Prey Model Raw (PMR) Updated on: March 27th, 2019

PMR (Prey Model Raw) mimics the diet of a wolf without actually requiring the dog to hunt and kill wild prey. This diet eliminates all processed foods and grains. Generally, a complete PMR diet for dogs consists of 80% muscle meat, 10% raw edible bone, 10% organ (5% liver, 5% other secreting organ).

why we feed

PMR is the most similar to how a dog would eat in their natural habitat (the wild). Wolves have been documented to eat up to 8% vegetation, but some raw feeders prefer to leave the fruit and veggies out and stick to meat, edible bone and organ. Some will say that PMR is better for dogs than BARF raw, but sometimes fruits and veggies can offer specific nutrients that are hard to find in certain meats!

how to feed

PMR follows the guidelines as: 80% muscle meat, 10% raw edible bone, 5% liver, and 5% other secreting organ. These guidelines can be achieved through whole prey and Frankenprey feeding methods. Whole prey is a whole, intact, prey animal with fur or feathers and will includee all organs, bones, blood, and glands. Frankenprey is another term used for raw feeders who follow ratio guidelines of PMR, but feed a variety of different cuts of meats. Meals can consist of multiple protein sources in a single feeding.

Additional info

When feeding PMR, it is best to feed whole cuts and/or whole prey to your dog to provide teeth cleaning benefits and endorphin release. Grinded up food will not clean the teeth!
