The prey model diet for dogs consists of giving the animal raw food and this has been proven to have very beneficial effects on their health.
This diet came from the idea that dogs are animals that are actually used to eating raw meat and we have attempted to change that by giving them cooked and processed foods. There are mixed opinions about this kind of diet. Some people claim that this kind of diet can be dangerous for the animal because of many illnesses that can be caused by eating raw meat.
Other say that dogs have a very powerful digestive system and this makes it impossible for any dangerous bacteria to pose a treat. Other studies suggest that dogs that have been domesticated for several generations, are probably more likely to suffer from consequences from eating raw meat.
The reason for this is that their digestive systems have been genetically altered to eat cooked foods, but there is no strong proof that this could cause a problem. If you decide that you want to train your bully in order to increase muscle mass, the raw diet is probably a great idea. We suggest that once you get started with the raw diet, you completely get rid of all other food that you are giving your dog.
Basically once you go raw, you stay raw all the way. No more cooked treats at all. The next step is to understand that if you want to feed your dog raw meat for muscle growth, you need to give the animal enough food for their daily needs and for the muscle repair process. This means that your dog should be eating at least 3 to 4% of their body weight in food each day.
When you choose the raw diet, you can start by purchasing beef, pork, turkey and fish. All of these meats in their raw condition are going to provide the animal with the highest amount of protein per day. This is going to boost their vitality and their muscles will grow stronger at much faster rates. Keep in mind that you are going to have to store a lot of extra meat for your dog. You need to keep a section of your freezer that will be meant for the storage of the dog’s meat.
Each day you should leave the meat to defrost in your sink and then you can feed it to be animal once it gets warm and soft. If you want to make sure that your dog is not going to make a mess, you should cut the raw meat in small chunks that the dog can eat without having to tear it into smaller pieces.
If your dog shows any sign of loose stools this is not something you should be worried about. Most dos that have been eating kibble for a long time need to have a period of adjustment. One thing we are sure about is that your dog is going to love the raw meat.
This should not be a problem for you at all, but if your dog shows no interest in raw meat, you need to be patient and wait until hunger makes them try it out. If you see that they continue to show no interest in the raw foods, you might have a dog that has become extremely used to kibble.
