Hi I joined this forum because I have been researching raw diets for awhile now. I have found a lot of information out there about this and it can all be quite confusing. I have found this site extremely helpful. I first started researching after my pup Rocky (9 month GSD/Hound) lost interest in his kibble. I tried multiple brands and flavors and after three days he just lost interest in it. He also throws up a lot and after doing some research and a trip to the vet I believe its because his system does not like kibble. I worried about his health especially since he is still growing and this led me to looking into other foods, which led me to raw! lol
While doing my research I found that most places I find say to get the meat from a butcher. Is it ok to get meat from my local grocery store? We don't really have butchers around here and the closet one is a good hour drive so it would be easier if I could buy from the local store.
Also about how much should I start out feeding Rocky? He weighs about 50lbs right now and I am kind of confused about the percentage to feed him(I suck at math). I also currently give him about 2 eggs a week, with his kibble is it ok to continue with this or should I stop? We are also in training right now so should I use a different kind of treat as a reward so the transition is a complete one and if so what should I use instead?
I am hoping to make the switch next week after pay day and I get the meat so will be posting about that then! I am excited to take this step to a better life for my boy and since I love to show him off here is a picture of him(hopefully it will show up lol)
