That was a great read ... Thank you so much Stephen ... I am sure this will be most helpful for us all on the forum. Perfectly explained with the pic too, oh you are good .... many thanks JoJo x
Hi Becky,With 3kids my freezer is always choc full,is it best to have a bulk load of frozen NI or carcases,instead of in my heavily laden fridge? Or should i just stick with Orijen? would really love to follow on your good diet when we pick pup up,just dont know what to do,Simply put i have no room in my freezer and little more in my fridge!!!!
Loved the pics,thanks even though it looks totally disgusting! Maybe i should make a job lot for all the family once a month ;0
Hi Sarah,Looks fab you know the Origen stephen, is it a plain kibble biscuit or like a muesli mix type of food. X
Hi Ali,As much as I'd love to, I couldn't commit to a BARF diet just now. Would it be ok then to continue to feed Lottie on Orijen mixed with some odd table scraps, or would you recommend using raw meat mixed in, and some bones when she's bigger?
Hi Curt3007,Many thanks Stephen, loved the pics and appreciate the time you took to do this. My pup will come having been fed on Royal Canin and I am thinking of swopping him to Origen and then possibly NI. May even go straight to NI, woud appreciate your thoughts.
WOW - my ex-Wife and her husband have the pharmacy in the High Street.Its a small world!...We are in southwold nearly every other weekend,so its like home to us,i love it and i love looking at all the different dogs being paraded along the promenade!Will be cool to add a cockapoo to them all,i have seen a few there. You lucky things having somewhere near the coast will def be interested in having a romantic break away with the man when you all renovated! Did you go to Saint Felix? I always look at that school and think oh if only i could afford all 3 to go there....fat chance! Looking forward to spending a lazy sunday outside the pub on the green with pup in tow
Hi Gemma, All the vets that I have had vary in their reaction to BARF from totally hostile to biting their lip to avoid telling me what they think of me! One even told me that my dog would die from salmonella! And that dog lived to 17! So don't be surprised if your vet is anti, but try to make up your own mind from the research you are doing. It's like GP's and complementary medicine - they just don't get it as it's outside their remit.Ideally I want to be able to have them both on the same diet so am speaking to my vet tonight re BARF for her pancreatitis.
I have already spoken with NI and I think it would be suitable but want to have Jess (JRT) pancreatitis tested again to see how she is now and give the vet a chance to give their view. Will be interesting to see what they say.
