I would feed the meat raw. Wow, more questions than I thought. Sorry!
Sabine makes EACH dogs recipie based on THAT specific dog and his/her requirements (size, activity level, etc) AND she also asks what YOUR prefrences are regarding feeding. One of them being raw.
yes, she actually sent me the link for each supplement as I had a hard time finding them while I was ordering.
as far as the meat and the prep that is up to how much work YOU want to do and what Sabine recommends.
When I did the questionairre, I knew what she was allergic to and how much time I realistically had. I wanted something as 'easy' as possibly because I knew this was something I would be doing for the rest of her life and if it was too hard, too involved I don't know that I would have been able to stick with it...

lol, ya ironically Tillie will actually eat anything. She is NOT picky what so ever. I do this for her health. We'd love to have Hanna over for a dinner date!!

yeah I might add, the supplements she recommends are always top quality and or human grade. Keep in mind ,there is little to no regulations in pet food suppliments while there is rigid standards in human grade suppliments.

hi Suzi, depends on what you're feeding your dog. Common ones are EFA's and probiotics.

lol, my husband says the same thing frequently. lol
ALTHOUGH tonight when I was telling him about the price break down I did on here earlier he actually said, "Only the best for our girl" .... awwww

As for the supplements, Sabine bases on what each dog needs individually, I am always amazed at how very different every dogs diet is from her! It's crazy!!

Wow, you are a great dog mom! I wouldn't trust myself to ensure all the nutritional needs were being met. That's a lot of research you've done. And you must be very organized Tammy

Although when Bucky had a cold (stuffed up, sneezing, looking like he felt just miserable) my chicken noodle soup did the trick.
