Here is an example of a raw meal that I feed:

http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts/recipe/883639/2?nc=1&autosave=form.info.autosave

And here is another:

http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts/recipe/883639/2?nc=1&autosave=form.info.autosave

The Ca:P ratio is lower than you see in standard food because the website cannot account for the Ca level in chicken bone so it balances out. The other thing is that not each ingredient is exactly what I feed but it's the closest they list so I have a pretty good idea of what I'm feeding nutritionally.

Cost - usually can get a whole chicken for $0.79 per lb. Chicken thighs for $0.89/lb on sale. Ground beef runs about $1.89/lb so that is typically fed less. Eggs - during the summer I can get them for free from my brother's chickens and they're "homegrown" so nothing added, basically free range fed. A couple bucks per unit of everything else but it lasts quite awhile and I mix it up between fresh and frozen fruits and veggies.

Amount - typically 1-1.5lb per feeding twice a day so 2-3lbs. per day = 60-90lbs per mo. I have still found it cheaper than paying $50 per 35lb bag of food that she doesn't even eat and has horrible loose stools and a lot of it.

Location - Upstate NY. Availability - any grocery store, do have a butcher distributor closeby that I need to get to so my price goes down and so I can get some organ meat that she needs.

VERY satisfied because her coat just shines now and almost no shedding at all. She's happy and healthy and actually eats her food instead of being anorexic on dog food.

Last week she got rabbit hearts, lungs, and kidneys. She gets squirrels whole, meat, bone, and internals when I shoot them. She has had venison also. Wild game saves on cost as well.
