Hello!

New members here. :) but not entirely new to raw feeding. I work with dogs and I see how their diet effects them. The ones on raw are so healthy and pretty! I feed my 3 pomeranians (20lbs, 10lbs and 9lbs) and 4 cats raw. I get my food from my coworker. It's a mix, mostly chicken, but also has different parts beef, turkey, fish, and also eggs. It seems to be a good quality food even though it's ground. I wonder if I could feed them better? Also I may be moving and hour away and won't be able to get the food from the same place anymore.
After reading some other topics on here I thought about my dogs poo and it seems pretty dry. Which I see is to much bone? I have given my dogs chicken wings and legs before, which they did great with. No upset tummies!
So my question is since my dogs are used to raw food and I want to start giving them differant things, where does everyone suggest I start? Thanks for reading! :) I have questions about my cats, so I will make a separate post in the morning! :D

Welcome! Great to have you! For your size dogs, I would start with bone in chicken like wings or necks. If poops seem a little to dry, you can alternate bone in and boneless meals. After a bone in meal, make the next boneless, with chicken breast strips. 

 

There is a really good getting started guide at the top of the page as well, which is very helpful also.

Thank you! 8D I did read the getting started page, but since my doggies were already eating raw, I wasn't sure if I should start the same way. I can do the bone in wings or necks and boneless first. They are going to love this and be so happy! :)

We recommend to start with the getting started guide even if they eat raw already, but since your pups are already eating raw, you should be able to go through the process faster than a dog who is coming from kibble. My boys had eaten raw meat before quite regularly, and they handled the transition well, so we were able to go through the process pretty quickly. :)

Welcome and keep us posted on the progress!

Ok. That makes sense! Thank you! It will be a little while before I start. I think I will after the move and they can keep eating what I have until then. Thanks again. I will be back with their progress! :)

Hi, so I started my dogs on wings. They have been doing great! Hopefully I can get pictures and figure out how to upload them. :)
