I have fed quite a bit of trachea since it comes attached to the scrap deer necks and roadkill deer I pick up. I've found it is amazing at cleaning teeth up.

Dogs don't always poop at the same time, or even daily for that matter.

And throwing up happens sometimes. It is no big deal. They will also throw up if they have an empty stomach.

They don't go bad. I have some that have been hanging around for about 4 years. They get lost and refound under the couch, bed, etc.

Don't worry about germs.

I have been giving my dogs deer antler for years. Most of it has come from meat packing places. They really enjoy it.

Some dogs are trained to find antlers in the woods. The deer shed their antlers sometime between january and april.

Depending on the shape of the antler and the size they may need to be cut with a hack saw. If they are long enough and curved enough it could potentially poke the dogs eye.

Raw Food Diet > Not about dogs, but anyone raw feed a ferret before

My crew isn't currently 100% litter trained so I don't keep bedding in all the pans. I just have a "nest" box with fabric in them.

Something that has worked in the past prior to my rescue of a horribly abused girl (the one who isn't totally box trained) was getting woven floor mats at the dollar store. That way you can shake it out outside and get all the little pieces of bone, fur and feathers off and wash when needed. The mats can be placed over your normal bedding or in a specific place where they prefer to eat, such as a corner.

I have had a total of 6 ferrets. Only 1 was hard to switch. A couple may have took some time to go from ground to meat chunks but for the most part everyone took to it like fish to water.

You can get them online but I raised my own quail for a while. It is very easy as well. I have fed chicks too thinking Those came from farmers locally. When they had any die I got them. I also got ducklings that way.

I even fed the ferrets any partially developed quail and duck eggs that ended up dying in my incubator before they hatched.

Come to think of it I may have even tried to feed them snake. It was a baby rat snake that someone killed because they thought it was a rattle snake cry

Ferrets can and will really eat just about anything. When friends butcher chickens that save me the heads, feet and innards. I always pick out the organs and gizzards for the ferrets.

It is fun watching them with small rabbits or other things close to their size. Crazy to think that something so small has all that power

I have 4 ferrets which are raw fed. Whole prey that I have fed include mice, rats, rabbits (pinkies and 1 pound or smaller furred babies), fetal goat, piglets, squirrel, quail and small chickens that have been partially plucked. I have also fed meat from deer, cow, beaver, ground hog, goat, pig, lamb/mutton, fish, rabbit and possibly some other things which I cannot think of.

Most people feed a diet heavier in bone and feed as much as the ferrets will eat.

I used to be a ferret raw feeding mentor but no longer have the time or patience for it. Here is the website though

You could always simmer it for an hour or so until the bones are mush. Or pressure cook it.. Or even stick it in a slow cooker for the day so you don't have to worry about bones. It'll all be mush

Try the patties.

Shes used to it, it is more mild than kibble and the bone should help prevent splarts.

They should be willing to feed it.. Especially since you've let them know about her allergies.
