Thanks again everyone! Great to visit around see everyone else's cute bullies too!
@ddnene - I've never done the patties and always make my own. Georgia is a 'gulper' by nature (always has been) and struggles at times with swallowing larger bones, so I usually grind any chicken that is fed to them (it's their primary protein source). However, they also get the other goodies with no grinding; their favorites being tripe, any beef in general, elk, venison and turkey. As I mentioned, I'm always happy to share any raw feeding successes or knowledge. I'll have to scope out the raw feeding threads and see if I can offer some input From a bulldog standpoint, I feel that raw is definitely a nice benefit. It's unfortunate, but we have a sensitive breed (even those that are well bred are still sensitive to a lot of things). Their coats are always really nice, never have to get a teeth cleaning, weight is easy to control and best of all - No farting!!
Side story - Georgia had to get an emergency spay this last weekend (she had Pyometra for those familiar with what that is). I was super bummed as she was looking to be a good candidate to give us some lovely Georgia pups; but the best for her health was to do the spay rather than treat the pyo. Anyhow, our vet's office gave her food the next morning. It was "sensitive stomach" kibble as we weren't able to take them her raw food the next morning, given that the vet's office is about an hour from our house (he's a bulldog specialist, owner and bully breeder - we lucked out!). So... Georgia eats a tiny bit of their kibble, and holy heavens, the wife was ready to get rid of her because her gas was soooooo bad!! I've never smelled gas that bad out of anything, and it was coming from my sweet little bully Sorry for the TMI, but had to share
