Raw Feeding Red and White Meats

February 27, 2018

When it comes to raw feeding some do not always see passed chicken as a protein source but there tons of more proteins that raw feeders can feed their companions. A good rule of thumb is, provide lots of variety. This is important for not only preventing boredom with your companions but also providing a variance in nutrients. All meat, organs and bones have different nutrient profiles. When you follow the ideal ratio of 80% muscle meat, 5% liver, 5% other secreting organ and 10% bone as well as rotate proteins, you provide a complete diet to your companion that they truly can thrive on.

 

This rule of thumb also applies to providing a variety of red and white meats. According to the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) red meat is classified by the myoglobin levels which is typically higher than 65%. Anything lower is classified as white meat (1,2)
