New here and have a question:
I have been raw feeding my 11ish month old pup for about a week now. I stopped feeding her kibble and dove straight into it. In fact, I completely missed the recommendation that one waits months before introducing organ meat (went straight to the butcher). I also missed the recommendation that one only adds one protein at a time.
Right now she is eating whole beef chunks as her main meat. she sometimes gets heart, green tripe and lung along with it. She also gets chicken bone in (but ground up with a meat grinder). I also giver her ground up (bone in) east coast salmon or mackerel every day (easily accessible). For organs she gets liver and kidneys and whatever else is in my "assorted" freezer bag. I tried giving her deer meat. she ate it but did not really like it.
I am sticking to the percentages recomended by Prey model, but have yet to buy a scale so it is only approximate.
Her poops are a little soft with a slimy texture (maybe not enough bone?), but mostly fine. not quite as solid as it should be. she is going once every 24-28 hours and she used to go 2-3 times per day.
Her energy levels seem the same (if not better) and her muscles are thickening (or seem to be... she is too heavy to pick up... she was only 30ish pounds before this lol)
My question is, since everything seems fine, can I still feed her the organs and such? She used to get frozen liver as treats and raw meaty beef bones also (on a weekly basis). Could she possibly be accustomed to the food already? her kibble was a pretty good one for kibble too... so maybe that helps?
