My Yorki-poo has an itching problem so 2 months ago we switched from Science Diet to grain free Blue kibbles. We also give him Skin -Eez supplements. Nothing has seemed to help much. We were told that many dogs have aperture to beef, corn and rice. You must not agree, as I see the recipe you posted is beef, rice, eggs. Do you think I should start feeding the yeast starvation diet, and after some time introduce the easy raw diet? I want to help the little guy! Thanks in advance.

Yes start off with the “yeast starvation dog food recipe”, click here to view. After the yeast infection is gone slowly add some white rice. If it flares back up cut out the rice and then only feed the raw meat, bones eggs and supplements.

Looking forward to reading your intermediate and advanced recipes. I fed raw many years ago, incorporating turkey necks and tripe and sooo many supplements. I eventually switched to premium kibble but I think I’m ready to try raw again. Our dogs were the healthiest EVER on raw. I now have two senior dogs and a puppy who would all benefit. The easy version looks like a great starting point but I’m curious to see what’s in the other recipes and how/if they are better.

When I click on easy raw recipe, I get an error response. When I click on intermediate and advanced raw, I get “coming soon”. Would you be willing to send me the raw recipe? My biggest problem is money. I cannot afford to feed my 3 border collies as much meat as I’d like, so need some tips on how to stretch the food. I currently use SOJOS, and also give human superfoods each day: I sprinkle dulse, 1 tablespoon of hemp seed and chia, 1 t of Dr. Sheridan (herbalist) vitamineral green, 1 spon of E-3 live (an algae), 1 tsp of MRM matrix (mushrooms), a serving a freshly ground flax seed (gold and brown mixed) which I ground with egg shells. I sometimes I give liquid minerals (concentrace trace mineral drops), also collustrum (by Biostar), and fresh garlic, too.
One of my border collies has a bad case of pannus (autoimmune disease of the eye), and that is the other concern – It’s not under control, and I’ve gone through the “western” vet treatment. I am trying to strengthen and balance her immune system. She was on 8 drops (steroid, tacrolimus and experimental) each day. The vets say maybe the next step is radiation to her eye. I declined. I am in the process of taking her off the drops, except the experimental ones, to which I committed until October 2012. Now she is on 4 drops per day (2 experimental, 1 steroid, 1 tacrolimus).
That’s all for now. I would appreciate any information, recipes, ideas to stretch out my dollar and also, any ideas about the pannus. I am not asking for medical advice. Testimonials, what others have tried, etc.
Thank you for your time,

I’m not sure why you are getting an error response, click here for the easy raw dog food recipe. I’ve not written the intermediate recipes yet, I just can’t seem to carve out the time.

When I initially began researching raw meat recipes last week, you had an advanced raw meat diet posted (which incorporated bones and parts); you’ve since taken those down and all I can see are blog posts – why was it taken down? I’ve begun with the Easy raw recipe including Dinovite and Lick-O-Chops and my dog has responded well, but I believe raw bones are needed for teeth development and to satisfy chewing instinct. Can you pls provide the previously-posted Advanced recipe?

It must have been a different site because I’ve not taken any pages down. I have shot a raw chicken with bones recipe and will post it soon.

I need some advise. I am switching my 10 yr old pitt mix to a raw diet due to nasal allergies. I like the easy raw diet recipe but what can I use instead of the rice for a dog with such allergies? I know I can eliminate it but would like to substitute with something else if possible.
Love the site lots and lots of useful info.

You can eliminate the rice or swap it out with sweet potatoes.

I have started to feed my two dobies (3 and 2) raw food and what a big difference. Now due to the cost of raw food, I’m thinking of doing it myself. What I need to know is the tools that I require to get myself started. Can you give me a list of those tools. thank you

Here are the tools I use to make dog food. I also sometimes use this meat grinder but it is not a must have item.
