Alright, hi and thank you for reading this because I NEED HELP. I have a 13mo old Pitbull/ Shepherd (a Pitterd or Shepbull
and a 6mos Pug... One day last week I was reading up on dry dog food and came across an article of how terrible supermarket brand dog food is. Then I went to read the ingredients of my kibbles n bits health bag and saw that the ONLY meat ingredient was “beef fat”!!! and that was listed under PROTEIN!! And it was like 6th or 7th!! WTF HAVE I BEEN FEEDING MY BABIES!!! Then I came across <http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/dog_food_reviews/> and began to wonder about premium dry dog food and how its main ingredients are meat. Then I read on to RAW feeding and how dry food, no matter how nutritious it is it will never provide the “life energy” from food that dogs, or any living thing, does. How much more beneficial a RAW diet is and another article said that dogs on a raw diet can easily surpass 20 years (AWESOME!!!), also how this type of nutrition will more than likely take care of any of the “problems” that certain dogs or breeds have today.
So I was sold!!!
--I know I want to give my babies a much much better diet than I currently am of supermarket kibble.
--I know that they, like the VERY active happy dogs that they are
, deserve as best nutrition that I can provide them. Hell, we eat different foods every day.
-- I DO not want to go broke doing it!! I mean that’s the reason why pople buy supermarket kibble because 20-30 dollars would feed them for over a month! And as I read these “premium” dog foods I saw that a 30lb bag is 55-60 bucks , AND CAN ONLY BE FOUND ONLINE!! But I really cant put a price on helping them live 5-10+++ years longer..
-- I have NO IDEA what Im doing with the raw diet!! The closest Ive gotten to it is mixing their food with an egg or 2 or giving them our left over roasts.
I don’t have a meal plan, don’t know where to buy or what to buy, dont know how to keep it reasonably priced. I think the only thing that I DO know is that I have to make the change gradually, and slow so as to not upset their insides too much..
So Im asking for some help!! Please!! Guidance!!!
