    Hey so I'm from the states and I've been raw feeding Bax for 3ish years. I'm looking for a supplier for raw though because I just don't feel like I've been doing raw justice. (he gets half a chicken thigh and half a cup of frozen peas every day and his poos are normal and hes holding at a healthy weight). I'd like to branch out (cheaply) into other meats and try to get some organ in there. (I can't find liver around here for the life of me).

    Anyone know of any raw suppliers that's either US based or ships to the states?

    Do your supermarkets sell "economy" human grade minces or meats in their freezer sections (this is fine to use). To help keep your little dogs diet a bit more nutritious and balanced you should try to offer different animal meat types, raw bones, (chicken bones are very good), gristle and fat are all good parts of a raw diet and you do not have to be precise every day. Offal, including some liver should be included. Do your supermarkets not sell raw liver?
    Do your pet stores not sell frozen raw meat for pets?
    It sounds as if your dog is only small, you would not need much liver each week. Take care when you do find a supply as too much in one feed can cause very runny poo's.

    I have just "Googled" Raw Dog Food Suppliers in the USA. (Primal Pooch) is one. There are quiet a few.
    I am sure someone nearer to you will be able to help with your raw needs.

    Yeah our supermarkets dont generally sell liver and our dog stores dont as a rule sell raw. bax does get bone though! every other day he gets a chicken thigh bone.


    I was hoping to find one of those places that sells a prepackaged mix so i dont have to do all the prep....

    Going through the Primal Pooch site, I found this supplier pretty much at random: Raw Chicken Dinner for Dogs - 5lb Case They're complete mixes, so you can just blob out the right amount of meat, and a bit of chicken leg (or wing if you can find them) and you're done:)
