Frozen meat is absolutely fine, people with big dogs tend to buy frozen meat in bulk. Freezing is also believed to make certain meats safer to feed, as it kills any 'nasties' that may be present.

Agree with body's mom stick with chicken for a few weeks or until poops are good,buy free range if possible the meat quality is far superior,take it very slow we can tend to rush adding other meats cos we are very enthusiastic lol,karen

Hi there,

I am considering starting my chi Coco on the raw food diet and started today with some chicken thigh meat. It was boneless so I will have i remember to include bone and organ her next meal.

She took a little while to get used to it but managed to down a 1/4 cup portion at the end.
My main question is that she is only 11 weeks old, what are the best bones to be feeding a little mouth?. she can certainly chew and is going through a bit of a teething thing at the moment but would love any advice you have.

cheers
alex.

Wow! I always heard that you never* give your dog bones (like chicken, etc.) because they can splinter and make them choke, or even poke through their intestines! :O

Cooked bones are the problem! Raw bones are fine to be consumed. Just think, if raw bones couldn't be consumed... there would be no cats. No coyotes. No wolves. No bears. No predators at all. Their systems are made to process raw bones, no problem.

Thumbs up Raw food diet sucess for my friend

I have been reading through this forum for about a week now, since I am planning to adopt a little Chi or Chi mix beginning of next year or sometime in the spring.

Having read through this thread, I shared the raw food diet concept (the concept very much makes sense to me) with my friend and coworker. She just got an 8 week old Mi-Ki puppy (TOTALLY adorable! ).
Her puppy had been on one form of kibble (coming from the breeder) and she was trying to switch it to a form of higher quality kibble with the result of the poor baby throwing up. The pup is also a very finniky eater.

She decided to give the raw food diet a try and purchased a frozen version from a pet store.
The puppy did not only gobble the first serving completely up, she asked for a second, which she completely ate (and licked her bowl completely clean).
You should see the energy that puppy has now!

Unfortunatley I don't know what brand of frozen raw food my friend chose, but I am very exited that her baby is doing much better on it!
She is going to feed her puppy raw from now on, and I am looking forward to doing the same, once I have found my baby next year.

I am very grateful for all the information here.
Thank you very much!
