Re: Jasmin's Heath Problems (NEED ADVICE)

Go to a different vet! Why would you get a steroid injection if the vet doesn't even have a diagnosis? He doesn't know what he is treating. Personally if my dog was so sick he couldn't move and wasn't eating for days he would already be in at another vet. Get the bloodwork results and tests from th...

Re: Raw For Training Treats?

There are several freeze-dried treats available out there. Google around - you can make your own as well, baking liver at low heat until it dries, then freeze it.

Re:

Nutrition is like religion. Everybody is convinced that THEIR way is the right way, and everybody else is wrong. But, nobody REALLY knows for sure. Look how often nutritional information changes for humans! Everybody needs to do what is best for their own dogs. Do the research, and do what is best ...

Re: Feeding Raw

I started feeding Bodie his raw diet a couple of days ago - these are photos from today, Day 3. I am using 80/10/10, but being so early on he is only getting meat and bones right now. It's going so well. :) He hasn't refused any since day one. Yay Bodie - and Lioness!!! I know you both will continu...

Re: Allergic to Bees **Advice???

Poor baby!!! I have not researched this - for this particular application - just throwing it out there quickly for you to perhaps do some googling and I will as well. Spirulina works great as an antihistamine. Lots of horses that have upper respiratory issues as well as breakouts, hives from insect ...

Re: "Dogs need by products"-Vet

My oldest Pug will be 15 in February. He has been raw fed for 4 years. He is virtually odorless. Thick, velvety, glossy coat. He has fewer teeth than he started with, but the ones he has look good and work fine. I don't bathe my dogs. At all. The last time I bathed one of my dogs was 2 years ago wh...

Re: "Dogs need by products"-Vet

some might say my dog lived to 12 or 15years, on pedigree or science diet and he was fine.. I was one of those people. My first "very own" dog was a little Lhasa that I got at 8 weeks and sent to the bridge when she was 16. Pretty long time, eh? But the last few years of her life she was ...

Re: *NEW vaccine protocol*

my vet is young and still gives yearly vaccines. There's one clinic here in my city that vaccinates for everything, every year, no discussions period. Horrible medicine IMO. I found a new vet after taking my then 17 year old cat in for bloodwork - specifically telling them not to vaccinate for heav...

Re: Feeding Raw

Does anyone raw feed their cats? I do! My 2 girls were less than a year when they joined the household and both took to it right away. I've heard the younger the better. I start with ground raw mixed with a little canned cat food or tuna and toss a bit of kibble or temptations (I know - it's garbag...

Re: Feeding Raw

The best customer for all the foods mentioned above is the general public, not shelters. People buy that food because it's well marketed, inexpensive and readily available. Most dogs do well enough on it and people like feeding it. They live. Which is the goal of feeding trials... (Which don't last...

Re: Feeding Raw

Is anyone aware of any studies showing the pros/cons of RAW feeding? Studies have to be funded. Virtually an impossibility... Vet schools won't do it as their funding comes from Proctor & Gamble (Iams, Eukanuba), Colgate-Palmolive (Science Diet)... There are a ton of people who have done it wit...

Re: Feeding Raw

I started doing some research and then dove into feeding raw. A lot of how I feed is trial and error. Some of it is gleaned advice from others who feed raw but I often find many raw feeders to be way too anal about things. I am no longer overly concerned with calcium phosphorous ratios or pancreati...

Re: Feeding Raw

I used to feed closer to the prey model, but after my older Pug choked twice (the second time he actually lost consciousness before I could get the chunk of bone out of his throat - SCARY) I scrapped it. I absolutely believe 100% in feeding raw meaty bone, but I didn't start him on raw until he was ...
