My dog and relatives dogs have 'much' better health since recently starting this Barf diet. Some are old with cancer, arthritis, bowel problems, and in one healthy skinny younger dog a refusal to eat kibble. This book explains things so well, "very" easy to read, gives the 'whys' and 'how to-s', and much information you need. Dr. Billinghurst, veterinarian, is many years educated on dogs, his life's work...I saw his website with raw products and saw he gives online consultations for your dogs.
"Raw" - "meaty bones" are critical to dogs health I learned and will not hurt them, they would us humans but not dogs who are built differently. COOKED BONES ARE DANGEROUS!! Some raw beef bones 'not' good for many dogs, they're too HARD, but Raw chicken/duck wings and some others are good, also for older/sick dogs. Finicky dogs hooked on any commercial foods may need mincing raw 'meaty' bones in blender/grinder, or other tricks. Exactly what to feed and how is in the book in detail. There is even a section on proper vegetarian feeding and why its better than commercial cooked foods. Author gives all types of diets/ingredients and the pros and cons of each one. Book is one of best investments I've made, and cheap.
Kibble = McDonald's for dogs. Read and learn and make informed decisions whichever way you decide to go.
I believe the most prudent advice that I see is when bones (not raw meaty bones, but the bone content) make up about 10% of the diet...and with chicken necks and backs, these are very bone dense. Mary Strauss at dogaware.com has some excellent, accessible information.
Nevertheless, it is an accessible. And while he says that there is not scientific formula to help you in how much to feed your dogs, there indeed is a scientific formula. It can be found at the Ohio State University lab: http://vet.osu.edu/vmc/basic-calorie-calculator Just as humans have a need for minimum calories to support biologic functions, so do dogs.
