feeding raw

Posted by sherry sherry
I'm new to this site and new to raw feeding.  I started about a month ago and still learning
a lot about raw feeding, but here is my question
can I feed my German Shepherd whole chicken every day?

Re: feeding raw

A whole chicken, depending on it's weight, is an awful lot of food, considering Dr. Ian Billinghurst recommends 2-3% of your dog's body weight.  You may also want to check the phosphorus/calcium ratio on an entire chicken because I believe there may be too much meat versus bone.

Feeding chicken alone is not nutritionally balanced.  Be sure to add veggies, offal, fruit and other nutrients.

A poorly put together raw diet can be detrimental to the health of an animal.

Happy BARFing!
