Question Another Raw Question

I was browsing the hare-today.com website because i need to buy some kidney. But on the website they had different kinds of ground meat with bone and organs in them, they had things like

ground beef/organs/tripe and bone
ground duck/bone/organs
ground mutton/bone/organs
ground llama/bone/organs
ground goat/bone/tripe and organs

I was wondering if I could feed just a variety of those ground meat organs and bones, instead of cutting up meat everyday.

I was thinking I could make little patties out of them and freeze them. I was thinking it would be just like pre-made raw.

Or do you think that feeding them meat the has bone and organ in it everyday would be to much organ and bone

I think it is better to feed whole meats and meaty bones because the chewing is good for the teeth and the neck and head muscles of the dog. Also if you read on the hare today website it will tell you that ground meats have more surface for bactiria to form. I'm not sure why they have that in the and still offer the ground meat.

I have tried the ground sheep (mutton) and the ground rabbit and both went over great here. I just use it in my rotation. I partially thawed it out and then sliced into patties that went back into the freezer. Then just take it out and feed, very easy and convenient, like the pre-mades you buy. I believe these are whole animal carcasses, minus the stomach/intestines, so it is meat/bone/organ in about the right ratio since it is an entire animal that is ground up.

I agree with Chili that whole meats and meaty bones are great for teeth, while with ground - some dogs just suck it down. But I do think they have their place when used in rotation with whole meats and bony pieces.

Some dogs are resistant to eating organs. These grinds are a good way to get organs into them with less stress than 'forcing' them to eat their organs. They are easy and convenient for travel as well. Hare Today has a great variety as well and its fun to try novel meats that may be hard to find such as rabbit, llama, goose, etc.

Oh, and if you have a chance to order from them - Brody says to be SURE and get some ground green tripe. He says it is DELICIOUS.

Thanks Brodysmom! I think im am gonna order me some different ground varieties from there. Then I will through in chicken necks or other raw meaty bone 2 times week so they can get some chewing. I probably shouldnt let them eat too much of the bone from the raw meaty bone since they will be getting bone everyday in their ground meals.

Brodysmom, how many ounces do you feed broady a day? I think my 8mo is about his size. Mine is around 6 pounds, how much does Brody weigh?

Brody is 4 years old and weighs a little over 5 pounds. He eats about 4 ounces a day. On some days he might eat more, and then he gets less the next day. He usually self regulates so I don't worry too much about exactly how many ounces he eats.
