The bone to meat ratio is going to be variable depending on the dog. If I had fed the amount of bone to my present dog that my previous dog needed poor Mithrandir would be so constipated he'd blow up. The amount of daily food required is 2 to 3 % of the desired weight. A puppy will require a much larger amount of food than a grown dog. Mithrandir as a puppy ate 7 to 9 lbs, he now only eats 3 lbs. Obtaining a chest freezer is absolutely necessary to feed a dog. It allows you to take advantage of various bulk sales. I do occasionally feed some veggie matter, often using that day to provide a lighter meal rather than fasting ciao
Thanks for the replies everyone. Heather, I do have a chest freezer now, thank goodness or I would not be able to even think about raw for the pup. SO with feeding a dog bone does it follow similar rules to ferrets? Observe poop is the best way to know?
The commercial raw I am getting is the chicken&beef/bison and then some of just the beef/bison. It looks like the beef/bison would be lower in bone. I figured if I mix the organs etc with the comm raw it would help even out the higher amount of bone.
