Janiece finally convinced me to try Harlow on a raw diet. I did not think this type of feeding was for me and my family’s lifestyle, but I can’t deny that the benefits seem amazing! So I am going to give it a try, and see if I have the ability to put in the work required. I understand that raw feeding is a controversial topic. Like everything in life, it comes with pros and cons. I have thought about it diligently and made my choice to give it a try, and I ask that my right to make such decisions for my dog is respected. No rude and unnecessary negativity here, please! Thank you so much for understanding, and thank you for joining us on our adventure!

How do you make bone meal broth

Anna Jackson says:

What do you do if Harlow has a poo and you are feeling dizzy and cannot pick it up? sorry if it's a weird question, just curious 🙂

Jiayee Leng says:

didn't expect dogs to eat eggshells though😂😂😂

MeAndMyStoma says:

I'm not saying this as hateful kind of comment, but when you said Janice doesn't have GP yet she can't eat I kinda got frustrated. I don't have GP either but I can barely eat anymore. GP is very bad and serious but there's more reasons than that to constantly feel sick.

Kaiya Peacock says:

I'm so sad that I have to skin past the parts with infusions & needles and everything like that because it triggers my panic attacks- which is too bad because that's a big part of your life which means I have to miss out! 🙁

Brianna Collins says:

Okay so excuse me if this makes me sound stupid but… I downloaded the raw dog app for my service dog, after I put in the weight of him, what do I put for "daily % of body weight to feed"?

Tiffany Wu says:

SOOOO GLAD!!!!! <3

Maybe if you do decide to continue with the raw diet, you can make some "ready meals" in advance and then place them in bags and freeze them so all you have to do is thaw it. Might make it easier for you and Judd to keep up with. Hopefully it'll help with her health too and make sure she's staying nice and strong.

Glen Hunt says:

Just downloaded Raw Dog! Now I just need to hurry and get my SD puppy.

Jazminne Goldthwaite says:

I am happy you are feeling a bit better ….get well soon!

Alida Wilson says:

Jaquie I'm glad you made it through the night OK! I'm praying for you and I hope your having a good time with your friends and family! (I thought it was Genise!) lol!

Everyday Life says:

What video editing do you use?

Sarah Nicole says:

Most people have a meal prep day once a month where they prepare all the raw meals, so every night you just take the prepared measured amount out of the freezer and into the fridge to thaw it out for the next day.

Also, I wouldn't reccomend mixing raw with kibble. It's best to just cut right to it and go to raw. There's several raw feeding groups on Facebook you can ask questions on 🙂

Ana Larson says:

So what if raw is too hard-easy method buy pre-cut chicken, basically Harlow would eat 1/4 of a 4-5 pound chicken. Start with just chicken, buy chicken livers and gizzards. Hardest part here is bagging 1/4 of chicken 1/2 liver and 1 gizzard and into the freezer it goes. Judd can help organize this with you so you don't tire and he knows too. When you eat dinner take one bag out and leave in fridge for tomorrow. Should be thawed if not place bag in luke cool water for 15 minutes it is okay if its slightly frozen, you can add a little warm water to her dish, this can be her morning thing or evening thing.

For veggies buy can or frozen organic pumpkin or squash, but make sure its plain. Use only one type of meat and veggie to start with at least for a week to see how she does. You should cook the veggie slightly, in pot or microwave, the partial cooking helps dogs with the digestion since they lack enzymes for complete digestions in their unique gut. This portions can be bagged too and when you want you can throw in the whole egg.

Dr Dobias' supplements are great, organic and human grade and the directions are easy sprinkle on food. Try to keep her fed in the kitchen so you can just wipe with a disposable wet mop, easy on you and she can make some mess freely.

Still too hard, then feed her what you eat cooked, it is way better than bagged food, save the bag food for emergencies if you have to, and you can add left overs that you don't eat, just never onion or garlic. We only use a light sprinkle of garlic powder for health. She gets 75% meat the rest veggies. Just never ever cooked bones! Hope that helps. Raw bones are a must, she will have beautiful strong flawless teeth, plus natural bone broth is good on anything for her. Good luck whatever you do, blessings!

Krista Marie says:

Glad to hear you didn't have any issues while staying with your dad! My dog did well on a raw diet but sadly I wasn't able to keep up with it. Go Janiece for finding a way to make it happen and I'm excited to see how you and Harlow do with it.

Ps: I love your leggings/pants. Where did you get them? 🙂

Reagan B Griff says:

I started raw feeding a few months ago & LOVE it. My groomer said that my fur is shinier and it grew faster.
Also you may find Harlow's poo to be slightly firmer. if so do not stress unless it is too dry and hard for him to poo.
When dad went to the hospital he took a cooler and added Ice daily. If it appeared we were going to run low on food, or if you do not want to make it we have used 'Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Bites Duck Formula Raw Frozen Dog Food,' from Chewy.com. This is more expensive but works in a pinch.
Like you we were blown away by the ingredients of my kibble. but after learning what heating the kibble does to nutrients while making it & learning how phony the labeling regulations are on the food we decided to switch. IT WAS THE BEST DECISION EVER. Good Luck.

Josh H says:

you need to wipe Harlows tear stains every day or it's going to continue to get worse. last dog did that and it was a pain
