I've recently changed my labs food from 'bakers' to attempting the raw food diet :/. I'm finding it really expensive and not sure if they're getting enough? I've just bought james wellbeloved kibble and going to try half meat half biscuit, will this still have the same effect as the raw feeding? I also give them meat bones etc.

Thanks....

Lots if people feed kibble and raw. but its best to feed them in differe.t meals as the raw diges quicker than the kibble so people tend to feed the kibble im the morning and the raw at night.


with raw you taylor it.yo your dog. but in general it ment to be 3 % of their ideal body weight per day.
what raw were you feeding them?

Hi Joanne,

Where are you buying your raw?

As a rough guide it is suggested to feed 1 to 2% of your dogs desired weight.......if they look thin feed more.....if they look heavy then cut back.

Thanks!

I've been buying mince mostly but also chicken & liver or what ever is on offer from the supermarket. I started giving them half a pack of mince each in the morning and again at night. It's working out around 6 per day, is that about right?

Thanks again!

I pay 10 for 15 kilo of raw or cooked mince for Grayshill plus you get free bones with plenty of meat on them......butchers bones have no meat on them as they use it to make sausages with.

Hi

We use Grayshill, we buy some raw and some cooked...it costs next to nothing and saves us a fortune , our dog Tia is better for it, we also give her some raw chicken thighs and cooked fish from Farmfoods for a change.
