1. Raw Meaty Bones:

Your Pitbull requires two basic minerals, including calcium & phosphorus in a ratio of 1 : 1 to 2 : 1. Meat generally contains a small amount of calcium and a significant amount of phosphorus.

However, raw meaty bones can easily deliver the much-desired minerals (calcium & phosphorus) in an average ratio of 1 : 1. Hence, these raw dog food will be really ideal for your Pitbull that promotes good health and a great immune system. Here’s a list of some of the popular RMBs.

  1. Chicken (any part)
  2. Turkey (any part
  3. Duck (any part)
  4. Pheasant (any part)
  5. Quail (feed whole)
  6. Rabbit (any part)
  7. Ostrich and emu (ribs, necks, and knuckles)
  8. Pork (ribs, shoulders, necks, and tails)
  9. Lamb (ribs, necks, and breasts)
  10. Oxtails

2. Raw Organ Meat:

Around 10% of your Pitbull’s diet should contain raw organ meat. You can feed them the easily-available raw organ meats, for example, livers, hearts, and kidneys of chicken, turkey, lamb, and beef etc.

3. Raw Muscle Meat:

Boneless raw muscle meats can be also fed to your Pitbull – which can be either in grounded form or available in smaller chunks. Sometimes, Pitbulls really require some red meat to consume as an integral part of their diet. Thus, you can feed them grounded beef, oxtails, and lamb RMBs etc.

4. Raw Eggs:

The egg’s shell generally contains around 95% calcium, that efficiently balances the excess phosphorus usually found in organ meats, meatier RMBs, boneless muscle meats, and the raw eggs themselves. You should ideally feed your Pitbull around 3-4 large raw eggs (with shell) per week.

5. Raw Fishes:

As wild fish generally contains parasites, so feed your Pitbull some specific wild fish species or farmed fish, for example, tuna and snapper. But, never feed them raw salmons as these fishes can incur poisoning diseases which are potentially fatal. Carp and catfish can be also fed as these species contain an enzyme that binds Vitamin B1.

Other than that, you can also feed your Pitbull raw fruits and veggies (broccoli, parsley, spinach, celery, apple etc ) but they need to be properly crushed in a juicer/grinder or a food processor.
