SoCal Raw Fed Dogs is a canine nutrition and raw diet formulating company based in Southern California. 

My passion is helping dog owners feed their dog a nutritious and balanced raw diet that is promotive of optimal health.

I formulate custom recipes and meal plans for puppies, adults, pregnant/lactating dogs, working dogs, weight management, & certain therapeutic diets.

Additionally, I am an accredited instructor and I offer online canine nutrition and diet formulation courses.

In person workshops & seminars are available by request. 

Nothing I offer is a template. I believe that it is vital to feed the dog in front of you to optimally provide your dog with its personal nutrition needs. Because of this, my formulating software was developed to adjust ingredients varieties and amounts per your specific dog’s needs. I can formulate for a variety of feeding methodologies and I will guide you on what is the best plan + teach you what’s best for your dog.

🧫 Since so many of us prep on the weekends, I thought I’d share a simple ferment how-to and an article about how naturally fermented foods bring a whole lot of gut + immune support. 🧫 While gut support is important for all dogs, if you’re a German Shepherd owner or the owner of a puppy or senior dog; this one might be especially of interest for you! 🧫 To grab the easy recipe + learn how important it is to provide your dog with gut support, visit: https://tinyurl.com/betterguthealthfordogs 🧫 The accessible link is in my bio

A story called “My Crazy Life” + Mason’s frankenprey bowl contents.

I’ve begun working towards my second bachelor’s degree; this one is in pre-veterinary with a concentrated focus on companion animal nutrition. It’s been crazy around here but I’m really excited & proud! 🙌🏼🧡🐾🐾

Throw a sick kiddo into the mix while coming off a long weekend, with an ant invasion at my house due to crazy humidity in SoCal (the 🌧 finally got here an hour ago!), it’s been more than a little hectic. So time hasn’t permitted me to quickly reach for what’s needed to make perfectly balanced meals for all three dogs, multiple times a day.

My adults eat twice & my puppy eats three times. I don’t have time to brush my hair right now lol & that’s called real life so this means the puppy gets the perfectly balanced bowls & the adults get pretty close.

Prepping ahead helps & I have a major prep session on the books in the next couple of weeks. Want to know what Mason grubbed on? View below. ⬇️

Frankenprey w/ consideration of NRC standards:

🐷 Pork Loin
🦆 Organic Duck Breast
🐂 Grass-Fed/Finished Beef Liver
🦆 Organic Duck Head
🐠 Atlantic Sardine Filet
🦑 Blue Lipped Mussels
🥚 Hen Egg (no shell)
🐾 Quinoa + Bone Broth Paw

An Antioxidants + Urinary Tract Support Recipe. Link in bio until 7/14/19.

It takes quite a few berries to make yourself a good amount of powder so be sure you go ahead and buy more than you think you need. 🙌🏼

Ingredients & Supplies:

✔️Organic Cranberries
✔️ Organic Blueberries
✔️ Oxygen/Moisture Absorbents
✔️ Veggie Caps, Size Depends on Your Dog’s Needs (optional)
✔️ Fruit Dryer with Multi-Settings for the Blower

Instructions:

• Soak your organic berries in an apple cider vinegar soak, rinse with filtered water after the soak and let air dry for about ten minutes. (2:1 ACV to Water. Your mixture amount will depend on how many berries you’re soaking.) • Arrange your berries on your fruit dryer’s trays, keeping each berry to its own tray. Depending on your fruit dryer, it could be 2-3 days before your fruit is dried fully. Keep checking until they seem dried. Then dry again for another hour or so. • Add each berry by itself to a high-powered unit such as a Vitamix or a Ninja. I use a Vitamix with the dry container for my berries. • Store in glass air-tight containers with an oxygen & moisture absorbent.

How to Feed :

I prefer to feed the powders in loose form, but you can put them into veggie capsules as I did for the puppy kits that went home with a recent litter of Lab pups, we had. Putting the powder into veggie caps made it easier for the puppy owners to have the correct amount of powder to feed their pup. As mentioned above, your veggie capsule size will depend on your dog.

