Recipes: Fresh Dog Food

These are meals we rotate at the Safari Doodles Ranch. The key to feeding raw/cooked is variety each week. An adult dog doesn’t need a “Balanced meal” every day. Dogs thrive with a variety of foods to meet their nutritional needs over the course of a week. To learn more about feeding a fresh food diet to your dog, check out more of our articles here in our Safari Doodles Education blog

Chicken Leg/Thigh quarter. Fed RAW. Do not cooked bones that you feed your dog. Raw chicken bones are chewy and easy to crunch without any bone shards. Cooked bones splinter! We suggest using a bone grinder (pictured below) if you do not want to feed whole bones. Raw chicken can be fed a few meals a week for an economical and healthy diet. Note: some dogs need a lower fat diet. We take off the skin when feeding those dogs! We suggest you also give these 2 NuVet supplements most days of the week. We usually take a day off from supplements every 3-4 days.
