Somewhat on-topic, how old should a dog be before you take them jogging with you? Redhead is about 11 months old, but I don't want to damage his joints by taking him too young.

I feed Redhead raw chicken wings. He likes them plenty, although at first he seemed to think that they were chicken-flavored toys.

Try to give your dog some variety. Chicken one day, beef the next, maybe then lamb or fish. Don't just feed muscle, feed organs (heads, lungs, stomachs, kidneys, liver, heads, bones) as well. If Hungary is anything like Ukraine, you can get all kinds of meat at farmers' markets. In designing a diet,...

I didn't know there were any downsides, either. I give Redhead the occasional drink of natural biologically active Russian yogurt. Plain or mixed with veggie juice for a "dog cocktail".

I&S: FYI, cooked meat is no more greasy than raw. The fat is already in the meat, cooking just melts the fat and makes it more visible.

But the fat in meat is good for a dog, as long as you don't overdo it.

Um, the commercial pet food industry is only about 100 years old, and most pet dogs in the US ate meat, raw and/or cooked, until about 50 years ago. (expletive deleted) lots of pet dogs still eat raw meat right now. On the other hand, I haven't noticed that feeding Kennl-K-Ration Gravee-Flavored Foo...

I roll my own. Frozen chunks of apple or pear or frozen banana peels. Dried anchovies, octopus, or calamari. Pieces of fake crab leg. (a favorite) Dry bread. Yogurt-covered cherries. Pieces of cheese. These Russian cookies that are sorta like Fig Newtons but with fruits other than figs.

I feed raw fish on occasion, head and all. FWIW, Redhead loves it, this might be his favorite meal.

Actually, it does seem that dogs are much more likely to be able to handle pathogens than people. So its a risk, but a manageable one if you think the benefits are greater. I'm more worried about raw food being eaten daily (I only handle raw food about once a week right now) and contaminating peopl...

A question: As I recall, MissKiwi said that one thing that concerned her with raw feeding was the fear of salmonella or other contamination. How do dogs manage this in the wild or on the streets? From what I understand, wolves are as much scavengers as they are predators, and stray dogs are notoriou...

MYSTERY MEAT!

A lot of the art of cheap RAW feeding is in where you get your meat. Round here, yo, you can head on down to the market and get all kinds of random meat cuts, chicken hearts, lamb entrails, calf stomachs, goat tails, fish heads, beef kidneys, all manner of bones and whatnot. Depending on the day, th...

Redhead wasn't quite sure what to do with raw food when he first got it - "is this a sort of chicken-flavored toy?" He figured it out eventually. He loves eating kibble, possibly more than raw. Just like most kids would eat rather garbage instead of healthy food, if given a choice. The fac...

I feed kibble for one meal and guess what happens?

I got home very late last night, snow kept me from getting home as scheduled. I didn't have time to get some raw food for Redhead, so I gave him a big bowl of the kibble that Sasha gave me. Redhead was hungry, and I was so late that it was almost breakfast time. One kibble meal for breatfast, and Re...

Can wheat allergies come on later in life? Redhead LOVES bits of dry bread as a treat, and he is not showing any itching or skin problems (knock on wood) yet.