• Use a 2:1 ratio of cranberries to blueberries. So, if you opt for putting the powders into a capsule, fill them 2:1 cranberry powder to blueberry powder. If you feed loose, then the same rule applies; 2:1 of cranberry powder to blueberry powder.

• Feed 240mg per 25 lbs. of dog

♥️ My Lady B hasn’t had a PMR+ bowl in months! We were feeding her very precisely to support her litter & then through recovery from whelping & feeding seven babies! 🙌🏼

♥️ Now that the pups who were going home have gone home; she is having a PMR+ dinner that is a little more relaxed that follows the canine ancestral diet and still hits NRC wickets. Pups are 10 weeks old today & she’s regaining her healthful and beautiful figure. Love my girl! This meal was made with mad love. ♥️♥️

🐾 These salmon paws are really easy to make + have a secondary ingredient that’s beneficial to dogs. Read below to find out more. ⬇️

✔️ Mix Pink Salmon with Coconut Flour (a little dab of flour will do! Just enough to get your mixture to “stick.”)

✔️ Add your mix to paw molds and bake on 300 for 20-25 mins.

👀 Coconut flour? Say what?!

🥥 Coconut flour is actually “good” as a blood sugar regulator in canines. Coconut flour is a good % of fiber + it’s been found to reduce absorption of sugar in the blood stream & improves digestive health by removing toxins.

Cool before serving. Store in an airtight glass container inside the fridge. These paws should be fed within 5-7 days.

Raw feeding puppies on a Fri-Yay! It’s been a long week of making puppy food + snacks lol. I’m ready for this weekend off like no other. These bad boys are eating So. Much. Raw! I feel like all I do is feed dogs- literally. 🤣😍🙌🏼 #grindingallday #rawfeedingpuppies #rawfedpuppies #rawfedlabs #rawfeedinglabs #caninenutrition #biologicallyappropriaterawfood #rawfeedinginsocal #weekends #socaldogs #rawfeddogs #nrc #nrcbalanced #socalrawfeeder #socalrawfeddogs #feedraw #naturallyreared

It’s up to us as owners to provide foods that optimally nourish our pup’s body. In a few short days I get the seriously exciting joy of beginning to wean our litter to raw & everyone knows what a particular soul I am about raw feeding my dogs.😍🙌🏼

As such, I’ve got the best foods ready to go. @answerspetfood, @soulyraw & @socalrawfeddogs are on deck for the pups. The pack has been being nourished by only the best because these foods are what Mom has been eating since before they were born. No dead food will be offered to these fluffy-butts.

♥️ A happy mother’s day bowl for my lactating female.

NRC Balanced

She’s 13 days post whelp with a litter of seven med/large breed pups.

Right now Lady B’s eating 5,024 calories fed across 4x per day with a higher protein to fat ratio w/lower carb, omega-6/omega-3 ratio 5 : 1 & Ca : P ratio 1.11 : 1.

Note: Additional mini-meals are being fed on days I notice the pups feed more/longer. Feeding a pack of pups quickly depletes mom so it’s important to naturally keep these levels higher during the lactation period. I don’t add those into her daily kcal amount because they’re Mom snacks. 😉

What’s for Mamma’s dinner?

🤷🏼‍♀️You know who’s banging the PMR purist drum right now like it’s her job? My mamma dog Lady Belleau. Lol. My Labs eat anything I give them & this girl is a hard no for anything but PMR covered in @answerspetfood fish stock & goat milk right now.

See her picking through her meal to get to the meat first? Later, she begrudgingly eats the balancing foods. She clearly is in a primal state at this time & while I totally respect that & I’m sort of really digging it too because it shows her natural inclinations, I know she needs more to help her body function optimally so she can best nourish her babies.

