Muscle Meat - To be fed at 80% of the daily allowance
Within your DIY diet you need to feed 80% made up of the below. All Boneless items can be found here
Normally available whole, so will require you to cut into smaller chunks within the daily allowance.
Smaller chunks which can be fed. (very little prep needed when feeding)
Best to feed whole or cut down the middle to avoid choking (Trachea is cartilage, however some dogs may digest this as a bone, so best to poo watch). We feed this at least weekly, with high levels of natural chondroitin and glucosamine, helping to maintain joints, whilst providing a nice natural teeth cleaner.
Meaty Boneless Chunks
TDB come in nice chunky slabs, with their motto being you can always cut smaller but not bigger. MVM chunks are smaller and come in cubes.
A nice tougher piece of meat. Ideal to feed to dogs who may struggle with whole bones, but need a chewy meal to aid teeth cleaning. Feed whole or cut smaller to your dogs feeding requirements.
A sponge like consistency. Lung can be quite rich for some dogs, so best to be fed in moderation up to 20% of the muscle meat allowance.
Heart (Mince or Chunks)
Heart is classed as a muscle meat not offal when raw feeding. Like Lung, Heart can be quite rich and therefore should be fed up to 20% of muscle meat. Ox TDB Heart are large chunks, Pork and Lamb are slightly smaller, but may still require being cut smaller. Chicken and Duck are small manageable pieces and require little prep (in most cases)
Normally Lamb or Ox, although tripe contains lots of nutrients for your dog, tripe should be fed at up to 30% of the diet. Tripe is also classed as a different protein to the beef/lamb meat.
A good option for those who would rather not cut up meat, and are available in lots of different mixes too. Perfect to be added into Kong’s or Lickimats for enrichment as part of the daily feeding routine.
