Oh that's an awesome link thanks

It looks like sticking with just meat is the way to go
I'd really just like to get them off the kibble.

Lauries website is great, but I couldn't get it to load yesterday

Interesting comment on the Ian billing hurst books being a little outdated, that's kinda what I felt when I was reading it. It was recommended by a friend so I decided to buy it for a paper reference - I like having books

To me it makes sense that they should have some vegetables. It just seems that most people don't bother with them.
My guys haven't had vegetables as a part of their diet ... ever. Winnie, who is in her teens, used to get them but none of my Cresteds have ever had veggies as a regular part of their diet.

They do get green tripe ever now and then and once I find a consistent source they will get it more often.

Dogs are carnivores. They need meat and bones. Some might like to eat veggies or berries or fruit but that doesn't mean they NEED them. Heck, Kaynya likes to eat the cat poop - doesn't mean she needs to!

LOL good point
My aunties dog used to love blackberries when we were kids, we'd be picking them and Sunny would have here nose right in there as well, picking them off the bush and eating them I'd never buy blackberries for the dogs tho LOL they are so expensive I don't even buy them for myself
Green tripe seems just about impossible to get here, places that sell meat for human consumptions are not allowed to have it. I know a few friends who butcher their own cattle and sheep so I may be able to get some of them.

I will be so jealous if you can get hold of green tripe! Amazing that it is illegal to sell here

Check out the rawfeeding group on Yahoo

rawfeeding : Raw Feeding for dogs and cats!

I believe the list is still owned by the same woman and she is in Australia. Once you become a member you can ask about getting tripe in your area. WARNING, this email list is very high volume.

Thank you Mooch! I used to feed 100% Raw but since we moved I can't source any decent prices so they are on half/half.

Thanks lhczth

Bianca mine are on half/half at the moment too, they seem to be doing well on it, I'm still trying to find places to buy meat in bulk.

No fruits and veggies??

I have to say that my vet actually recommended giving the dog almost anything from the fruit and vegetable aisle because she has a gluten allergy, and we give her a high protein food. She needs something to help balance out her diet. And, she said nothing about them not being digested by the dog, as they are omnivores. Vegetables and fruits, in moderation of course, should not be an issue to them, as long as they are not the solitary basis of their diet.
