I'd love to start Einstein on a partially raw diet. I have even thought of 'cooking' all his meals, but I worry that he won't get everything he needs if I am not absolutely careful. I have been reading a lot of posts on here, all with great information, I'm so glad I found this forum!
Fortunately, or maybe not so fortunately for me, I have celiacs. I would think this would make it easier for me since I have to make similar choices/changes in my own diet. In addition to no wheat, barely or any gluten for that matter, I try to hide flax and chia seeds and other healthy buffers in my food. Would these also be beneficial to my basenji?
I also eat a lot of sushi and the other day at work I thought about what was in the tuna avocado roll (tuna, avocado, rice w/vinegar, nori, sesame seeds) I couldn't think of anything that would harm him, so I cut it up and put it in a bowl for him and he LOVED it. He also loved the california roll, but I took out the cucumber since he didn't seem to like that. Now, sushi could get expensive for my pup, but I could cut a piece of fish off every time I purchase for us and chop it up for him with other ingredients like cooked rice and veggies? Has anyone done this before? Can I do this with other raw proteins as well? I want to do the best for him, but kibble is really easy sometimes and he loves the Canidae. He also loves his carrots. All I have to say is "Einstein, wanna carrot?" and he is at the fridge waiting for me!
