Good to hear. Is she staying overnight or coming home later?
There really aren't recipes for raw. 80% meat, 10% organs and 10% bone. I feed a mix of meats. Chicken, turkey, pork, beef, lamb, goat, veal, fish, rabbit, quail, duck, deer and any other meats I can get. Tonight was a mixed meal night, Freyja got a lamb bone and meat with some duck liver. Vegas and Shorty got a lamb bone with some beef liver, a bit of pork and a goat testicle. You want to feed about 2-3% of your dogs ideal body weight, but I find my dogs eat a bit less than that. Freyja only eats about a pound and a half a day, Shorty only needs around 8 ounces. I picked up a bunch of chicken today for .77/lb and beef for 3.00/lb along with some pork for just over a dollar per lb. I order the odder things online. Like green tripe, whole ground cow, duck heads and raw trachea. You would want to start with chicken. It's easy on most dogs. You'd feed that for a few weeks then add in a new protein. You want a little extra bone when you first start out, it will help keep their poop firm as their bodies adjust to the new food. I encourage people to switch to raw, but I'd probably wait until your girl is healed from her surgery.raw feed? do you have a simple recipe for that? i wonder how much it costs a month to do that for two basset hounds
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.hmm.. when i checked her incision this morning when i gave her an antibiotic, i heard sort of a fart sound and some brown ooze came out of the incision site.. how concerned should i be? overall her health has been improving rapidly
id get a second opinion of it doesnt seem right. maybe cut back on amount of food giving her too for nowso 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
