Serve it Frozen
Monday, 27 January 2014 19:25
Raw newbies often stare at me in disbelief when I tell them to serve food to their dog while it's still frozen, (I'll get to cats later). They imagine poochie will get something akin to brain-freeze or tummy cramps. I can assure you however, that it won't happen. So long as the dog is in good condition with a mouth full of healthy choppers, he'll be fine. In fact, he will love the chew, revel in the grind. The chewing will actually clean his teeth, water his gums and give him immense pleasure in the taste department.
The idea is that we want to prolong the eating experience, we want him to grind away. Your dog will also benefit from the high moisture content of the frozen meat chunk (70% +), a situation that will hydrate his system evenly. He won't have to gulp down bowls of water to quench a parched mouth, the experience will be more like eating a juicy piece of fruit. Soothing. As an added bonus all this cool water flowing from his mouth down to his digestive system will give him fresh breath. His licks will be fresh as a baby's. As for the tummy part, not an issue. The acid level in a dog's stomach is strong enough to give you a second degree burn.  Processing a few chunks of frozen meat is kid's stuff.
Cats are however, another story. Felines tend to be flesh rippers and tearers. They aren't generally too keen about chowing down on a frozen piece of meat. Nothing wrong with this, simply take out the meat a couple hours before feeding time and thaw it out a bit in the fridge. If kitty eats it semi-thawed, that's still good for his teeth. And if he will only eat it completely thawed, than so be it. At least he's eating fresh meat and he'll benefit from the purity of the product and high moisture content as well.
Go ahead take that leap of cold faith, after all, we are Canadians!
Peufiner le régime cru de son animal

Établir le régime cru de son chien ou son chat est un travail qui nécessite du temps et de la patience. Ce n'est pas seulement de choisir quelques protéines, des abats, des os à grignoter ou des légumes. C'est de savoir ce qui est le mieux pour votre animal.
Par exemple, un chien active devrait manger un peu plus de viandes grasses tandis qu'un chien en surpoids devrait consommer plus de viandes maigres. Un chiot ou un chaton devrait manger deux fois plus qu'un adulte tout simplement parce qu'il grandit! Certains chiens ont besoin de plus de légumes, mais les chats ne voudront rien savoir. Il y a même des animaux aux prises avec des allergies ou qui en développent avec l'âge qui se porteront mieux avec leur nouveau régime composé de viande rouge maigre.
Une fois par jour
Monday, 27 January 2014 15:56
À tous les jours, la même question: «Combien de fois par jour devrais-je nourrir mon chien avec du cru?»
«Tout dépend! S'il s'agit d'un chiot, et bien, continuez de le nourrir 3 fois par jour ou plus. Plus jeune votre chien est, plus souvent vous devez le nourrir. Mais, autour d'un an, je recommande qu'une seule fois.»
«Une fois par jour??»
Je peux voir l'incertitude dans leurs yeux.
«Je le nourris 2 fois par jour depuis X nombre d'années.»
Depuis que j'ai des chiens matures, je les nourris une fois au matin. Et je ne suis pas le seul! Je me rappelle très bien l'éleveur de qui j'ai adopté mon labrador me demander sincèrement: «Pourquoi le nourrirais-tu plus d'une fois par jour?»
Bien oui, pourquoi?
Vive la liberté! Vive le cru!

2balanced raw diet for dogs

Je pourrais tomber facilement dans le mélodrame avec cette métaphore du régime aux biscuits mais cèest ce qui mèa inspiré pour ce billet.

Voici ce qui se passe: À chaque jour, vous n'avez qu'un seul choix de repas. Des biscuits. Pas les biscuits décadents aux brisures de chocolat ultra savoureux trempé dans le chocolat noir. NON. Vous savez les biscuits secs qu'on achète parce qu'on veut garder sa ligne? Oui, oui! Ceux là! Les biscuits secs, pas trop goûteux, remplis de bonnes fibres et qui n'imbibent même pas le lait quand on les trempe. Exactement. Vous rêvez que vous pouvez vous délecter de ces biscuits au chocolat! Chaque jour, on vous sert les biscuits plates. C'est la même chose pour votre chien. Bon, certains me diront que les chiens ne mangent pas de biscuits au chocolat… Certes. Mais pour eux, les biscuits plates et soi-disant 'santé', ce sont les croquettes. Toujours la même chose, le même goût. Parlez-moi d'une vie plate sans saveur!
Tweaking the Raw Diet
Wednesday, 15 January 2014 21:55


Getting your dog or cat's raw diet right is a work in progess. It's not just about selecting a few different protein and organ meats, meaty bones and veggies, it's also a question of what works for your pet.

For example, an active dog should get a diet that's higher in fat, while an overweight dog needs lean meats. A puppy or kitten should consume proportionally double the typical serving that an adult dog or cat requires. He's growing quickly so it only makes sense. Some dogs need more veggies, while cats don't eat them at all.  Some dogs have issues with organ meat. And then there are the dogs and cats with allergies (which usually do better on lean red meats), some even develop allergies as they age.

The point is, a diet should not be set in stone. It evolves and the best way to find the optimal diet for your pet is by trying out a variety of products. Like people, dogs and cats have their own preferences; there may be no ryhme or reason why they like one meat over another. They just do.

Sometimes a dog or cat will love a certain product for an extended period and then suddenly stop eating it one day. I've had that happen with my dog. He went through a period where he was crazy about lamb, then suddenly stopped eating it. After about a month I reintroduced it and he ate it with gusto. You may also have to adjust the quantities that you feed your pet based on his weight. You want to be able to feel a dog's ribs, you want him lean and hard. Fortunately most raw-feeders understand this process and gently tweak their pets' diets as time progresses. There's a learning curve to getting it right and with a little patience you will understand what works best for your pet.

Recreational Bones for Dogs
Thursday, 28 November 2013 21:51
Since we can't say it any better, we'd like to share with you this great article about bones (from dogsnaturally.com):
Recreational Bones For Dogs
As much as we love our dogs and try to provide a loving environment for them, most dogs suffer from boredom. This often makes meal time the highlight of the dog’s day, but with many dogs, meals last only seconds then it’s back to looking for something to do.
One way you can help your dog fight boredom is to provide him with a recreational bone every now and again. Bones are not only a healthy snack for dogs, but they are great entertainment. For a dog, ripping into a nice bone is the same as us relaxing with an interesting book: it’s a relaxing way to spend some time.
The type of bone you choose will depend largely on your dog’s size and chewing habits. When choosing a recreational bone for your dog, consider the following.
Types of Bones
There are two types of bones:  long bones and flat bones. Long bones are the bones that are normally found in the legs and wings of animals.  These bones are made for weight bearing and subsequently have a hard, smooth surface and a center filled with loads of marrow.  The ends of these bones are soft and cartilagenous.
Flat bones are the bones found in the spinal column, ribs, pelvis and shoulder.  They are softer than long bones and don’t contain as much marrow.  They also have more convoluted surfaces.
Sources Of Bones
The size of the animal (and the dog) determines how edible the bone is.  In general, recreational bones are an addition to a balanced diet so the dog shouldn’t be consuming the entire bone (that would be a boney meal).  Bones from cows, moose and other large animals are generally good for large, aggressive chewers and most dogs would be able to strip the meat off but not consume the entire bone.  Bones from smaller animals such as deer, goats, pigs and lamb can be consumed by larger dogs but not by smaller breeds.  Poultry bones are mostly edible for all sizes of dogs.
