Re: Another dog death blamed on dog treats...

I'm not much of 'treat' giver. I can't even remember the last time I bought packaged treats for my dogs. I use their kibbles for training and treats around here are scraps from butchering goats or sheep, bones, hide, organs etc. Reading this is just reinforcement to me to not buy treats.

Re: Javma research on home-cooked diets for chronic renal di

Interesting stuff. Is there a copy that goes into more detail as far as what these diets were made with? Ingredients used and amounts.

Re: Good News :)

It sounds to me like you still live with your parents. I understand if they are stubborn and wont switch what kind of food they buy. Dog chow may not be the best but there are worse foods out there. Is there any way you could get a part time job after school and buy your choice of food for her? Even...

Re: too skinny?

From that picture he doesn't look skinny. I like a trim animal with good muscle tone. I like myself to be also, but right now I'm a bit chunky from the long winter and eating out at work. My pit bulls are a bit chunky too, but we are all getting in shape now that its warming up!

Re: Snacking in the yard

Something I have noticed with my dogs is when I feed them raw, on days they get a lot of bone in their meal, they wont even touch a turd. My pit bulls would never eat poo, but I have sled dogs and a few of them will do it. Not sure if this helps your situation in any way.

A while back they added pea protien and I wasn't sure if it would affect her so looked around for another food for her. I found the nutro grain free was similar, had pea protei...

Re: Treats on BARF Diet

I am not much of a treat giver, but when Amelie was on a raw diet I would treat her with things like chicken feet or dehydrated liver bits. She has allergies to a lot of things, so I keep it simple. She is now on a venison an potato kibble due to my lack of time to feed her raw and she is doing pret...
