    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article Raw Food Recipe For Dogs. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      It's a great hub. With really good photos.

      Delete the link to the blog. It's not a proper study and it links to a commercial blog. See if you can find a proper scientific study, if not, leave it out and just say that 'it's possible that ginger can reduce the likelihood of cancer'.

    Thank you for the advice & kind words, I really appreciate it. I will remove the link for now whilst I try and find a proper scientific study.

    I found the article interesting, with good photos, so think you're "nearly there."  After a quick read through, here are a few points which struck me...

    How did you find the answer "Yes" to your question of can you feed dogs raw food?

    Check use of dogs/dog's, eg "my dogs diet" should be "my dog's diet."

    In Top Tips you write, "Keep it grain free." Why is that?

    " you couldn't get fresher! even if you tied O'l bessy your car roof top and drove off! " This is one of a couple of places an exclamation mark appears apparently in the middle of a sentence, which is incorrect. As a Brit, I've no idea who/what O'l bessy may be. Is there a word missing before "your car roof top"?

    "I also get produce me and my partner use for ourselves from their," should be "my partner and I" and "there."

    Try some more proofreading, you have the making of a really promising hub. Good luck!

    Innerspin, thank you so much for your in depth feedback, I really appreciate it. I am still learning this fine art of writing so detailed responses like this are great for me. I have gone back and edited some of the areas you have highlighted.

    On a side note, 'Ol' Bessy' to me is a cow...as my yourself and my partner have just pointed out, there is only myself that calls a cow this!

    This is not going to help you pass the QAP, but I do recommend you do some more research into this subject and read about why bones are recommended on a raw diet. It is called the "Bones and Raw Food" diet for a reason.
    I feed my dogs a raw diet, but with raw bones as a major ingredient.

    Hi DrMark1961, I do want to add bones into my dogs diet however I am unsure how you incorporate them into the meal, could you possibly advise or point me in the right direction please?

    Thanks in advance.

      I give my dogs a lot of chicken feet and chicken necks, two types of meat that are cheap and available. I had several hubs on this but the traffic was never good so I just deleted them. I suggest 60% (more or less) meaty bones--at times I will give the dogs a whole rabbit but mostly I have chicken, which is very soft and a bone that will cause no problems, even in very small puppies. (I start at about 6 wks of age.)
      (Chicken feet have a high level of glucosamine too, so as your dogs get older this is a much better source than anything you can buy in a bottle.)
