Well, I only really cook the organ meat because he WILL NOT touch it raw!

Our last dog was a very picky eater, often leaving her meal and coming back later to pick at it. But now, Walter is the opposite. He's been on a raw diet from the start and he eats with intensity! He LOVES his raw chicken livers, duck necks, chicken backs, turkey hearts, beef hearts. We used to gag when preparing....now we're used to it. Still hard to butcher up the pork kidneys though.

I've never cooked any of Kyleigh's food, so I would be interested to read why people are cooking their dog's food? As my holistic vet said one time ... predatory animals are not versed in the use of fire ...

Picky eater? Have you simply not fed the dog that one time and just walked away? Put it down the next meal and watch them eat!!!! Dogs will eat ANYTHING, so I get a huge crack out of reading about picky eaters ... most dogs eat the same kibble their entire lives, and then when you switch to making their food all of a sudden we have "picky" eaters? No, the dog is saying it wants something better (i.e. like the t-bone steak sitting on the counter that it can smell) because it knows there is something "better / different" ... and then you give in! LOL Careful with that ... you'll be buying the most expensive pieces of meat for your dog, and you'll be living on hot dogs!

A really great dog treat is chicken livers and ground up oats puree together with blender and bake until cooked through. I use my coffee grinder to grind up my old-fashioned oatmeal and about 2 to 1 ratio livers to oat flour.

I rarely feed organ meat, it's really not that good for dogs. I do fed muscle meat, such as Chicken heart. I cut it in half, maybe 10 or so, boil for a short period (2-3 minutes) in a small amount of water, stick it in the freezer to cool. When cooler, about 10 minutes, I pour it over the kibble. Tony just loves that gravy. I also can get chicken wing tips for 59 cents a pound. I boil those (7-9) for about an hour. I then remove them from the juice with tonges (SP) stick them in the freezer on a plate until cold (12 minutes or so), I then remove what meat I can. Put the meat back in the juice. Chill all in the freezer until cooler, then pour over kibble. I don't allow the kibble to get soft, that's why I chill it. The butcher shop here is really awesome for having cheap stuff like that.

LOL, back then they didn't farm raise, 10 thousand chickens crammed into one building, with many dieing in those conditions before being slaughtered. I woud never fed raw chicken or raw eggs to my dog, ever. Now if I lived on a farm out in the country, that would be a different story.

It's these ones, the dead, decaying, diseased that are rendered for dog and cat food...the ones for slaughter are the ones that make to the grocery or butcher

Wow....that goes against EVERYTHING the Raw Feeders know and is published. I'd be interested to hear your source for this fact.
