Our Best Friends Eat Organic

Our two huskies thrive on a organic raw meat diet. The larger one is twelve and the smaller one is a year old. Ever since two of our other huskies died at a fairly young ages of cancer we switched to making our own dog food.
Their diet consists mainly of organic raw chicken necks which they eat whole. Every so often I give them free range ground beef. I buy my chicken in a 40 lb box. When working with the raw meat I always wear disposable gloves. The chicken is put into zip lock bags and frozen until needed. The box costs $40.00 and is enough to make meals for one month. They get whatever organic vegis we are having, sometimes cooked, but mostly raw. I top of the meal with a sprinkle of Healthy Powder which consists of ground up egg shells (baked), nutritional yeast, kelp powder, ground flaxseed and a small amount of vitamin C. This recipe is in the book Natural Health for Dogs and Cats by Richard H. Pitcairn.
There are excellent recipes in the book. Dog Biscuits Deluxe is their favorite biscuit recipe. I would be happy to answer any questions and comments.

What beautiful dogs. I tried a homemade diet with both my Husky and my husky mix but I couldn't afford to keep up at it. They eat Castor and Pollux now and get the occasional slab of organic chicken, eggs, and brown rice. Kudos to you and your beautiful huskies!

Your friends are lovely. :) Is this when I say that BARF rocks? We had to drop the B part after our girl started having dental problems, but it's truly a great dietary plan. said...

Beautiful Dogs. What is the best way to start the natural food diet? Where can I get the minnerals and nutrients not in the chicken? What about Salmon for them? Is that okay?
