    I'm new to raw feeding

    I'm considering mixing raw food with kibble for my dog. Is this a good idea? Are there any specific ratios or feeding recommendations I should follow?

    Looking to add some variety and nutrition to your dog's raw food meals? There are many healthy options you can mix in! Consider chopped vegetables like carrots or green beans for fiber, or some berries for antioxidants. Cooked and cooled brown rice or oatmeal can provide complex carbohydrates for energy. Raw eggs are a great source of protein and healthy fats, while bone broth adds hydration and essential minerals. Remember, when unsure about a new ingredient, consult your veterinarian to ensure it's safe for your pup. For more information on what can I mix with raw dog food" explore the internet for detailed recipes and recommendations.

    I have never had any problems mixing cooked or raw meat - and vegetables - in with with a high quality grain-free kibble.

    I agree. This is a much easier way to add raw because you don't have to worry as much about getting the full range of nutrients from the raw portion (which can be daunting to some.

    I do recommend that you speak with your vet about feeding raw and discuss ingredients with them. Peas and lentils, and to a lesser extent potatoes, are still being researched in connection to dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM).

    Tally's salad which follows her kibble and meat. IMG_20231113_113138_hdr.jpg

    White cabbage, carrot, cucumber, sweet potato and red pepper. She will eat anything of course - except lettuce!

    My current don't do veggies. They are both junk food junkies.

    Bat-dog ate anything and everything except pineapple.

    My dogs like fruit. Apples, watermelon, blueberries and oranges. Not fans of veggies though

    Tally is a big fruit fan too. Banana is a big favourite, also red berries and tomatoes.

    Tell that to Tornado-dog when he prances around with a wrapped werther's caramel he stole from the candy dish for hours and then shoves it into your face so you'll unwrap it for him...

    I do make sure nothing contains zylitol or chocolate. And they only get it on rare occasions. But a butter rum life saver is a QUALITY treat.
