Actually I found the answer myself. Seems to be around 12. Works out to be around the same price monthly as dried ZP so that's not too bad. They might even have it at the local pet shop here because I know they carry Orijen products.

Great idea. Just went ahead and mailed ZP for that. Hopefully they will send us some!

Thanks again! Yeah, maybe they'll know of other similar brands we can find locally, preferably something with single protein flavors.

Hi Catlin, lovely to see you back. I'm sorry dear Gemma isn't doing so well.
Are you sure you can't find enough fresh meats to go fully raw? Just 4 regular protein sources would be enough, plus some fish and eggs. Many dogs with allergies do fine on far less variety than this. I hope you see in an improvement in her soon.
Can't wait to see pics, I have missed her little face.

Thanks for all the tips!



Hey Jan! I'll have to charge my camera and take a picture of her for you guys!

Also very glad to hear from you. I hope Gemma improves. Not sure what to suggest but could you supplement with a vitamin supplement made for dogs?

Hi, Stella! I'm not sure. If she has to stay off all the proteins she's had in the past, like chicken, lamb, beef, and pork, I'm not sure where I will be able to find the less common ones like duck and rabbit. The biggest issue is that I can't find much for organ here. I would definitely prefer going all raw since it gives me total control of what she eats and it's most affordable for us, I just want to make sure she'll be getting a rounded diet.

Hey, Jayda! That's what I was wondering. Or are supplements like that not effectively absorbed?

Hello, it is so very important that you either feed raw or kibble but not both. They digest very very differently.
