Hi
It's me again its been a minute since I been here and on raw !

Well I'm lazy not gonna lie but I like raw , I'm a busy groomer and I need something quick


Question A....

So I never understood how much and how often

1.I feed once a day , Is that enough on raw ?
2.my guys are 5,6,12 lbs how much do I give ?
3. For the first meal what did you feed ! ?

I'm the type of person that is always second guessing my self if someone don't say its right lol so when yall say feed any food it will rack my brain on what's the best to feed ...
So please let me know what the best first meal should be

question B...

Also is it best to just buy some from the market or buy from a wholesale place ?
1.how much to buy from these places for 3dogs ?
2. Are the pattys any good ?

Thanx guys !!

Depends on the individual dogs needs
2.my guys are 5,6,12 lbs how much do I give ?
2-3% of their ideal weight adding or subtracting depending on body condition
3. For the first meal what did you feed ! ?
Bone in chicken for the first 2 weeks - do your research bedore you strt or you can make them sick, look in the sticky in this forum

Feed anything that's not enhanced just stick to rations 80% meat 10% bone 5% liver 5%other secreting organ

1.how much to buy from these places for 3dogs ?

It's cheaper to buy in bulk portion and freeze but depends on your freezer space
2. Are the pattys any good ?
Yes as long as you choose a good one but you won't get the dental benefits so will need to throw in some rmb meals
Thanx guys !!
Hope this helps but I would really do some reading up don't go in all guns blazing just slow and steady or you'll make them very sick. Read the sticky on this thread it really helps newbies
