When feeding your pet a raw diet, it’s important to recognize that there are many different kinds of raw foods.

Raw Meaty Bones

When we talk about raw meaty bones, we’re talking about chicken necks, turkey necks, chicken backs and similar foods. Raw meaty bones are packed with vitamins and minerals. They should make up 30 to 50 percent of a pet’s total diet, or possibly a little more if the parts you feed have a great deal more meat than bone (e.g., whole chickens or rabbits).

Organ Meat

Organ meats like heart, liver, lungs, and kidneys have been used in pet foods for years, but they have gained more recent recognition as rich sources of nutrients, possibly because of their inclusion in raw food diets. They are technically considered by-products, but they are good by-products and should be viewed as excellent sources of protein.

Freeze Dried and Dehydrated Foods

Freeze-dried and dehydrated pet foods maintain the nutritional properties of raw food with the convenience of feeding a pre-packaged manufactured pet food. Freeze drying and dehydrating keep the foods rich in vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants and amino acids that any living thing needs in order to remain strong, healthy and resilient to disease. The end product contains the raw foods’ natural color, flavor, and aroma, which shows that it still contains life.

Grinds

Ground raw foods like Oma’s Pride are excellent and economical bulk raw pet food options. These foods are great for pets who have restricted diets or need a tailored vitamin and mineral intake, as pet owners can customize these foods with their own supplements and fruits/vegetables.
