Hello all. I’m the main content creator at Holistic Pet Radio. We started out as a podcast and have since begun making YouTube videos geared towards newcomers to the raw feeding movement. Our first video is all about how to choose a commercially prepared raw food. I run through some questions to ask, such as did the animals have access to the outdoors (in relation to Vitamin D deficiency concerns).
I am hoping to get some feedback from some experienced raw feeders on our content and suggestions for things you would like to see us address. Any input is welcome! Thank you!
When I used to feed my dog raw I would call and ask the company if their supply chain and production process have been reviewed by the FDA to earn the Human Grade distinction. Human Grade means ‘food grade’, ‘edible’, or fit for human consumption.
But none did. So I opted out.
I buy strictly from Hare Today which is NOT for human consumption as humans dont eat bone.
I used to order from them but the ground bone caused major constipation issues for my dog. So I turned to powder calcium supplements. My dog is just one of those dogs who has issues digesting ground bones
how are they ensuring that the diet meets nutrient requirements. ie feeding trial, NRC etc. Vitamin D as an example, dogs cannot produce vitamin D in the skin and must rely on their diet for adequate intake..
Cannoli: I had a dog who had constipation; I solved it by using less bone in and adding boneless meats.
