Well, I didn't actually have a source, just info I picked up since I owned pet rats for many years... You can feed oranges to female rats, but not males. D-limonene is found in orange juice as well and in other natural food sources.

Here is a site that talks about this though:

Also, d-limonene is used as a food additive so I do not think it is as dangerous as all that? I mean, unless you are a male rat.
I read that as well... renal cancer,, in humans it actually is seen as a cancer preventative .... they sell candied orange peels... also the mass majority of bioflavanoids are in the skin... all that being said, after spending some time cleaning sour smelling diarrhea from Yoschi's crate and the $60.00 bed I threw away,, that was the last taste of orange peel he'll ever get.. lol

Galathiel I guess my question would be ... do dogs need ANY vegetables at all? Feeding raw don't you just give 80 percent meat, 10 percent organ (with at least 5 percent being liver) and 10 percent bone? I didn't think vegetables were actually necessary for a healthy diet for a dog.

I know sometimes they may be given as a treat (carrots for instance) or if your dog is on a 'diet' so they aren't as hungry .. but necessary?

Problem is the closer you are to the surface the more nutrients you have so a lot of nutrition is stripped.
Would adding carrot juice to his raw mix be a better idea?
