  2. Switched to raw for 5lb chihuahua, seeing immediate results???

    Dog Food Forum
    Today I started my Chihuahua, Daphne, on Natures Variety Raw Instinct, after reading that the sodium content and preservatives in commercial kibble can have a greater negative effect on Chihuahuas vs. larger dogs, because of their size. I've had her for a little over three weeks, and...

We feed them a diet of raw mince beef + raw turkey + rice + raw veg (zucchini, carrot, butternut, cabbage and green beans).

  4. Raw for Cats - getting started?

    Other Pets
    Just wondering if anyone has some good resources for getting Murdoch started on raw? The only caveat we have is we have to avoid Red Dye #3 and Salmon. Other fish/seafood seem fine, however. Thanks! Also, things like: is it okay to feed the same thing for a few days in a row? Do all meals...

  6. Excessive Diarrhea, what to do?

    Dog Health Questions
    Hi All, I've got an 8 month old rottie mix who has had explosive diarrhea off and on (but mostly on) for what's going on a week now. The first day he was horrendously sick and also vommitted up stuff that had a strange resemblance to the diarrhea I was cleaning up. So I'm not sure if he ate his...
  7. raw food diet--shedding

    Dog Food Forum
    Hey, I'm new to this raw food thing, and have only been doing it for a few months now (I've kind of lost track of when I started). Basically I switched because I was spending at least 150$ per month feeding kibble and my two little dogs didn't even want to eat it. I read about raw food and saw...
  8. Changed Dog Diet

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi. I've had my dog for 8 weeks. She's always been good for asking to go outside when she needs to go. I changed her diet recently from dry food to wet food, thinking it was more healthy for her. For about 4 days she's had constant reoccurring accidents in the house. I never caught her in the...
  9. Raising food to feed raw - Rabbits / fish?

    Dog Food Forum
    Hello! I live on a farm and have two large (~100 lbs. each) dogs. I had thought about raising my own "raw food", and the two things that grow quickest on cheap feed are rabbits and catfish (or maybe carp). I have a little pond that I've been attempting to raise koi in, but it stays muddy (due...
  10. Raw food changing behavior?

    General Dog Forum
    Hello everyone, maybe you can help me with a disagreement I have with my roommate. It's always been hard to get Dahlia to eat what and when she's supposed to. And today, finally fed up with sitting on the floor hand-feeding her, I decided to try a variation of silky balls to entice her to eat...
  11. Problems with feeding raw

    Dog Food Forum
    Hello! I'm very new here, and I wanted to write about an experience I had recently and I also wanted to ask you for some tips. I read all the good stuff about raw diets, and I kind of rushed into it with my dog (a mixed breed rescued from the local shelter). He has almost 30 kg (26,7kg) and is...
