Patties: Monthly Meal Plan
This Sample Monthly Meal Plan provides pet owners with an example of a well balanced monthly schedule, using ground foods. The Totally Raw Ground Dinners achieve balance in every meal. Each dinner includes muscle meats, organs and natural bones, based on the principles of the whole prey model.
Offer whole, natural, raw bones weekly. Bones are necessary for optimal oral health. Not only are bones great for clean and healthy teeth and gums, but they also provide hours of enjoyment and essential minerals. Always supervise your pet when they are enjoying bones.

*Totally Raw does not advocate the use of weight bearing bones (marrow bones). Weight-bearing bones are much too hard and place undue stress on teeth. This could lead to fractures or premature wearing of the dentition.
Sample Monthly Menu: Puppy
At eight weeks of age, a pup should be eating at least three meals a day. At seven months, his feeding regime can be reduced to two feedings, and at one year, decreased to one daily meal. This schedule is a guide only; smaller breeds achieve their full size at a younger age than larger breeds. As a result, smaller breeds can reduce the frequency of meals sooner than larger breeds. Often pups the size of Cairn Terriers will be eating one meal per day by the time they are seven months old while a Mastiff pup will eat two meals until one year of age or older.
Raw food produces slow, even growth without the spikes seen in kibble fed puppies. Stable growth patterns support the healthy growth of the skeleton and reduce growth-related problems such as hip dysplasia.
