I do give buffalo ribs but I usually use them as entertainment, but I do believe you can feed them as a meal if they have a decent amount of meat on them. Maybe try chopping up the chicken for your one dog until he learns to chew it up. You might have to help him by holding the piece and getting him...

Muay is on an elimination diet. We feed only raw buffalo for 6 weeks and then add one thing back into the diet. If she reacts then we know that is an allergen. Many dogs are allergic to wheat and corn. It could be she is allergic to cook protein? I know Muay is.

Technically if your dog is a rescue or not a papered dog, couldn't it be considered a mutt? I suppose they could ask you for some sort of letter from your vet stating what breed it was. I'll be looking for new insurance in June as I found out that the company I'm with doesn't give out policies to pe...

My white boy used to get rashes like that all the time. You can give Benadryl (antihistamine) for allergic reactions. I also use aloe vera gel.

When you switch dogs food they will go through a detox period, which can include excessive shedding. Also, for your dog with allergies, I would suggest not feeding a kibble with chicken in it because it is quite often a source of the problem. For my dogs dry skin, I have found that Jojoba oil works ...

When feeding raw, game meats should be frozen to kill any parasites that may be in the meat.

Bones can be frozen, but should be defrosted before giving to your dog.

Go to the vet, have it aspirated and calm your mind. They can usually tell you right away whether it is fatty or not and what to do next. Better to be safe than sorry later.

Swimming sounds like fun. Have you considered doing agility or rally-o with your dog? We train indoors once a week, and most trials are indoors. It's really fun to do with your dog.

Totally sounds like allergies to me. You are going to have to figure out what it is that is causing it, either environmentally or food related. I usually use Aloe Vera Gel on my dogs to get the bumps to go down or in bad cases I've used Cortisone cream from the pharmacy (use sparingly as it thins th...
