eat around it. She said that her dogs ate this like candy so I thought that perhaps it would be worth a shot. She is letting us buy it at her reduced breeder rate. If it is not a substantial amount of nutrients though we wont waste our time. I looked at the ingredients and it seems to have some good stuff in there...
Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Broccoli, Celery, Apples, Whole Egg, Flax Meal, Parsley Leaf, Calcium Carbonate, Carob Powder, Kelp Powder, Alfalfa, Ginger Root, Garlic
If I could get my hands on some green tripe this wouldn't be an issue! She said they need 25% of their diet to consist of fruits and vegetables if on a raw diet. I was under the impression this was not true.
