- Occasional Raw Feeding

Not ready to commit to daily raw feeding? 
How about once a week, say on a day off?
What You will Need - Basics
1. Meat
2. Calcium
3. Omega 3 fish body oil

What You Will Need - Details
1. Meat protein: Poultry, beef, pork (chunk, not ground)
2. Calcium supplement: 1/2 tsp. powdered egg shell per lb. (heaping cup) of meat - or - store-bought calcium carbonate supplement (see Tips).  Sprinkle calcium supplement on top of meat before serving
3. Omega 3 supplement: Fish body oil; Salmon oil preferred (see Tips)

How Often/When to Feed?
I suggest once a day - morning (see tips)

Sanitation
Use common-sense sanitary precautions handling raw meat. (For you!  The dog will be fine)

How Much to feed?
1. Each dog is different therefore quantities are a guideline only.  Feed larger quantity if your dog is very active; smaller quantity if she is a couch potato.  She will be fine - this is only one meal a week.
2. DO NOT feed kibble with this meal because you will:
    a. Be overfeeding
                b. Upset the dog's natural  digestive process for real food.
