Buying Raw Diet Food – Part 2

Dogs on a raw food diet will face less health problems both in their
present state and in the long run when compared to their kibble fed
(or other dog diets) counterparts.

When buying raw food for dogs, be sure to shop in the right
quantities, which is how much you can store giving your freezer or
refrigerator space. Keep in mind that different dog foods have varying
shelf lives. Fresh vegetables lasts about a week and frozen meats
lasts three to six months in the freezer, depending on the kind of
meat.

If you would like to store vegetables for longer periods of time,
you can create a vegetable slosh in bulk and freeze it in the
portions that you will be feeding your dog.

When feeding puppies, keep in mind that they will need a higher
percentage of protein in their diet compared to fully grown dogs
because they’re at a critical growth stage. Puppies will eat about
four times a day in their  first three months. Afterwards you can
switch to fewer feedings.

Older or fully grown dogs will eat less often than puppies, but if
they are very active, they will need more feedings or a higher
percentage of protein as well. It is important to keep  details
like these  in mind when buying raw food for pets so that you know
how much of each kind of dog food to buy.

For more details like these, a good place to get more information
is from the ebook ‘Going Rawr! Dog Lovers Compendium’ Its author,
Maggie Rhines, shows you exactly how to choose raw food for dogs,
as well as proper methods of storage and preparation. For more

Buying Raw Diet Food – Part 1

Dogs on a raw food diet are naturally healthier, happier, and more
energetic. However, buying raw food for dogs can be a challenge to
some dog owners since there are several considerations to keep in mind.

First, when buying raw diet food for dogs, make sure the food is human
grade food or fit for human consumption. This means it is the
highest quality raw food available. Making sure that everything is
fresh and safe to eat is one of the keys to success when following
the raw food feeding model.

Next, make sure you buy organic fruits and vegetables. Organic
fruits and vegetables are grown without pesticides or insecticides
or any growth enhancers. This means the product is all natural and
good for your dog

Be sure you purchase your meat from a reliable butcher who takes
his product from a farm which does not use growth stimulants for
their livestock. Like fruits and vegetables that are not grown in
an organic manner, meats with growth stimulants is not an ideal
raw food for pets. These stimulants can give your dog health
problems or create unnatural growth in your dog.

The ebook ‘Going Rawr! Dog Lovers Compendium.’, by Maggie

diet and who would like to know more  about how to implement it and
