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...

Healthy food and supplement questions.

Hello all, as an update, I first came to pit bull forum when apollo was 8 weeks old with no idea about what was best, but knew I wanted a very healthy well mannered boy. He is now 10 months old and 70lbs with probably zero percent body fat, and is about to be neutered and enter a good training progr...

Re: poopy question

I am going to pick up some yogurt and try to finish off this bag of blue I have now. Would it be sort of like the pumpkin, about a tbsp mixed in to 2c of dry kibble? Also, if he LOVES the banana and pumpkin purees, will it hurt him to give him some for a little variety? Wet food makes him explode no...

Re: poopy question

Thank you all for the advice. Where is the diamond brand sold? I have heard good things about it from you all but don't recall ever seeing it. I will try probiotics before switching & if it doesn't help within the next month we'll do another fecal test.

poopy question

Apollo, my 5 mo has been on blue buffalo large breed puppy for the past few months and I am extremely happy with how healthy he looks, acts, his coat, etc... but he has had consistently squishy poops. I was told fish oil can make that happen so I stopped giving that and no difference. I try giving h...

Re: Healthy House Cleaning (Long but food for thought)

Do the essential oils you add to these mixtures serve any purposes other than making them smell good? I have two cats and a dog, so the tea tree, orange, and lemon are out of the question. Are all essential oils bad for my animals/three year old? Aside from this point, I love this entire thread. Gre...

Re: Pigs Ears.

I have found that natural pig's ears do not upset his tummy, nor do bully sticks... if they do not upset his tummy how are lamb's ears, beef tendon, and pig snouts? I like red barn products thus far and he loves his chewies at kennel time, so I'm interested in some of the other stuff... but I know r...

Re: Can't find the perfect diet???

Blue Buffalo Large Breed Puppy. As per this forum, for my three month old pup there are no other foods as close to the >1.2% calcium, <25% protein and close to = 10% fat parameters given to me since his parents are around 80 lbs for an all stages or puppy food. (By all means, share if you know of an...
