Prey - Model Raw Diet

 
 

Please read environmental hip dysplasia - Improper Diet causes hip dysplasia

Raw diet is excellent for dogs that have allergies.

Raw prevents Worms. Read and watch the video on canine deworming.

If you feed dry dog food is suggest VICTOR.



This is my own research for feeding a raw diet. the wolf packleader eats all the organs in the cavity before eating any muscle meat. This is proven in over 350 studies by wolf experts. I do not follow all the other people's online assumptions of what they think they know about feeding a raw diet. I base my knowledge by reading the studies on wolves.

Dogs should eat 5% of thier body weight

Ratio of feeding Raw Model Prey Diet

50% organs ( liver, gizzards, tripe, lung, kidney, pancrease )

10% Raw bone

40% muscle meat (including heart)


I do not feed any PORK! Possible risk of Trichinosis, also known as trichinellosis. (Roundworm)

I have a good access of  beef, chicken, deer, quail, rabbit or buffalo. I have a list below of the foods I would approve.

 

THE PURPOSE OF FEEDING A RAW DIET IS NOT TO COOK ANYTHING!

DO NOT COOK THE BONES, THE BONES WILL SPLINTER!


ROTTWEILER PUPPIES MEAL


One meal for a 8 week old puppy

  • Chicken Liver (top left)
  • Tripe (top right) - This was substituted until I got the green Tripe
  • Beef (lower left)
  • Mashed up chicken necks (bone included) (lower right)
  • One Egg (minium two times a week)


Chicken hearts & liver 2 times a week

  • 12 pcs of hearts
  • 1 liver
  • Purchase at a butcher or Walmart
  • Purchase 40lb case to usually get a discount

The picture left was only 1 liver and 12 hearts. in each compartment. Feed the puppy 2 compartments a week. Once it is frozen it will come out like a popsicle. It fits nicely in your freezer. We purchased the container at Bass Pro Shop for $11.99. It is actually a water proof fishing lur box.

MUSCLE MEATS


Raw beef steaks

  • Purchase at a butcher
  • Get from a Slughter house
  • Korean meat market
  • World market


Raw beef trimmings

  • Purchase at a butcher
  • Get from a Slughter house
  • Korean meat market
  • World market


Beef or Deer Heart

  • Heart is NOT a organ meat, it is a muscle meat
  • Purchase at a butcher or Slaughter house
  • Buy the whole heart and cut yourself
  • This hearts weighed 5lbs


Beef / Cow Tongue

  • Muscle meat
  • Purchase at a butcher or Slaughter house
  • Buy the whole tongue and cut yourself
  • This tongue weighed 3.5lbs

ORGAN MEATS


Raw chicken leg quarters

  • DO NOT cook the chicken, it will cause the bones to splinter
  • 10lb bags at walmart


Cleaned tripe - human consumption (cleaned and bleached)

  • Organ Meat
  • Purchase at Walmart
  • Bleached tripe has less minerals
  • very expensive
  • only use this as a substitute and last resort


Green tripe

Green tripe is the unprocessed, unbleached, and unscalded stomach of ruminant animals. It is usually beige, gray, or black in color, and contains gastric enzymes as well as partially digested plant material. Grass-fed green tripe will usually reflect a green tint or sheen from absorption of the animal's natural diet of grasses.

Green tripe is said to be one of the most nutritionally complete all natural foods available for your carnivore, with fatty acids Omegas 3 & 6, and the ideal Calcium to Phosphorus ratio of 1:1. It also contains Lactic Acid Bacteria, more commonly known as the probiotic ingredient Lactobacillus Acidophilus, which can aid in digestion.

I do not agree, as some say, this is a complete balanced died to feed tripe only to your dog. Carnivors eat bone for the marrow, and muscle meat for protien. Bone also has lots of natural calicum to help the dogs joints grow and form. Liver is high in iron that helps oxygen to parts of the body for growth.


Chicken gizzards

  • Organ meat
  • 3% of the meal
  • Purchase at a butcher or Walmart
  • purchase 30lb case to usually get a discount
  • 30pc of gizzards are bagged and frozen
  • This is based on 5 dogs - 6 gizzards each, 2 times a week
The picture left was only 15 lbs of gizzards. I still had 15 lbs left to separate and bag. The amount of gizzards in the picture will last me 2 months with five dogs. Only a few gizzards a week is needed to balance the ratio with meat muscle protien.


Beef intestines

  • Organ meat
  • Purchase at Walmart
  • Substitute for tripe
  • can feed as a extra for weight gain


Beef Liver

  • Organ meat
  • 5% of the meal
  • Purchase at a butcher or Slaughter house
  • Buy the whole liver and cut yourself
The picture is the entire liver. After separating and bagging the liver it gave me 10lbs.
Older dogs do not usually like the taste of liver.
It is much easier when you start feeding Raw as a puppy.


Beef Lung

  • Organ meat
  • .5% organ meat
  • Purchase at a butcher or Slaughter house
  • Buy the whole lung and cut yourself
This organ meat is very light and feels akward. It looks very big, but may weigh only 1lb


Beef Spleen

  • Organ meat
  • .5% ratio of organ meat
  • Purchase at a butcher or Slaughter house

Note: do not feed much because it is high in Iron.



Beef Kidneys

  • Organ meat
  • 1% ratio of organ meat
  • Purchase at a butcher or Slaughter house
  • Buy the whole kidney and cut yourself



Dogs are like wolves, the dogs mitochondrial DNA is 99.8% the same as wolves. The wolves do not eat the stomach contents of there prey. The only time it may be consumed is if the prey is small like a rabbit because the whole rabbit is consumed, otherwise the wolf shakes out the contents of the stomach, and sometimes eats the stomach wall or lining.

There is a book 2003 "Wolves: Behavior, Ecology, and conservation" that is compiled of 350 years of research, field observations, and experiments. here is a Quote take from chapter 4, The wolf as a carnivore.

"Wolves usually tear into the body cavity of large prey and...consume the larger internal organs, such as lungs, heart, and liver. The large rumen [, which is one of the main stomach chambers in large ruminant herbivores,]...is usually punctured during removal and its contents spilled. The vegetation in the intestinal tract is of no interest to the wolves, but the stomach lining and intestinal wall are consumed, and their contents further strewn about the kill site."

"To grow and maintain their own bodies, wolves need to ingest all the major parts of their herbivorous prey, except the plants in the digestive system."

Other quotes from Wolf experts

"Wolves predominately prey on hoofed animals including Deer, moose, Bison, Elk, and caribou. Because wolves usually hunt for large animals, (although wolves are opportunistic and will eat smaller prey) they work together to catch their prey. Wolves will eat a healthy, strong animal if they can catch it."

"One of the most odd part of the diet of wolves is fish! Biologist Bod Bromley once observed a wolf in Canada's Northwest Territories catch five fish in fifteen minutes in the Talston River."

Dogs have not been removed to far from wolves, they still require the need for meat, bone , and organs. Dogs have not been domesticated to change there nutritional needs. They still cannot utilize vetetables as efficiently as meat.

Respect of the Extinct Thylacine

The thylacine (Greek for "dog-headed pouched one") was the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times. It is commonly known as the Tasmanian tiger (because of its striped back) or the Tasmanian wolf.

The Tasmanian wolf or Tasmanian tiger is not a wolf or a tiger, it is a marsupial. The body resemles that of a placental wolf and the skull resemles a canid.
