How to combine the 4 basic components of homemade dog food.

Imagine an entire carcass of any prey animal a meat eater like your dog or cat would eat.

Now envision how much of that creature is made up of the 4 Daily Components
1) Muscle meats
2) Bones
3) Organs
4) Vegetable and fruit matter that may be present in the prey animal’s GI

Now re-simulate this in a "mini-version" each meal

Ta’Da! 
You’re feeding the primal diet intended by nature


Rule of thumb is the goal in feeding raw is to balance over time and a variety of ingredients may be used for each component, for example for meat: venison, chicken or beef may be used. For bone: ground bone, raw meaty bones, egg shell powder or bone meal may be used. For organs: heart, liver, gizzards, kidneys from different species may be used. You get the picture.

Roughly your pet’s meals will be composed of components in these portions:
Just about the same proportions that each of these components are found on the carcass of a prey animal.
