    Yeah I feed my girl heaps of chicken necks and chicken frames..
    When I first started I supervised all the time until I knew
    she was ok to eat them on her own..

    With raw feeding I have only just gotten my girl
    to eat raw..
    I use to have to cook it for her every time..
    But since having the pups here it's a race
    to eat it for her incase her babies get it..
    So I put it out raw and down she eats it..Great
    for her and great for me as I don't have to cook the
    meat for her.....

    All my pups are feed on raw as I am totally against
    can food..
    My vet once told me, why do you think vets do not stock
    can food.. and he said no more...

    just be careful he does chew and swallow his food and doesn't inhale it instead.

    Frosty fails to properly chew bones, and ends up vomitting them or worse.

    And there was an episode of bondi vet (yes all fact and no fiction) where they pulled nearly a whole chicken carcass out of a greedy kelpie's lungs. That's not what we mean when we say our dog hoovers their food.

    I saw that episode which is why i'm too scared not to mince it finely lol.
    I'm also against canned food & he has a corn allergy so it's an even bigger no no

    Hi Tam, mine have both started on raw food from a month after i got them, ie. 12 weeks old. Pups need especially nutritious food. If you think about it, you will achieve that far easier with raw, and bones, than with commercial dog food.

    If that's he's chops i can see in your post, he's gorgeous!

    Just as long as you don't cook the mince it should be good. I think.

    My mum bought what she thought was minced chicken - and it had bones in it and that caused a blockage with her kelpie x. Expensive, and she was really angry with the butcher that sold it to her.
