I found a source of cheap meat. 50 cents a pound for chicken! I'm going raw! But I'm finishing off their current bag of kibbles first.
I got Bullied and loving it!

i must admit to leaving the skin on her chicken ,she doesnt know how to use her paws when eating lol so does regurgitate but always licks it up YUMMMYYYY not!!it doesnt bother me watching her do that but my old man is disgusted lol,on friday at work my boss had left 2 large chickens and 51b of beef steak out of the fridge and was going to throw it away !!!so i brought it home for annie ,thats a few free meals lol,i think she thought i was going to feed my family with it!!!,so have put it in the freezer for a couple of weeks to kill off any germs and i promise to give it all to annie lol,karen
hahahaaa....who knows what kind of thought went through her head
Some time back I asked two of the most knowledgeable experts on Bulldogs that I happen to know. One gave me Pepper. I was curious of a raw food diet for her. They help me quite a bit with anything about Bully's I need or want to know.Both have some 60 years combined in raising and breeding.
Both of them told me a raw food diet is very detrimental for good health for a Bully. They are even more susceptible to E-coli and other harmful bacteria than humans. When a Bully gets Food poisoning from them its the dehydration that kills them quick. A Bully gets to sick from bad food it is susceptible to what is basically a Stomach Flip.The stomach and gut basically knots up and it is fatal and not at all a pleasant sight to watch a Bully suffer with. Feeding a Bully raw chicken is taking a gamble, chicken can spoil after only being out 15 minutes.
Beef is only a bit safer but Bully's have a heck of a time digesting it.Both have told me that the only Safe Beef to give a Bully is to boil it and strain it , not even baked or fried beef is advisable. If you feed your Bully beef and you have issues with Gas then you know now one of the reasons. Boiled removes most all the fat from beef and at times I will feed pepper some boiled beef and rice as a special treat. But as shared with me Bullys and beef don't mix and that it was far better to have my bully on a raw, washed veggie diet along with a good non -wheat dry dog food then to consider a diet that included raw meat.
If that diet works for ya and your dogs thrive on it - thats awesome!
