Re: anyone with issues with there dogs chewing feet

Kanobis' foot chewing is gone. I tripled his fish body oil supplement to 2500mg a day(therapeutic dose) (fish body oil [EPA/DHA] is a natural anti-inflammatory). I am glad that is over with. He is now up to his daily intake of organs.. some days a bit more, depends on the main protein. I also make m...

Re: anyone with issues with there dogs chewing feet

Kanobi isn't on a pro-biotic yet.... I finally got my beef kidney and pancreas today. Gave him a taste of both as I was cutting and he came back looking for more... the heart I got today was only about 3 lbs, usually they are around 5 lbs. I stocked up on chicken today, found it for .79 cents a poun...

Re: anyone with issues with there dogs chewing feet

I figured out the allergy... it is fresh cut grass... he only seems to get them the first few days after the grass is cut. I did correct his paw licking, very rarely do I see him licking now. finally sourced beef kidney and pancreas... I should have them in next week. The butcher shop I go to, almos...

Re: anyone with issues with there dogs chewing feet

2 meals on the new beef source with no bumps presenting during or after the meals... had to be something in the blood of the beef heart that was causing the issue.

I will double his dose of EPA/DHA for the rest of the week to build his Omega 3 levels.

I hope no one here needs these guidelines, but with Fukushima Daiichi getting worse by the day, I felt this was necessary information.

Re: anyone with issues with there dogs chewing feet

he was on a quality kibble (Natures Variety) for the 9 months prior to switching to raw. do you really think his Omegas would be that far out of balance even with the decent kibble he was fed?

I will definitely bring up the GT when I go to the farm...

Re: anyone with issues with there dogs chewing feet

when I give leg 1/4 or breast, I have been removing a majority of the skin.... I should have done it to the whole chicken I fed yesterday, but I forgot to, though I remembered to cut off the wings. I picked up a new beef source today and I will begin feeding it tomorrow, and see if the same issue oc...

Re: anyone with issues with there dogs chewing feet

Do you know your bone/meat/other ratios? I know the correct ratio is 80-10-10 I get pretty close to that within a weeks feedings.... I am still trying to source organs locally. it is definitely not a staph infection... it never presents until there is a "bloody" meal given, ie beef heart o...

Re: anyone with issues with there dogs chewing feet

he may also be detoxing.... he has been on a raw diet now for almost a month. I have seen other signs related to detox in the last week or so; mucus on stool... small pimple like bumps that appear then dry up and go away in a day or so, and have begun to appear much less frequently. I clean his feet...

Re: anyone with issues with there dogs chewing feet
