well don't use the word supplement - use integral part of the diet --

yes - I have been feeding raw for almost 30 years and the mixture was created to supply the everything else beside the macro nutrients provided by the raw meaty bones . I don't need to add anything else -- but occassionally do such as the frozen blueberries that were intended for a smoothie but got forgotten and sat out too long on the counter -- dogs loved them.

Study after study whether Sperry or Parker or
.

Dogs will choose to eat young grass -- . They are not strict carnivores -

They like eat those things because they taste good and they are easy to 'catch'.

My dogs like to eat cat poop and bunny poop. It still doesn't mean they NEED those things.

If you feed a well balanced diet you don't need to add ANYTHING (for a healthy dog).

and it may eat the poop because it needs something -- such as digested proteins , digested greens -

tripe! The best intergral supplement there is!
My dogs will eat cookies from the litterbox if they had access. I don't know if they are lacking anything nutrition-"wise", wise is the key word?

Well I finally made a decision on how I'm going to feed Ollie based on everything I've been reading. It is not possible for me at this time to feed a 100% raw diet though I would LOVE to, maybe someday.

I've got Ollie back on Honest Kitchen along with raw meat, raw eggs and RMB's a few times a week... He had his first raw chicken neck today and LOVED it. It was pretty small but should I be grinding those up or cutting them into smaller pieces? He's also had a small raw marrow bone(not today) and no bad stomach reactions to any of it(thank the doggy gods!). I'm not sure if feed sentials would be neccessary because the HK already has vitamins and what not but I am going to do the fish oil as well even though his coat is already super shiny and soft.

But thank you everyone for your advice on both of my threads! Now I have to figure out where the heck to get tripe... Sounds delicious!
