I am sure many of you having had to listen to the "scare tactic" of your veterinarian, concerning raw food.
Your dog may not be getting enough vitamins and minerals.
It's not a balanced diet.
Not getting enough calcium.
E coli, and all the other creepy bugs are going to kill you and your dog.
Here , I am pasting a copy from the Dogs Naturally Magazine concerning the subject of getting enough vitamins and minerals in a raw diet.
One of the main reasons pet owners are reluctant to switch their dog to a raw diet is the fear their dog wouldn’t get enough vitamins and minerals. Many others feed plant and vegetable matter for an added vitamin and mineral punch. But if you’re one of those raw feeders who’s tired of mincing veggies – or you worry that carnivorous dogs shouldn’t be eating that many veggies – then here’s a guide to help you see the vitamin and mineral content in animal proteins. If you’re new to a raw diet and want to learn more about starting out, then you might want to read our Raw Feeding Primer.
Although it’s hard to improve on a fresh, natural diet of species appropriate foods, you may have a dog who you feel needs extra nutrition (perhaps extra vitamin C for immune function or iodine for thyroid function). Luckily, there are nutritional herbs you can use to give your dog an additional boost without needing to mulch up those veggies. Most importantly, these whole food sources of vitamins and minerals are a much healthier choice than their synthetic counterparts. And unlike synthetic vitamins and minerals, herbs provide essential nutrients complete with the cofactors they need to make a healthy change in your dog – just as nature intended!
(Boy) Black Fusion, 8 weeks old now, ever so tiny, sweet and observant of what you do. Very snugly, playful, a tad reserved, but not shy. Comes with a super soft, great hair coat!!
I love this little boy.
(Girl) black Velvet, now 8 weeks and is available. (reserved as of 11/2/14)
Velvet is a very promising girl , developing a very beautiful hair coat ,suitable for agility, any performance sport, or show . She is very "toy/ball oriented" and very playful.
Our Zaatar is looking for a loving family. He is only available as a pet, as his bite is somewhat incorrect. Zaatar is healthy in every aspect, and playful, sweet, a little laid back, but not shy. ( reserved as of 10/25/14)
I am posting my available dogs here on the main part of the blog for those who browse the internet only on their phones, or pads. When looking at the mobile version of my (and other) blogs, many of the side features are not visible right of hand, and only those folks who are more of a mobile wiz do know where to click on to see the rest of the menue.
(Girl Zucker, sable, available as a pet/companion dog.
Sugar Babe (Zucker) would prefer a home either as a single pet, or perhaps a more laid back small companion dog, or cat.
Sugar Babe has a tiny "soft spot" (open fontanelle) on her forehead, and one would want to avoid any trauma to her head. Otherwise, she is super healthy, outgoing, very smart, loves to play with her companions here at home, and loves to cuddle up on your lap. She is a good eater, and loves her fresh, unprocessed, non commercial, raw meat diet.
She comes with a very affordable purchase fee.
