On weekends I feed Mavis some raw locally sourced foods from local farms.
At "Cafe Mavis" she will have some lamb heart, lamb liver, kidney and tongue, all from the whole lamb I purchased in November from a local farmer.
Several other lamb buyers did not want the organ meats so I came home with about 20 lbs of grass fed lamb organs.
Mavis KNOWS when its Friday.
That's when I pull out the stuff to defrost and figure out her weekend menu.
There seems to be such an abundance of unwanted organ meats that I just may have to get another dog.
Don't tell Mavis.
I was fortunate to learn about feeding raw in the 90's from a well known and loved Golden Retriever breeder.
Feeding raw extended the lives of TWO of my foster dogs. My little Lily had been diagnosed with crones and was a 30 lb Rottweiler who could not keep weight on. After feeding raw for 3 weeks she gained 10 pounds and kept it on and continued to gain weight til she reached 55 lbs. I adopted her and continued to feed raw. Later I adopted a 10 year old Golden and the raw helped him vibrantly live to the ripe old age of 17 1/2.
Here is some info about feeding raw or you can browse The BARF (Bones and Appropriate Foods) diet. Lots of good books and websites on the Internet and many dog owners are feeding raw to keep their dogs healthy and living longer.
What are you feeding your dogs ?
