Can i use Raw food diet for my dog?

RAW FOOD DIET well ye thats what it says ITS WONDERFUL ! any one using raw food diet ? cuz on my own experience guys i changed my pup 8 month old GSD to raw food diet 3weeks ago. she is Healthy as a Horse totally high energy levels WHITE teeth i mean ye totally white at nights no one can see her expect her teeth :D and glowing coat . im just saying this cuz im stunned by the results she was doing alright on kibble ROYAL canin but she had lost her appetite and was falling sick atleast twice a month with motions or fever and her energy levels were moderate . one thing i hated was i had to give some raw hide bones to clean her plaque build up in her teeth which no one will disagree. with the help of lots of friends and tons of research online and few good suggestions from guys here especially DOGGIESDUD(anil) thank you man ) ive switched her on raw food she is now chicken quarters and some organ and best thing about it no more pocket holes for supplements and costly kibble which was costing me a small fortune i used to spend almost 4500rs on her food and supplements a month. I STRONGLY Recommend RAW FOOD DIET for your pets im not promoting any brands expect for chicken LOL. try it see the results and get stunned ill upload some pics in a day to show results :D

As a breeder I feed my rotts "BARF" without any blood. Again, it doesn't mean dogs should only be feed BARF as some may not like the idea. Carnivores digestive system is designed for BARF food.

NOT BOILED no nutrients will be left if you boil the meat you can feed a variety meat chicken lamb beef pork quail rabbit and stuff its easy to start with chicken quarters. items which are not for humans are edible for dogs such as tripe chicken heads feet and stuff.you have to freeze the meat before you feed it atleast 1 day so that there will be no bacteria in the meat and then just feed it to the dog. how much to feed depends on your dog his activity based on his expected adult weight you can feed him 2 to 3% of that right now im feeding my bitch 2% expected adult weight is 30Kg's. dogs evolved by eating the human left overs animal scarps even sometimes feces to survive . advantages of raw food feeding
1. Small firm stool and odour less
2. no doggy breath or smell instead of that healthy dog breath smell
3. no more scratching or itching or hot spots no more allergies.
4. White teeth so white you can send them to colgate add :D
5. beautiful and shiny coat
6. bright eyes
7. more energetic dogs
8. most important thing less or no vists to vets :d saves tons of vet bills

1. consumes time in preparing the diet which is not big price considering your pet's health
2. might be abit costly not costly than kibble for sure

Many people believe raw food is better for dogs than commercially prepared dog food, though others believe dogs fed raw food are at risk for bacterial diseases and parasites.

In India most butcher shops/slaughter house are in very poor condition. Those parts of animals slaughtered in the normal way which were not presented for post mortem and anti mortem inspection.

Meat bought at supermarkets may be contaminated with bacteria and parasites, which domesticated dogs, may be less immune to than wild dogs. Also, some believe the digestive systems of pet dogs have developed differently than that of wild dogs. Raw diets can also be expensive and require a lot of preparation.

Raw food is not a complete balanced food for your pets.

For an individual or a family, selecting a pet food is an important step, second only to deciding the type of animal that best fits their personality and lifestyle.

Once the decision has been made, the pet’s food may well have the single greatest impact on their health, overall well-being and ultimately the pet owner’s peace of mind.

A well balance quality food, like GENESIS ULTRA PREMIUM Pet Food, is designed to build strong muscles and skeletal framework. This supports the proper functioning of all the internal organs and helps maintain an effective immune system that will positively impact the pet’s long-term health status.

GENESIS ULTRA PREMIUM Life Enhancement Formula pet foods are available in www.petfoodsindia.com

The British veterinary group declares that "there is no scientific evidence base to support the feeding of raw meat and bones," and warns humans they risk exposing themselves to bacteria like Salmonella&E coli.

Jeffrey T. LeJeune, a veterinarian and assistant professor in the Food Animal Health Research Program at Ohio State University. LeJeune wrote a 2001 paper in the Journal of the American Veterinary Association, "Public Health Concerns Associated with Feeding Raw Meat to Dogs," which cautioned vets to "not recommend the feeding of raw meat to dogs."

While the intense heat used in manufacturing pet food destroys any potential bacteria, raw meats may contain bacteria that are unsafe for both Dogs and cats.

Genesis meat based petfood.

First of all we would like to point out that the meat content does not determine the quality of the food, although this is a wide spread belief. For logical reasons a food with a high crude protein content has a higher meat content since protein used in pet food mainly originates from animals. The higher the protein content, the higher the meat content. But even at an equal protein content the meat content does not indicate the actual quality of the food. Meat is not just meat. There is high fat meat, low fat meat, meat rich in bone, ...

To reach an equal protein content, e.g. the amount of high fat meat has to be increased, since it has an automatically lower protein content. Vice versa, you automatically need less of a low-fat meat, since it contains less fat and more protein.

