Raw Dog Food | An April A – Z Challenge to Share What I’ve Learned

Raw Dog Food from A to Z

A fellow blogger shared this cool challenge where days in the month of April are assigned a letter that inspires a topic on our blog.  After my financial wind-fail, I decided to make my topic raw dog food.

April 2014 will mark one year of feeding raw dog food and I thought it would be fun to share everything that I’ve learned.  Each post will be short, because there will be a lot of writing, but I hope to not only share our experience but provide you with links to help you learn more.

This isn’t my attempt to suck you in to the raw dog food lifestyle; instead, I just want to share information, because I know that there are lots of dog owners who are curious.  So no pressure will come from me, but I hope lots of questions will come from you!

Here is a tentative list of topics…

A – ALLERGIES

B – BOOKS ON RAW DOG FOOD

C – COCONUT OIL, CAMELINA OIL

D – DIGESTIVE ENZYMES, DETOX

E – EASY

F – FREEZE DRIED RAW FOOD v FRESH

G – GROOMING (SKIN, COAT, FLEAS AND TICKS)

H – HUMAN GRADE AND HONEST KITCHEN (BEAMS)

I – INCONSISTENCY

J – JOINT CARE, JOGGING

K – KELP

L – LIVER, HEARTS AND GIZZARDS

M – MEAT GRINDER

N – NUTRIENTS

O – OBSESSION

P – POOP

Q – QUESTIONS

R – RAW MEATY BONES

S – SALMON OIL

T – TRIPE, SMELLY AND THE DOGS LOVE IT

U – UBBERMAID WITH AN R

V – VEGGIES AND FRUITS

W – WARMING AND COOLING FOODS

X – XTRA SERVINGS, ARE THEY REALLY STILL HUNGRY?

Y – YOGURT, YAY OR NAY

Z – ZOE AND SCOUT, ALL NATURAL CHICKEN JERKY

I hope you’ll join me!  Now I better get started writing.

Are there any questions you have about raw food that you’d like me to incorporate into this challenge?  All questions welcome!

 

Update: there are 13 more days in the Booster.com campaign.  Rock a Keep the Tail Wagging t-shirt and support rescue!

  1. Thanks for starting this!

    I’ve been feeding my cats raw for almost two years and felt kinda sad I have not pushed myself to do the same for my dog (I have a large, black Nefwie). I’m really looking forward to the series and will sure share them via Triberr.

    best wishes,
    Maris

    • Thanks, Maris! We’re the opposite. Our cats refused to eat the raw and after a few days, I worried about what not eating would do to them so I switched them to a better kibble and they wouldn’t eat that. They kibble they eat now is still better than what they had, but someone explained that the high end kibble I chose was too rich for them at their age. I’m still going to try here and there to give them raw treats, but for now, it’s just the dogs and they love it.

      It’ll be nice getting your feedback on what I share.

  2. I like option F! The on going debate about raw vs a non-raw diet is fascinating!
