    Default Hi there- My new puppy on raw feeding

    Hi guys and girls
    I am new to all this and I will be given a new bulldog tomorrow by one of my friends he has recommended to use raw feeding to build her strength up as previous owner was very irresponsible so want to build it up again.
    Only problem is where do I start and is there anything cheaper out in the UK markets for my puppy. She is 5 months old and has lost so much weight. What is your best advice people
    Thank you in advance

    Hi and welcome to EBN. My advice is to buy pre-made raw food for puppy's. In my opinon if you don't have any experience on raw feeding this isn't the time to start making it yourself. Or you can get a local raw feeding expert to plan a diet for your pup. I have no idea what is available in your area so I can't give any better advice.

    Hello,

    Welcome to you and your bully. Raw feeding can be easy and tricky at the same time.

    I live in India and have a 5 1/2 month EB puppy and a 5 year old Boxer (Bella & Rudy; Pics attached)
    The Boxer has been on Raw for about 2 years now
    Bella has 2 feeds of Raw and 1 feed of kibble per day

    Sources: Chicken, Beef, occasional Lamb, Eggs (boiled and raw), fruits and boiled veggies (sometimes), milk/curd, cottage cheese
    Quantity: 450 gms of raw meat and bone per day (split into morn and evening meals); afternoon meal is 75 gms of dry Kibble
    Ratio: 80% meat, 20% bones, 10% organs (approx, usually balanced over 2-3 days)
    Supplements: Flaxseed Oil or Salmon Oil

    I usually buy food for 3 to 4 days. Portion it out and store it in the fridge (not freezer)
    Come feeding time, I pour warm water over the meat and bones and let it sit for 3 mins to take away the chill.
    Then dump it in the bowl and see it disappear in 60 seconds

    The trick is to feed portions that are big enough to force them to chew (otherwise you risk gulping and regurgitation)
    Do not feed cooked bones or very small bones. Both are choking hazards.

    Your pup may take sometime to get used to raw. Be patient; tummy upsets are common in the beginning.

    Regards,
    Raghu

    Congrats! No knowledge of raw feeding either. I'm still too freaked out but one day I want too! Post pics of your new baby!
