What is the best type of raw food? - McDowell's Herbal Treatments


The best food for your dog may vary depending on his individual needs. The basic diet, however, should consist of mostly succulent, raw, meaty bones with the addition of some organ meat, plus a little muscle meat , throw in a raw egg , portion of mashed banana or 1 dessertspoon of yoghurt. Some people feel that vegetables can provide additional nutrition. However because of the design of the dog's teeth and his digestive system he probably won't be able to derive much nutrition from fruits and vegetables unless they are cut very fine, mashed , or lightly cooked. A good way of serving vegetables/fruit is the fibre remains from making your own juices, mixed with minced raw meat.
