Star Bane's Raw Food Diary

Post by Bane on Mon Jan 27 2014, 11:25

First topic message reminder :

So we have switched Bane to raw, and just wanted to make a little diary to help us keep track of things and to also hopefully help others who are thinking of changing Smile

So a little information about Bane:
He was on Hills Science Plan Vet Essentials dry food, having 300g a day split into 3x100g meals. He has been on hay fever tablets for the last few months and has been having some real itching problems which we are hoping is down to some kind of food allergy, hence why we want to swap to raw.
He is 5 and a half months old and weighs about 16kg.

Our Plan:
We ordered our first lot of raw meat from DAF (Durham Animal Feeds) as this was a recommended place on the forum. In our first order we got:
- Chicken Mince,
- Turkey Mince,
- Tripe Mince,
- Chicken and Oily Fish Mince.
- Chicken Portions (Wings and Thighs)
- Chicken Chunks (Pure Meat)
(We are really happy with the order! Got 6 boxes full of meat which we just managed to fit into our undercounter freezer Tongues)

We plan to feed Chicken first, once his stools become normal, gradually mix in a bit of turkey, then tripe and then the chicken and oily fish. We got the Chicken Wings and Thighs to give him something to chew on and to help clean his teeth, and the Chicken Chunks in case the mince was too high in bone content. (DAF said they try to keep the minces at no more than 15% bone)
We will then move on to pork, lamb, beef and then start to add in some offal and other more exciting things Smile (Each after his stools return to normal)

In terms of how much we are going to feed, we have started with 1 pack of mince per day, which we will gradually increase/decrease depending on how his weight is affected.

I'll try to keep this updated with photos and posts for anyone who is interested Smile

What an absolute hellish thread this is!

I was sceptical about raw feeding, what with all the different things you read left right and centre.

But i look to have found a reputable supplier (DAF and Rawtdoor), who are both local to me. This thread has settled any nerves I may have had.
Going to my local clearance store to get a chest freezer tomorrow and hopefully have my first batch delivered by the weekend!

Thanks alot, I will be keeping an eye on this thread!!

Quick update!
We switched Theia over 8 months ago, and it's the best thing we have done for her! Her coat shines, she doesn't smell, and I have the satisfaction of knowing exactly what she is eating. She has a variety of meats, offal and bones, and devours the lot with gusto!!

This has been a great thread that helped to give us confidence!! Thanks!
