Raw Feeding

    good day to all, my bully has a skin problem because of his previous diet, i used to fed him beef-pro dog food (very high content of protein) and i decided to shift into raw feeding, currently i give him meat-sawdust (beef). meat sawdust which is basically composed of that----meat and bone dusts and remains which all fall into a clean container while they go about chopping, cutting, sawing, etc. the meat that are displayed on their stands.

    is it ok to feed him beef-sawdust? will the skin problem disappear? my previous diet was beef-pro, they both have the same word "BEEF", the difference is that raw-feeding is natural but this beef-pro is a processed food for dogs.

    here's a pic of my bully: 4-month old

    Raw feeding is more than throwing meat in a bowl. It needs to be balanced. I wouldn't feed "beef sawdust" It doesn't sounds like it would have many nutrients in it.

    Www.preymodelraw.com this is what I feed.

    Have you had your dog checked for mange? Are you positive the issue is diet related?

    This doesn't sound at all properly balanced. If you insist on feeding this diet, please add a multivitamin to ensure your pup is getting the appropriate nutrients.

    yeah, most of the bullies in here have this kind of issues but my change of diet is different from them, they just bought another brand of dog food, it's like trial and error to them, just to know w/c dog food is suitable for their dogs. i know raw-feeding is the safest one but im not quite sure about the beef meat. beef is much more protein than pork, and high protein (they said) is the cause of this skin problem. but i also considering the fact that beef dog food is far different from natural beef.

    I don't think you are feeding raw. It sounds like until you do a lot more research into raw feeding your best bet for your dog is to keep feeding him kibble.
    When you feed raw meat the protein content is far lower then processed kibble protein content.
    a healthy raw diet you will be feeding a wide variety of protein sources not only beef.

    What unoriginal is trying to say is that just feeding beef and some veggies is not enough variety. Unless you can feed a properly balanced raw diet you are better off finding a high quality grain free food (most people go with a fish based protein if their dog has allergies). The usual cause of allergies to food (which, honestly, are only 20% of the total reasons for allergic reactions in dogs) are grains and chicken. If you can get a food without either of those you'd be better off than feeding an unbalanced raw diet.

    Read the Getting Started page at the link posted above (and here ). If you aren't able to feed a balance of meat, bones, and organs your dog will suffer in the long run from it.
