Had to chime in with my experience. I used to work at a vet clinic/kennel, and we absolutely fed whatever the owner wanted us to feed. If they left a diet with us, the animal got it. Some of the...

What I've heard is that kibble contains less digestible ingredients, like fiber, that will slow down the dog's metabolism. The main reason dogs aren't as susceptible to salmonella poisoning is the...

My mom just made a turkey too! She's got a miniature poodle, and he got all the giblets, and she uses a meat cleaver to break the neck down into manageable pieces. Wings are good, too.

I can get a hold of rabbit locally, which I've considered adding into his diet. Problem is it's expensive, and he's not my dog. I've already invested quite a bit of money in this, and I'm a poor...

Yeah, sorry. I should have been more clear, actually. And when I say "neck bones" I mean vertebrae with a good amount of meat still on it. It isn't clean bone by any means.

Perhaps we can add in a...

A few questions.

Okay, so after months of effort, I've finally managed to get my mom's dog, Baxter, on something resembling a healthy, raw diet. Here's what we've got on the menu so far:

That's kind of what I was getting at, too. Tongue, while considered an organ, seems more meaty to me, like actual muscle. And I have heard that brains are mostly fat.

Tongue is considered an organ, technically, but nutritionally I'm not sure how it compares to muscle vs. true organs.

Brains, I think, aren't very nutritionally complete. Sort of fatty, if I...

You might want to work on your tone, then. Because you came off incredibly judgmental and condescending, especially considering you hadn't read through my post and made a lot of assumptions.
