    Like Deerhound, I also mix up the veges with the meat. I mix a combination of minces including minced chicken carcasses, and then using the food processor, I will process a mix of veges.

    Each week is different.

    This last weekend I mixed carrots, zucchini, brussel sprouts, peas, corn, cauliflower, pumpkin (bolied) and potato (boiled). I then freeze this in batches after mixing it in with the meat.

    On top of this, I also feed my dogs yoghurt (plain natural), raw eggs and sardines throughout the week.

    They are given large shank bones once a week, purely for teeth cleaning and the marrow. These are the only bones they have though, apart from the bones in the minced carcasses.

    Forgot about the eggs, Anne. I use them too. Shell as well with larger dogs.

    I keep the shells Anne and put them in the microwave until they become really brittle. Then I crush them and turn them into powder. Instant calcium powder.

    When I am nable to get the carcasses, I use this powder in their vege and meat mix to ensure they still get their calcium and phospherous.

    Anne, How often can you give the egg shell?

    Which Anne? *lol*

    I put in a teaspoon of the powder to every kilo of mince for the Pugs, when I am not feeding bones of any description for at least 2 weeks.
