Biologically Appropriate Raw Diet for Dogs

"But I Have A Small Dog"

June 9, 2013
If I had a nickel for every time I heard this I'd be a millionaire!  A dog is a dog. They have the same dental set up and same digestive systems as big dogs- just smaller. Now, that being said, I would personally feed different sized bones for a small dog compared to a large dog simply for practical reasons. For example, my German Shepherds eat all forms of bones ranging from chicken necks to turkey backs and everything in between. If you have a small dog I'd stick with the smaller bones for the mere fact that feeding will be an acceptable amount of time. Our dogs are of the same species and need the same nutrients. I have found that chicken necks are PERFECT for small breeds and puppies. They are small enough for extremely easy feedings and very easy to measure out and store as well. I have found my local poultry butcher sells me chicken necks in bulk for $.59/ lb. As raw feeding becomes more understood,accepted and promoted by many animal healthcare professionals, and more popular most butchers are aware there is a market for these supplies. Trust me, your "little dogs" will thank you!!

Twenty years ago I would not have believed I'd be blogging about poop on a Friday night! Oh well, it's a legitimate concern and I might as well get it over with.

There is good news, tho, for those of you contemplating switching to a raw diet.

Frequency- Plain and simple. A raw fed dog is getting more nutrients they require so they have FAR ...

June 7, 2013
While there are countless benefits of feeding our dogs a raw diet, some of the most noticeable are those that 'meet the eye(or nose)'. So many people approach me when I am out with my dogs simply to say,"I have never seen such a beautiful dog!". Of course, we are all a bit biased when it comes to our dogs but the folks who approach me are genuinely shocked at the appearance of my dogs. Much to their surprise I inform them they require very little maintenance compared to others' dogs. The eye ...

Hey everyone- Want to let you know why I want to get this site going and why my services are valuable. I got my first German Shepherd Dog,  Mugsy, a couple weeks after my father passed away. I was 15 years old and he saved me from crippling depression.  We rescued him from a local shelter where a breeder surrendered him at 8 weeks old. By the time he turned 3 he  started having mild focal seizures. His diagnosis was Idiopathic Epilepsy. His seizures were few and far between until he ...
