Doggie Breakfast Today - Page 1

Browned hamburger, with all the fat juices. Boiled eggs. Freshly ground flax seed. Kelp. The tiniest bit of dried powered ginger. Huge blueberries.

I forgot the nutritional yeast. I'll throw it in tonight's dinner.

Most mornings are similar. Meat can be raw. I can't feed the house Cur raw eggs or he will fart me out of the house.

I actually prefer to put the eggs, shell & all, into the blender. Then cook scrambled. That way the egg shell is more bio-available, & no shell pieces coming out in the poop as when fed as boiled.

Today oatmeal cooked in milk was added.

I am so tired of buying cows milk at the store, only to get it home & find out it is already bad.*grrr*   Dogs are going to be eating a whole lot oatmeal the next few days.

I bought cottage cheese too.  I bet it arrived on the same truck & is also bad.   Doggies going to be eating some cottage cheese if so.


So many here say they feed raw diets.  Do tell, what & how are you feeding?  I'm curious.


I feed a lot of raw as my lifestyle simply makes it available to me.  Though it is not a fine science for me.  We got it, we feed it.  Between the dogs, cats  & hens, very little is ever actually thrown away.  Then there is always the compost pile too.  :)

8lu3d09, are you in the US? I am a little surprised to see guinea pig on the list. Sounds a very South American thing to do. So does the pilchard. I don't think I've ever even meet an American in the US that knows what pilchard is.

No, I don't live in the US. I live in the UK.

TWC <---- would have a tough time feeding guinea pig . They're too cute. I know, I know they are raised for human consumption in South America. Been there, seen that, ate none. I have eaten coconut rat though. Mmm, tastes like chicken. No, it doesn't. But iguana does. Honestly, I am a tad surprised the UK is not up in arms over guinea pig as dog food . I bet they sure would be in the US.

Well I don't think Guinea Pig features in COMMERCIAL dog foods here ! The small pets owners of the UK would certainly object !
Dunno where 8lu3d09 gets his gingy carcasses from, unless he breeds them himself.

As Hundmutter wrote, they are not in commercial dog food.

I do not breed them, I purchase them from a place that sells raw for dogs, cats, ferrets, raptors and snakes.

Its mainly the snake and raptor owners that buy them.

Big snakes ! I'd normally just think of chicks, and rats & mice (and pinkies thereof) for snake (or falcon) food - but I guess if you own a boa or something ...
