A Month of Raw Dinners

It's taken me a few days, but I've finally found the time to share my self-imposed project for July! Aside from Kaylee's missing bowl during the last week, this shows every evening meal my dogs ate for the month of July.

Our raw diet mainly consists of what I call "beefmix" - it contains muscle meat, ground bone, liver, tripe, lung, kidney, vitamins and minerals, and egg. I should also explain the "chicken grind" - it's basically just that. Ground up chickens.



Since the photo is tiny, I also wrote down the elements of each meal. Read on, if you're so inclined. You'll notice that Revy gets pancreas with every meal because she has EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) and needs raw pancreas daily.

As of today, Kaylee will be back on a raw diet. She had to eat canned for for a week to give her mouth time to heal, and while the extraction site isn't completely smooth, she can go back to eating ground raw. Thank goodness - I was getting sick of actually having to pick up poop in the yard!

  1. That's pretty cool! I'm going to do this again when I get my Shiba back on raw. I've got a big stockpile of kibble I need to get through first that I ended up with for various reasons, and pictures of a bowl of kibble aren't very interesting since there is no variety.

  2. What does your beefmix consist of?
