Re: Nutritional value/safey of cheaper cuts of meat ?

they did have a ton of salmon bones (still very fleshy actually) and heads for .99c a pound... since my dogs wouldn't be able to eat a whole salmon in a day with the amount they should eat healthly, would salmon heads & "bones" work better than canned or filets for a meal a week of fi...

Re: Nutritional value/safey of cheaper cuts of meat ?

Im quoting below within. But for starters, dogs dont exactly care about what part of an animal they are eating. Wild canids for example, may or may not have preferences (my bully hates organ meat's texture for example) but if they are hungry they will eat just about any meat, it's a different ballp...

Re: Nutritional value/safey of cheaper cuts of meat ?

omasum is the 3rd stomach chamber in a cow. That's all I got :D I was going to say essentially the same thing :D So I'll hold off on that one, haha. I believe the omasum looked really clean for what you all are describing it as... it's probably lost nutrients sort of how grocery store tripe does wh...

Nutritional value/safey of cheaper cuts of meat ?

After finding my "bulk sources" for chicken backs, leg quarters, turkey necks, drumsticks, neckbones, and tripe I went exploring yesterday. :) My goal is less than $1.50 a pound, but my bulk items are all less than a dollar, so as long as it's ballpark (or sometimes a special meal) I'm goo...

I don't recall off hand if that oil is in totw.. :-/ But that is the only formula they have with no chicken or anything in it. It was strictly fish. Even the Bison one had chicken in it. So I can't feed any other of there formulas. :-/ The kind they are being switched to now, I have read reviews an...

Recently I know quite a few people have been having issues with TOTW all of them had fed it for a while and just recently issues started to pop up so that may be what the issue is as well. The issue with yeasty paws is generally the cylce. Is TOTW one that contains sunflower/safflower oil? I rememb...

Re: Oils supplements

Do those of you who use hemp or coconut oil do that instead of fish oil or as a source of vitamin E? If I can get it down to one bottle that would be great but if salmon and flax seed oil will be the best and the cost is not too outrageous, I'm sure it'll be done. :P As far as special needs, I've go...

Re: Costs of raw feeding

^^^Thank you so much! This should really help find more local resources, which is sort of my last step before making the switch.

Re: Another one for the RAW experts!

I can usually ONLY find hamburger at .99/lb and I'll buy 5-10 lbs of it. (tho I bought london broil once at like $1.50 in desperation - but I really only like to go over a dollar a pound for things like liver/heart/kidney/chicken feet - otherwise, I only buy when at a dollar OR LESS per lb.) I do h...

Re: Another one for the RAW experts!

It seems like you have done a lot of homework! Good questions. :thumbsup: I'm trying to learn as much as I can, everybody here is so very helpful :bowdown: I'm not at the mental or financial point of picking farmed or wild for my dog, so I only buy what is cheapest. My preference (and I can't find ...

Re: Costs of raw feeding

I would actually start with the chicken or turkey and then add a red meat as the 2nd thing you try if you can. Also as far as necks. Beef neck may be a little to hard. I have fed turkey necks and actually fed them a lot in the beginning. As Khan became more stabilized/adjusted it is quite a bit of ...

Re: Costs of raw feeding

I'll keep my eyes/ears open for cheaper sources. We go to the DC meat market for our meats. I prefer this raw plan over the pre-packaged raw food, so that's why I don't really look around for places that ship. I guess we're now at $0.20/lb for backs and $0.57/lb for quarters. The organs and beef he...

Re: Costs of raw feeding

Wow, the backs and necks are pricey in your area! I'm sure there's got to be cheaper finds. We pay $8 for a 40# case of backs (and they're pretty meaty, which is nice). We don't feed necks -- I've heard they're just way too much bone and generally small for most dogs. The chicken quarters have gone...
