  2. Raw Feeding
    Good Morning, I recently started feeding my six month old lab mix puppy a raw diet. I'm trying to be diligent about getting my portions right, but I'm a bit confused about the bone thing. I read that bone should make up 10-15% of her diet. My question is whether that means 10-15% actual bone...
  3. Raw Feeding
    I just started feeding my six month old puppy a raw diet, and I'm unsure as to whether or not I'm giving her enough bone. My understanding is that the diet should contain 10-15% bone, but is that 10-15% actual bone or 10-15% meaty bones like chicken/turkey necks, chicken backs, and other...

    Trying to Wean my cat off kibble and feed less I'm trying to have my cat eat more canned food in his diet instead of kibble.

    Hi, I am having trouble putting weight on our 2nd rescue Boxer. He is roughly 1 1/2 year old & very active. I had him on Eukanuba puppy, no luck gaining weight. I have since switched to Blue Buffalo & he is still very thin. I brought him to the vet & his bloodwork came back normal. I wanted...
  9. Dry and Canned Dog Food
    Hey forum, My parents always had larger dogs and figured they are similar to smaller breeds. After being away from home for 5 years I return to see the small/mid size breed dog had become an obese one. He is at 36 pounds. For more than 2 months now I have cut his food portion drastically to even...

    I have an 11 year old Doberman. She is spayed and basically healthy. She has a tendancy to be on the heavy side and especially as she's aged and become less active. I know it's important to keep her on a diet designed for seniors but I'm having a hard time finding something that also is...

    I know that this is a typical, often covered topic, but i'm new. As you may know we just got a new puppy, Chloe. I really get the feeling that the best food approach is a natural raw prey method. Chloe is a 5 month old boston terrier. I've read "Raw Feeding 101" by Bill Carnes, as well as...
