Most feed raw meat because cooking destroys nutrients. I personally don't see the point of feeding meat if you're going to kill nutrients first, but to each their own. The only time cooked meats are actually bad though, is if they're heavily spiced or dripping in sauces. Dogs don't need that stuff....

Keep in mind there aren't that many GOOD owners out there that will do your dogs justice. So if you're thinking about breeding lots of litters, it's hard to find responsible homes for that many dogs.

I would say, if your goal is breeding pits, what is your breeding goal? What do you wish to accomplish by breeding?

There doesn't have to be redness or swelling to mean the anal glands are plugged up. I'd take him in and have it done, and have them show you how to do it at home in case it happens again. They might charge you for an exam, but if you don't have it done they can get infected, and it can get bad real...

6pak, she's concerned because there are studies saying that wetting food with citric acid increases your dog's risk for bloat. To be honest, there's so much conflicting information that I'm not sure I'd be concerned about it. I think it's great that you mix up his food like that. Variety is importan...

If she smells that bad, I'd guess she has a skin infection of some type.

Do you see any discoloration(red, orange, or black) of her toenails, or in between her toes?

That is true, but when the extra is whole fish, that in and of itself is balanced.
