- 1 1/2 cups of kibble
- 1/2 lb of raw chicken breast
- 1 egg (shell and all, just crushed it up and mixed it in)
- 1 tsp of garlic powder (safe in small amounts, helps against fleas)
Dakota enjoyed her breakfast so much that when I brought her back from her walk, she went over to where her dish was and licked the floor. No lie.
- 1/2 lb of raw chicken thighs (bone in, skinless)
- 1/2 lb of lamb neck
- drizzle of olive oil
This was Dakota's first entirely raw meal. She looked at it funny for a few seconds and then dove in. This was also the first bone in meal that she has had. The lamb neck took her a few minutes to get through, but this is a good thing. One of the major benefits that people find with feeding a raw diet is the overall health of their dogs teeth. The reason that I gave her skinless chicken, is because she is new to the diet. Sometimes the fat in the skin can upset their bellys a bit. I also intend to continue feeding the oil atleast everyother day, but I will be switching to salmon oil.
I think that I will continue on the 1/2 kibble, 1/2 raw in the morning and the full raw at night until I finish up what I have left of her dry dog food. It should be gone in about a week. So far I have not seen where this switch has upset her stomach at all. One thing I can say is that for the first time since Dakota was about 6 months old (she is now 5 1/2 years old) she is absolutely estatic at meal time. She has the same look on her face as I do when someone brings me something like carrot cake =)
