Raw Diet for Dachshunds
If you're curious about BARF - Bones and Raw Food - for Dachshunds, head on over to Who's Your Dachshund? to check out an article by our friend Courtney who offers up a nice introduction to raw feeding called FEEDING RAW: I THINK IT'S SUPPERTIME. She has provided a little background on raw feeding, some nice tips, as well as some helpful links.
We've eaten bones and raw food our entire lives, for 8.5 years now, and every meal is a great adventure. We generally stick to convenient prepared frozen premix raw foods that you can find in some pet supply stores, but we have also eaten a lot of RMBs (raw meaty bones) over the years.
We've found the diet to be fairly simple, we are in good health, and we think that we look pretty good for our age (although sometimes we feel the years are tumbling upon us at an ever faster rate). Dad also gives us salmon oil and an HA/glucosamine supplement every day for our backs, and then we're ready to rule the world. All this talk about food has made us hungry!
