Life is like a box of chocolate covered
breeding dog so when it was time to send her to her other owner for show training etc I had to switch her back to kibble then when she came home would switch her back it was a real PAIN then when she was bred I had to feed her kibble with cooked chicken so when she was spayed I said I would go back to feeding raw but haven't made the change back as of yet.
Reading this thread makes me realize I should switch back!! But even if I do I will still use the prepared raw patties mixed with The Honest Kitchen Dehydrated Raw ... just because I can't help but fear I would do things wrong
I suffer from "M.B.S." (Multiple Bulldog Syndrome)
because one bulldog is NEVER enough!!
I only have two bulldogs, but I just grab some chicken thighs (2 for each dog), rip off the skin and excess fat, plop it in their bowls, then wash my hands with warm soapy water. If I want to get fancy, I will sear the outsides over high heat for a minute or two, sprinkle with cumin or turmeric or ground red chilies - the ladies love curry! Pork or beef is cut into large chunks so they still get chewing pleasure. Once or twice a week they get beef liver or chicken hearts or something like that (I usually cook those a little because the ladies prefer it cooked). I really don't go crazy. If I don't have enough meat, I make them filler of bulgur, brown rice, or some other grain and vegetables. I give them whatever fruit or veggie we snack on during the day. If they look hungry when I get home from work, I give them each a bowl of kibble as a snack. I also keep on hand cheapo canned dog food for when I don't feel up to feeding them for whatever reason. I think of it as fast food or junk food. I've never made a big deal over their food and neither one gulps it down, they chew everything.
