    Since I have small dogs that cannot handle higher fat Raw meat right now I have started out with feeding Raw in the morning and kibble in the evening. Here is what I feed now

    My dogs are 6,6,8,10 lbs. My shihtzu is the only one that requires more food because her metabolism is quite a bit faster than the other 3 Chihuahuas. So she 6lbs and could stand to gain a pound so she gets 1/2 cup of Raw Rabbit with bone and organs in the morning and in the evening we feed Brothers Turkey and Egg and she gets 1/4 cup a day of that and sometimes more if she acts still hungry. The others get 4oz of Raw Rabbit with bone and organs in the morning and 1/8 cup of kibble in the evening. We are going to slowly build up to higher Raw fats but for now we will be on Raw Rabbit for a month and then try young beef and then maybe Raw Turkey. Should I still add a Tsp of Raw sardines with the Raw meal once or twice a week since they are still on kibble too? So far this is working out but I am not holding my breath since its only been three days back on Raw but I hope it works out.

    Please feel free to let me know if I need to change something I thought about adding green beef tripe too.

    PS I am still giving Mercola probiotics and Enzymes and glucosamine tabs and spirugreen.

    Raw ground rabbit bones and organs with spirugreen definitely isn’t a balanced diet on its own, but it will probably be fine as long as you continue to feed at least one meal of kibble daily.

    If you want to make meat organ grinds a larger portion of your dogs’ diet without balancing the meal with whole foods Sandy recently made me aware of a supplement designed to balanced meat/organ/bone only diets, might be worth checking out.

    Nectarmom,

    Can you feed poultry organs like heart and gizzard? I think they are low in fat.

    Thanks HDM! PugMom I will for sure ask Tracy is it ok to feed my crew Poultry heart and organs. We tried to ground Sardines ( 1 TSP) for Omega 3 and 6 and it was not a hit with any of them LOL! One of mine will not touch Rabbit so we might have to try beef or some other lean with her. Why is their always a problem child in the bunch..
