RAW DIET

Raw Diet

Improper Diet causes hip dysplasia

Raw diet is excellent for dogs that have allergies.

Raw prevents Worms.

If you feed dry dog food is suggest Royal Canin

 

 

Research shows the wolf pack leader eats all the organs in the cavity before eating any muscle meat. This is proven in over 350 studies by wolf experts. I do not follow all the other people’s online assumptions of what they think they know about feeding a raw diet. I base my knowledge by reading the studies on wolves.

Dogs should eat 5% of their body weight

Ratio of feeding Raw Model Prey Diet

50% organs (liver, gizzards, tripe, lung, kidney, pancreases)

10% Raw bone

40% muscle meat (including heart)

 

I do not feed any PORK! Possible risk of Trichinosis, also known as trichinellosis. (Roundworm)

 

I have a list below of the foods I would approve.

THE PURPOSE OF FEEDING A RAW DIET IS NOT TO COOK ANYTHING!

DO NOT COOK THE BONES, THE BONES WILL SPLINTER!

 

ROTTWEILER PUPPIES MEAL

 

One meal for an 8 week old puppy

  • Chicken Liver (top left)
  • Tripe (top right) – This was substituted until I got the green Tripe
  • Beef (lower left)
  • Mashed up chicken necks (bone included) (lower right)
  • One Egg (minium two times a week)

 

 

Chicken hearts & liver 2 times a week

  • 12 pcs of hearts
  • 1 liver
  • Purchase at a butcher or Woollies

 

MUSCLE MEATS

 

Raw beef steaks

  • Purchase at a butcher
  • Get from a Slaughter house
  • Korean meat market
  • World market

 

 

Raw beef trimmings

  • Purchase at a butcher
  • Get from a Slughter house
  • Korean meat market
  • World market

 

Beef Heart

  • Heart is NOT an organ meat, it is a muscle meat
  • Purchase at a butcher or Slaughter house or Woolworths
  • Buy the whole heart and cut yourself
  • This heart weighed 5lbs

 

Beef / Cow Tongue

  • Muscle meat
  • Purchase at a butcher or Slaughter house
  • Buy the whole tongue and cut yourself
  • This tongue weighed 3.5lbs

 

ORGAN MEATS

 

Raw chicken leg quarters

  • DO NOT cook the chicken, it will cause the bones to splinter
  • 2kg bags at woolworths or coles

 

Cleaned tripe – human consumption (cleaned and bleached)

  • Organ Meat
  • Bleached tripe has less minerals
  • very expensive
  • only use this as a substitute and last resort

 

Green tripe

  • Organ Meat
  • Buy from a butcher
  • Feed 1 cup 2 times a week

Green tripe is the unprocessed, unbleached, and unscaled stomach of ruminant animals. It is usually beige, gray, or black in colour, and contains gastric enzymes as well as partially digested plant material. Grass-fed green tripe will usually reflect a green tint or sheen from absorption of the animal’s natural diet of grasses.

Green tripe is said to be one of the most nutritionally complete all natural foods available for your carnivore, with fatty acids Omegas 3 & 6, and the ideal Calcium to Phosphorus ratio of 1:1. It also contains Lactic Acid Bacteria, more commonly known as the probiotic ingredient Lactobacillus Acidophilus, which can aid in digestion.

I do not agree, as some say, this is a complete balanced died to feed tripe only to your dog. Carnivores eat bone for the marrow, and muscle meat for protein. Bone also has lots of natural calcium to help the dogs joints grow and form. Liver is high in iron that helps oxygen to parts of the body for growth.

 

Chicken gizzards

  • Organ meat
  • 3% of the meal
  • Purchase at a butcher or Woolies or Coles
  • purchase 30lb case to usually get a discount

 

Beef intestines

  • Organ meat
  • Purchase at Butcher
  • Substitute for tripe
  • can feed as a extra for weight gain

 

Beef Liver

  • Organ meat
  • 5% of the meal
  • Purchase at a butcher or Slaughter house
  • Buy the whole liver and cut yourself

Older dogs do not usually like the taste of liver.

It is much easier when you start feeding Raw as a puppy.

 

 

Beef Lung

  • Organ meat
  • .5% organ meat
  • Purchase at a butcher or Slaughter house or try Woolies and Coles
  • Buy the whole lung and cut yourself

This organ meat is very light and feels awkward. It looks very big, but may weigh only 1lb

 

Beef Spleen

  • Organ meat
  • .5% ratio of organ meat
  • Purchase at a butcher or Slaughter house

Note: do not feed much because it is high in Iron.

 

Beef Kidneys

  • Organ meat
  • 1% ratio of organ meat
  • Purchase at a butcher or Slaughter house
  • Buy the whole kidney and cut yourself

Dogs are like wolves, the dogs mitochondrial DNA is 99.8% the same as wolves. The wolves do not eat the stomach contents of there prey. The only time it may be consumed is if the prey is small like a rabbit because the whole rabbit is consumed, otherwise the wolf shakes out the contents of the stomach, and sometimes eats the stomach wall or lining.

There is a book 2003 “Wolves: Behavior, Ecology, and conservation” that is compiled of 350 years of research, field observations, and experiments. here is a Quote take from chapter 4, The wolf as a carnivore.

“Wolves usually tear into the body cavity of large prey and…consume the larger internal organs, such as lungs, heart, and liver. The large rumen [, which is one of the main stomach chambers in large ruminant herbivores,]…is usually punctured during removal and its contents spilled. The vegetation in the intestinal tract is of no interest to the wolves, but the stomach lining and intestinal wall are consumed, and their contents further strewn about the kill site.”

“To grow and maintain their own bodies, wolves need to ingest all the major parts of their herbivorous prey, except the plants in the digestive system.” – Wolf Hybrid copyright Rosann Bentley
