    Raw Feeding Picture Thread

    So, Sibe had a great idea..a raw feeding picture thread. I've seen it on other threads, wasn't sure if it was done here or not, or if it should go in the food forum or in picture forum, but I think this is a more appropriate location for it.

    Please share your raw feeding pictures!

    Fun idea!! Here are two shots of Molly. One is her of very first raw meal, a chicken neck she wasn't exactly sure what to do with but she definitely wanted it so she tried to carried it around. The other is Molly enjoying some beef. I also have a great Youtube video of my little kitchen wolf that I'm adding a link to here as well.

    Where do you get whole sardines? Are they frozen or canned?

    I buy them frozen at a local grocery store, in the seafood section. Here they come in about a bag of about a dozen I wanna say, for $6. I thaw them out slightly then feed, although lately i've been just thawing one out and cutting it up for them to share. If I feed it whole, they roll in it before they eat it for some reason lol. So they each get about half a large sardine once a week.

    I get whole frozen sardines at the regular grocery store. Not canned.

    I have a ton of pictures.
    Denali with a llama leg.


    I took the bones shortly after this pic as the leg bone is much too hard ,and the toe bones are hard as well as being choking-hazard sized.


    Llama neck


    Pork picnic roast




    Whole feathered chickens. I only did it this way once as feathers made a mess. I skin birds now.


    "Do I have something on my face?"


    Beef ribs (aka bath day)


    This is what is meant by letting a dog "strip the meat" off a bone before taking it away. This was a pork arm bone, a little hard for her.

    I don't feed raw but I'm always amazed at pictures of dog who eat it. I don't think I could feed anything that still has feathers or hair!

    Re: Raw Feeding Picture Thread

    Yeah I'm not sure I could either, not that it would bother me per say, but the mess I just wouldn't want to deal with. The place I order my prey model raw from sells whole piglets and rabbits, the piglets are whole though and I think I'd have an issue feeding that so I just opt for the chickens and the rabbits, atleast they are skinned and beheaded lol.

    I have though, let Cash catch and eat a mouse once lol.

    I want to feed the boys a PMR meal tomorrow morning before our camping trip, and I'm itching to try the rabbit - will be their first time eating whole rabbit, although they get ground rabbit all the time so i'll be sure to get some pics of that!

    I haven't given Carmen anything raw yet because of the mess. I scrambled an egg for her but couldn't imagine just putting a raw egg in her dish without getting egg all over her. Plus, I think she would take a raw bone right to the sofa to knaw on and I would lose my mind. lol. Do you give a bath after every meal? how do you keep a house and dog clean on a raw diet?

    My dogs just lap up the raw egg out of the dish, and they don't make a mess what so ever with it. For the raw bones and such, as you can see - it goes outside, or in the back porch on the lino where its easy to clean up after. The stinky stuff like fish and tripe absolutely go outside without a doubt lol. I dont have a problem with the boys bringing raw bones in the house and on the carpet once they've cleaned the meat and blood off and they continue using it as a recreational bone for a couple days after.

    I never have to bath my dogs, when I USED to feed the sardines whole, Cash would occasionally roll on them, so I'd have to wash him off quickly but since I've just started cutting the fish in medallion peices. If they get a little messy, I just take a wash cloth with some warm water with a tiny bit of doggy shampoo or soap and just wipe them down if its on a place they can't clean themselves. Luckily my dogs aren't messy eaters. It is very easy to train a dog to stay on a blanket or a towel to eat their meals if you so desire, that way you just pop it into the washing machine afterward. I can instruct my dogs to stay in one area of the kitchen on the linoleum floor to eat, and then I mop up or swiffer afterward where they ate. However, most of their PMR meals they eat outside on the deck or the grass - just easier that way.

    I feed mainly a premade ground raw, which is no different than say, canned food. Its just ground up meat that is previously frozen and formed into little hamburger style patties and easy to thaw and serve - this is a great way to feed raw for people who are little weary about feeding 'whole' animal parts like PMR. My boys get a few PMR meals a week when I have ample time to either thaw it, butcher it, portion it, and of course supervise them while they eat it. Otherwise on like weekday mornings or busy days, they get premade ground raw, and when I feed that all I do is put it in a bowl and wash it out thoroughly with hot soapy water once they've finished, and wipe down the counters where I prepared it incase any blood dripped off or something.

    Carnivora/Urban Carnivore - not sure if its available in US? Its made in Sask, AB. http://www.carnivora.ca/index.cfm

    Really like this food, its one of the higher quality commercial raw foods available here, and it is of course the most expensive - but its preservative, filler and additive free, and 100% fresh and organic, just whole animal product. and I get a great discount on it so that's primarily why I continue to feed it, good price, for the convenience and quality, IMO. My 6.5 yr old Shiba Inu has been eating it since he was weaned as a pup with no problems, Thumper has been on it for a year with no issues - they both love it. Great varieties, I carry 8 different proteins on a regular basis and stock up on each one monthly.

    Thanks packmomma--I think the next egg I give her will just be a bowl of egg. Plus since the weather's good, I may toss her a bone (literally ) in the yard.

    Unless your dog has a beard, I can't see it being too messy. I also feed eggs w/ the shells too. In the picture I didn't because the meal had enough bone in it that the shell wasn't really necessary - but you could certainly feed the shells as well for a little added calcium, and depending on the size of the dog, 1 whole raw egg can easily be an entire meal. RMB's (raw meaty bone's) are a great way to supplement occasionally for both nutrition and dental health too!

    Re: Raw Feeding Picture Thread

    I haven't ever really posted here much before (I had some SERIOUS computer issues for a long long time) and I've been feeding raw for... a year and a half? I've got quite a few good pictures of my Shiba Inu Conker eating raw meats, and the Girls (Border Collie x Labrador Retrievers, mainly kibble-fed) to share. I'll try to space them every few posts so I don't overload you all with images.
    The bowls below contain any of the following: Turkey backs or necks, any part of a chicken, pork or beef meat, canned oysters or clams, sardines, beef liver, chicken hearts, eggs, turkey or chicken gizzards, ground roasted chicory root (prebiotic, food for probiotics), probiotic powder.


    Conker munching on a turkey neck. I think.


    Various meats for the dogs.


    Chicken etc.


    Conker with a beef rib.


    Last thanksgiving.


    Turkey based meals.


    More turkey, I think. Or chicken.


    Sasha with... something.


    Juneau with another something.

    (Look at those black coats reflecting the pool! The Girls may be kibble-fed, but the partial raw does make a difference.)


    Okay, I think that's good for now.

    I have some vids too. Some are quite long as I lose track of how long I've been recording haha. I have a blog and have posted pics and vids for friends to see to help get them on the raw feeding train.. I'm not quite as obsessed as all these pics and vids are probably making me seem lol.

    Pork roasts


    Chicken quarters


    Kaytu's first egg


    Whole chicken


    Beef ribs (Kaytu goes to town on these!)

    Yeah, not happening here either. And that's not something I'll be "getting over". One of the main reasons I haven't gone raw yet. I'm OK with chicken quarters. . .just trying to figure out how to do this without cutting up kidneys or feeding llama heads or whatever!

    I do feed the cats ground raw and some chunks. So far only pre-made ground but I'm going to order some ground meats from Hare Today soon--but that's almost pre-made; just needs some mixing. I used to think it was harder with cats bbut I'm thinking it's harder with dogs!
