Raw bones

When you give your dogs raw bones, at what point do you take them away? OR do you let them finish them completely? My two are slowly chipping away at bones they've already cleaned, and seem to have no interest in stopping. Should I allow them to continue, or is it unsafe?

Just checkin'.

I guess as soon as we finish up this canned food we got to cheer her up and to hide her meds in, we will be picking up some whole chickens I will experiment with cutting up lol I'm too big a weenie about meat for that. I just get them already-cut portions and feed those with some yogurt or oils and...

I've thought about getting the HK, but I wish I had somewhere closer that sold it! That might be a better alternative price-wise than the NV pre-mix/Taylor Pond Farms I'm using now. I ordered it through SitStay.com, but am trying to get a local store to carry it. It sounds as though the owner is pr...

We've been doing the HK for almost a month now. I decided to start with Embark, one of the grain-free mixes. I've been supplementing with chicken thighs, backs, and wings and turkey legs and necks, as well as eggs, yogurt, and various vegetables. The fresh meats, eggs, yogurt, and veggies make up at...

It's totally normal, though we REALLY have to police Bart. He'll graze all day (and eat other nasties that are hiding in the grass) if we give him the chance. He's worse than a goat--he's a lawnmower! I don't know what we're going to do with our yard when we move. Right now, it's paved, which is not...

Well, we just returned from a 30 minute fetch-fest at the lot. Keely is 100% back to normal today. Nothing I did could keep her from flying through the air and making spectacular aerial catches. She was extremely happy. I'll be doing as much research as possible about ways to reduce seizures, and we...

good luck, I thought about you and your girl last night after I signed off and a couple things that came to mind are I haven't seen a single seizure or even tremor since we started raw and also my vet assured me some dogs (we weren't the lucky one's) only have one seizure their whole life, so finge...

Poor babies. I feel terrible for them! I'm glad they'll only go uphill from where they were.

I hate people so much sometimes.

My Hannah has seizures, ask the vet about liver shunts, hypoglucemia and thyroid irregularities as well as epilepsy.... I'm soooo sorry trust that I know exactly how it feels. Hannahs first seizure was on my bed, she woke me up with a bloody scream and seized, voided bowels, bladder, bit her tongue...

I wonder if glucose to have on hand would be a good thing for her??


Yeah, now that I know it's an issue, I'll be prepared. We always have honey in the house, so I can use that if needed.

I hope she is OK. Please keep us posted


I will. Today she's just sleepy, but so is Barty. Yesterday was enough to exhaust all of us. It's 2PM and I'm still in PJ's.
