Okay. I was swayed to Raw Fed Diet. ((thanks again marsha, :wink:))

Marsha told me of a website, i went, and loved what i read, and **miracle of miracles** managed to convience one of my best friends(who owns an akita, older 12yrs) into trying raw with her 'n his mother's 2 shitzu's... Our problem...

My puppy is 4months, his is 12yrs, and he's responsible for 2 tiny shitzu's... We are going to start with chicken as its easier to access and cheaper by far for us.

Our delimna. How do we go about it? how much? what should all be in it for the first time meal in respect of each of our dogs(the shitzu's are 1yr 'n 3yrs).

We are complete novice and want to find all this out before attempting the change over. ((gradual change over that is, lol))

Basically... we need to know exactly what to feed and how much to feed.

Make sure that you READ. PMR is a learning process, where you start with the basics and adjust for your dog. Chicken for a month (no organs or liver), then slowly start adding in other meats and organs. Remember, do it SLOWLY though. Cannonbutt is terrible, especially when it comes at 3am...

For pups, you want to spread the 2-3% over a few meals a day. If you start to notice that she's getting chubby, or is losing weight, adjust her feeding amount accordingly. Some dogs require more or less than others.

Join groups to help you out more (yahoo, facebook, etc.) PMR peeps are always willing to help you out. :)

Good luck! Its so cool watching your dog eat what its supposed to eat. :p

PS: DEFINITELY look into getting a deep freezer though. It'll come in handy when you find a great deal somewhere and want to stock up!

OH, and STAY AWAY from meats that have added seasonings, or are "enhanced." Sodium and seasonings are definitely not good for dogs, plus they can trigger cannonbutt.

DO NOT COOK BONES. Cooked bones splitter, thus creating a choking hazard.
