The Bones and Raw Food or Biologicallly Appropriate Raw Food (BARF) diet has become very popular over the last few years. The diet consists of 60 percent raw meaty bones and 40 percent raw fruits and vegetables. A raw diet for dogs includes raw chicken and turkey (and the bones), liver, kidney, heart, brain, touge, and tripe. Raw pureed vegetables, fresh and dried fruits, vegetable oil, brewer's yeast, kelp apple cider vinegar, and raw honey are also included in a raw diet.

Although the Biologicallly Appropriate Raw Food (BARF) diet is popular with dog owners many veterinarians aren't so enthusiastic about it. Raw meat and poultry carries the risk of E. coli and salmonella poisoning (Which can kill your ass). Before you decide to feed your dog a raw diet, do some research, and talk to other dog owners who feed their dogs a raw diet to learn more about it, including safe handling techniques. Also talk to your VET.

I know your question was "how would i go about getting my pup on a raw diet?" But I just wanted to give you a few info on a raw diet, in my opinion I would put my dog on a Homecooked Diet rather than a Raw Diet. Anyway talk to your Vet and other responisble dog owners who has their dog on a Raw Diet. With the raw chicken and turkey (and the bones) make sure you dont use knifes from your kitchen or any kitchenware that cause E. COLI, WHAT CAN KILL YOU.

so basically the homecooked diet is feeding the dog people food? would a homecooked or raw diet be better for them as apposed to dog food? also i hear alot of people give their dog half hard and half soft dog food. what does that do for the dog?

Many people like to make their own dog food becuase they think it's healthier than what they can buy commercially. One adventage to cooking your own canine dog food is that you know exactly what your dog is eating, and you can provide the highest quality protein, fruit, fresh-cooked vegetables, and grains. If you like to plan means, shop, and cook and if you take pride in feeding your dog, making your own food can be mutually beneficial to your APBT. You should have two animal proteins, a fat source, carbohydrates, and the right amount of minerals, water, and vitamins.

"so basically the homecooked diet is feeding the dog people food?" No and Yes, buying food for you and your dog is wrong, buy separate food. Example: "I go out an buy 1 non-season turkey, which is for me and my dog, well I add season on the turkey because I don't want it all plain." That is a bad Ideal giving your dog a some turkey is good, but giving him a turkey with season on it can upset your dog, or make him really sick. So never feed your dog table scraps, and make sure the food is plain when you buy it out the stores. Also make sure you give your dog two animal proteins, a fat source, carbohydrates, and the right amount of minerals, water and vitamins.

"would a homecooked or raw diet be better for them as apposed to dog food?" Yes it can depending on how you perpare it and if you add all the things I told you too. Canines were never meant to eat kibble (dog food).

"also i hear alot of people give their dog half hard and half soft dog food. what does that do for the dog?" It depends Canned food contains some meat and vegtable ingredients, but it mostly contains water. Therefore, it takes more canned food to obtain the same amount of nutrition available im kibble. Canned food is also more expensive than kibble. There is no crunch factor in canned food, either, and APBT's like to chew their food. The best way to use canned food is to mix a few tablespoons (ml) of it with dry food. So it is O.K. to mix Canned Food and Dry Food together but use more dry food then canned food.

If you want to go into this raw diet thing you have to read everything you can get your hands on. You have to make sure that the calcium and phospherous ratios are maintained. The chicken wings, legs and neck have the best ratio. I have a really good book that has recipes included it is Dr. Pitchards Natural Health for Dogs and Cats.

Chalice is on part raw part cooked. She gets wings and legs cooked brown rice, green beans (raw) cooked potatoe, squash, beets, tomatoes, raw carrots. then cottage cheese and organic yougart.

"With the raw chicken and turkey (and the bones) make sure you dont use knifes from your kitchen or any kitchenware that cause E. COLI, WHAT CAN KILL YOU." That is what dish soap is all about.

Roughly 2% of his boy weight, so around 1.7 bs/ day. Monitor his weight and if he needs more, give more.
