nothing if its raw, but if its raw its not called ham is it? I think Ham is cured.
check that there is raw ham bones. so as long as its raw the chance of choking is less then when cooked.

this is pretty normal. If you use pumpkin use only a little (t-spoon) in the last meal of the day. Too much will not make you happy or the pup for that matter. It will make the runs run more! Im not sure but you said something about feeding at night. You should feed at least twice a day at this age....

Wow, I wasn't expecting that much info. Lol I figured raw is one of the things that you can never do enough research on, so you might as well just jump in and start somewhere and learn as you go. Thanks for all the info. Sorry for the bombardment of information LOL You should do plenty of research ...

I want to switch Tequila over to raw. But, there is so much information that I feel like she would be long gone by the time I understood everything from what additional supplements to give and how to balance them out to what meats to feed to give her the correct 80-10-10 (muscle meat - bone - organ...

bottom line is you need to do some homework. I have been feeding Raw for years. I have proven myself with a 18 yr old APBT. like I said earlier. you need to have a baseline so you can judge what works for your dog. ps thats not an oxtail in the picture thats a cut bone. Like the one in a beef shank.

Im just wondering what is pup suitable meat. kibble and meat mixed together is not recomended, they both digest at a different rate. meat variety is very important and turkey necks are mostly bone and not a sufficient amout of meat. Like I said in a previous post if you feed your dog 6# mostly bone ...

Should I be concerned about any parasites at all? He's had a few, coming from a shelter and an overcrowded home before that. It's taken lots of meds to get rid of them - should I get him rechecked for an intestinal bug? I want to make sure he's getting all the neutriants from what I'm giving him. A...

An overdose of nutrients can be just as harmful as an underdose for growing puppies. Esp. calcium. The same with calories. Excess calories during the growth phase have been linked to hip displasia and growth abnormalities. True, but I don't think I suggested overloading a dog with nutrients. I agre...

... and if the pup starts looking fat, time to cut back on the food. I have fed all of my dogs raw, and am currently feeding one dog raw. I've studied the diet for many years in theory and practice. :) Dogs need as much as they need at that point in time. If they are growing or working, they need m...
