10 oz. meals
Guidelines: Remember that balance over time is the best method of feeding. Your BB needs a variety in protein sources but it’s not necessary to give that variety all in one day. Think of the variety over a one week period. Purchase for that week and take an hour of your weekend to prep the meals for that week. Once you get the hang of it and the pup goes to two meals a day, you can prep for a month at a time for ease.
Week 1 you might use beef and chicken, with fish 2 days of the week; Week 2 you might use chicken and pork. You can switch out the chicken for turkey anytime.
Bone sources for the young pup will mostly be Chicken thighs, legs, feet. Duck feet work well too. As the pup matures they will handle larger bone such as pork, lamb, goat ribs, pork feet, chicken leg quarters, small turkey necks, ect.
Wild Game: freeze for 3 weeks before using, but this is a great resource that’s typically free.
I no longer give fish oil, but use whole fish instead. Fish oils can go rancid. I add phytoplankton for Omega 3's a few times a week. 1/4 tsp. for adults.
I still use Joint Health Chewables for all of my dogs!
5 Days of the week:

2 Days of the week.
