    It's Brian. I just posted it above the US quote. Of course it's cheaper to buy your own protein and add it to a base mix, but I'll paste Canadian info about buying complete dehydrated raw dog food again: If you want to go for a complete dehydrated raw go with Grand Cru if grains are ok for your dog. If not, go with Spot Farms since its 3.30 per day for a 50 pound dog. The other two main dehydrated raw brands in Canada are more expensive-Amore dehydrated raw is about 5.00 per day and NRG is about 5.50 per day for a 50 pound dog. Compare this to Honest Kitchen Marvel at 7.09 per day for a 50 pound dog in Canada.

    WRT tear stains, Wes suggested earlier in thread Ocubrite, but I'm not sure it's great idea since you are giving your dog tylosin which is an antibiotic. In another thread I suggested cleaning with boric acid eye wash, brand name Collyrium, or making your own:

    Add one tablespoon Boracic Acid to a cup of boiling water, mix well. Place several cotton swabs into a plastic container. Pour the cooled solution over the swabs and seal the container. Use one swab daily to clean away tear and face staining. Make up a new mix at least once weekly.

    An easier answer would be what we don't use as we use just about anything at one time or another ranging from garbanzo beans to Emu and Kangaroo. Howerver, we are big supporters of the local FFA chapters in our area and we usually buy a hog, rabbits, half a steer and dozens of chickens every year which save a lots on our costs as we do not pay anywhere near store prices on any of it.

    Any time. The added bonus of buying from the FFA is that you know the animals were raised under the guidance of an adult and that they were well cared for otherwise they wouldn't be at the show to begin with.

    I just bought a bag of Canisource Grand Cru beef ( contains grains - foods with grains are usually cheaper than grain free ) and it works out to $2.62 /day for a 50 pound dog. I emailed Canisource and they said they would have grain free meat formulas by the end of the summer. Right now they have a grain free fish formula but I'm trying to avoid fish because of contaminants. I tried buying a bag of Spot Farms at the local Pet Valu and they just had the one made with grain. Spot Farms dog food isn't popular here, although their treats are.

    I'm in US and we don't have Grand Cru but another good one (I think) is the Sojo's... You can even buy it called Naked that Sojos makes for a place called 'the Naked Dog' .... I've used it and he likes that too but not too much the one with the meat in it...I'd sure like to give Hank more beef but he gets gassy on it.. Mabie just needs to get more into his system and it'll ease off?

    Everything is so much cheaper in the US !!! That's why I used to buy stuff from Amazon.com and have it shipped to a mailbox store in Buffalo, ( americanmailbox.net ) and pay them 5.00/item to store it for me till I picked it up. Haven't done that for a long time. Now I try to buy Canadian if I can, eg. the Grand Cru dog food, or make my own products such as the ear drops ( 5 drops oil of cloves , 5 drops tea tree oil in 2 oz witch hazel; or 50% organic apple cider vinegar and 50% witch hazel ), malacetic wipes ( 2% boric acid and 2% acetic acid solution poured on some paper towels ). And we have other members making that complicated essential oil mixture !

    Quite a few of the dehydrated raw dog foods say they can be served dry if desired eg. in US ,Addiction raw dehydrated dog food. In Canada the Grand Cru, Smack and Amore can be served dry. Why don't you just bring a dry dehydrated dog food along on a trip and water separately, since you can feed it dry ?

    I did get the Sojos complete w turkey and also the Marvel HK which is with turkey and can just soak wherever we stop for the night... He just isn't fond of those and poop not quite as good, but am rotating it anyway to keep in his system... I wanted to do the Spruce but that's just ridiculous UNLESS he did great on it and his poop wasn't disturbed... Life is easy at home.. If hes gotta go, I walk to the door and let him out.. In a 'room/motel' I have to hook him up, and walk the halls to get him to the rr.. Just hoping to find something that keeps his turds as good as they are on the kindly
