- 20 pounds of duck wings
- 30 pounds of duck gizzards (or venison when I don’t have gizzards)
- 5 pounds of duck hearts (or turkey hearts)
- 10 pounds of turkey scapula meat
- 8 pounds of organ/offal blend by GreenTripe.com (4-2 lb chubs)
- 5 pounds of a vegetable mix
- Stainless steel bowls
- Mixing spoons
- Meat grinder
- Mixer (optional)
- Rubbermaid containers (I have several sets – these are amazing)
I prefer to feed my dogs ground raw dog food; it’s easy to feed ground raw from their dog dishes and leaves less of a mess.
I grind all of the meat and mix them in several huge stainless steel bowls. Once mixed, I transfer the ingredients into Rubbermaid containers and into the fridge and freezer.
The vegetable mix can be added while mixing all of the meat or to each meal as you feed your dogs. I do both depending on what I have on hand (and what I remember to do). This week, my dogs are eating very little vegetables in their meal simply because I forgot to thaw out veggie mix. A break here and there doesn’t hurt.
The above ingredients will create a balanced meal for at least a week for my four big dogs.
My dogs get the same supplements daily, but not all of my dogs get each of the following supplements. I add these to my dogs’ morning or evening meal:
- Digestive Supplement: FullBucket Daily Canine Powder or In Clover Optagest*
- Fish Oil: Bonnie & Clyde Pet Goods when I don’t feed raw sardines
- Raw Egg: fed as the multi-vitamin because raw eggs are full of nutrients
- Joint Supplement: In Clover Connectin Chews
- Golden Paste (recipe card below)
- Spirulina Powder
- Milk Thistle
- Raw Goats Milk or Milk Kefir (as a treat – but it’s good for them too)
- Bone broth (sometimes I add, sometimes I don’t)
