What We Feed
Choosing the right food to feed your new puppy is crucial to their overall health and well-being and something that should be done with careful thought and consideration. This is one of the many reasons why we choose to wean our puppies with the BARF (biologically appropriate raw food) diet and PMR (prey model raw).
We strongly suggest you keep your puppy on the diet for at least 7 days to help your puppy transition much more smoothly with no upset tummy and no smelly loose stools.
If you would rather feed your puppy a quality kibble, we have also started your puppy on the Instinct kibble listed below.
We make our own meals and recipes. Your puppy will be introduced to 3 lean muscle meats. Beef (ground beef) Chicken and Turkey (ground and diced). There are companies that you can purchase pre-made raw from if you're not comfortable with making your own.
We feed 2-3% of the puppies expected adult weight per day, divided up in to 3 feedings per day. Raw is calculated using pounds. Here are ingredients we use and ones your puppy will be use to having:
MUSCLE MEAT 75%
FRUITS & VEGETABLES 5%
Here are some helpful links on feeding raw.
While we do start puppies on raw and would really love to see this continued for them, we do understand that it isn't for everyone. We will have also started your puppy on Instinct kibble. This is a brand that we find acceptable to recommend. This is a food that can be found in stores, as well as online.
