Basic raw recipe
Does anyone have a basic raw recipe they can share? I find them for big dogs and I want to make a smaller batch. Do you give extra supplements or vitamins if you home cook? What kind and how much?
I've spent hours on the net doing research. Want to hear from people who really do this and what recipes they use! thanks!

Here is ours!!
I usually double the batch:
1/2 lb lean ground beef (80% or leaner)
2 can sardines (or canned salmon of the same weight)
1 cup cooked rice
1/2 c. veg of choice (spinach, carrots, etc.)
2 large eggs (slightly cooked)
3/4 tablespoon bone meal
1/2 teaspoon potassium
1 tablespoon safflower oil
= 1569 calories
I find the sardines rather smelly - so I substitute 4 oz of cottage cheese or ground turkey (I usually do both!). My hubby hunts, so I sometimes replace the hamburger with deerburger. Do not substitute ground pork. Since I removed the sardines (a very important ingredient), then I squeeze a fish oil caplet every other day over her breakfast. I also add 1/3 childrens multivitamin daily (the ones without artificial sweetener). Feel free to add 1 oz of liver to the batch - its good for them. All human grade products.
I get the bone meal and potassium from iherb.com.
I first made a batch without all the supplements - just to see if Bailey liked it. SHE LOVED IT - so its been this recipe ever since!
I serve one spoonful per serving (the larger spoons) twice a day. It doesnt seem like much - I know. I store it in 10 oz plastic containers about 3/4 full in the freezer- one container lasts about 3 days.
Tip: I put the raw eggs in the hot rice and let it sit a while (hence partially cooked eggs)
