    Default Need help with 1st time feeding raw!

    Im buying 80/10/10 raw frozen meat, but before i feed him i got some questions. Should i mix in some vegetables for him when i feed him. Should i thaw out the meat or give it to him frozen.
    I was thinking give him fresh raw meat once a week (chicken meat, feet/neck..etc) is that ok?
    And what else i need to do? Thank you!

    I tagged a few member for you.

    I feed raw, but buy it premade. I feed it thawed and it does have fruits/veggies in the mix with some oats.

    You donít necessarily need to mix in veggies but you can and you might need to. I also get an 80/10/10 premade mix and Louie recently started getting dry and crumbly poop which is an indication of too much bone. So I bought some Green Juju to mix in. He also gets some commercial brands that have veggies in them and heís fine. My Frenchie is fine on the 80/10/10 so it will just depend on your dog. Youíll be able to tell a lot by their poop.

    I just bought this 30 lbs frozenbeef fatty raw 80/10/10. I'm letting it thaw out outside, then break it down n put them in a ziplock bag . My question is does it causes bacteria while being thaw outside? Thanks

    Just keep an eye on poop. If poop becomes dry and crumbly, youíll want to add veggies.

    You should only let it slightly thaw in the fridge, just enough so you can cut it and then refreeze it. Or if it doesn't fit in your fridge , cut it frozen with a power saw. Don't let it thaw out outside.

    You can serve it every day of week, hopefully rotate between 3 different proteins. It's a good idea to give him some vegetables too, preferably steamed, if you don't buy the mix that includes vegetables you can give steamed green beans, because it's filling, but I also give canned pumpkin ( not the pie filling one ) . Other vegetables are good too, just not onions. I like to thaw out individual servings that I put in zip lock bags, 24 hr in advance in the fridge . It can be served frozen too but my dog tends to throw up raw food so I think it helps a little to serve it thawed.It's always a good idea to thaw slowly at fridge temperature. I also like to microwave a little bit of water and add that to the raw food in her bowl to warm it up a bit and give her a little extra moisture in her diet and it also mixes up the other stuff I add ( organic turmeric, hempseed oil or flax seed oil, fish oil, Actiflex 4000, sea kelp ). The sea kelp is like a multivitamin if you only serve straight 80/10/10 meat. eg. https://www.amazon.com/Organic-KELP-...ct_top?ie=UTF8

    You can give it frozen as I personally find it safer only “IF” there would be a bacteria or something else. Bare in mind raw dogs has “less” bacteria than the human’s meat. My brindle Nyala as she gets older she does like frozen. Like a texture thing for her. But raw or frozen is fine. I would do only one day thawed out n that’s it. I wouldn’t leave raw dog food 2-3 days in a fridge. I work in the food industry n inspected on regular basis.

    Fruits n veggies I like to have control of it. I find adding fruits n veggies already in the raw , to me it’s like a filler n companies make more money by doing that. Anyway I don’t my my dogs eating too much of plant base products by more protein on the meat side.
