I have been sorta xperimenting with something and it really does seem to help...I was just going to do it for a month but I like it so I will be going into my 3rd month this week...
but.......I grind my chicken[legquarters]. and for everyquarter I put in the grinder I try to put 10%[not xzact but close] the wght in organs also. it will mix in.. and what I do then is put it in freezer bags 8ozs. at a bag,,, flatten it out a bit to it's about 1/4'' thick and freeze it...so I have my organs and chicken at the same time..and it saves a ton of space in the freezer!
here comes the part that some will really disagree with...
when I give it to the dogs I weigh it out to the dogs wght. mine have gotten to the wgt that 8 ozs. is almost perfect, and then I add dry 24/20 dog food...[not kibble] I hate that term lol.i feel the same way most do about dry [some good and some bad] but I do feel that the dry does have some things that the dogs need.. and I also add a spoon of lard with it just to make sure the fat is good enuf... add a muti vitamin and 3 days a week a raw egg..
its sounds time consuming and I reckon it is but my dogs are worth it..
I can grind 40lbs. and pack it in about 3 hours...
when they crap its only twice in 24 hrs., and they are healthy and active!
even the old yard dog with the pawn shop hip is acting better!
main thing this time of year I want to keepa bit more fat on them...have to thank fh for the lard deal, I seemed to have forgot that's what we did wayback when...lol
some days when its real cold, i'll add a can of warm chicken soup[surfer] and no raw.
they love that...
now some will say OMG you shouldn't mix it like that..well to that I say...bull!
these dogs are the picture of health and that comes from the vet! not me..
and at 93.00$ for each to have a blood work done last month,i'm not arguing!
and these are apbt
's!!! not blues or mixed with no allergies or whatever...
[well all but 1, she's ukc stuff but she's my buddy]
if you buy the stuff in bulk and have the time it's not that bad money wise!
my bad for running on too much,but just figgered I'd give you another idea to ponder.
and you'll probably git 50 more that are just as good or better...
this is just my way and if it aint broke I aint fixing it!!!
