And Angie, I checked out ZP's website and it lists this under their FAQ:


Q | Does ZiwiPeak have Omega-3 Supplements?

We do not offer an Omega 3 supplement product. We believe the extremely high quality of natural ingredients used to make all ZiwiPeak products delivers all the necessary nutritional requirements to provide your dog or cat the perfect daily diet.

We use high levels of New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel in all of our Cuisine formulations. Green-Lipped Mussel contains high levels of Glucosamine and Chondroitin as well as Omega 3 & Omega 6.

There is sufficient Glucosamine, Chondroitin and Omega 3 & 6 in ZiwiPeak to provide your dog and catís recommended daily dosage.

There is no need for you to purchase additional costly supplements. ZiwiPeak's latest test results gave the following Omega levels:

Omega 3 - 3.7g/100g
Omega 6 - 7.18g/100g
___

We use Alaskan Salmon Oil but there are many varieties out there. Since I'm feeding multiples we use a few capsules at a time, but there was a member here (can't remember who off hand!!) who was using toothpicks to prick them open, squirting out a few drops, and then re-inserting the toothpick to form a seal. Genius idea if you ask me! Don't hesitate to ask anything else you think of, Tracy can vouch that I too came with tons and tons of questions when I first started raw. =)
Thanks Kat! I just wasn't sure if Star was getting enough supplements from just the ZP I was giving her for one meal and raw for dinner.

I been giving her coconut oil with her food and the oil still made her skin softer, her fur softer and more shiny and I havent seen her itch behind her ears, which is her usual place that she itches.

Thank you for the nfo and meal plan. I want to 100% raw, but am scared. They get raw a few nights a week. With this meal plan I just might jump into it!

This thread really should be a sticky, just sayin...

As a dog is a scavenger, it's natural for them to be on the hunt for food; especially if you're feeding them raw food and they know it's available! =D Often, people assume their dogs are starving if they are always begging; when often the case seems to be that the owner had been rewarding the behavior; i.e. "caving in" and giving a tiny tidbit of a treat so they'd "stop bothering them." Unfortunately, what they've actually done is taught the dog that the longer it persists in any attention (and food)-seeking behaviors, you will eventually reward it. As dogs are very smart, they pick up on this, and will learn very quickly to continue repeating the behavior.
Your dogs weight will be your best indicator of how much to feed them. Just as it is with people, what works for each individual dog will differ based on metabolism, activity level, etc. and it's about finding the right amount for each dog. Also, as raw fed dogs are given bones as part of their diet, it's a lot more mental stimulation as well as they are working their jaws and teeth. I hope that answers your question! =)

Thanks so much LostLakeLua! I have been researching raw for several months before we got our new kittens last November, I decided at that time since I had been making my Chi's meals (crockpot) for several years why not go raw, it would be less time consuming on me and better for them! The hardest part for me was finding other small dog owners to make sure I was doing it right. My youngest Chi only "recognizes" the raw beef as food LOL it has been quite fun getting her into eating raw as her food has been crockpot since she was 8 months (will be 4 in Feb). Chicken she will only eat if seared lightly. My older Chi who is 9 will eat anything I put down. Being that he has Color Dilution Alopecia he has no hair so trying to judge his "proper" weight has been a challenge as no hair vs hair on a healthly dog gives a little bit of a different look. But onward we go. Thank you again for this guideline, it reaffirms what I'm already doing!
