Individual meals are not balanced, as I practice "balance over time." Meaning that if I go a couple of weeks without feeding liver, kidney, etc, no big deal, it all balances out in the end.
These are examples of raw meals for large dogs. My dogs weigh approximately 90, 90, and 65 lbs. All eat the same amount daily, as "little guy" Faolan has a faster metabolism and is more active than Neeko and Bruce.
My dogs are all on the lean side, which I prefer. Neeko is actually classified as "very lean." She scores 4/9 body condition scale. Her vet and I are both fine with this, as she may have less than stellar hips. (She is a very tall dog, standing 32" at the shoulder.)
I feed a mostly prey model raw diet, with some ground, some premade, some dehydrated and freeze-dried raw thrown in for good measure.
