Feeding Your Carnivore

"Abstain from vegetables and grains"

Page by page you've read about prey feeding your carnivore from the Intoroduction to the Specie Differences to the Taxonomy Classifaction for the domestic dog and you have arrived at the Feeding Your Carnivore page.

It REALLY is not difficult to feed a prey model diet. It's a win-win for you and your dog; the dogs digestive system is perfectly designed for it and you have a no-fuss, no-preparation feeding program.

Feldjaeger With Precision a.k.a. Swanky, has the starring role in the following video clip.



The reason why it is so easy, you just hand your dog what ever it is you will feed for that meal and it's a 'done deal'.

Swanky also appears in the following images while eating pork belly for lunch 12th March 2010.

Just a few things to keep in mind until you get use to this feeding style:

  • Try and replicate nature; this is to mean to try and give your carnivore, as close as possible, the ration of bone to organ to meat. This does NOT have to happen with every meal but nrather over a period of 7 to 10 days. To work that ratio out think of a rabbit, now think of the amount of bone that rabbit has compared to the amount of organs and to the amount of meat. Easy when you break it down like that.
  • DO NOT fall in the trap of feeding chicken and more chicken. Sure chicken is allowed but chickens are mostly raised on growth hormones and all sorts of anti-biotics, your carnivore does not need any of that unless you purchase free range chicken meat guaranteed to be free of all chemicals.
  • Weight baring bones can be dangerous. These bones are very dense and will break of in sharp slithers and cause harm. These bones are the leg bones of cows, deer, goat. Soft bones such as rib bones, necks, tail are ideal.
  • Your adult carnivore does NOT need bone as often as a growing puppy. Adults should get bones about once a month otherwise you will risk wearing down their teeth too much and expose the nerve root especially if you fall into the trap of giving them a big leg bone to 'keep them busy'.
