I recommend feeding a variety for optimal health. I advise to purchase 1 of each flavour, or 2 at the very least, and rotate through each protein on a daily basis for optimal health.
Dogs should be ingesting only 10% veg and 90% raw meat in their daily diet. Steam or roast veggies in the beginning of each week then add 1/4 cup to each meal for large dogs and 1/4 cup daily for small dogs. (Yams, squash, zucchini, , pumpkin, string beans, beets, carrots, Swiss chard, potatoes, or steamed spinach are some great options. Most fruits except grapes and citrus fruits are a fantastic source of fibre and vitamins as well! DO NOT FEED THE VEGGIES RAW. They’re not dangerous given raw, but more so uncomfortable. Raw veggies are hard on their system and tough to digest. Toxic: Onions, garlic, grapes, nuts, and tomatoes.
Dog’s Choice: 40 pound boxes Straight meat, no fruit or veggie inclusion. *Prices include GST*
When you feed a raw food diet you cannot feed kibble! Kibble will sit on top of the stomach and create some scary bacteria. They digest at two different times! Please do not feed one meal raw and one meal of kibble, even though they will not be in the stomach at the same time, as it is incredibly hard on the dog’s system to go back-and-forth from processed food to digestible raw meat.
Do not cook the raw meat! Not only is the bone inclusion, found in the chicken diet, dangerous, as it becomes sharp when heated at a high temperature and could do some damage to your dog internally. But you also diminish the nutrients when you cook the meat.
Treats: “Puppy Love” treats are sold at most natural pet food stores such as Pet Planet. These are single ingredient treats that are strictly only dried meat. You may see a tummy upset if you give processed biscuits as treats. “Orijin” also has some single ingredient treats, that are freeze dried, if you’re looking for a softer treat. (Also sold at Pet Planet).
