Scout, my handsome 10 month old Pyr is on a diet of large breed puppy kibble. I give him leftover cooked meat as well. Our lifestyle is not conducive to a solely raw diet as we travel away from home by car frequently with Scout. I would like to have my furry friend on a raw diet 3/4 of the time when at home and 1/4 kibble when not at home. Approximately 2weeks at home & 2 to 5 days away. I hesitate as I fear messing up his digestive system. He is healthy, happy and has adapted unbelievably well to city and country life. Scout is the best and deserves the best.
I have read that raw meat contains bacteria and needs to be frozen at some point prior to feeding it to your dog. Freezing renders the bacteria harmless.
Your knowledge and/or experiences regarding above are warmly welcomed and very helpful.
Thank You
Elena

Species-appropriate diet

Good for you for joining the raw community.

As you know, kibble is less than ideal as it's highly processed.

I am giving you some links to put into your url. There are groups out there that can help you with your questions. The more information you have the better.
