Transitioning to Feeding RAW prey diet

Hello,

I have a 2 year old male red named Hades and I have made the decision to switch him onto RAW prey model style. I have fed raw treats for over a year now so it is not as much of a shock to his system. I fed him his first RAW meal yesterday, and my only concern is that he just picked out and ate the parts he liked or was familiar with and left half of it. What I fed him was liver, chicken hearts, ground beef and chicken leg with the back still attached. He ate up the ground beef no problem.. ate one of the chicken hearts and a little of the liver, chomped only the one end of he chicken leg and then that was it. I know he can be a bit picky as I spoil him sometimes (trying to work on that lol). My question is, do I just give him the remaining parts of the meal he did not finish as his next meal? or do I give him a new "complete" meal with all the parts included again. I do not want him to just keep picking out the ground beef or whatever and leaving the rest..

I am surprised he did not eat the chicken leg, as I give him raw bones all the time and have never given him ground beef but he ate that over the chicken. Is it possible he got full? He is not a super food crazy dog. That was one of the reasons for switching him as well, because when I would feed him his kibble meal (good brand also) he wouldn't be too eager to eat right away... sometimes would not eat for the whole day. In my opinion, I feel like he should be eager and excited for his meal. He does get excited and eager with RAW but still is picky...

I no longer feed raw, but when I did I either had to lightly sear the liver or add it as a grind. Otherwise she wouldn't touch it - may be a texture thing.

hmm, I will try searing a bit and see if that helps. Thanks!

Yeah... Raw liver.

Years ago I had a boy who eschewed two foods. Cooked mushrooms and raw liver.

I agree, it's the texture. That's kind of why I don't enjoy raw oysters.
