Some time ago someone posted a recipe made for their dog , made with liver etc.......cannot find it
Molly is doing great with the raw diet but believe it or not I think she gets bored with it so thought I would like to give her different food items

Scroll to bottom of this page, there's a couple recipes.

Off the top of my head ours was;

10lb raw ground
1 large box Total cereal (what kind will depend on if they are allergic)
10 eggs with shells
One large box oatmeal
1 jar wheat germ (we used flaxmeal)
1 1/4 cup veggie oil
1 1/4 cup molasses
10 envelopes unflavored gelatin
about a Tblspoon salt

we threw eggs whole into blender & let it rip

divide into 10 quart size freezer bags

After awhile this got to be more expensive than what we were feeding before.

THANK YOU SOUNDS AWESOME
Except when you say a bag of this what size as I usually get a ten lb bag from Costco cannot wait to make some wonder what it would be like if I used chopped up liver? Or beef heat, as a have about fifty fifty lb of each for the dogs

back when I first started with raw, I made this mash for my dog, courtesy of Newcastle Boxers. I've substituted the lean ground meat for offal.

2.5 lbs. Vegetables (pulped/mashed)
1 lb. Ground lean meat
1/2 cup nonfat, plain yogurt
1/2 cup cottage cheese (or 2-3 raw, whole eggs including shells)
2 T. Garlic powder
2-3 T. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (with bits floating in it)*
I mix this up on the weekends. I run the veggies through the meat grinder (weight is the pulped amount, and then mix in the meat etc. I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the mixture into muffin tins (1 measuring cup per muffin) and put them in the freezer until they're solid. The "muffins" are then popped out of the tins (soak the bottom of the tin in a bit of hot water for about 30 seconds to loosen) and stored in freezer bags.

Im feeding five small dogs and three large dogs... when they are on kibbles...they have skin problems and are too fat...The big dogs get 3 pounds raw chicken each...I watch their weight and if they get to lean we up the amount..this time of year we like to add more since its so cold...for our little dogs who are in house..I wont feed raw in the house, so this winter they get cooked...I cook 10 pounds of chicken until super soft...add cooked to moosh brown rice and mixed veggies...I add flax seed and egg, shell and all...blend it all up and each get 1 cup a day..again watching who needs more and who needs less ...
My vet had my dog on boiled potatos, tuna and kidney beans ...she was not able to nurse off mom and had all kinds of issues..her first year was this diet...until she could handle other things...
I like to change up the diet from time to time too...
they already look better..on kibbles they had ichy skin, hot spots, bad breath!, bad gas, rashes, Our old lady had bald spots with scabby junk...now they are look and acting so much better...COme warmer months the little dogs will go back on raw...and since we are incubating our own eggs...we hope for enough roosters to feed the crew..lol..Sounds so mean!! lol Right now a friend supplies us with her over stock roosters..works out great..now if we can only get this going so we dont have to buy meat when roosters are not avaiable...:greengrin:

For a cheap, but still good raw diet for medium sized dogs:
1/2 chicken breast
1 soft boiled egg
1 cup rice
1/2 multi vitamin per dog every other day (the multi vitamin is so they don't miss an vitamins or essential trace minerals that they don't get in the raw diet, I'd especially recommend giving the mutil vitamin with the cheaper raw diets. You can go to walmart and get a big bottle for adults really cheap)
(to prevent the dogs from leaving the vitamin at the bottom you can put it in a tiny ball of lard)

For a diet that is more complete:
1 cup rice (filler- carbs, energy, etc) (if you give more meats, you can leave out the rice)
1 thigh or breast of chicken per medium sized dog (nuitrients and calcium)
2 ounces of oils (these can be from cooked meats, and add it to the rice- for healthy coat, skin, etc)
1 large spoonful of plain yougurt for calcium, fat, and probiotics (Keifer is better if you have it)
1 soft boiled egg
3 tbs juiced vegetable pulp (you may also alternate daily or every other day with a fruit blend)
Small ball of lard for vitamins to stick to
Half a multi vitamin per dog every other day of the week

What the veggies consist of: (This will give you enough to feed a bit more than 10 dogs)
5 sticks celery
1 tomato
1/3 Potato
1/6 Malanga root
1/6 Ginger root
1/6 Yuka root
1/6 Jicama root
1/2 Habanero pepper
1/2 Jalapeno pepper
1/4 bag collard greens
1/4 bag mustrad greens
2-3 Brussel sprouts
1 clove Garlic
1/2 a Cayenne pepper
1 head of Broccoli
1 head of Cauliflower
4 sticks of Asparagus
2 Raddishs
3-4 Carrots
Now, you can run it threw a veggie chopper or a juicer. With the juicer, you can use the veggies twice; you drink the juice and feed them the pulp. You can save it in the refigerator, and feed 2-3 tbs of the pulp per dog. It's easier if you do them according to what they are, like chop the roots first, then scrape that out and chop the veggies, then do the greens. Mix well.

Fruit:
Blueberries
Strawberries
Apples
Melons
Raspberries
etc
(Chop, blend or juice like with the veggies.)

The Meats & Proteins:
1 thigh of chicken per med. sized dog (leave the bones in, they are essential for the needed calcium and extra nutrients, the can get rickets when you feed raw, without the bones)
1 soft boiled egg (put eggs in room temp water, boil for 2 minutes, remove from heat and run under cold water immediatly to cool them down. You want the whites cooked, and the yolk raw/still gooey and runny)
1 heaping tablespoon of plain yogurt
Optional: 2tbs of keifer
Optional: 2 oz Beef liver
Optional: 2 oz Chicken gizard/giblets/organs
Optional: 2 oz Tripe (this is animal intestines)

If you are feeding puppies:
1 egg
1 chicken leg, breast, whichever (chopped accordingly to their bone crushing capabilities and their size)
1/4 cup rice
1 large spoonfull yougurt
2 tbs veggie pulp
1/4 multi vitamin per puppy, less if they are still pretty little
(All together that would feed one 12 week old, medium size breed of dog, or it could feed a small litter of young pups)

Hopefully I covered everything :)
