Another late post..... I have found that the complete mix can stack the weight on for some reason, so have actually decreased the amount I serve each feed. My dogs get it 4 times per week, but I also add supplements as well as the raw bones and raw fish etc. You can DEFINITELY mince up your own veggies (add water) and make your own, I just find that buying CM is easier for me (ie, less time consuming). I did look at the BARF patties, but for two young Dobes, it was gonna break the bank.
I've also heard that dessicated seaweed is a great dietary addition, though have not yet tried it.
i feed my dogs with raw meat bones too , i think it's good for dogs ,and i don't feed them with dry dog food
I've been suggested this as well. I received an email today from an online stockists promoting a new 'sensative skin' variety. I am thinking this might be worth trying as one of our Amstaffs has some skin issues at the moment and anything that can help.
I was advised to use half the suggest amount on the packet as our two get a small portion of holistic select anchovy at night.
They also get a range of roo mince, chicken mince, chicken carcasses, chicken necks, chicken leg bones, whole chicken pieces (our local IGA sells assorted chicken pieces for $2.99/kg, they love them but they are a treat once a week), roo tail, chicken liver and sardines through out the week, with an egg thrown in one meal a week as well.
Treats are roo jerky, dehydrated liver etc, all natural ones no additives etc, they don't get the 'baked bickies' and the like.
I have two samples of the 'complete mix' so I will try that first to see if they will actually eat it, if they do, then I'll get some of the other stuff.
