    Ok. I picked up ground sirloin. Ground chicken. Beef liver and kidney and fresh bone meal from the butcher. I will mix at the ratio. Sound good ?????? By the way they gave me the bone meal for free

    Always with me

    The easiest accessible is kidneys. They sell those in the local grocery stores. I'm not sure how it is in the north but down here in the south you'll find things like hog maw, chitterlings, and brains and even something called offal that is a mix of secreting and non-secreting organs and sweetbread that has pancreas.

    The Asian stores - especially the Filipino store - is an organs gold mine! They can be pricey though.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    Sound good! Especially with the free bone meal! W00t!

    Just a note on ground meat - it's good... but if your dog can consume non-ground stuff, even better. There are benefits to the chewing and tearing action required to process non-ground food - dental health and mental stimulation. Also, ground meat may have a higher bacteria load because of all that exposed surface area of the meat as opposed to meat chunks.

    But, if that's what you're comfortable with - go for it! It's all good!

    With Bella's enzymes, I thought it would be easier to mix with ground. But i will look into chunks next. Ground beef scared me because of the fat content. So I am just doing trial and error. Thank you so much for your help.

    With Voitto I just mix together 50% bone/meat mix(50/50), 10% organ(of which 50% organ) 30% meat and 10% veggies, tripe or fat. I add kelp, crushed egg shell and some oil. I know that will make 25% bone, but my boys do really well with it. Usko's diet is a bit different, cause of his hyperuricosuria. He doesn't get any organs and doesn't eat his veggies, so he gets his vitamins from the bottle. They also get bone to chew for fun.
