Ok so hubby wants to start the pups on one raw feeding a day. We will still give them kibble in the morning. We have let them sample Rabbit, Deer, Eggs and Turkey. They haven't had any reactions to them.
So here is what I have in my pantry for them.
Rabbit Prechopped with bones
Chicken drumsticks and gizzard (livers are coming in 2 weeks)
Deer lots of muscle meet and rib bones also liver and kidney
Pink salmon and Mackeral canned
Eggs
Vitamin C powder
Kelp
Alfalfa
Vitamin E oil 200
Salmon Oil

I am undecided about veggies. I figure I might add carrots, brocolli, green beans every other day to their meal. Maybe variate it a little but keep the veggies to a minimum.

Can you help me out a little here? Anything I am lacking? I was going to order the cider vinegar but the cost to ship was way to much.

Oh! And our store has milkfish and tilapia, gutted. How much of them do I give the dogs? One whole fish as a meal? I was thinking once a month.

I think your list of foods look great--you're got a variety of different proteins, and it looks like you've given this some research and planning. Good for you.

Fish you can feed as often as you want to--just use it like any other meat. If it has bones, you can consider it an RMB. If filleted, them treat it as MM. Mine get fresh raw mackerel and sardines (as well as canned versions of these fish) regularly.

About fruit--sure, you can feed some fruit. Mine like frozen strawberries, blueberries and raspberries, and bits of fresh banana. I don't give them too much--just a few berries about once a week, and a bite of banana every now and then. Don't feed grapes or raisins. Those should not be fed to dogs.

They don't have tripe at my store. And I can't order it. I'm not sure I want to handle a fresh deer stomach either.


Broccoli is listed as ok in my Natural nutrition book.

I can get wild boar on rare occasions.
Beef is restricted to mm for me. Makes me look forward to when I can get back to the states!

Thanks about the fruit. I'll work my way up to adding those in.
I knew about the grapes but not if there were any others.
