Not only is it a myth but some people claim quite the opposite. Supposedly tearing meat and crushing bone satisfies one of their primal instincts and is very calming to them. I have read a couple of examples when really hyper dogs calmed down somewhat after being switched to raw food.

Thanks for that info! That makes perfect sense! He is still swallowing as big pieces as possible and is doing fine!

I'm glad you are having such a positive experience!

Have you started researhcing co-ops near you and subscribed to Carnivoire Feed Supplier on Yahoo Groups! That can help you get a "feel" of the market and save some money.

what are beef sweatbreads(are they the testicles?)
what are beef gullets?
I know that dogs love to eat testicles, they will stand and whine when the vet is castrating horses and goats. The dogs will run in and grab them the minute they are on the ground if your don't keep them tied or locked out of the stall where the animal is being deballed.
You would think balls wouldn't be so hard to get at the butchers right(wrong- not here, the men eat them)

I did join the carnivor yahoo group...I even found one for Tampa bay and they have a co-op but the pick ups are like an hour and a half to two hours away from me so....it isn't really worth the gas right now.

sweetbreads are thymus gland. We've done lamb sweetbreads before and everyone lieks them.

Gullets are like trechias (sp).

Thanks to Leslie!

they really do enjoy testicles!
I cannot handle feeding any kind of heads, a decapitated head is enough to make me seek Xanax.

nope. glands. Brain is brain is brain. though if they are trying to serve it to you in a restaurant they may call it something else.
