    I’m picking up beef hearts, beef liver and beef kidney from an Asian market. Is it safe to freeze it, defrost it when I’m ready to make everything and divide it into 1 lbs meals.

  5. Health Issues
    My 9.5 GSD has been on a raw diet for about 8.5 years. He was recently diagnosed with probable PF... not conclusive. I’ve been keeping his butt clean and putting hydrocortisone or aloe vera. With raw the poop is a lot harder and I think in his case causes more straining, so I reluctantly changed...

  10. B.A.R.F./Raw Feeding
    Hello everybody! So my babygirl Zuko officially turned 3 months old today on the 13th. When I initially got her from the breeders they did not mention that she was the runt or in any way “underweight” and since this is my first large breed dog I didn’t see anything wrong until I found forums on...
