Default Making My Own Raw Food

So, I have decided to start making my own raw food. I was going to be a distributor for someone but I realized to make it is cheap and they sell it for a whole ton of money. I am just going to make my own and not buy off of them and not sell for them.

This is my recipe. Let me know if you think it sounds ok

Beef, beef heart, carrots, peas, apple, potato, egg (whole), grapeseed extract, cod liver oil,

Its hard to tell because each recipe needs to be tailored to each individual dog regarding age, weight, lifestyle, activity level, health, etc. For example in the winter time my guys get some raw beef fat for that extra fuel to keep warm but if a Husky of the same proportions as OC but who lived as solely a pet and only went outside for his 1 hour walk every day and never got any more excercise than that and always lived in the house, got fed the same amount, it is very likely he would end up fat whereas OC would stay fit and trim simply due to the different lifestyles and activity levels...make sense?

Thats good! His diet would likely be different than that of your pup as he probably is out and doing a lot more than she is at the moment and you also have to cater to her growing body.

What would be good for her? Do you know? She eats like a horse and is gaining about 3 lbs a week right now. She is also very active and gets walked at least once a day if not twice.

I dont, sorry! That would be something to consult with your vet. I would assume a high muscle meat diet...it would be best to consult a vet who you is pro-raw, or if you want I could get you in touch with my dog nutritionist.

if feeding raw you REALY need to keep the bone and meat ratio right, and keep it very simple at first. most will suggest picking one protein and feeding it for a week at first, (ie chicken backs or quarters)

I dont' think you want to be feeding cod liver oil every day. You'll need to get a fish body oil for everyday feeding and then feed offal occassionally (or however you work it).

edit: plus you really need a calcium and other mineral source like soft, raw bones

Thats why the egg shell is in there. Should I add more egg shell?

I would like to feed beef. Its easier for me to get my hands on. So do you think that I should just stick to beef and NO heart for the time being?
