    I’m looking to start my dog on a raw food diet and have a couple questions.

    #1) I read on http://rawfeddogs.org/rawguide.html that it’s best to start out with chicken. It also says that the meal should be 80% meat, 10% bone and 10% organ. Reading further it says that a chicken is 33% bone. Should I buy some extra chicken breasts to make the ratio work at 10% bone?

    #2) I contacted one of my local butchers and he sells “raw course ground beef scraps” for $0.50/lb. Is this a good thing to feed?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey David,

    Regarding #1, it will do no harm adding more lean meat to have your desire ratio. What parts of the chicken are you planning to feed your dog?

    #2. Ground beef is a good thing, being beef scraps might be a lot of fat content which you might have to balance out with lean meat.
