Hello! I am Kathy and I have 2 dogs. Lola is a Jack Russell Terrier who turned 2 on June 1. I started her on partial raw when she was 4 months old. I kept adding more and more raw with less and less kibble until she went all raw at around 6 months old. I did not have any real issues while transitioning her.
Buster is a Toy Fox Terrier who will turn 2 on October 29. I started him on chicken wings and drummies the day I brought him home. He was 8 weeks old and a big 2 lbs! He was able to crunch through bone in about a week. I do still have issues with his poop but otherwise he has done great too. He seems to either have really hard poop or almost liquid poop with only some "normal" poop.
Lola does organ with no problems at all. I feed organ weekly and Lola gets her liver on Monday and her pancreas or kidney on Wednesday. Buster still can't tolerate all his liver in 1 meal so I break it up over 2 days. He can handle all his other organ in 1 meal.
I manage a decent variety for them with deer, beef, pork, and chicken being the bulk of their diet. I try to add in other proteins when I can get them. They get duck, lamb, and fish pretty regularly. I also feed goat, ostrich, and buffalo when I can get it. They get an egg about once per week and right now they are getting duck eggs.
I am able to feed them very cheaply because I have put time and effort into developing some decent sources. I get pork, beef, and lamb meat and organs from an agriculture department at Virginia Tech for anywhere from .25 per lb for trim to $1.95 per lb for heart, kidney, liver, and pancreas. I get beef and pork kidney and heart from a local organic farmer for $1 or so per pound. Plus I get tons of free meat by placing ads on Craiglist, Freecycle, and in local print classifieds.
All of this is due to tremendous support and guidance from a great group of raw feeders on Dog Food Chat. Hopefully the same group will show up here.
