I feed my dogs Native.

Jaws when I was growing up the family dogs ate rice and hamburger as their main food. My mom would add tomato and green beans if she had them and also lard once a week. Onyx lived to be 25yrs old, Chico lived to 20yrs and Yenta lived to be 21 she dies of stomach cancer. So I would say that some rice for your pup is fine.

It actually worked, he now eats slower like a normal dog. I guess I dont need to feed him that then. I really do want to try to stick with a more raw based diet just for his health. But it can be expensive. I got him a brand called Instinct yesterday. It is grain free, beef. I payed 4.99 for 12 little meat circles. According to his weight size he should get 14 a day. I was just trying to find a way to spread it out a little. You say to feed it 12 hrs apart? I could always feed him his puppy food in the morning and his raw a night?
I mean veggies and rice isn't going to kill a dog but I'm just saying its not necessary to feed them either if its working for you then thats great. As far as instinct goes if you buy the premade raw stuff it is way over priced. I shop at my local grocery store and get a 3 pack of chicken quaters for $ 2.50 , a four pk of backs for the same , turkey necks are a little higher priced as well as beef but all the chicken parts are dirt cheap. However when a dog eats raw you need a variety of meats and organs but the majority of her diet is chicken. And yes you could always feed kibble in the a.m. and raw at night. I spend about 60 to 70 dollars a month to stock up the dogs freezer chest and it has chicken, pork, beef, and turkey at all times as well as organs

In the wild dog will get veggies from the stomach of the animals they eat, so when feeding raw many people mix in small amount of vegetables to act for what would be in the stomach. However the diet should be mainly raw. Rice is just a filler and not necessary.

I feed on a half and half diet 3 days they get kibble which is TOTW when I am working them heavily they get High Prairie or Wetlands and on normal workout Pacific Stream. I fast a day then they will have Prey Model Raw for 3 days and fast again. Then just rinse and repeat this seems to be the most cost effective since we don't have an actual butcher. That's just for where I live if we had a butcher to where I could buy like a side of lamb or something I so would just be feeding raw. My dogs mostly get Beef since there's not much selection chicken liver and beef heart for their organ meat.

Recently switched my girl from Royal Canin. Now feeding Acana Grain Free Dry Dog Food, but I mix it with some of the ZiwiPeak canned venison. For training, I use the ZiwiPeak Good Dog venison treats. We order smoked bones from Venison Joe's...specifically the 12" Elk Humerus. Love these bones because they don't splinter and they are huge!

im still on TotW, i went to my feed store today. they dont have Acana like i wanted but they did have Orijen i cant afford $75 though. she said they could prolly order Acana since Champion makes them both. but Odin needed food now and that could take 2-4 weeks to order it in. *sigh* ill figure it out tho....

LMAO! If I didn't know any better, I'd wonder how my GF got on GP. LOL!


Odin, there are some websites that deliver and charge less then most pet stores. You should look into it.

I updated my pups food now to getting raw chicken. He is spoiled and I got him the healthy chicken that is hormone free. I wanted to get fish, but my local store didn't really have the kind of fish that I wanted. XD
