Re: Feeding Raw

Studies have to be funded. Virtually an impossibility... Vet schools won't do it as their funding comes from Proctor & Gamble (Iams, Eukanuba), Colgate-Palmolive (Science Diet)... This is a MYTH that I would really like to see stop. Those companies do not prevent studies from happening. Unfortu...

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.

Re: Warning - about corn cobs

Nugget ate a half cob three months ago, and a piece just came out last weekend.
Freaky.

Re: Hind leg(s) sore, limping after exercise. Need advice

Before I take him to see a vet, is there a natural supplement/food that I can look at for joint mobility? Should I gently stretch his legs before/after exercise? Glucosamine/chondroitin are good supplements for joints. I warm my horse up by walking her for a while, to loosen her up before asking he...

Either way, seeing what resources may be available at local shelters and rescues (including potential foster litter mates, feeding tips and vet care/testing) could be helpful.

Re: Found really sweet pitbull

Someone may be searching for her. Dogs can wander far and wide, so the owner may not know to knock or post in your neighborhood. Call or visit animal care and control and report a "found dog" ... They will match your description to reported lost dogs, and will make a record of the found do...

Also, how much slippery elm do you give? Nugget is 55-60 pounds, moderately active.

Re: evil pooh

@FBODGRL Chicken breasts with skin on... Not sure about the sodium. No bone involved. My other dog won't touch raw chicken, so I bought it (on a huge sale) thinking it would be a chance to see how well he would take to it-the idea being I would commit to whole chickens pending he likes them (he love...
