Re: Skin troubles - again!

For ease. Maybe try the Yumega Itchy Dog oil.....Full of salmon oil, evening primrose and Flax etc etc. Plus has added Vit E. Just easy for you to add that into his diet:)

Re: Transition to raw from kibble

Great going....well done 8) just use the 8-10% feeding rule as a base and adjust accordingly by observing your dog. Dogs, like humans, are all different and what is necessary for one pup, maybe different for another due to size, exercise, metabolic rate etc etc. But as Bid rightly said the older the...

Re: Feeding raw? Read this paper!

When a web site has the word 'truth' in the domain name, I generally give it a swerve because it's a safe bet it's run by nut jobs in tin foil hats living in their parent's basement. Actually that's how I imagined you :shock: :wink: At the end of the day it is more than obvious that you will never ...

Re: Feeding raw? Read this paper!

I actually use White vinegar for most things, including wiping down the work surfaces, The Dreaded Dog Freezer surface :wink: loo seats and most other cleaning requirements. Like you i do use bleach down the loo, and to clean the mop, but other than that I try to be as chemical free as I can. But th...

Re: Feeding raw? Read this paper!

There are risks with everything in life, and if you take precaution with everything and believe everything you read you will lead a very dull boring life IMO ! We are very different doo...

Re: Feeding raw? Read this paper!

Beeeerock where exactly does "raw come from" in your head ??? Im my experience much of my dogs food comes from the same butcher that I buy my own meat from (much locally sourced from pastured animals) , and is hence 100% traceable ?? He gives me bones, minces up heart, cuts up Liver, kidneys and gut...

Re: Feeding raw? Read this paper!

I totally understand peoples concerns, especially after just embarking on a raw journey, and hence reading everything you can about it 8) . Scaremongering usually comes from people that are "against" it, or out of there comfort zone and hence feel the need to disregard it to make themselves feel bet...

They drag bones and carcasses in the house, eat on the floor, in the garden, eat out of there bowls e...

Re: Raw food questions

Beerock, I didnt say that overloading the pancreas was the "only" reason for food allergies :shock: ...no Idea how you came to that conclusion. Its just "another" way that food allergies occur. Gut health, with lots of good bacteria is essential as the gut is responsible for how the immune system wo...

Re: Raw food questions

Dogs don't have the enzyme necessary to digest carbs in their saliva, but it is produced by the pancreas. A high-carb diet could therefore be considered a strain on their system. But they absolutely do have the ability to digest it. Absolutely correct.....However, the fact that its only the pancrea...

Re: Right!! I'm going to do raw

Hiya....long time no post!!! :oops: Please dont hammer the calcium supps :shock: ....You ONLY need those if youve not fed kibble for a while AND only meats and offal with No bone in for a long time. Dried food and foods like Naturediet have ample calcium in anyway so if you mix and match then NO nee...

Re: Considering feeding raw food...

All I can say is I have fed Raw for 6 years or so, and Ive not wormed my dogs for 2 years. I sent off fecal samples last month to worm count, and both of my boys were totally worm free 8) So No, there is deffo no increased risk with worms at all. Arch finds dead rabbits often and eats them too and s...

Re: vet recomended home cooked diet

No you dont, Dogs stomachs are adapted to handle large amounts of bacteria so unless your dog has a very poor immune system, raw without freezing is fine. How many dogs do you think find rotting dead rabbits, birds etc on walks and devour the lot?? Eat horse, sheep and cow poo etc, not to mention di...

Re: Been poorly and now we are a Doodles 'N' Poodles reject :(

Hi Mandi Sorry youve not been well. Im a Mod on Doodles N poodles and you most defintaley havent been rejected on purpose. Its a popular site, but unfortunately due to that we also get a lot of "spam" users so we reject a lot that look like spam because otherwise we end up getting a load of "viagra"...
