    Hi, I just got my brand new golden retriever puppy two weeks ago and I'm interested in feeding her raw. She is my first golden retriever and even though I have had other dogs before this would be the first time I have tried feeding a dog a raw diet. I wouldn't prepare the food myself but use a...

    Hi, we have a 9 1/2 month old Golden named Darwin. He is about 75 lbs so far. I have been feeding him raw for the last 5 months and am just buying 5 pound chubs of Vital Essence in different types (chicken, turkey, beef and duck). It is the prey diet and the chubs are complete in nutrition with...

    My pup LOVES the raw goat milk from Primal (and Honest Kitchen dehydrated version). I've read all sorts of good stuff from their site about it - does anyone know any proven nutritional benefits? Is there a vitamin/mineral analysis? If it has more than probiotics I'm willing to splurge on my...

    Does anyone know an online retailer that sells raw green venison or elk tripe? (not canned or dehydrated) Maya gets itchy from beef/lamb and i'm having a hard time finding an alternative - I did find one place called reelraw.com that sells a buffalo green tripe that i'm considering buying but...

    Some say it helps and some say to stay away... any experience?

    Going to attempt a home cooked diet since I'm not ready for raw... does anyone have recommendations on adding ground bone to the diet? Premade? Don't think I'll be investing in a meat grinder. Will butchers like at Whole Foods grind them for us?
  9. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi, everyone. I joined before I even got my puppy, but I haven't been on since we got him. He is now 6 months old (!) and he's adorable. I feed him raw occasionally, which was mostly quail until recently. Today, he didn't eat his breakfast (kibble), so I gave him a rabbit for lunch (first...

    Fairly new company. I'm interested in the dehydrated raw formulas. What's your experience and how much did you feed? I hear it can be quite expensive.... one issue I have with grain free/dehydrated formulas now is sometimes she gets a lil yeasty and I think it may be due to the potatoes/yams.

    Finally got a marrow bone for my 11 month old (the middle hard part between the 2 knuckles) - is it better/safer on the teeth to give it to her refrigerated or frozen? - how do you get the marrow out? I heard it can cause tummy issues so I want to take some out. When I got it, feels pretty...

    I'm not ready to step into the raw world, but I do feel dogs should get some bones in their diets. What are your thoughts on safety/benefits of ground up bones and which kind are the safest/soft/cleanest to start with? Still a nervous new parent. Oh, and how do you grind them up?? :wave:

    Both claim to just take the water out and keep the nutrients. Which is really better? Thanks

    Are these types of bones from the store safe (splintering..the way it's processed...sodium levels)? I thought they should be raw bones? American Meaty Shin Bone | Dog Bones

    I read that cartilage is also good for dogs (as they eat the entire prey out in the wild). I just took apart a chicken and was wondering if I should feed the pup the cartilage after it's been cooked?

    What type of raw bones are safe for puppies to chew on (10 weeks)? I heard "marrow" bones might cause tooth damage...I don't even know what that looks like. Are the safe ones from cows, pigs, chickens....and which body part? :)

    Decision time for a very nervous new parent! Been hearing great things about the raw diet and grain free foods. But also concerns about too much protein in diet. I've narrowed it down to some rather expensive brands :doh:: 1. Raw diet 2. Orijen 3. Blue Wilderness 4. Acana 5. Evo I know...

    Hi everyone, I just started feeding my 7 years old Golden girl raw, and I have some questions that hopefully you can help me with. 1. How much to feed? I read it should be 2-3% of ideal body weight, and here is my problem: she is overweight, 67 pounds. Her ideal weight should be around 60...

    This site contains a very interesting e-book about holistic dog care, I found it very well written, well researched and extremely informative. I thought I'd share the link here. http://www.achinook.com/journal/2009/6/18/ol-sheps-well-being-a-natural-perspective.html
