Always happy to share.
First and foremost that you’ll need to search (in your area) as I know that different areas sell to their local feed/pet food stores/boutique stores, or, what have you.
And it isn’t as confusing now that I did all of my own research.
I spent a lot of time (and money) to get my girl on the right path with her Holistic Vet. I won’t go into details, but her little body was a mess to start. So I started by cooking her food for several months.
When I switched to raw, I thought “omg! What am I doing!? I don’t even eat meat! Am I going to have to figure out ratios and do organ meats and body parts?” But no! You don’t. Not at all.
If you do a search (again, in your specific geographical area) for “Balanced Raw” dog food, or, “Balanced Raw” Pet food, I think you should be able to come up with a few options.
I’m not sure what area you are in and I don’t exactly know what my limitations are (here) yet, so I won’t post any brand names.
But for example, depending on your dogs weight, (and what YOUR VET recommends) you would simply feed the recommended amount twice a day.
I add very few supplements as most are contained within, being that all bones and organ meats are crushed inside the meal itself.
(So you don’t need added calcium for example).
My dog NEVER leaves anything in her bowl and is extremely excited at mealtimes.
I also make sure that I get her more than one protein, so that she can process more than one and I don’t feed each one day after day. So, I do, for example: Turkey, Beef, Duck and Rabbit. So maybe one day I’ll do rabbit and the next I’ll do Turkey and so on. And it can even switch meal to meal.
I have also taken kibble out of my cats diet and they are way healthier since I have removed it. No more diarrhea. (Sorry guys, but it’s true.) Kibble is horrible on cats digestion.
I hope this helps a little bit.
But, If you have any questions, by all means, I’m happy to help. I remember starting off and I had nobody to lean on as all of my friends are non-meat eaters and it seemed to me at the time, that they also didn’t have their dogs on raw.
