    What happens here is ppl tend to start then feeding them extra supplements which inadvertently then causes them to have TOO MUCH calcium. That is NOT a good result to see!
    I imagine too much calcium could = kidney stones????? (it's a question) lol

Others will be able to help you there with their opinions. I do know that green leafy vegetables, and particularly broccoli, is alleged to be the most nutritious.

    Natural yoghurt is just that, not flavoured, no additional addtives etc, very natural. Hey, GSD's makes her own if you're interested in asking her for her natural recipe?

    Chicken, pork, beef, lamb (mutton also) are all great meats. As is fish. Please DO NOT buy your pet meat from those pathetic pet meat suppliers. If you wish, I will elaborate on the quality of that, but if not, I'll leave it at that. My advice is to buy good quality meat from the supermarket or butcher, wherever you usually go. Anyway, the better the quality the less you have to feed in the long run.

    Feeding a raw diet to your dog should actually turn out to be far less expensive than commercial dry food too.

    Heart is great, as are livers and other offal, but not continuously. Offal is very rich, and should only make up a small portion of your dog's overall diet. In other words, don't feed it offal every day as a main meal, it's just too much.
    OK DA don't want to reinvent the wheel and you seem to have done your research. WHat about minced chicken carcess??

    Um...I'm embarrassed because I've got no idea what reinventing the wheel is/means?

    And chicken carcasses, minced? What do you mean what about it? I'm lost?

    Hi Girls...

    My Oh likes tripe too but not me no thanks im not desperate to eat offal, the muscle meat is just fine enough for me to eat. I do cook tripe tho "Italian style" for my OH.

    I do feed Floyd HC grade tripe, but prefer to feed him unbleached natural greenish/ purple tripe if its avail ( what a sight for sore eyes green/purple tripe is )

    In regards to human grade tripe, not sure if you know that there are 2 types, sheep & beef tripe.

    Beef tripe when bleached is white & tight small honeycomb dimples & tastes much better than sheep's tripe, doesn't stink when cooking.

    Sheep tripe is a creamy yellowish colour & has large honeycomb dimples & stinks so bad when cooking it

    Be wary when buying tripe yeah as some butchers & supermarkets will pass off cheap sheep tripe as the more expensive beef tripe.

    LOL, DA what I mean is that you have obviously done your homework on the subject, so I won't go and do the same thing (re-invent the wheel)!! given I trust your opinion.

    Minced chicken carcess is something I buy from Leonards Chicken Stores. Basically whole carcass minced for pets, bones and all. It is supposed to be chemical free.

    My kids have always complained that I speak in riddles lol, this just proves the point!

    OK, as much as I would HATE to cook this sheit, I would gladly do so for the gang. My question is though, given pei aren't supposed to eat beef (too high in protien) should I look at buying sheep sheit errr I mean tripe???

    Hi Amanda... umm you dont have to cook the tripe, just feed it RAW, most doggies luv it & watch the doggies scoff it down

    As for protein contents of either sheep or beef tripe yeah, its low.

    umm here is a link to a post i made earlier today & it states the nutrient content of meats, please excuse me for not re-typing the meat nutrient post as my eyes are hanging out & im ready for bed

    Thanks Deb, I read that post earlier but must admit that I skimmed over the beef as it just isn't an option for pei.

    And just to clarify....I can feed beef tripe without fear of protien issues? As if this is higher in nutritian for the dog, then obviously this is what I will look for