SO, I spent some of my puppy shift (we’re on round the clock shifts over here for the next couple of weeks) soaking veg & seeds in Answers turkey + beet stock. So take that Lady B! You’re gonna eat your greens & you’re gonna like it! #pickymammadog #pmrpurist #givemeallthepmr #illtaketheanswerstho

🎉 Lady B whelped a healthy + gorgeous litter of seven pups last week. Pregnancy & birthing cause major stress on a female dog’s body, so I brought in some Answers to help heal her gut & support her internal systems in the most optimal way I can.

Why Answers Additional Formulas?

🗝 Because fermented raw nutrition is KEY to gut health. #fermentationjunkie

The raw goat’s milk offers whole food probiotics, which are live microorganisms. The added cultures puts “good bacteria” into Lady B’s gut; which is crucial in reducing & removing the temporary inflammation she has going on from the whelping stress & the good bacteria helps me work on rebuilding her immune system.

The Answers fermented fish stock gives glycoaminoglycans (GAGs), which are a component of joint cartilage, glucosamine, chondroitin + hyaluronic acid. The fish stock is also a real food source of iodine & thyroid supportive nutrients. A dog’s skeletal system & thyroid are both temporarily affected by pregnancy & birth. The stock also gives gut support & helps the digestive system optimally function. This stinky little broth is loaded with greatness!

Turkey + beet juice say what? Fermented beet juice first appeared in our bowls in 2016 after we got Mason & became a pretty frequent guest star over the course of 2017 because beet juice is just so dang good! What’s so good about it? Beet juice also called kvass, offers phytonutrients and antioxidants without a carb load. Plant phytonutrients while not essential to an organism for functionality, do offer system support via cell communication & anti-inflammatory. Plant phytonutrients also help with DNA repair & other pretty great things like anti cancer & heart disease prevention but I’m not feeding it for these particular things so I’ll leave the in-depth info about those for another day. “Fermented raw nutrition provides blood plasma much like a blood transfusion.” Answers Pet Food, 2016

Post whelp meals & snacks need to be loaded with nutrition & fed frequently. I selected the particular rabbit feet used in this one because they are large in size & it’s critical to keep the calcium level high during labor & lactation because birthing & nursing puppies take everything a dam has. Her body begins pulling from its natural storage & with calcium, as long as we keep the level high, her body will replace what it pulls from her own bones.

Somethings cannot be stored in the body in appropriate amounts or at all. What might be missing from this bowl has either been fed 2 hours ago or will be fed in two hours after this one. Feeding frequently is crucial.

I keep hearing folks are way surprised to see me adding a liquid vitamin E over the past few weeks to this dog’s meals. 😱😋When I’m feeding a pregnant/lactating dog, I am going to give her what she needs in the most bioavailable & swiftest ways I can. ♥️

Sure, I’m all about the canine ancestral diet & using food over supps but when it comes to puppies & mothers, I feed puppies & mothers the best way that I know how regardless if it seamlessly mirrors wildlife. This mom is not in the wild & so it’s my job to give her everything she needs while she does her job of feeding her litter. ♥️

This bowl has:

Grass-fed/finished 93% lean ground beef
Grass-fed/finished beef tripe
Atlantic salmon
Organic rabbit feet
Grass-fed/finished beef liver
Grass-fed/finished beef thymus
Eastern oysters
Organic blueberries
California spirulina
Organic hemp hearts
Organic seed mix (almonds & sunflower. Almonds are a SEED)

Why Quinoa? It’s a protein packed SEED that is also a carb. Pregnant females DO need dietary carbs to help with glucose. Yes, dogs do make their own but pregnant females need an increase beyond what they can create themselves because glucose is a considerable energy source for fetal development. •
Soaking quinoa with bone broth overnight reduces the phytic acid. When phytic acid binds to a mineral in the seed it’s called a Phytate. Phytates reduce the digestion + absorption of many critical nutrients from proteins to fats to minerals such as zinc, iron, & manganese. All of these are crucial during pregnancy. Soaking it in bone broth & then cooking with additional broth makes it palatable to the female & offers the nutrients of the broth. #winning

