Default Raw Feeders: Question.

So, anyone that feeds raw (all, snack, once-in-a-while, ect).

How long does it take your dog to finish his/her food?


Lizzie can finish a Chicken Leg in about 15/20 mins and a Turkey Wing in 10mins. Major on the other hand takes atleast 45 mins to finish a CL.

I give raw frozen chicken leg quarters on occassion. Sawyer will take his time and make it last about 15-20 minutes, while Virgo gets hers down in between 5-10 minutes. Times are approx. because I've never paid much attention to the clock when they're eating. But I know that Virgo sees it as a personal challenge to see how quick she can eat while still chewing. It's half the reason she gets her frozen, it makes her slow down a bit. If it was fresh, I think it would be gone in about 2 minutes.

About 30 seconds to a minute a meal? Haha, I think the longest he's ever taken is about 7 minutes but that's because it was a whole duck (he didn't eat the whole thing of course) and it was still mostly frozen.

anywhere between 30 seconds and a minute... Gipsy gets grains as an addition though!

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

Pearl is on raw food and raw bones. All my guys get raw bones.

I feed her food that my aunt makes up, and its in a 8 oz pattie. I feed her 2 patties, twice a day, and its usually gone in 5 seconds LOL

For all my guys on the raw bones from the butcher, they last about a day, if that long.

With my 3 it depends on what they are having. Typically Bruzer is finished his meal in about 30 seconds because I chop his bones up (after our CPR issue a while back, he rarely gets a whole bone). If the meal for Gunnar and Daisy is something like leg quarters and a muscle meat, she will finish in about 3-4 minutes, and he takes his time, 10 minutes or so. Last night they all got venison. She got a shoulder that was about 3.5lbs, he got a rack of ribs that was about 2.5lbs. They took at least 30 mins to finish those.

Knuckle bones last a few hours to get cleaned out. Raw meaty bones (chicken parts...) about a minute.

Meals don't last long around here. If it is muscle meat, boneless, it is gone in seconds. Leg quarters or neck bones can take 5-10 minutes. A healthy dog with a proper appetite usually attacks and eats food quickly when it is presented.

Depends on whether or not Shiva's in the vicinity.

My two eat a lot slower now that we're at my house . . . . because they can, lol!
