    I couldn't believe it

    Most people don't eat raw chicken either


    Lol. I do, but please don't bolt TKay. My dietary likes for myself are a wee bit strange, I'm well aware of that.

    I think the point is good food handling skills in the end. The butcher cant afford to give meat with salmonella so all of the meat is treated the same. The eggs are free range but they obviously have a good supplier

    I am definitely going to try this at lunch time. I'm afraid my descriptions aren't quite able to create a mental image LOL.

    Puppies/dogs who eat, don't chew then vomit will often then eat it back up again and have no problem the 2nd time. Lol. I know that may be disgusting to us, but better back in their tummies than the fact they haven't eaten. Not a good habit though, so when I start going to bigger pieces of meat I will hand feed, and ensure they have to learn how to chew it from my hand. I have always found excellent success with this, hence why I will always do it.
    Yup he does this, I won't discourage him from eating it back up from now on, I'll just clear hubby out for a bit... He's a sympathetic thrower-upper to put it as nicely as possible. He starts retching when Batty does

    That makes sense. Being such a large breed growing slowly would mean less damage to them.

    I'm honestly even considering getting bigger pieces for Batty to make him chew. He chews the larger chunks of chicken and chews his bones properly, he just doesn't chew the kibble. Heck I may even get him off it entirely and order the Barf patties or something. I honestly don't know!

    Thank you both for answering my questions!

    If you have bathroom scales, DA, weigh yourself then get on with the dog, to get her weight. Gawd, at the vet's yesterday Bandit was 11.4. Jodi is bigger than him too.

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

    Oh Angela, my husband is the same. I find it hilarious. If the pup retches, hubby retches. If the kids vomit, hubby vomits. It's usually kids doing in in one toilet, while hubby starts going in the other! I know I shouldn't laugh, but I can't help myself...

    I don't have scales Di. Well, technically I do, but they have some funny cell battery I've got to replace. It died years ago and I've never gotten around to locating the correct replacement battery.

    Now, potato bags - 10 kilo bags. If I lifted 2 of those, I reckon she is maybe somewhere around there?

    Question for Occy, please...

    Down here, because we have no hydatid tapeworm (hence the requirments for dogs enetering Tassie) all dog owners are required for biosecuirty legislation reasons to cook any offal before feeding it. Sheep offal is preferred to be frozen for a length of time prior to defrosting and eating etc.

    Just wondering why you cook the livers but not the heart where you are in melbourne?
    Can you explain that to me so I understand, please?
