Finally napakain ko na ng day bone si dog. I was feeing here cut up chicken or ground beef the last few weeks pero kahapon I fed her chicken breast, bone in. Nung una dinidiladilaan nya lang. Akala siguro kaya ng ganun hahahaha I had to hold it pa para ubusin nya. Otherwise, she picks it up and leaves it somewhere else. Naubos din after 30 minutes.

BTW, I saw flyer ng Rustans Supermarket, Nilaga cut is B1T1 for 209 pesos, Fried chicken cuts 199 pesos. Shopwise naman has B1T1 Shank bone in at 299 and Norwegian Salmon Head B1T1 159. Pwede ba yun sa dog?

^yung mga alaga ko may tigahawak din at ako yun while eating, masyado kasing messy pag iiwan ko sila magisa, wala akong katulong maglinis ;D larger cuts na lang binibigay ko para matagal din ang pagchew.

pwede mga yan sis, kahit anong meat naman pwede as long as malaman. pero yung salmon head and shank bone (kung puro bones lang ito) personally, hindi ko na kukunin kasi wala ng masyadong laman yun, puro bones na lang, sayang lang ang money. Aim for meatier pieces parati para sulit ang gastos ;)

haha kung salmon belly hindi ko ibibigay sa kanila dahil uulamin ko yun hahaha! pero nagbibigay din ako ng raw fish, tamban/sardines, mura lang sya around 70pesos per kilo.

Yung shih tzu ko mas malinis kumain kesa sa bulldog, hindi sya yung basta nguya lang, may paraan sya pano nya mauubos yung isang part na hindi nahuhulog. Nakakatawa kasi pag malapit ng mahulog bigla nyang igagrab ng mabilis para di malaglag. Pero yung bulldog naku parang may pinapakain kang toddler, super kalat! Hinahayaan nya lang mahulog sa floor tapos titignan lang, ako pa pupulot para sa kanya! ;D

^Buti pa yung shih tzu mo sis! Ang galing naman nya. Yung sa youtube, kumakain on top of towel and stays lang sa area na yun. How I wish magawa ng dog ko yun!

My dog barely touches her Orijen kibbles talaga. On days na late na ako for work, I give her kibbles at deadma lang so I put it away. Tapos, pag uwi ko sa gabi and feed her kibbles, ayaw pa din! E for sure hungry na siya, and that's when nilalabas ko na yung raw meat.

^train mo lang sis, feeling ko nasasanay naman sila. ang sabi kasi ganun daw talaga mga wolves, naghahanap ng sariling space while eating, yung iba minsan nagdidig pa then itatago. yung tzu lumalayo din dati pero ngayon tutok na sakin during meal time, sa harap ko na inuubos tapos pag ayaw, ayaw na talaga kahit anong lapit ko ng food sa bibig nya, di nya bubuksan tapos aalis na, yun ang clue ko na busog na sya.

nung nagshift din kami sa raw, parang di na nila kilala ibang food, once offeran ko ng luto, aamuyin muna bago kainin, yung tzu sigurista todo amoy tapos minsan di nya talaga kakainin. pero as time passes by, siguro nacurious na rin at nagsawa sa raw kaya sabik na sabik sila pag ibang food binibigay ko.

sis abu, pag pinakain ko ba ng sardines kelangan tanggalin yung laman loob nung fish? ipapakain din ba ang head and tail? i’ve been feeding her raw chicken for 2 months nya, baka pwede ko n introduce yung fish para mas mejo mura.

pwede ka na sis magintroduce ng new meat lalo pag okay yung stool nya. pakurot-kurot lang muna para di magfireworks ang pwet ;D ako ang inaalis ko lang sa sardines is yung tail at head pero binibigay ko minsan ang head sa bulldog for crunch factor. yung tzu naman ayaw ng head. pero sis wag mo substitute ang fish as her main protein source kasi animal meat ang dapat na staple diet,variety of red meat dapat daw talaga at yung fish and other small animals treat them as side dishes lang. I highly suggest na pork or beef naman ang iintroduce mo this time ;)

Hay nako naiinis ako sa mga stray cats sa amin, last time naggrocery ako ng food nila good for 1 week, mostly chicken, almost 1 kilo of pork kasim and 1/4kilo chicken liver. Paguwi, nilagay ko sa freezer, iniwan ko sa table yung food nila for that day, tapos umakyat ako sandali para kunin yung shih tzu. pagbalik ko sabi ko bat parang may kulang, e di chineck ko pati freezer, wala rin sa loob yung kasim. Chineck ko yung receipt napunch naman, sabi ko baka nakalimutan ilagay ng bagger? haha! Binalak ko pa bumalik ng grocery kinabukasan para magreklamo pero tinamad nako. Tapos after 2 days, sabi ng tito ko "may binili ka bang baboy? may baboy sa bodega nakaplastic pa, tinangay ata ng pusa!" leche sarap nila katayin! tapos minsan naman nakakaiwan ako ng chicken and liver sa kitchen sink, nakakalimutan ko ilagay sa freezer tapos madadatnan nila kinabukasan nangangamoy at sira na :( Hay ang hirap maging single-mother hahaha!

