I picked up a big 10 pound roast because I want to start feeding Leo other things. Just feeding Chicken/Turkey right now for his main meat/RMB sources. I noticed there is a decent amount of fat on the roast. So the question is should I aim to get it as lean as possible? Trim ALL the fat I can? Do you all try to get the meat as lean as possible? Oh also, Should I give him a slab of meat or cut it into small cubes you think? Thanks a bunch, I'm loving this diet

If you're going to buy anything from them then I'd go with the Performance Dog formula but honestly, that doesn't really float my boat either. Out of 6 ingredients, why is salt in there at all? strange.
WTR Green Tripe. My dogs eat is as a meal so they each get about a pound. We recently moved up to buying it in the 5 pound chubs which is 1/5 pounds for the big dogs and .5 pounds for the little guy. Then I just feed less the next day to balance the amount out.
Thanks for the info. Hmm I'm getting skeptical now. I wanted to order ground because sometimes Leo refused to chew bones and I'm worried something will get stuck. Just an fyi, it's 1.40/lb not 2.40/lb. from the co-op, I thought it was a pretty good price.
The salt confused me as well, but I also read of some people on here adding salt to diets so I thought it wasn't bad. I'll have to think about this a bit more I guess.

The next morning he was fine, so I attributed it to him swallowing too big of a bone and it doing something to his internals. Could be wrong, but the problem never came up again, so I don't think it's any kind of disease or anything else.
. Now, I feed him a leg quarter and if I don't supervise the eating and kind of hold the chicken to make sure he chews it, he'll swallow a whole drumstick if he can fit it down his throat! With turkey wings and bigger bones, he seems to break them up, but it's mostly with the chicken he has this problem, since the bones are small enough that he can just swallow it whole.
And another reason I want ground is that it's a lot of prep work to skin and trim the fat off of these meats we get, and I am going to have to leave my fiancee for work in a couple of months, and she isn't going to have time to do all of that. So it would just be easier.
