Thread: Floyd's Raw Diet...

  1. #1

    Default Floyd's Raw Diet...


    I feed Floyd a variety of different meals, all made by using fresh raw meats & vegies that i make up in 300grm lots & bag & freeze them, i defrost before i feed to Floyd..

    Floyd's weight varies at times 16.5-16.8 kilos & he is 16" tall at the withers

    I feed Floyd the following meals & feed raw in the morning & alternate different meals daily & i add 2 fish oil capulets to every meal morns & nights. Fish oils are fantastic in keeping coat very shiny, fur growth, skin moisturized & is full of omega – great for brain, joint, bone & cartilage health.

    Menu 1: 50% raw chicken mince, 20% spinach, 20% raw white beef tripe 10% mixed raw pureed vegies, 10% tomato puree & fresh parsley..

    Menu 2: 60% raw kangaroo mince, 20% spinach,10% mixed raw pureed vegies, 10% tomato puree & fresh parsley..

    Menu 3: 30% raw lamb mince, 30% raw beef mince 20% spinach,10% mixed raw pureed vegies, 10% tomato puree & fresh parsley..

    Floyds evening meals are light weight, either 1 @ 150grm can of sardines in olive oil or, 1 small tub of plain or fruit yoghurt..
    Floyds snack foods are either, fresh chicken necks (fed frozen in summer only) carrot sticks, apple slices, cheese, fruit puree ice blocks & he’s favourite fruit mango
    1 raw lamb neck or lamb shank given 1 x a week as the bones are more softer than beef knuckle bones & is less likely to damage teeth or splinter the intestines or cause bowel obstruction or constipation etc.

    The benefits of feeding RAW diet is that there are no artificial ingredients, colours , filler’s or grain by- products in it as there are in all commercial dogs foods, whether it be kibble or canned or the more expensive over priced.
    Artificial ingredients can cause skin allergies, hot spots on body, rise in internal & external body temperatures, over active behavior, intestine / tummy upsets- diarrhoea etc.

    Pls note that excess of proteins can cause kidney, liver damage or death in puppies, hot spots on body, rise in internal & external body temperatures in puppies as well as mature dogs, most commercial dog food foods contain excess amounts of proteins.

    Tomatoes can be bad for dogs. There are better and safer foods if you are looking for antioxidants.

    tomatoes can be fatal to dogs Tomatoes (plant and fruit) contain tomatine, an alkaloid related to solanine. As the fruit ripens, the tomatine is metabolized. Therefore, ripe tomatoes are less likely to be problematic for animals. Clinical signs of poisoning include lethargy, drooling, difficulty breathing, colic, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation, widely-dilated pupils, paralysis, cardiac effects, central nervous system signs (e.g., ataxia, muscle weakness, tremors, seizures), resulting from cholinesterase inhibition, coma and death. (This information comes from veterinarians, and the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center.) (All parts of the plant except the tomato itself are poisonous to humans, although some people are sensitive to the ripe fruit also.)

    Tomatoes also contain atropine, which can cause dilated pupils, tremors, and heart arrhythmias. The highest concentration of atropine is found in the leaves and stems of tomato plants, with less in unripe (green) tomatoes, and even less in ripe (red) tomatoes.

    You need to always keep a balanced view on feeding...there are enough raw/barf/prey feeder natzis as it is without more joining the throng.

    In the end, the best food for YOUR dog is the food that YOUR dog does best on. [/QUOTE]

    I do agree with what your saying about "us" all having a balanced view on feeding in regards to public "forums" etc & i don't leave comments or reply to commercial dog food topics on forums, but if someone in person asked me my thoughts & opinions about commercial dog foods-then i sure wouldn't hold back, i would tell them straight forward what i think.

    Not all us raw/ barf fans are natzis either &, i find that an insult to be classed as a natzis...... my post is about Floyd's diet & what works best for him & was not posted to push onto others or intended as an insult to the non raw/ barf fans.

    I agree with you both, WAY to many barf/prey model/raw feeder natzis out there (not here thank goodness!) Lets not go there!

    I think Leo would flip if he ate Floyds diet every day though, he isnt a big fan of mince AT ALL, actually gave him some beef mince last night with 1/4 of a lamb rib rack, he ate his ribs and then kept going back to the bowl and looking at the mince, then at me, as if to say, WHERES THE FOOD!? LOL

    Leo's usual diet is 1 cup kibble in the mornings & a dried beef whizzer given right before I leave. Nights we have usually have either 2 lamb hearts/brisket bone OR 3 lambs tounges/brisket bone OR Meaty Chicken carcass/necks with chicken breast off cuts. Sometimes we just do a whole lambs rib rack or whole lambs neck but its a bit messy and better off in summer when he can eat them outside. Then he gets carrot/capsicum/frozen peas, goodos (Yup, goodos! i know! Such crap, but he loves them!) cheese or dried roo sausage in his kong or treat ball. And biscuit bones for the days he goes to work with my OH as a lunch treat. (Yup, I send my OH to work with a packed lunch for the dog! - "Here's your lunch hunny, & here's the dogs")

    I have tried Leo (After being pushed and totally b rated on raw feeding forums, asking me why i was poisoning my dog still feeding partly commerical foods!) on both Barf and prey model diets, both 100% raw foods only and it just doesnt go down well with him, he got a really upset tummy/stools, really stinky wind and just had no energy!

    You just got to find what works for your dog, each is different just like us people

    Elise...i didnt even know about such raw feeding forums existed & how rude of them to give you a hard time etc not even going to bother joining such sites as i couldn't take to being harassed etc, bad enough that some barf/raw fanciers at DOL forum gave me a hard time over Floyd's diet, but i don't really care what others think of me as a dog owner or what i choose to feed my dogs, i know what works for my dogs & their healthy, happy & loved & that's the most important thing.
