Raw Feeding / Re: Feeding A New (Maybe) Dog Raw

What protein would you suggest I start with?  What one is known to be the least problematic?  :)

You're welcome. I think I'd probably try some form of poultry first. It's easier to digest. I'd probably go with turkey or duck before chicken though. Then work up to pork, and red meats after that.

Thanks, DeeDee.  That must have been how I did it.  I DO have a memory... who would have guessed!   Silly7

It's not like switching from one kibble to another kibble. Generally everyone just goes cold turkey on the kibble and straight to raw. However, when Vlad was coming to us, and I was transitioning 1-yr old Barkly, I started with one meat and fed that for a couple of weeks. Then every week added another type of meat until he was eating all of them.

I wanted to make sure that none of them were going to cause him gastric issues since he was new to it, so I did it one at a time. I didn't have to do that with Vlad b/c he had already tried all the meats by the time I got him. Barkly wasn't like a cat and had to be tricked into eating raw. He ate it right out of the chute. It was kibble that I'd had a year of eating hit-or-miss with Barkly.

Raw Feeding / Feeding A New (Maybe) Dog Raw
« Last post by Lola on February 22, 2018, 10:49:43 PM »
We are likely going to be adding a new dog (Misa) to our family fairly soon.  Misa is approx. 4 years old.  She was rescued from the streets. 
Misa is currently fed kibble.  Not that there is a "good" kibble, but her rescue mom says she is feeding "cheap" kibble.  She currently has 13 rescues.

Misa is fed two times a day.

It has been so long since I have transitioned a dog to raw, I can't remember how I did it.  I think I just fed the last meal of kibble...and then the next meal was raw. 

I say "maybe" Misa will be joining the family, because we still have to pass the home check.  I don't expect to fail it, but... 

Any suggestions?

If it matters any... our furkids eat all their raw meals right from the refrigerator...completely thawed.

I found the info about the zoonotic diseases kind of interesting. If I ever get flu again, I'm going to find a way to keep them away from my face.
