I often get asked what I feed my dogs. If you curious to see my dogs in action head over to our YouTube channel.
In this post, I’ll share what I feed my dogs and why.
I’m not a qualified nutritionist and I’m sharing what I know from my experience. I cannot be held responsible for anything if you choose to follow what I share.
I got to know about BARF from the Born Protector YouTube channel. In essence, BARF states that a dog’s diet must contain 80% meat, 10% organ meat and 10% bones.
I started feeding BARF with Chicken as the primary protein source, with the only exception of cooking the meat slightly. I kept exploring more on BARF and found that the diet can be made more balanced by switching the source of protein.
So I started feeding two types of meat in a week constantly switching between the following
Finding a balanced diet for your dog is a constant battle and it takes a lot of observation to settle on a suitable diet. Each dog is different and so is their diet.
Though my dogs primarily thrive on meat yet I find them showing discomfort by eating grass. That was when I realized that the way I was storing meals could have been the reason for the discomfort.
Storing and feeding meat requires freezing and thawing. The freezing part is easy. Ration the meat by meals and put them in the freezer. The meat must be stored in sub zero temperatures. Thawing is the process of defrosting the meat under 4°C by placing the meat in your refrigerator and not in the freezer. To thaw 4 Kgs of frozen meat, it may take up to 12 hours.
Never defrost the meat at room temperature. If you do so, the meat should be cooked within 15 minutes.
