  1. Long time raw feeder, need advice on puppy’s sudden pickiness.

    Raw Feeding
    Hi all! I made this profile just to get a few more sets of eyes (hopefully) on a problem which is strictly confined to one of my dogs. I’ve been feeding raw for about ten years now, and I’m quite comfortable on the ratios, the difference in feeding puppies vs. adults in terms of weight and...
  2. At my wits-end with raw food

    Dog Health Issues and Question
    I fed my first shih-tzu a raw food diet and he thrived on it. When I got Brody, also a shih-tzu, three years ago, I started him on raw food. Everything seemed fine at first, but now at age three he has a very red rash on his groin and also under his leg, what we'd call our armpit. He...
  3. Dog won't eat raw

    BARF and Alternative Feeding
    I am trying to transition a 1 year old 10lb poodle. She will not eat any pre prepared raw food. I have purchased several high end brands frozen at the local pet stores. Also, there is a local raw food maker here in town. I have tried several flavors with no luck. She will eat whole meat...
  4. Did I cause further harm to my dog with raw food?

    Introduce yourself
    I've had dogs for years and fed them commercial dry dog food and had no real health issues with them. A few years ago we took in an older beagle, we think she's about 10 years old. She had apparently been neglected a bit by the veterinarian who was keeping her in his barn. Her teeth were...

  7. Raw food causing roundworms and tapeworms?

    Raw Feeding
    My Lab has been eating a raw diet (when available) for about 2 years. Recently she got both roundworms and tapeworms. Our (closest) vet is 6 hours away and sent out Sentinel/Interceptor to take care of the roundworm but we drove in to get the injection for tapeworm. She said we have to stop...
  8. Energy level.... and going into red meat?

    Raw Feeding
    So I've noticed that Piper's energy level seems a bit lower then normal the past couple of days. She's been on chicken backs and legs for 2 weeks now, no issues (well she threw up one morning, but it was chicken, no bones) and she's taking those chickens down like a pro. No cannon butt or...
  9. Feeding Your Dog a Raw Food Diet

    General Dog Discussion
    Ens uring that your dog receives proper nutrition is one of the largest responsibilities you have as a pet owner. When choosing the right type of food for your dog, you are likely to encounter a lot of conflicting information about which type of diet is “best” for your pet. Feeding dogs on a...
  10. What if my dog doesn't want raw meat?

    Raw Feeding
    I guess I should post in introductions first, but this section is what motivated me to join, so I thought I would just get to it. I am absolutely convinced that raw food would be the healthiest food for my dog. I've stopped buying commercial food for the most part, and make homemade dog food...
