Hi everybody! Hope you are all well. I'm sorry if this has been posted before- I did three searches, my last search I typed in "Raw puppies" and laughed at myself when I caught what I did. Anyway, I guess risking being redundant, I'm going to get a samoyed puppy at some point in the next year. Before you ask any of the normal "did you go to a good breeder" questions, the answer is yes, and you can check out my previous post here: http://www.chazhound.com/forums/t101448/ Anyway, is it better to feed a growing puppy raw or kibble? The kibble would be a really good type, like Fromm's and maybe supplemented with cow tripe, RMBs, and fish oil. OR should I start out with mostly RAW? Male samoyeds can be anywhere from 50 to 70 lbs- mostly they weigh in at about 60 lbs full grown, and the puppy will be male. Not that they're a giant dog, but I'm concerned about kibble regarding the calcium/phosphate ratios and the puppy's bones growing too quickly. Even and slow growth while maintaining the proper nutritional balance is difficult. I just don't know which way to go. If I do go RAW, how would I calculate how much of what to feed the pup?
