You can stretch your raw feeding dollars by supplementing your pet’s diet with the uncooked trimmings of your family’s dinner. For example, when trimming beef, grizzle and fat can be mixed with whatever variety of Dr. B’s you are feeding your pet. And the same is also true for chicken. Parts that you might not normally eat, such as the gizzard pack, tail and back rib portions can be fed to your pet. Just remember, any bones should be uncooked. Vegetable trimmings can also be added, make sure that they are pet-friendly – no onions, leeks, avocados or grapes. When you add vegetables, you are also adding fiber, which will result in more frequent stools. Here is a link to a list of vegetables that are good for both dogs and cats: Veggies!
