Why not just buy at the grocery store, cut into portions and freeze. I am not being smart alecky, I just don't get buying raw dog meat that has been frozen. Do they add any vitamins or anything to the frozen product? I haven't seen any because the nearest pet store is over a 100 miles from here. I just give Rosie raw meat that I cut up into bite size pieces. If I am cooking I give her what we are eating or what I have put up for her. But I also leave out kibble for her to self-feed. I worry about the vitamins and the kibble has them added. You can always tell if Rosie had bone to eat as the poop is white or nearly white. I read somewhere that feral dogs had white poop because of the bones they ate that are in the little animals they eat. UGH.
That is a good question Lucile. I like the K9 Naturals because it is easy, convenient and has all these ingredients in it - meat, blood, ground bone, seasonal fruits and vegetables, heart, liver, kidney, green tripe, eggs, garlic
and Green Lipped mussel. I don't have to worry about balancing out the diet, and feel that this is a high quality product that I feel comfortable with. The pet store that I get this product from is close by so it is convenient for me. I have a supplement called good digestion, but have not used it since I switched to raw as it seems to be balanced, and the digestion issues have gone away.
I am sure it would probably be less expensive if I got the ingredients and mixed it myself, but I like the convenience of the premixed food. Since I only have one havanese, the cost is not too bad. If I had a large dog, I might re-assess the pre-packaged raw.
And, yes, Murphy's poop sometimes is white as they add ground bone. I am happy it is ground - I always inspect the food and so far have not found large chunks of bone. I have seen chunks of veges though!