When comparing pet foods you also need to consider that there are more sources of animal protein (for example: whole eggs, chicken meal, fish meal, etc.) which also have a significant part in protein (or, even better, amino acid) supply for the pets. The meat content has to be reduced to the extent that those animal proteins are used to not run the risk of surplus protein supply. Especially for dogs, a surplus protein supply has to be avoided.

The meat content also depends on the recipe and on the protein content of other components. For example, if a food has a lot of low-protein components (e.g. grain meals), the content of animal proteins has to be automatically increased, since there needs to be a balance with other protein sources. Those few examples illustrate that the meat content is not a proper way to measure the quality of the food.

Carbohydrates used in dog foods generally include the starchy portion of a plant that can be easily broken down in the digestive tract of the dog. Soluble carbohydrates are found in high concentrations in cereal grains such as rice, barley, and oats. The cooked or extruded forms of carbohydrates found in most pet foods are easily and rapidly digested.

NO RICE dogs cant digest rice how much to feed raw food depends up on how active the dog is the age and stuff lets break it down like this whats the ideal weight of a rottwieler when its grown up lets just take an example .
Let me illustrate this with a hypothetical 100-pound dog (for easy math.) A dog that would ideally weigh 100 pounds as an adult. 2% of that is 2 pounds of food per day.

So when that pup is is 12 weeks old and weighs 20 pounds, 2 pounds of food represents 10% of his body weight.

When he's 6 months old, and 40 pounds, 2 pounds of food is now 5% of his weight.

When he's 80 pounds, 2 pounds of food is under 3% of his weight.

As the dog gets bigger, the meal size, as a percent of body weight, is gradually reduced. There's no math to do, and no big "change" in the size of meals.

The caveat with this--as with any meal size--is to adjust based on the actual dog in front of you. If he's fat, feed less. If he's too thin, add a little more. A dog may need adjustment during a growth spurt, or when they are more active/less active.

A breed standard female GSD will end up weighing roughly 60 pounds (although there is a wide variation--you can probably get an idea of her ultimate weight based on the size of the parents, or by asking the breeder.)

2% of 60 pounds is 19.2 ounces. (60 x 16 x 2%) divide that into the number of meals per day. So, in your case 9.6 ounces per meal.

You should be able to introduce organ mean any time. Just start with a tiny bit at first--a hunk of liver the size of your thumbnail. If that is tolerated you can then gradually increase the organ meat.

I have started feeding Taste of the Wild (http://tasteofthewildpetfood. com) to my dogs. I used to feed Hills. I can see a tremendous difference. I buy from 'Man's Best Friend' in bangalore. Phone: 8050005577. I think they have a web site also. try http://www.mansbestfriend.co.i n . The big bag 30lbs costs me 5300 (this is still cheaper than Hills). He offers discounts if you buy in bulk. Taste os the wild is approved by whole dog journal. I downloaded the whole dog 2011 list from the following link
http://www.farmdogsusa.com/upl oads/2/8/2/7/2827144/wdj_2011_ best_dry_foods.pdf . Taste of wild is listed under Diamond pet products. As of now it think it is the only wdj approved food in india. lets hope they keep up supplies.

I gave my lab(Male) Royal canin starters for about 5 months,gave Lab junior for another 5 months,all required costly supplements(Calcium,vitamins,o mega 3,live52 )..though noticed that he is loosing his fur shinning,dental shine and started scratching.Once diagnoed,it was the case of allergey.I didn't feed any food except Royal canin and some vegetables.On a suggestion,read few artciles,and a book on raw feeding written by very famous vetenarian"Londsale"..guess writing his name correctly..:0, and slowly shifted my lab on Raw food(mostly whole chicken daily,with feets,liver,heard(offals)once a weak.The results after 20 days are tremendous.His teeths have started shinning,skin allergy is almost gone and has become more energetic.

Method of my Raw diet:-

Breakfast:- Two big pieces of raw chicken(For proteins,calciums and other minerals)
Linch:-Two boiled potatos with two spoon curd (For essential carbohyderates and enzymes requirements).Occassionaly add some seasonal vegetables.
Dinner:-Two big pieces of Raw chicken.

Supplements:-Add two spoons Sunflower oil in his diet morning and evening for omega fatty acids.

Precautions:-I deep freeze chicken post cleaning with water for about 18 hours before feeding him.This is to avoid any bacterial infection which can occur due to poulteray based products.

I understand that our dogs digestive system is made to digest chickes(meat products)raw and its better than costly food available over the counter.

I do fast him atleast twice a month and provide plenty of water to clean him for any possible toxins available in the system.

Cost(though)never counted,but has reduced drastically,supplements cost reducedto almost nil.

I would suggest readers,if they want their pets to be happy,shift to raw food,but do research before shifting to any food for the sake of their own family friends.

Great...Igot help from Anil and so decided to do some research on google on Raw diets. If we look at west,most of the kgood kennels also recommend and feed raw diets to their pets. It looks feeding kibbles is the easiest way to feed a pet however its more easier and healthier to feed Raw diets.
