Reasons to Switch to a Raw Dog Food Diet
Welcome!! My name is Lauri and I will be your guide around the Raw Dog Ranch. I created this website to help others learn all about a raw diet for dogs.I did so partly because I was not yet ready to trust that bones were suitable foodstuffs for dogs, and because it was most like the comfortable ‘nutritionally complete’ kibbles I had now sworn off of. But nobody had yet shown me how to make raw dog food.Sometimes referred to as BARF (Bones and Raw Food), Raw, Raw Diet, SARD (Species Appropriate Raw Diet) and other names it's all the same concept - you are feeding your dog a NATURAL diet consisting of raw meat and bones (yes, raw BONES) with minimal (I prefer none) grains and carbohydrates.Puppies
In the wild, when puppies reach 4-5 weeks of age, the mother dog will naturally begin to regurgitate some of her raw foods for her puppies to consume. Thus, when domestically reared puppies reach approximately 4-5 weeks of age, you can begin introducing them to Primal Canine Formulas. Puppies should be fed one to two small (1-2 teaspoons) raw-food meals daily in conjunction with either the milk they consume from nursing and/or other foods you may be supplementing. Puppies should always be fed from separate bowls, as competitive feeding can promote overeating and indigestion. Gradually increase the quantity of Primal Canine Formulas foods every 2-3 days until 8 weeks of age, when the puppies are consuming two tablespoons of Primal Canine Formulas twice daily. At this point (8 weeks), the puppies should be fully weaned and can be fed a diet solely of Primal Canine Formulas and raw meaty bones. Puppies 8 weeks of age and older should be fed approximately 4-8% of their body weight daily in Primal Canine Formulas. Factors such as breed, overall health and level of activity play a part in the necessary feeding quantities of all puppies. Please be sure to monitor your puppy's dietary needs and adjust the feeding quantities accordingly.