Lately, pork naman binibigay ko sa mga alaga ko at di ko inexpect na magugustuhan nila to ng ganito katindi. Ngasab kung ngasab yung bulldog tapos yung tzu, ayaw na ng chicken! Pag chicken binibigay ko ayaw kainin, pero pag pork na ang bilis sunggaban! Lumalaki lalo ang gastos dahil mas mahal ang pork. Pero sige na nga kung ikakabuti naman nila ay bulag, pipi at bingi akong ipapamimili sila every week ;D

haha! yung nga din sis kaya di ako matuloy tuloy sa raw feeding dahil sa magastos. Ginagawa ko na lang every other day one meal nya is raw. Di pako ready sa puro raw baka di na sya kumain ng kibbles talaga eh mahirapan ako hehe.
Pansin ko din sa pet ko dati chicken lang sya tapos nung nakatikim ng pork, everytime na naghihiwa ako ng pork para lutuin kahit natutulog sya or nasa kwarto sya na pagkalayo layo sa kitchen naku sagsag na yun pag naamoy. naaadik talaga sya tapos parang nahahyper sya pag nakakain ng pork  :D

ako naman nasanay na rin sa gastos kasi matagal-tagal na rin sakin mga to, sa kanila talaga nauubos pera ko haha! pero mas gusto ko pag raw kasi okay lang kahit for 1 week lang ang budget, mas mura kesa noon na may kibbles which costs 2250-2500 per month, tapos iba pa yung gastos sa homecooked meals. tingin ko frankenprey talaga ang dapat para medyo makamura since halo-halo naman yung meat.

last sunday pala nakakuha ako ng pork meat and organs kasi may meat supplier malapit samin. ang saya mamili kasi fresh from slaughterhouse at ang daming parts na pagpipilian, gusto ko sana mamakyaw pero pinigilan ko sarili ko haha! minsan din kasi napagkakamalan na ulam, baka magulat na lang ako ubos na stock namin ;D

^lumalambot din minsan poop ng mga alaga ko, pero bumabalik din sa normal after 1 or 2 days, minsan sa next poop lang okay na. minsan dahil lang sa stress or weather, or pag medyo nagiba ang ihip ng tiyan ;D parang tayo rin. pwede rin naman na worms, basta observe nyo lang kung magtutuloy or maging diarrhea (non-stop, di macontrol at liquid na) pero kung once or twice then balik sa normal, normal lang yan sa raw feeding. offer ka na lang ng pork pag consistent na firm ang stool nya.

nagkaganyan din mga alaga ko, minsan yung yellow vomit pa. pero ang nabasa ko kasi sa raw feeding sites, normal lang sya sa umpisa since di pa ganon kaacidic ang tummy nila. Actually more acidic sila than us, pero pag nagraw kasi kailangan mas acidic para mas maprocess mabuti yung raw meat. So during the first few months, parang under training ang tummy to be more acidic that's why nagsusuka sila. Pwede rin na since nasanay sa kibbles na mas matagal bago nadigest, naninibago sa digestion period ng raw since mas mabilis to madigest, kaya ayun nagsusuka. Observe mo rin closely kung chinechew nya mabuti yung food, yung undigested bones it doesnt necessairly mean na bumara sa lalamunan, pwedeng di lang ganon nanguya at naexcite kaya nilunok kaagad that's why nung nagthrow up andun pa rin. Ilang meals sya in a day and gano karami yung binibigay mo?

why not store-bought dog food (in dry form) over raw food? which is better anyway for overall nutrition and for pregnant bitches?
I'm just a bit confuse, because vets always prescribe dry dog food for controlled nutrition. they are animal doctors so they are supposed to know better.

I am not an expert so it is best if answers will come from raw feeder groups/sites. I provided some helpful links, you can always go back and read more about raw feeding. You can also visit the Best Dry Dog Food thread for more links. After reading, you will be able to answer your questions ;)

yes vets are animal doctors but unfortunately, doggie nutrition is not a major subject in veterinary medicine ;D and most information comes from dog food companies that's why most of their knowledge and recommendations (on canine nutrition) depends on dry or canned dogfood. Some even get incentives for selling their products (examples are: Science Diet, Hills, Royal Canin)

Yes vets are there to help us but it doesn't mean that we have to believe in everything that they say. As pet owners, we also have a responsibility to do our homework to provide the best for our beloved pets. There are lots of articles and sites about dog nutrition nowadays, all we need is a little research. And always keep in mind that if there are good vets, there would always be incompetent ones ;)
