Re: B.A.R.F. 101

I have a question about raw marrow bones. We have been giving them to Leo often, and he has been licking all the marrow out, and then chewing on the bone nicely until he gets bored. However, the last few bones I gave him, he's been "shaving" little pieces off the bone with his teeth and ha...

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

This may not work for others, but thought I'd share. Leo didn't want much to do with kidneys when I tried to introduce them. Maybe the texture. I got some kelp powder which he loves, all over the kidney (just a couple small pieces of kidney) and he gobbled them up. I usually give kelp powder still, ...

Stay Away From Dog Treats With Wheat/Dyes

I wanted to post this for a while, sorry if this is old news to everyone on here, but I had a great vet experience lately and found out what has been causing these sores and skin irritations mainly on chin area that kept recurring. Our previous vet just prescribed us medication and never told us wha...

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

So I was tempted to get this beef tripe that the local market had by me, but is there a difference between beef tripe and "green" beef tripe? It's in the meat department, packaged by the market so I assume they get it fresh, but it doesn't say green tripe on the label, just beef tripe. It ...

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

Oh and 1 question. Since he is allergic to chicken, does that mean he will be allergic to eggs too? Is that a dumb question? :oops: Not necessarily. AND, he may not be allergic to grass/seed fed chickens vs corn fed. Also, check out Greentripe.com products!!! If you can get a group of raw feeders t...

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

So we found out Leo was allergic to chicken, and chicken was the only source for organ meats we had, and we mainly fed him chicken most of the time but also beef/turkey/pork. This was a bummer, because going back on raw, I had no source for organ meat. But tonight at my local Publix supermarket, the...

Re: Health Precautions for the Beach

Heat stroke should not be a problem, but some shade/umbrella is good -- and you can let him go into the water to help cool off a bit. Try not to let him do any of his business on the beach. Take him for regular walks. IF he does have an "oops" and go on the beach, make sure you pick it up...

Health Precautions for the Beach

I hope this is the right section. Anyway, we are planning on bringing Leo to the beach tomorrow with us for the first time and we were wondering about a couple of things in order to keep him healthy and safe. To get a couple things out of the way, Leo will be leashed at all times obviously with me o...

Re: New TOTW flavor?

Yeah! Leo is on it now to get over a chicken food allergy, and he is definitely loving it more than any other kibble we've fed him from his reactions when we're scooping the food out for him.

Re: Yeast Infection? Please Help - With Pics

OH!!!! I'd also invest in an aloe plant... whenever we get bumps, we cut a piece off and apply the cooling liquid. Stops her from itching and helps the healing. Ohhhh we actually do have an aloe plant in our backyard we use at times. Didn't think of using it for Leo, I'll try that! To give an updat...

Re: His Neutered is scheduled....questions

Just wanted to say GOOD LUCK, and the worst part of the procedure for us was seeing our pup loopy and miserable after the surgery, and then a wreck for days afterwards! Oh man just brought back memories, it was so sad, it was the first time he had to wear an e-collar and since the medication made hi...

Re: Yeast Infection? Please Help - With Pics

salmon oil is a natural anti inflammatory, plus it is good for the coat. If you add salmon oil make sure you add vitamin e as well. You can also join raw feeding co ops on yahoo groups to get good deals on meat. There are some links in the RAW sticky. Thanks for the info. I joined a few Yahoo group...
