My Dogs stopped eating Raw Meat
My dogs had been on a Raw diet for about 3 months, I was going to a butcher every Saturday and spening about $40 on Ribs, Neckbones and even the large roasts etc. These are cuts that humans eat they are mostly meat.
They would tear into them no problem. Then they both just stopped eating it. I would come home to find the meat completely untouched.
So now I am back to the beginning with them mixing 1 raw pattie from a pet store with 1 scoop of their organic dry.
Has this happened to anyone else?
RE: My Dogs stopped eating Raw Meat
I would like to offer you some ideas to think about. One yahoo has a group called RAWMEATYBONES that has been very helpful in our path of going all raw with our dogs. Here is the website for them.
Two, Ron Londsdale has two books that I know of out that are very helpful and is supported by the raw meaty bone group listed above.
You want to have roughly 80% muscle meat, 10% each of bones and organ meat. You can tell if the amount is right for your dog by what the stools look like. Too runny add more bone, too hard add more organ meat.
This group really helped me with our dog Mocha who had insulinoma cancer. Although cancer took her life she ate like a queen for the last 6 months of her life and the changes were amazing. She was a short haired mix that we lovingly called a rotten boxer. Her hair became much softer, her teeth became sparkling white, and her breath got sweeter.
I hope this helps you. It took a bit to get us used to the idea of crunching bones but now it is music to our ears.
I will try to check back in here next week to see if you have any questions aimed my way or if I can be of any other help. Good luck and as always with any information please do further research.
