Need Advice on Raw Diet
I've recently switched my 6-year-old, 6lb Yorkie mix to a raw diet, and I'm having some trouble finding any information about what cuts of beef and pork a tiny pooch can safely eat. She's allergic to chicken, and even though she loves it, I need to switch her to something else.
Thank you for your time

You can pretty much just use any cut you like, as long as not excessively fatty.

Hi, 20% fat is recommended target for raw diets. For me, I try to target a bit less, maybe 15%, since yorkies are more susceptible to pancreatitis than other breeds.
And don't give any weight bearing bones (legs) as the bones are harder and can damage their teeth.
