Home Raw Feeding Feeding Puppies Weaning Puppies to Raw Fifth Week on Raw

8 weeks of Age

The pups are approaching the time to go to their new homes so I start changing them to 2 -3 meals per day.  I send each puppy home with a description of their diet plan so their new owners can continue feeding raw without any problems.  I also include sources for the items they will need.

For large breed puppies I increase the multi-vitamin dosage to the recommended dose (double what I described above).  With small breed puppies I wait until they are 3 months old to increase the dosage.

 

The puppies remain on the basic formula:


45% Raw Meaty Bones, 50% Muscle Meat and 5% Organ Meat


When using Green tripe:


45% Raw Meaty Bones, 30% Muscle Meat, 20% Green Tripe and 5% Organ Meat

 

I provide 5 or more different protein sources each week for the puppies and supplement with a basic multi-vitamin and Omega 3 oils.


While my puppies do not get fruit, vegetables or any carbs as a normal part of their diet I do occasionally offer them these as treats.  I make sure that it doesn't impact their diet (meaning I don't give them large amounts).
