10-week-old Pomeranian

I am the proud owner of Chee-Chee, a wolf-sable pomeranian. He is 10 weeks old. I have been leaving available some kibble. But I have also provided canned food from purina. Most recently I have read that a raw diet is healthy for dogs. I personally like to take every recommendation with "a grain of salt", so to speak. So as part of the diet I feed my puppy a couple spoonfuls of raw beef meat. He loves it!!! But I am hesitant to go strictly to raw meat as the primary food source. Do you think my variety is all right? His fecal matter looks dark and firm.

Really to be honest, you dont need to feed raw food. Kibble is fine. Raw food carries risk with it if not made up right. If you really are thinking about it though, talk to your vet about what would be good. Some dogs dont take to it well, even if they enjoy eating it their systems don't like it. Take care if you decide to do it.

There are those who are firm believers that raw is the only way to go when feeding your dog. Before deciding I would do a lot of research and talk to your vet, if not done correctly it can end up being harmful instead of helpful. Raw diets do best with very active and competitive dogs because of the amount of proteins, etc it contains.

I have personally always feed a well balanced diet of regular, quality dog food and all my pets have been perfectly healthy, happy, and had no problems.

Thumbs up Dehydrated Raw Dog Food

If you aren't sure about going completely raw, you should try "The Honest Kitchen". Their food is Dehydrated Raw Dog Food. It comes in a powder form with all Human Grade Ingredients, no by-products or filler etc. All you do is add warm water to 1 cup of food. You wait about 10 minutes and, presto, you have moist food. It's safe since it's been dehydrated. I've been giving this food, ever since the dogfood recall, to both my min pins and they are doing great

I used to feed one of my Yorkies half-half between raw and kibble but herd that it's not good to mix them. Although there is no proof of that, I stopped mixing because my dog spit out the kibble and ate the raw part. So I gave him all raw and he became picky about kind of meat. So I gave up and now I feed him only kibbles. Anyway, if you prefer feeding raw, make sure that the food contains all of the nutrition that Chee-Chee needs. There are a few brands in the market that prepare raw meat with vegetables and you can just thaw and feed your dogs.

mix and match is OK just not in the same meal.
