We all know that SBT'S dont chew food that much, its more like just bite & swallow in big chunks lol.

    I do give Floyd frozen chicken necks as a snack in summer.
    God love those greedy SBT's...

    I give my 3 a frozen chicken carcass each at lunch time. They really have to chew on it & so it's like a tooth brush. Mish is nearly 12 & her teeth look pretty good for an old girl.

    I give Chloe lamb shanks but i get the butcher to cut off the knuckle bit that might lodge (she's got heaps of dogs so knew what i meant) and at the moment chloe is currently chowing down on her very first chicken frame..

    My next question was is frozen ok? but thats been answered... A little off topic but what about lamb shanks being frozen? I was a bit worried the bones might snap somehow?

    Im also with you about not giving a 100% hills diet, i know most of the nutrition, vit and minerals come from it, but i think it has its place like everything else.

    I give any malnourished young (2 - 12 months) rescues chemical free, minced chicken carcass mixed with their dry food. The carcass is great for fast growing bones that haven't been fed correctly. I also give this to the oldies who are feeling their age. I give chicken necks for teeth cleaning and Flax seed oil and grain for fibre and skin and coat. Also, pro biotic powder for Bella's smelly farts and the rescue's upset tummies. Then there is Glyde powder for those with obvious bone problems and Pet Ark Calm for calming purposes.

    Other times they have sardines or tuna, sometimes I make a chicken stock and add rice to cook, when it is cool I grate a sweet potato and a zuchinni into it.

    I will also often add yoghurt and cheese.

    Basically I agree with everyone else, variety is the way to go

    And I wonder why it takes me so long to get their meals ready (rolling my eyes right now lol). I think I may be embarassed at this point!

    ETA: For the really skinny ones, I make a mixture of "saturn balls".
    1kg of the fattiest mince I can find, a jar of peanut butter, a jar of cream, 12 eggs, 1/2 cup each of wheatgerm & oats. Mix it all together and feed throughout the day. Puts weight on quickly but can only feed this week about as it is obviously too fatty for ongoing feeding.

    OK, now I am even more embarressed and should really get myself a life!

    SPRV, between the dog's, cat's and bird's diets you sound the same as me. Hubby is lucky if he gets an egg on toast (not really....but sometimes, lol)

    That is a great fattening up recipe. May I pass it on if needed? Have bookmarked the thread.

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

    my husky is a couple of kilos under weight as well, major fussy eating is she, i will try your recipe Shar Pei. so you recommend only feeding it as treats throughout the day for about a week is that right?

    If Shar Pei's recipe doesn't work, I can send you some of the fat from my offal. A friend's dog had to "beef up" for a show in 10 days & my offal fat worked.

    It is supposed to be rolled into balls, but I can never get them that solid! So I make up into chinese containers and keep one in the fridge, 1 in the freezer. At dinner time I give a big heaped tablespoon in the dry food and mix through. One week on and one week off due to the high cholestrerol content. I have fattened up many a dog this way.

    On the off week and with the more boom bah dogs I substitute the fatty mix for plain minced chicken carcess. Same formula, a big heaped tablespoon mixed with biscuits.

    Good luck!
