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.

i dont give her any bones cooked. all bones she gets is raw. and i lucked out on the elk meat. He got too much meat and knew i never had it before so it was a treat.

Oregano is a debate item obiviously.

I plan to get some wet/canned food, and i got some of that colored mixsture pasta(cant think of the name for the life of me, lol) i plan to mix together with some cooked meat. To see if she'll eat that. she has gone off her dry food... Since i mixed in the TOTW, science diet*i got free sample from vet*, and 1 other brand .

at least i'm thinking of doing that.....
You can try whole fresh sardines -- everything intact: fish heads, tail, scales, etc. Sardines are cheap. Not the canned variety, of course. Or chicken. With a little dog, try with two drumstick sizes maybe. Just give the whole thing to your dog. Handle properly the meat, and serve.
