  1. Most of the people I know feed Taste of the wild. I think I've heard Acana/Orijen can be too rich. I can't recall who told me that though. I feed raw only.
  2. I need to look for that pic- I think I have it burned on a CD. She's wearing her crabby collar in it too. lol
  3. Passion 10/16/17-5/25/17 My beautiful baby raced over the rainbow bridge yesterday. I had her 13 years. I have so many things I want to share but how do I do that in just a few sentences and a few pictures? 13 years of memories- many happy, many, many frustrating and lots of laughs. This is actually the 2nd post I've typed. Stupid Fb poofed the first one. Not sure I have the heart to re-write it all. I'm trying to type this through tears. There will never be another greyhound like Passion! I would love it if you would post memories of her, even if you never met her but knew her through my post
  4. I sent a text to his owner. He said he had an ankle injury.
  5. I know McGraw He was in the kennel I worked in for a few months at PB. He's a big boy, right?
  6. I'm having such a hard time with him gone. It sucks
  7. My beautiful boy is running pain free. Lucky was the sweetest dog. He was my heart dog. He arrived as a foster in September 2008 & after a few hours, I knew he wasn't leaving. He loved to sing & was always the first to throw his head back & belt out a rooooooo. I will miss him so much. We decided not to do X-rays. When it was time to leave for the vet, he couldn't get up. I knew it was time. We did it in the parking lot at the vet. Lucky loved car rides so it was the perfect send off. I whispered how much I loved him as he slipped away. Right after he took his last breath, the su
  8. Just picked up 200 lbs of beef last night. On the 19th, I'll get 100 lbs of chicken.
  9. I have 5 hounds. Thunder has seizures so I started him on raw July 2013. A few weeks later, I started Passion who is 11.5. Around Sept/Oct, I started the rest. I will never go back to kibble. I don't even like to feed treats now and would rather feed dried meat instead. Lucky was a picky eater. Now he body slams me when it's time to eat. He loves it. When I first started, I thawed out all the meat, weighed and put a days worth in ziplock bags. It was too time consuming & messy so I stopped. Now I just thaw out 10 lbs of beef and 10 lbs of chicken and weigh out each pups meal
  10. I have been selling it so let me know if you want to buy any.
  11. Liver gives Lena the squirts no matter how little I give her. The others love it. No advice. Maybe mix it with the other meat so they can't tell?
  12. They only need a tiny, tiny bit of liver a day. It's not a meal.
  13. How old is he? Lucky has been marking in the house for about 2 hours. I think it's anxiety and I know some of his triggers. I started him on trazodone 2 weeks ago. He's only marked twice since there so it's better.
  14. I asked the local butcher if I could buy trim from them. They said they use it for sausage filling. yuck- not gonna eat sausage anymore
  15. I don't have advice but if you want to check prices on doxy- look at this website for your area. goodrx.com It saved me over $100 a month on Thunder's seizure meds. You might want to join the tick group and ask them there. Here's the link http://apple.ease.lsoft.com/scripts/wa-PLUTO.exe?SUBED1=TICK-L&A=1 Links to information on tick-borne diseases and related topics can be found at http://saluqi.home.netcom.com/ticklinks.htm They were just talking about the doxycycline hyclate vs doxycycline monohydrate. Might be something to check on. Good luck- hope this works for y
  16. Thunder loves rabbit. I'm trying to talk a friend into catching rabbits at his farm for me.
  17. They are the same cows that are used in kibble The chunked beef looks like something from the butcher and I'm tempted to eat it myself.
  18. http://www.bigdanstrucking.com/Beef-Products.html They do ship if you want to buy from them
  19. sorry, I meant .55 (cents) a lb It does not have any bone in it. The bone is from the chicken quarters which I get for .59 lb Yes cannon butt is the Big D.
  20. Recommendations for Beginning Raw Feeding (from RAW feeding) 1. You`ll want to start with 2-3% of your dog's (or puppy's) ESTIMATED IDEAL ADULT Weight. *** That is, per day. Its important to judge each puppy as an individual, taking their own parents and adult sibs as a guideline. Write each estimated weight down on a simple chart, if you must, to keep the pups sorted out in your head. **** Tweak with more meat if your dog gets a bit skinny, a bit less if your dog gets 'fluffy' over the space of a few weeks. **** This means, that the above "formula" is only a BEGINNING place. You will
  21. What is the calculation so you know how much to feed ? 80% - meat- red meat should be main source. 10% - bone 10%- (5% organ, 5% liver). I feed mainly beef chunks which I get for $55/lb. I feed no teeth Passion ground beef but she can also eat a chicken drumstick pretty easy. Chicken bones are very soft. Do you take skin off ? the meat I get does not have skin but you should trim excess fat How much bone do they need ? 10% and they do not need it every day Is it OK to stick to one kind of meat (such as chicken only) or should you rotate ? Red meat should be main meat Do you su
  22. That's a bummer Trazodone is so cheap. I can get 200 pills for $10
