    Yeh, I've read a few people who microwave them and crush them up really finely. I have just been giving them once a week to Jenna raw, just crushed up a bit in my fingers. Is there something wrong with this.

    Loving this discussion BTW, I really want to get Jenna off the kibble. At the moment she is having raw and kibble as I am not confident in my ability to give her all the things she needs from a raw diet but would love to learn more and take that step.

    I have a small bag of kibble. I'll only use it if Mish is the only one who's eaten breakfast & I can't be bothered grinding up vegies just for her to go with her raw meat for dinner or if Spirit & Tara have eaten everything & are bugging me for something else to eat & I won't give them any more treats that I'm working on.

    No, I have always fed them raw TKay. Hence my asking others why they microwave them.

    I think that is the hard part TKay.
    So many "experts" in the field of canine nutrition out there, yet they all differ from each other in their opinions too! Makes it very hard for ppl who are considering changing from a processed diet to a raw natural diet. Sigh.

    But I guess it's like everything else we do with our animals, what dry food ppl feed them, what they teach them, how they train them...

    I think in the end it's about doing as much research from reputable sources as possible, then making your own decision re what is right or wrong.

    I was advised to microwave (for the birds, sterilises them) I just find it makes them really brittle and easy to crush. Bacteria on raw ones I would think would not worry dogs. I still microwaved for crushability.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    A perfect example of the different opinions is:

    One vet in town many years ago in Qld advocated nothing but Hill's Science Diet for all the animals coming through his surgery. Had nothing good to say about any other diet in the world other than Hill's.

    On the other side of town the vet and staff advocated raw food diet only. Told ppl not to feed processed **** and dry kibble etc. They stocked it, but would try and talk to ppl about not feeding it. Lol.

    Blah ...

    I also think the "problem" is when people take some info from one site...some other info from another site and combine these and get the balance wrong...because it just sounds and looks right.
