    The biggest misunderstanding about raw feeding is that is has too much protein. Hardly any fresh raw meat has more than 20% protein in it. So how did Tyson react to raw food?

    Great, go for it. Just remember to start slowly. Just one kind of meat for the first few weeks and then one by one introduce new protein sources.

    its fine tuning the diet ,stick with chicken breast,backs/frames for at least 3 weeks then add another protein and so on,leave the organs till last and only add a bit at each feed,karen

    Was your chicken enhanced? This causes issues in dogs because there is too much sodium.

    I'm jealous! Chicken is pretty expensive here. Sometimes I buy whole chickens, cut the breasts for us and feed the rest to the dogs. A lot of their diet is beef heart.

    I live in Nebraska, you would think beef would be cheap and easy to come by, but none of the butchers will sell me scraps or bones! :/

    I agree. Half my sources are from the middle of nowhere.
