Thanks George. This is what Natures menu say: "Home made -Your decision, its simply meat. The Bone content is far too minced/ground down to be an issue when cooked. We do recommend our meats are used with a raw diet"
I cooked it when my GSD had surgery and had a bacterial infection, and the vet thought it best cooked, and I found the dogs seem to prefer it. I have to cook the veg and rice but I could mix this with the raw meat? I've just recently started so am open to recommendations and suggestions. I also feed Lupo Natural Swiss chicken so they get a complete meal every day as well as my home cooked recipes. Do you think the quantities are wrong if they are cooked?
Gill, do you mean Natures Menu recommend those quantities for raw feeding, or do they actually suggest that you can cook their Free Flow Mince?
I suppose the beef and tripe varieties could be cooked before feeding but all the others contain bone and could be very dangerous to feed cooked - the tiny bits of bone will become brittle and some will have sharp edges, it could easily result in a punctured intestine. Nutriment & Natural Instinct warn that their raw meals should never be cooked for that reason, and I have just checked, Natures Menu minces do contain bone.
