Cool! You're right, it does become second nature once you get used to the routine, though you'll find yourself occasionally missing those days of just dumping something in her bowl out of a bag or a can. :) That is where the pre-made frozen raw dog food will come in handy for me this time around. Make sure you give her really fresh, high quality stuff, and just keep reading and researching because it's easy to mess it up, getting the balance right can be difficult, and you sort of have to adjust for your own dog, too, things like their age and activity level. It's a lot of work, I know, but I sort of feel like it's our responsibility since we chose them, took them home, and they depend on us for a nutritious food source. I did not do everything right with my yorkie, and my biggest regret was that I didn't give her enough variety, and enough of the stuff that grossed me out like organ meats and tripe, etc. It was weird to think about my delicate little princess eating intestines - LOL!
I am still 50/50 on the raw bone thing. I did read one article about bone bits and fragments being stuck in the digestive tract - even though they were raw and feeding raw is supposed to be OK. On the flip side you read many glowing reviews of how healthy dogs are on raw bones, with clean teeth fresh breath, plenty of calcium... I'm still conflicted and plan to talk to my vet about that next week. Domestic dogs are not exactly wolves, and yet their basic needs are still adapted to that species, but the way they've been tweaked with breeding may be what my vet is getting at when she says every dog is different. I bet your dog will love her new diet, though, and I also bet her burping problem will disappear. You can try digestive enzymes in her food, too, though with raw you may not need them.
