What is a raw meat diet?
A raw meat diet is just that, a diet
fed to dogs that is raw meats, chicken, beef, pork, fish, and/or other proteins.
Some owners choose to add fresh
fruits and veggies, some choose not to add fruits and veggies.
Some owners will add dairy, some don't.
owners will choose to add whole grains to the diet, where others choose not to.
Is it difficult to make and feed?
As I explain to my puppy buyers...feeding
a raw meat diet can be as easy or as hard as you choose to make it!
There are SO many options out there now from
pre-packaged patties that are a 'complete' diet where all you have to do is defrost and feed to Fido to going all out and
mixing and making your own 'diet' for your dog.
You need to do research as you need to make sure the dog is getting a
'balanced' diet, but for the most part, feeding a raw meat diet is very simple!
How expensive is it?
In my opinion feeding
a raw meat diet is really not THAT expensive. On average it costs about $1.50-$3.00 per day per dog (I'm obviously feeding
Chesapeakes). That is CHEAPER than buying a Starbucks drink everyday! The benefits of feeding a raw meat diet
outweigh any 'additional' costs that some might feel they spend compared to most 'grocery store' bought dog kibble.
