    Dog Food Forum
    My senior corgi was recently diagnosed with diabetes. Prior to her diagnosis she had stopped eating (obviously) and got quite ill. Once she was on the mend she had no interest in her kibble at all. We feed Taste of the Wild. I switched her to Stella and Chewy's freeze dried raw and oh my...
  2. Can I defrost my dogs food (raw meat) and then freeze again?

    Dog Food Forum
    Hi all I have put my dogs on a raw diet and a couple of days ago i got 2 months supply of meat for them from naturesmenu.co.uk and put it all in the freezer as soon as it arrived (it came frozen). My dogs are quite small and I feed one 160g per day (Chuwawa) and 260g (Yorkie). So i cant...
  3. Freeze-dried Raw Food mixed with Kibble?

    Dog Food Forum
    Hello all! Happy hump day :) So I have a question... I have my 2 boys, and one of them seems to be experiencing allergies which have been causing him some gnarly ear infections. We've been to the vet and he's on medication to get rid of his current infection but while I was there I was talking...
  4. Raw: Questions!

    Dog Food Forum
    (Bolded questions to make them easier to find) So I've been low on funds lately and my dog's diet has taken a blow. I almost went for pedigree ._. No disrespect meant to those who feed Pedigree, I just don't like that food at all. She has skin issues (she had a biopsy done, so will finally...
  5. Best Affordable Dog Dental Chew

    Dog Food Forum
    I wasn't sure if I should post this here, in the health topic or in the grooming topic so I apologize if this is in the wrong spot. ANYways, Luna is a kibble eater. And I've noticed that she's gotten a bit of tartar buildup on her back teeth despite weekly brushing. I'm probably going to try the...
  6. Should I stop giving any raw?

    Dog Food Forum
    Okay after hearing your supposed to wait like 8 hours between kibble and raw,I`m not sure if I followed that I can give any raw treats anymore. Sense feeding chicken necks or bones past midnight doesn't sound very appealing to me. Also he done well on it before,and giving eggs more than once a...
  7. Papillon Eating Raw?

    Dog Food Forum
    Alright, so after thinking about it, I would actually be interested in learning about raw for my Papillon. While I still can't see how commercial foods can be horrible for you dog, I do think he would enjoy eating raw. I think it would be fun for the both of us, but on the other hand I'm worried...
  8. Raw feeding -Tips to stop a gulper

    So I have 2 chihuahuas on a raw diet and their 10% bone comes from raw chicken necks. These are the only type that are suitable as a meal (otherwise they overeat and throw up) that are also readily available in my small town. Ive tried lamb a few times but one dog gets major bowel problems from...

    Dog Food Forum
    Hi Im just starting this thread in the hope that someone could give me ideas on how to get organs into my dogs raw diet.

  10. Kibble with high meat percentage - any risks and disadvantages?

    Dog Food Forum
    I have been trying to fix my dog's cronic colitis by, amongst other things, changing her kibble. After trying out 2 or 3 brands, a friend whose dog had the same problems with mine (same age, same breeder) recommended Carni Love, a Czech manufacturer's kibble which contains about 70% meat, some...
  11. What's so bad about by-products?

    Dog Food Forum
    I've been thinking about something. All of the premium kibbles that we feed our dogs are free of by-products. A feature which prides itself on quality. But my question is what is in fact so bad about them? I feed my dog acana, one of the highest quality foods available which is free of...

  15. Sources for raw feeding in Arizona

    Dog Food Forum
    I've hit up local butchers and stores, but haven't found anywhere that will sell me supplies at a reasonable price. Though I read all over that it's supposedly easy to find very inexpensive raw material for dogs, the best I was able to find was around $8/day for each dog. This was based on the...
  16. Any pro-raw vets?

    Dog Food Forum
    Not sure if this should be here or in health, but- I'm very interested in continuing school to become a vet. But I want to encourage people to feed raw and follow more holistic practices.

  18. Trying to start prey model diet for my pom

    Dog Food Forum
    My cats eat ground raw food that I buy from the store I work at. It's all locally sourced meat that has been ground by the owner herself (70% muscle meat, 10% bone, 10% heart, 10% liver), and I want to keep them on this because one of my cats has lower urinary tract disease, so it makes it very...

    Dog Food Forum
    Hi everyone! I'm new here and have been feeding raw for about a week or two after researching it for a few years. Every year in CA there's a grunion run on the beach and figured it would be the perfect time to get some free pet food! Now I don't know much about the fish other than it's ok for...
