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...

Re: Costs of raw feeding

I'm interested to know how much YOU pay to feed your dog/s raw. For me, it would be a single approx. 50-80lb pit bull terrier I would be feeding. I live in BC, Canada, but any approximate monthly cost from experience I think would help me grasp what I'd be dealing with. I, too am starting raw soon ...

Re: Supplements

My dad broke his neck when he was 17 and was luckily able to walk, etc after months of being in crazy head gear, but has had arthritis since. He's a firm believer in those expensive pillows, heat therapy, stretching, and tiger balm he finds in asian markets. He also wears one of those magnetic brace...

Another one for the RAW experts!

After numerous searches within this forum and several of the other links you all have provided, I've still got a few questions and I'm really excited to start Apollo and Jewels on raw so... probably a little anxious. :aha: 1. Which fish do you believe to be the healthiest to feed your dog? Which fis...

Re: Premium Blue Ridge Beef Products

Are the shank bones one of the ones that can break teeth? What about knuckles?

Premium Blue Ridge Beef Products

I was wondering if you all have any experience with Blue Ridge Beef Products. http://www.blueridgebeef.com/products-raw-beef-chicken.html A butcher in my area carries them, and if you all have any experience it'd be good to know what's in the "lean beef" or "breeder's choice" chu...

Natural allergy relief for dogs?

Apollo has had the WORST snot oozing from his nose and eyes since our pollen level went crazy last week! He's also been licking his paws which he's never really done before but they're not super raw or anything (yet). You all seem very knowledgeable on natural remedies which is the route I want to t...

Re: Healthy food and supplement questions.

got any photos? I mean zero body fat isn't good really!

Not really zero - just very lean and healthy too! I will try to get some pics up sometime this week, I'm on a work computer now. The vet said for being a lazy house dog he was one of the healthiest she had seen... lean and toned. :)

Re: Healthy food and supplement questions.

Personally, I think large breed adult foods are just a gimmick for the poor confused people who don't know the reasoning behind the food they feed. I learned a lot about that with the "large breed" puppy foods... the BB was one of few that was in the parameters for a healthy large breed p...
