  1. Hello everyone! I'll be rehoming a greyhound in a few weeks time but am so confused regarding what to feed him for breakfast and dinner. My greyhound, Benny, is 3 years old and around 33kg. A few adoption sites in Australia, I'm from there, recommend mixing wet meat with kibble. So, the diet would look something like this- Breakfast: 250g chicken neck/ chicken frame/ chicken wing Dinner: 1.5 cup kibble + 250g mince beef. I'm unsure of whether it'll be okay to mix wet meat with kibble from some sources though. My friend recommended me the PMR raw diet and has calculat
  2. Hi all. I'm the new proud owner of my first greyhound, London. We have only had him for a few days, but are already in love with him. I have made the decision to put him on raw food. Since my cats are already on raw food, I'm quite comfortable with it. I have started him on chicken leg quarters, with the plan to introduce other meats later. I'm trying to stick to one protein until he adjusts to keep an eye on any reactions. I added a spoonful of cottage cheese and some puréed veggies as well. I also gave him some Forti-Flora to help his tummy adjust to the new food. I noticed today t
  3. Hi humans and hounds, I'm back looking for more advice. We made the switch to Raw with Merlin and things have been fab. To start with we bought a mixed meat box and while he wasn't pooping as much he was still a bit runny which we finally figured was due to him having different meats. We placed our second order which was single meat - just chicken. All was going fine but he's started burping a few times a day and when he does it smells absolutely disgusting. I'm not sure what's going on with him! Any advice?
  4. Hello humans and hounds! I'm starting Merlin on a raw diet and wanted to run it past you lot just to make sure I'm not missing something obvious. So, I'm ordering this from DAF. 14 1lb minces which (according to the info) is a minced mix of 80:10:10 muscle offal and bone. According to the info I've read I need to give him 1lb per day, so am I correct in thinking this would be a good complete diet to get started with? How essential is it to add in veg as some sources I've seen say they get no nutritional value from veg while others say it's essential. If the mince has 10% bone already am I
  5. After that super long post about what dry food I should try next (I ended up with Earthborn, then back to Iams Sensitive) I decided, after tons of reading and recommendations (thanks Remolacha and NeedleNoseJake) I've finally made the jump to raw. It's been only 3 days, and I don't want to put the cart before the horse.. but they're both doing good so far. Here's what I did... I read the Raw Feeding Basics super thread... http://forum.greytalk.com/index.php/topic/242512-raw-feeding-basics/?hl=greyhound9797.. and after deciding to stop overthinking the bejesus out of it (or I would never ge

  7. This is really interesting and goes against what a lot of raw feeding information says about raw digesting faster than kibble and that there is danger in mixing the two. I personally feed both raw and kibble and have for years, so I appreciated this piece and am reassured that I am not putting my pups at increased risk. http://therawfeedingcommunity.com/2015/01/08/digest-this-kibble-may-actually-digest-faster-than-raw/
  8. The local pet store where our group hosts a monthly M&G had a rep from Stella & Chewy's handing out samples of the freeze-dried dinners. We tried a few varieties and our dogs liked them. So, before heading to Grapehounds NY, we bought a bag of the beef pattys to add into their kibble. We've done quite a bit of traveling with our hound pack. Thanks to Stella & Chewy's this was also the first time we didn't have to throw out any kibble. We crumpled up one patty in with their kibble, added water, and wound up with empty bowls at each meal. No upset tummies either. http://ww
  9. In the past, I used to feed my hounds up to 5 meals per week of raw, usually in the evening. I'd use turkey necks, all parts of chicken (even entire Cornish hens if they were on sale), and beef. Neither pup ever had any problems. I then moved across country and started living in an apartment without the convenience of a back yard to just toss the meat, let them out (one at a time!) and watch them eat from the window. I recently though I'd try again in fear of their teeth getting bad. Now I have to leash each dog individually with me in the kitchen and make them eat over the kitchen floor,
  10. Hey all. Sorry I haven't been around too much lately, life has been busy! Cora and Boaz are doing fabulously on the raw diet, we are following the guidelines from the suggested book "Raw & Natural Nutrition for Dogs" and have never been so impressed with a food change- with one small caveat... In all the reading, looking up and Googling, I read over and over that raw fed dogs don't eat poop. As a matter of fact, switching to raw has been touted as a solution to stop poop eating. Well, apparently, my dogs haven't read any of that because about a month after we started feeding raw, both
  11. Hello all my greyhound was just diagnosed with Osteo and had her front right leg and shoulder blade amputated on Wednesday. She is doing well and will start chemo in 2 weeks. I have been doing a lot of research on cancer killing diets herbs and supplements. Have any of you tried a new diet for your dog with osteo that has helped fight the cancer? I have read about switching to wet food that is high in protein low in carb since carbs feed the cancer cells. However, I hear that greys cant have only wet food because of gum disease. I also hear that raw diets are good but not for dogs undergoing
