PMR is designed to provide family dogs with a homemade diet that replicates the diet of a wild canine without requiring the pet to hunt and kill wild prey while eliminating all processed foods and grains. A complete PMR diet for dogs consists of 80% muscle meat, 10% raw edible bone, 5% liver, and 5% other secreting organ.
Franken Prey is another term used for raw feeders who follow ratio guidelines of PMR but feed a variety of different cuts of meats to complete their dog’s meal to correct guidelines. Meals can consist of multiple protein sources in a single feeding.
Whole Prey Feeding
Whole prey is the entire prey animal with pelt/feathers and innards intact. Some raw feeders provide whole animals which is where the term “Prey Model Raw” came from. Whole prey provides a perfect balance of muscle, bone, and organs in a single meal.
It is optimal to feed whole cuts and/or whole prey to your dog to provide teeth cleaning benefits and endorphin release. Feeding grinds does not provide teeth cleaning benefits.
