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

Salmon is only an issue depending on where it was caught....I don't have my info with me right now or I could say which was risky and which was safe....I'm sure someone will chime in. I also agree with Mya & the...I would really watch variety. I have been feeding my dog raw for months and he do...

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: OFFICIAL e-collar debate thread

I would be greatly upset if something was done to my dog without me knowing. It's unfortunate that some people will do things behind a customers back... Honestly, I think a good training facility wouldn't give you a "deadline". Where we take Gavin they do use the e-collar if you choose to...

Re: OFFICIAL e-collar debate thread

White0nr1ce, never allow anyone to train your dog "out of sight". There are trainers who are scumbags and some of them are taken in high consideration because they have a couple of titles, reviews and what not, but when you look in to the reality of what they are doing.....it is sad and w...

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...

Re: OFFICIAL e-collar debate thread

I definitely learned a lot from the situation. It seems like I got the answers I wanted to hear from the questions I asked... and then it was something completely different that was presented once I was on my way out the door. That's why I'll definitely ignore the convenience aspect next time around...

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...

Re: OFFICIAL e-collar debate thread

Honestly, I'd pull the dog unless I was *certain* they'd never do anything without telling me again. That's kind of my issue. I went for a more expensive place so his training would be guarunteed or my money back. I was having trouble finding boarding for a pit bull for a few three day weekends I'l...

Re: OFFICIAL e-collar debate thread

As an e-collar user, I'd be HOT if someone trained my dog with methods that I wasn't made aware of upfront. Then again, I'm not fond of "doggy daycare" for this breed and I wouldn't allow people at a doggy daycare to "train" my dog. As your dog's owner, you have to have input on...

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...

Re: OFFICIAL e-collar debate thread

I put Apollo in a doggy daycare that trained during the day while I was at work... did much research, and had good reviews. The owner seemed very knowledgable and relatively open to my dogs needs as I described them. The training lasted five weeks of me dropping him off in the morning and picking hi...

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...
