I didn't think of that, thank you for the suggestion! :)


Not a problem! I'm not one for grinding, but started with 3 week olds so ground worked for a while.

We bought a meat grinder and fed ground chicken quarters for a while until whole chicken quarters could be used. Worked well!

Re: boiled/baked boneless chicken

Our dog food freezer gets packed w/ chicken quarters and chicken backs, bagged in Ziploc bags. Generally, we get a month or 2 supply upfront in the freezer. Nothing has ever gone bad or been wasted...

Re: Bad tooth, what do you think?

The price is on par for what we paid here in Seattle to have Sadie's molar removed. No teeth were cleaned and no xrays were taken though, because we knew it had to be removed (slab fracture). It was $600 all said and done. It was a really big molar though. We're in the Northern VA/DC area and it wa...

Re: Bad tooth, what do you think?

I'd have it pulled. We discovered a cracked molar a few months ago on my youngest dog. Our vet had us bring him in the next morning for an extraction. During the surgery, she did call to say it *could* be saved with a root canal and she just wanted to make sure we knew our options. Granted, we went ...

Re: Gaining Weight

13 lbs in muscle? Wow. Posting pictures would help see if it's a good weight or not.

Re: allergy shots?

The serum is not that expensive. I think I pay $120 or $160 for a 6 month supply. He's now on maintenance injections so it's every 3 weeks. Not bad. And since we've been on the shots, he hasn't scratched himself completely raw anymore. Sure it's not a perfect fix, but it's helped tremendously.

Re: allergy shots?

I got the panel done and then the custom serum done. It's helped. I believe it's supposed to desensitize them to the allergens? If I'm not mistaken. Kane's never licked his paws raw, but he has some days where he's more itchy. I'll still pop him Benadryl on those days, but it's here and there.

Re: The Cost of Feeding Raw?

Wow, yea... we head to DC about once per month to stock up. That's the closest we could find for the best price. Luckily, it's still only about 30-40 minutes for us.

Re: The Cost of Feeding Raw?

Sorry for the double post, but I just sat here and crunched the numbers. Based on FransterDoo's formula, it would cost me about $150 a month to feed raw. I don't find that particularly cheap. Especially since the cost of vet visits, toys, treats, supplements, etc will not vary between a kibble fed ...

Re: The Cost of Feeding Raw?

A freezer is definitely a must, in order to get good deals in bulk. Our average cost per pound is $0.53. Our chicken leg quarters are $24 for a 40 lb box (4 boxes per month) and our chicken backs are $10 for a 40 lb box (1 box per month). The quarters are ginormous, and dirty, so they get their orga...

Re: Travel and raw...

Our weekend trips (dog shows), we just use a regular cooler to keep their raw in. Generally, we just take a couple bags of quarters or backs for their meals. Everyone eats in their crate, just like at home, so that's easy enough.

Re: Chicken jerky treats from China

YEARS ago, I used to feed the Costco chicken jerky treats. We never had any problems with them. It sucked to stop feeding them when the reports started coming out about the problems -- but wanted to be safe, not sorry.
