This article turned e-book covers the basics of raw meal prep for dogs. It includes shopping lists, explains how to figure out the amount of raw food your dog needs on a daily basis, where to shop for the ingredients, resources to use, and a few little hacks to make your raw meal prep easier.
I first mistook Freshpet Select for a raw dog food line, but it is actually gently cooked food, meaning it contains a lot of synthetic supplements to make up for the nutrients lost during the cooking process.

Organs don’t make up a big portion of the raw food diet for dogs (10%), but they are an absolutely necessary ingredient for a balanced, raw meal and overall doggie health.
Part 3 of my raw feeding mini series is all about Raw Meaty Bones. Learn how much to feed (10%) and what to avoid.
Raw meaty bones are an integral part of the raw meat diet for dogs. They’re safe to feed as long as a few safety guidelines are observed.
