Re: Yeast Infection? Please Help - With Pics

Yeah I know I can still feed raw, it would just be a bummer, because we get REALLY good deals on chicken quarters/chicken livers from this local market. I talked to the butcher and he assured me that all their meats are all natural and everything, even told me where they get it. I don't think think ...

Re: Yeast Infection? Please Help - With Pics

We got him TOTW lamb variety kibble (I miss raw already) to see if it was possibly the raw chicken we've been feeding recently, and already, the redness is miraculously better. It is still there, but it's not at all near what it is in the pics. I was hoping it wouldn't be an allergy to chicken, but ...

Re: Yeast Infection? Please Help - With Pics

My uncles dog suffers from this, the vet said it was allergies to food so he switch to a fish based kibble and it looks like its getting better. She got 3 medicines and it cure it in the first week completely, it just recently came back because they fed her chicken and it looks identical to your do...

Re: Yeast Infection? Please Help - With Pics

I'm not seeing markers for either bacterial or yeast infection... could be neither, could be both. It will take a skin cytology to know for sure. Your vet (if they're skin savvy) will take either clear tape or special sticky slides to get a sample of the skin cells and look at them under the micros...

Yeast Infection? Please Help - With Pics

I'm looking to find some people who have had similar skin issues. Is this a yeast infection? Leo has had issues with this same type of infection for quite some time now, and the prescribed medicine has not helped too much. When it gets back, like the inside of the hind legs, it seems to help that so...

Re: wellness

We fed Leo Wellness Core for about 5 months and he did great on it. I'd recommend the food to anyone. We then switched to TOTW because it was cheaper, but if you can afford Wellness, I'd try it out. Leo's poops were solid on both Wellness and TOTW, but I think that may differ per dog. We're now feed...

Re: Raw feeding books/sites

Honestly I read and skimmed through the entire BARF thread on here, then searched the site in google (for example, how much organ meat to feed site:pitbullforum.com) with any questions I was unsure of or needed help with. Then, I posted in the BARF thread a few times to make sure I had a hang of it....

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

I have learned to shop around.. I spend about 80 to 90 a month.. but that feeds 4 dogs who each eat between 1 to 2 pounds a piece. My advice would be to do your research and check out & compare prices from your local meat markets.. also you can join different yahoo groups to see what else is av...

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

Ah didn't realize you had replied! Well, as far as the trimming goes, WOW I can't believe I have been trimming the skin/bigger parts of fat for all of this time spending hours in my kitchen sink for nothing!! Doing some research on what you said, I see you are right and there is good nutritional val...

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

The salt for preservation makes sense. I wish I knew how much they used. I have looked all over the area for meat markets/raw food co-ops on Yahoo Groups, and this was the only one I could find. His poop came out blackish and tarry like there was a lot of blood in it a couple of weeks ago, and befor...

Oh and also, they have green tripe which I was thinking of trying, but don't exactly know how much I would feed if I went with say that performance blend ground.

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

Hey, if anyone has a minute to spare, I just got involved with a raw co-op in Central FL, and I'm not sure what I should be ordering. I'm trying to stick to the 80-10-10 ratio, but out of the products this supplier offers, it doesn't really say how much bone and everything is included in their produ...

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

Back for an update and a question. Well, I've really got the hang of this raw thing now I think. The only issue I think I'm having is that I haven't been able to find anything but chicken livers for organ meat. I know I should be getting another source of organ meat in there, I'm going to try a few ...