😱 Why isn’t there OSO in my bowl tonight? (other secreting organ)

Because I decided to reach for other foods that bring the nutrients found in a lot of the OSO I feed regularly for no other reason than I just felt like balancing this meal differently than usual. •
😱😱 Why did I use a vitamin E instead of food? •
Because this female is pregnant & giving her the vitamin E in a precise amount that is totally on point matters to me right now. •
Added note: This bowl does follow the ancestral diet when it comes to balancing the proteins & fats.

🦆We created a seriously palatable + limited duck blend in the kitchen this past weekend!

(78/12/5/5 PMR Organic Duck Blend)

Planning a special selection like this one required my patience because I wanted very particular ducks! I was really picky about how we processed them & how they were trimmed & cut to preserve each bit + piece so I could make sure only the rawsome of raw went into it.

I selected each duck for their exquisite meat texture & color. Deep reddish-purple meat was a must! Hearts & livers, kidneys + spleens, & tracheas were healthy shades of color & quality. Because the ducks were truly raised organic style, they weren’t huge nor did the carcasses have too much fat.

🥰 My husband Dave has the patience of a Saint & he indulged me & helped at the kitchen over the weekend, while I dedicated to the details of this one! 😂

I choose to leave traces of feathers/fuzz on some of the wings, we left some of the spleen & heart chunky in the grind making this a sensational blend. My dogs LOVE it! #rawfeedingdetails

This blend is available to clients as an add-on to a 15 lbs. order. DM or Email info@socalrawfeddogs.com to snag yours. Once it’s gone, it’s gone!

9.50 per lb. Packed in 1 lb. containers, limit 1 per client. That’s how limited this blend is! 🦆🙌🏼🧡 #duckismyjam #chunkygrinds •

I triple filter the herb but I do not remove any herb matter that wishes to remain with the natural medicine that the plant has created. If the will of the herb after three filters is to remain, then it is the will of the plant to be honored.

Burdock Root is a great herb to use proactively for liver, gallbladder, & digestive support & also a powerful herb to help with toxin and allergen filtration.

I recommend Burdock Root during the spring for the internal systems support + elimination assistance it gives. This helps with optimal functioning & with anti-allergen effects for dogs with itchy &/or dry skin. This is because the skin is showing us what’s already been occurring within the body. Skin issues are a symptom of an internal root cause generally related to inflammation.

The herb helps with the effective processing of fats which helps ease up the digestive system load.

Burdock Root is known as a "blood filter" which is why it is great at aiding in the flush of toxins and is used during a blood cleansing protocol. Liver + kidney support are given during this filtration process.

Parts of the plant used: Roots & seeds.

Internal use: System cleanser, liver support, anti-inflammatory & prebiotic.

Dosage depends on the dog. Full dosage is 1 drop x 3 per day for every 25 lbs. of dog. A safe way to begin is with 1 drop per 25 lbs. of dog x 2 per day for the first three days to ensure there is no adverse reaction.

On day four, increase to 1 drop for every 25 lbs. of dog x 3 per day.

Work your way up as stated over the first four days & then administer consistently at full dosage for 6 weeks.

Full Dosage: 1 drop per 25 lbs. of dog three times per day. Do not give with meals. Administer this tincture away from meals. Document as you go to see if there is any improvement.

Be mindful with your dosing and where you store your tincture. Store in a cool + dry place out of the reach of children & pets. This is not medical advice nor to be meant as a replacement for medication. Seek Vet advice if you have a specific medical related question. 🌿

******************
This is my favorite time of year for our farming projects; the rabbits are breeding like rabbits & our favorite foods are plentiful!

When feeding a low-fat protein like bone-in rabbit, it’s important to bring the nutrition value up by also feeding a hard working muscle like grass-fed/finished beef lung.

