  1. Does anyone know dogs fed homemade and/or raw diets long term?

    Dog Food
    We are feeding our dog, a 6 1/2 month old Doberman, a homemade diet. She eats cooked foods and raw meats. I don't personally know anyone who has fed a dog anything other than a commercial diet, long term. I'd love to hear from people about their experiences, good or bad, and what the dog was...

However, recently I got some frozen pre-mixed raw from Petco (a sample bag of lamb protein bites) and tried giving him really just a half a handful of the frozen bites as a topper to his kibble one evening. Sure...

  8. Pork Bones and Organs?

    Dog Food
    I'm currently raising a pig who will be ready for slaughter in the fall, and was wondering if the bones and organs are safe for my dog. And if so, what organs should I have to butcher save? I have another question: is pork meat okay for her? It won't be her sole protein source (I make her...
  9. Raw Feeding and traveling - Potential inconveniences

    I plan on traveling with my puppy. I plan on raw feeding as early as possible, however I'm wondering if there are any complications on traveling with raw food.
