That is exactly what you need to do. Don't worry about them eating raw meat because humans shouldn't we have two different digestive systems that are meant to eat different diets all together. I find that commercial pet foods "prey" on humans thinking their pets should be eating the same as humans, when in fact veggies and grain added to the pet food is actually just cheap filler for the industry.

Also, if you don't complicate things, it may not become such a chore or expensive.
