Re: Our Dogs Menus
All of my dogs eat the same things. I just adjust amounts depending on their weight. All are active in the winter and VERY active in the spring/summer/fall. I don't weigh foods. Just give a bit more to a dog that needs it and less (Vala thinks I am starving her right now) to a dog that is getting chunky.
Vala, 2.5 years, GSD, 68# training in SchH. VERY easy dog to keep weight on. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/10_eek.gif[/img]
Brazen, 19 months, GSD, 59#, training in SchH
Nike, almost 7 years, GSD, 68#, spayed, retired though she trains helpers.
Alexis, almost 4, GSD, 79#, spayed, active pet.
I feed chicken backs, leg quarters, split fryers or whole chickens when on sale. Whole turkeys, necks, thighs, wings, backs. Pork riblets (these can be boney or very meaty depending on the part being sold), neck. Veal neck and knuckle bones. Very rarely lamb (too expensive), venison, duck and rabbit. MM consists of beef or pork, beef heart or lamb's heart. Offal is almost always beef liver. My guys don't care for poultry offal unless partially frozen though will usually eat the hearts. Also either free ranging farm eggs or I spend the money on the eggland's best. Canned sardines or mackerel when I can get them and canned oysters at times. They all also feast on field mice and other things they can catch in the summer when I mow the fields. And they do share veggies with me a few times per week and maybe some other table scraps. Veggies will be cooked. Vala also loves fruit. I feed MM and offal in separate meals instead of having RMB, MM and offal, supplements, etc all fed in every meal.
Wednesday morning they all had chicken backs (little meat, soft bone, some offal, fat).
Dinner was 4 eggs, 6000 mg of salmon oils, vit-E, 1/2 can each oysters (a bit more going to Brazen and Vala), and approximately 1/2 # of ground beef (less to Vala).
Thursday breakfast and dinner will be pork riblets (described above).
Tomorrow maybe turkey and another MM/offal meal.
I have fed this way for 8 years and raised two litter and several other pups. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/01_smile.gif[/img]
