Hi everyone! I’d appreciate your thoughts on alternating dehydrated food (The Honest Kitchen Beef Recipe) with a homemade nutritionally balanced raw diet.
I have a chihuahua/tibetan spaniel mix that’s 8 month-old and 10 pounds. I rescued him 3 months ago and started out feeding him Taste of the Wild dry food. He was getting cheap/unhealthy supermarket kibble at the shelter. A few weeks ago I switched him over to The Honest Kitchen’s beef dehydrated food realizing it is more species appropriate than kibble and just as convenient. That said, I still think a homemade nutritionally balanced raw diet is the optimal option, but I want my dog to adapt to more than one form of food and make it more manageable from a time investment perspective as feeding raw one meal per day would allow the supply to last much longer.
Any thoughts? Is this a good idea?
Thanks in advance!
If your dog doesn’t have any digestive issues, rotating forms of food should not be an issue. Finding foods/recipes that are nutritionally complete will be the challenge.
Thank you! I am using the following recipe:
1lbs 93% lean ground beef (alternating ground turkey/chicken as well)
2 tsp hemp seed oil
1/2 cod liver oil
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp kelp
1 egg (with shell)
1 ounce beef liver
1 ounce broccoli
1 ounce red bell pepper
1 ounce spinach
