Re: "Dogs need by products"-Vet

Euthanized pets found in dog foods is a myth... there was a study over 10 years ago that DNA tested 20 of the most popular dog foods and found NO dog, cat or horse DNA in the foods. They did find other meats that weren't supposed to be there, like chicken in the beef food, but that was it. You are ...

Re: My experience with antlers

Yeah, my dogs teeth are pretty worn and I've gone the extraction route for broken teeth from bitework in the past but have since changed my stance on extractions. I only choose extraction if the tooth is infected and painful. My vet checks every questionable tooth to see of it bothers the dogs and t...

Re: Feeding Raw

I've been meaning to say that this thread was not intended to put feeding kibble in a bad light or to say that anyone should switch to feeding a raw diet or that my way is the best and only way. We all do the best we can, or at least that is my hope. I do think the "it could be worse" ment...

Re: Feeding Raw

Well I don't think I could ever do the prey model - especially the rabbits! But tonight we are throwing in some chicken backs for our dogs for the first time. :) Glad to hear you're taking a little raw food adventure. A word of advice/ caution. If mixing raw with kibble you should expect some stoma...

Re: Feeding Raw

The dogs actually ate the guts and poop first. Gobbled it right up.

Re: Feeding Raw

Below you can see the pix I took this morning. I thawed a jumbo rabbit overnight and decided to cut it up before even attempting to feed it to the dogs. The rabbit was whole, meaning everything was left as it was the moment the rabbit was killed and exanguinated. There was food in the stomach and po...

Re: Feeding Raw

this may be a little off topic...but, Vin you mentioned using coconut oil, and so have others. Would you mind sharing the advantages of using it? And where to get it? http://i1232.photobucket.com/albums/ff372/lilbulldogs/FEEDING%20RAW/P1030831.jpg Coconut oil supports heart and thyroid health despi...

Re: Feeding Raw

Speaking of prices and real meat. I just got an email from a very well known local organic farm. They are doing a slaughter and will have a whole bunch of chicken and duck necks and meaty backs and organ meats for me at $2 a pound. They give me big boxes with portioned bags. Now I need to work this ...

Re: Feeding Raw

Science is certainly not the be all and end all answer as it stands, nutritionally, medically, behaviorally or otherwise. Maybe some day it will be but there is just so much 1)that we do not know and 2) corruption. Let's not even get into something like PLACEBOS. Talk about the wool being pulled ove...

Re: Feeding Raw

I guess I sorta measure, but it is like "big handful, little handful." When I was making meals this morning I noticed that I actually do give the bigger dogs a slightly bigger handful than the little dogs, so my statement about the dogs all getting exactly the same amounts of everything ex...

Re: Hip surgery AGAIN, need experiences please

I don't think the amount of money one spends or the number of invasive surgeries one has performed on a dog determines if one is a good owner or not. I think making decisions based on what will give your dog the absolute highest quality of life with the least amount of physical and emotional pain an...

Re: Feeding Raw

There is no benefit to researching "PRO" raw as Consumer Products Firm can NOT make money from you feeding raw to your dog. In fact they make LESS money if you do as kibble and canned foods are "waste systems" for non human quality meats and veggies. The grains in kibble are not...

Soft Boiled Eggs I do them 30 at a time and it takes about 5 minutes total, mostly waiting. http://i1232.photobucket.com/albums/ff372/lilbulldogs/FEEDING%20RAW/P1030715.jpg Fresh Organic Blueberries from our local berry CSA http://i1232.photobucket.com/albums/ff372/lilbulldogs/FEEDING%20RAW/P1030716...

Re: Feeding Raw

Don't mock, I am actually asking... My dogs eat horse poop and hoof trimmings. Aside from manure from a recently wormed horse, has anyone heard of negative side effects of eating it? I ask because it really firms up Nuggets poop, and seems like a natural way to get his greens, so to speak. Nothing ...
