Raw feeding a pregnant and lactating dog

I have a pregnant toy girl and would like some advice as to what people are feeding.

I currently feed mostly puppy biscuits as recommended by the vet but would like to transition her over onto fully/mostly raw.

If any breeders are feeding a similar diet to their girls would you kindly advise what you are giving them

Thanks

I've always just fed my girls their normal diet, just more of it. They had a mixture of dry food and raw. Main base for the raw was minced chicken carcass. Sorry can't help much more then that

Where like Rebanne there diet  remains the same except for portions .

 

I would be very careful playing around with a diet a dog is not use too whilst pregnant especially if never been feed a proper raw diet .

my comment has nothing to do with raw v not but dogs not exposed to many of the organs in a true raw can struggle .

If your dog has had meat in the past make that healthier .

We use the vege rice in freezer section to add to our meat,tuna,sardines etc .

pour dogs are use to organ meats but not all can stomach it

I chop up chicken frames and feed them alongside puppy chow.  The lactating bitch needs more calcium and secondary minerals) more fat (dog milk is 9%+ fat) and more protein. Frames are a good source of all of these and better balanced than calcium supplements...plus they are prettyeasyto find and cheap. I don't trust pet mince.  It's often made from a scrap pile that's been sitting around and is none too fresh. 

My dogs are larger...but a good meat clever will reduce frames to a near pulp in no time.
