So I recently started feeding raw and my dogs are doing well so far. They lost a little bit of weight but I kind of expected that when feeding just chicken and still trying to find the correct amount to feed. My only concern right now is how to maintain a correct calcium/phosphorus ratio, I've read a few different things and can't seem to figure out how to get it right. Any help is appreciated!

The meat has the phosphorus and the bone has the calcium. By feeding the proper percentage of each, 80% meat and 10% bone respectively, you will be getting the correct ratio of phosphorus to calcium.

Gally, that is what I thought but just wanted to confirm, thank you :). I'm still in the beginning stages of getting them used to raw food so I still don't have the percentages exact, but they're doing better every day.
