You don't need to get all the odd stuff. Chicken, beef, pork and oily fish are a good staple, add in some turkey, veal and lamb once in a while and your good to go. All this I can find at my local grocery store. Duck and rabbit are also easy to find. But the more variety the better. If you know any hunters you can ask them for their leftovers/trim or freezer burnt stuff.

i havent done much hunting in the past as i personally dont have much of a desire to eat rabbits, squirrels, duck, or other wild game, but i may consider getting into this more as a source of meat for dogs

right now though my dog scarfed down more of this homemade food than she ate the last 3-4 days prior to surgery, so this is obviously a very good sign

That is great that she is eating and on the mend.

I've wanted to take up hunting to help feed the dogs. Nevada my GSD who passed last year loved venison, rabbit, squirrel, pheasant and groundhog. Freyja has never had wild game, but the boys have had venison, rabbit and duck. The cats eat squirrel. Wild game is a great meat source, I wish I had more available here.

well, i know if i was in a southern state id definitely be pig hunting since theres typically no bag limit on that.. id make sure the meat was cooked because im not a fan of giving my dogs trichinosis, but still, a lot of meat for cheap

Was/is there a bad smell as well? If not, probably nothing to worry about. Cuts will ooze a bit as they heal, just like a cut on you would. There is probably still some swelling from the surgery as well, as long as this is going down and she continues to improve I wouldn't worry. If it oozes a lot and/or smells bad I would call the vet and see what they think.

It the incision very swollen, red or warm/hot? How is she acting? Some gunk isn't unusual. If she is acting good, eating and it's not swollen and red I wouldn't worry. You could also call the vet if your worried.

so heres an update, after 10 days after the spay she went back to have her stitches out and the vet said she didnt heal enough yet to have them taken out.. besides a small amount of ooze coming from the incision, she looks bigger, not sure if she's bloated or packing on weight that fast (she's been eating like a pig).. but today she also threw up again... im not sure what to make of it
