Okay, I don’t know for sure that the chicken parts were bad, but another girl who feeds raw and just moved into town and was feeding her dogs chicken parts from the same place I was feeding from… she said her dogs also got runny on them! Ugh!
So during those months I was struggling with the bone/meat ratio thinking I had it wrong, it was probably the chicken parts! Since I’ve had them on Oma’s Pride Chicken Necks, they have been fine. These are more than twice as expensive, but they are hormone and antibiotic free, and the dogs love them.
Guess I won’t be buying from that bad source anymore. I haven’t heard if anyone else has had that problem. What a pain. I’m going to readjust my bone/meat ratio, give them more meat, see how that works now that I know what the heck was going on!
Also, I went to Walmart and bought some beef heart to use as treats. Chase likes cheese okay, but I think when we are doing obedience he needs something better. Obedience is so hard for him. He really doesn’t like just sitting there and being still. He’d rather run full-speed-amok all over the place. All five dogs were crazy about the heart last night, I’ll try it out tonight and Thursday on Chase, see how he does!
