    This follows on from Part 1

    Here are the rest of the photos

    If anyone knows how I can get them all on the one post please let me know and I'll move them.

    Unfortunately the memory card became full so I couldn't get video of her actually crunching and eating the bone at the end.

    She seemed to really enjoy it and I was amazed!

    Tea tonight was half a chicken fillet.

    So today she's had 85gms drumstick and approx 75gms breast fillet. It really didn't seem very much for her tea and although I gave it to her in one piece it was gone in less than 2 minutes :eek:.

    Do you think that is enough for a 5kg dog? See - I'm worrying again.

    Her normal food is approx 100g Naturediet mixed with a 100ml glass full of Burns mini bites twice a day.

    I'm doing another raw day tomorrow then back to the commercial food for a couple of days and will alternate as I must use up the other food.

    Sounds like an ample amount of food, remember a dog will use everything they get from a raw diet, nothing goes to waste, unlike in dry/commerical dog foods, which are bulked out with cereals and needless ingredients- hence you don't need to feed as much raw food as you would dry/commerical food to get the same amount of nutrition ;)

    As I said on ''part one'', lovely pics. It's great to see a dog tucking into real grub.

    Great pics,
    Im sure thats fine :) like sixstar said shes getting a lot more use from it. :)

    She's eating it so fast cos she's loving it !! (the breast) obv its nice watching them enjoy the bones, if you go up a few posts from the end of the raw feeding sticky youll see willow enjoying a turkey drumstick. :)

    She looks like she's enjoying it that's why she's eating it so fast too. She's getting enough food you feed 2-3% of their body weight and there's no fillers everything is used so she'll need less. Lovely to see dogs eating real food especially little white fluffy ones

    She looks a real pro already ;) and the next step is - out come the baby wipes for a freshen up. T-Bo is already wise to the baby wipes and legs it as soon as he see's me take them out of the packet, lol. :)
