    Default Roo in the Morning is a No Go

    I finally found some roo meat at the shops so I bought some. Found out that it makes Taya do stinky farts

    So I thought I'd give it to her in the morning so it's out of her system by night time when she's lying right next to us in the lounge room.

    Normally she just gets biscuits in the morning. Twice (one day apart) I gave her the roo & some biscuits. Well, it just makes her vomit a little bit... how bizarre. So i guess we have to put up with a stinky dog at night time now

    Never had a dog that is partial to roo meat other than what they have caught themselves and managed to push back thru the fence.

    Our childhood cat however loved the stuff, it was just about all he would eat and he lived to the ripe old age of 17 before being pts.

    Kaos wont touch roo meat, she shudders when she smells it and runs away, Atlas will eat it if he has too... but the cats! They almost take my hand off to get the meat out of it!!!

    I am with the dogs, I have tired it a few times, and ick!!

    OMG i love roo meat

    The taste,so rich,just mouth watering. Last time i had decent roo meat was 20yrs ago thou when mates and myself went out shooting on a property where they had the owners permission,also shooting mate had a property we would go on. Mind you,the guys would always make me hold the guns when we got bogged,but never let me shoot one.

    Shoot me down for going shooting if you wish,but i can tell you right now that on a farm,a home slaughtered lamb tastes much better than store brought,and the same can be said of the kangaroo.

    I have no problem with hunting, as long as the animals are killed fast

    My dogs love it and so does the cat if it's fresh - IMO shooting roos is less cruel than the way most livestock is treated not only at the end of its life but throughout. Ever seen a crowded truck full of roos being transported cross country?

    Getting off my soapbox now

    My dogs get a spoonful or two with their night meal... I've noticed some foul stink from the Min Pin.


    like a rolling thunder chasing the wind...

    Both my SBT's love raw roo meat, they eat it at least 6 x a week

    But the roo farts aren't the sweetest..

    Happy to say I haven't had the joy of a roo fart yet.....did go through an ill-advised dry Pal period though which was, well....

    It's very high in protien and very low in fats which doesn't agree with many dogs.

    Meegsndogs I gather you've never been on a roo shoot if you think most of it's humane. And the transport and storage of it is often cheap and woeful. Undressed, undersized carcasses in poorly refrigerated and sealed vehicles is common, as is flystrike. I wouldn't feed it to my dogs.
