LOL! I guess if i ever decide to try raw again I'll have to SLOWLY work my way up to the grinder
in the ideal world... we wouldn't have to shove food down dakotah's throat every day... and we wouldn't need to grind anything at all i have such a weird dog!

home ground raw

Okay, those pictures just convinced me I would rather not feed raw. I will eat meat but have never been fond of preparing the raw meat.

Honestly, it's not that bad preparing raw meat .. and just keep in mind how healthy it is for your dogs and how much they'll love it! It's worth it a million times over! Usually for most dogs I don't think you would have to grind it ... they eat it whole!

Mine had rabbit for the first time last night! (Whole that is) They weren't sure at first but after a few licks they crunched it up!

i've never seen a rabbit under $17 for a small one (skinned, head removed)... i'd be afraid to buy one and have the dogs turn their nose at it i'm glad you can feed that! so the kids are doing well on a variety of proteins now?

Okay ... I'll admit it ... that rabbit wasn't cheap! LOL But I thought they needed a special treat. I honestly didn't even look at the exact price but what I bought was just over a pound and it was about $6.00! LOL So they split it for dinner Everyone needs a special meal sometimes!

They are doing awesome with all kinds of protein .. minus the really boney part of an ox tail!

They ate pork breast and chicken giblets this morning .... yumm yummm

lol..omg raw meat..ohnoes!

hehe, you guys crack me up. Its not bad at all. The only thing I find bothers me a bit is the smell of tripe. But as long as I don't stick my nose right in it and take a big whiff I'm fine. As for the bacteria thing , how is this any different then preparing chicken or burgers for yourself? You use common sense, wash your hands, wash your counters, wash whatever and your good to go.

Tell me something ladies, how many times to you take our purse and lay it on the counter? Think where your purse has been. Public washroom floor? Restaurant floor? floor of your car, Etc. And you come home and lay it on your kitchen table or counter while your looking for something. You'd be amazed at the bacteria thats on your purse.

As long as you use common sense and clean up after yourself, you should have no worries!
