As you can see, I vary their proteins as much as I can. I shop for sales as I can not feed expensive meats all the time. Some people are lucky and have access to low cost meats and some people are not. I think, if you put some effort into it, no matter where you live you can find SOME way to afford to feed raw.
The rabbit in a previous pic was from a friend who donated their catch to me. The venison was deer I hunted myself. The chicken and beef I found on sale at grocery stores for a very good price. I admit, I splurged with the lamb that I bought from Walmart. The way I look at it, now that I feed raw, I no longer buy my dogs treats. The treats I used to buy were basically junk food and even though they were not good quality, I was spending good money on them. I figure the money I used to spend on treats can now be used for superior dog food instead.
And here is the pay off to all the work of finding, purchasing, defrosting, and portioning all that raw meat. A healthy dog enjoying a natural, biologically appropriate meal.
Sometimes, I give them a whole part of an animal. I find this is mentally stimulating for the dogs to be able to enjoy actually working for their meal. This is a deer ribcage. He did not eat it all at once. Some dogs self regulate and some dogs will gorge themselves silly. I give my dogs a certain amount of time with large pieces like this and then take it away until next time.
I will post more pictures as soon as I have more decent shots.