Raw Facts-

Harder working muscles, such as lungs, from an animal that consumed only a grass diet is higher in some nutrient values. From a biologically appropriate point; cattle are meant to graze on grasses & not be fed an engineered diet of grains.

🥬 There’s no greens in this bowl because the Lab eating it gets yeasty if I feed too much plant matter too many meals in a row. That’s why a few times a month my bowls are missing the veg. Usually means that he has been at my hip as the recipient of too many treats from the shop & needs a break. 😍😂

Aaannnd sometimes we feed pretty cats.

Why all the grass-fed/finished & organic foods always in my bowls?

My Labs thrive on red meat. The energy level is high, their muscles pop & their skin + coats are in excellent condition. This is because canines are meant to eat red meat. I won’t use the “in the wild” metaphor here because we aren’t in the wild lol, but it is true that dogs are meant to eat red meat & it’s the foundation of an ancestral diet. What’s an ancestral diet?

An ancestral diet is comprised of foods that are grass-fed/finished, organic (because no pesticides), & whole, unprocessed foods. The diet is primarily red meats & whole prey because that is what was available to our domesticated dogs’ ancestors. Does this mean dogs ‘have to eat’ this way? No. Is it a more optimal way for them to eat? Yes.

Grass-fed/finished meats are more nutrient dense than grain-fed & even grass-fed/grain-finished. Why? Because the cattle ate a natural diet in life & without being forced to eat grains or supplements, the cattle stay leaner. The natural diet of cattle gives them the energy, vitamins, minerals, etc they need, allowing their bodies to optimally use the nutrition. You might notice that grass-fed/finished meats tend to have a lot less fat on them, the above is why. The cattle wasn’t as fatty because it wasn’t fed to beef it up.

The reason I feed my dogs organic foods is because that’s how I feed my fam & my dogs are a part of my fam. So why would I offer them something different than what’s already being grown at home & bought for my family? I would have to go out of my way to purchase non-organic foods for my dogs. That doesn’t make any sense. If I’m feeding my family organic foods for the betterment of their health & the longevity of their lives, then no way am I going to go look for a cheaper option for my dogs who I want to thrive & live long too. This has been my approach to taking care of my family & my dogs since day one. 🧡

🧬Read an excerpt about Calcium Metabolism in Puppies:
—-
🦴Puppies younger than six months old cannot fully regulate calcium absorption yet. Too little calcium can affect a puppy’s growth rate + their bone mineral content & strength; while too much can increase the risk of Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy (HOD). The requirements for calcium depend on breed and age.
—-
🧽 The skeleton acts as a calcium buffer in which 99.5% of the body calcium is present. The calciotropic hormones parathormone, calcitonin and vitamin D are the most important factors, which particularly affect the processes of absorption, resorption and accretion of calcium. A prolonged abnormal calcium intake will result in skeletal changes, particularly in young dogs.
—-
🗝Supplementing with too much calcium or phosphorus can increase a dog’s susceptibility to diseases. Large and giant-breed dogs fed excess calcium are more likely to develop osteochondrosis.
—-
🗝Critical Tip: Calcium & Phosphorus supplements should not be added to growing large & giant breed puppies balanced diet. Adding these types of supplements to a balanced diet can contribute to skeletal issues due to changing the balance of Ca:P.

I’m very thankful to have these boys’ Mamma Jenn in our community. She’s seriously a stellar dog mom and all around great person. I’ve enjoyed her so much this year. I can’t wait to see them all three in 2019! @clydedogandbutterball #clydedogandbutterballrock #jennwithtwons #socalrawfedrescuedogs #larescue #whorescuedwho #lovemyfeeders #socalrawfeddogs #community #socalrawfeedingcommunity #veganmommeatfeddogs #pmr #pmrfeeder #rawfeedingcommunity #rawfeedingdogs #rawfeddogs
