Hi there,

I've just started feeding a raw diet to my golden retriever and after a lot of research i've come up with what i think is a complete diet. I'd be interested in any comments or possible improvements.

50% RMBs (incl chicken frames, veal bones, beef brisket and lamb breast bones)
20% Raw meat (incl beef, horse, fish, chicken and heart)
5% Liver
5% Kidney
15% Green tripe, vegies and fruit
5% Eggs and dairy

Cheers

I can predict some solid cement poops with that diet. Half bones is too high and 10% offal wont be enough to balance it out. I would suggest dropping your bone content to 30, upping your meat to 30 and bringing up your offal up a bit.
I wouldnt really focus on dairy as part of the diet at all, they get a lot of calcium from their bones. Any diary products really wont digest.
