Hello....I heard that they were using large quantities of green potatoes that could be potentially harmful. I will put a link up if I can find it--I have been researching this (well, on-line, anyways) since I got that notice.

wave Believe it or not, my life is so boring, or, I have such a thirst for knowledge (I think I will go with the second one) that I actually went and looked it up. I found this out:

Voodoo is a religion and Hoodoo is an African American system of folk magickal practice that has typically been handed down from generation to generation. Many Hoodoo practitioners in Louisiana are Roman Catholic and also practice some form Spiritualism or Spiritism.

So there you go! BUT--I still don't know which one chicken feet would be approriate for!shrug

Once I was buying chicken feet and beef heart, and the cashier asked me what I was gonna do with them, so I told her, very matter-of-fact, "VooDoo." She was silent for a long moment, and then she asked, "Really?"
I laughed then, and told her the truth. I think she was actually relieved, after her response!laugh out loud

Not to worry. My vet actually told me to give Adlai TWO 25 mg. benadryl. And he is a 28 lb. dog.

Choosing the Right Dog > Did anybody else fall in love with a breed *after*getting one?
Mason

The skinny fat- dog!

Yes! Mason, my Rat Terrier was a pet store "throwaway" I got from a friend who worked at a vet's. I really only marginally knew what a RT was, and now I am hooked.

It is a same to see the breed becoming more popular, and more and more ending up in rescue, though.cry

They are a very high-energy breed, and I don't think people realize that. Hence tons in rescue.

Dog Health > A lump. Cancer?

Mason

Mason has several lumps, one was right under his armpit and I had the most horrible feeling it may be cancer. The vet said it was just a lipoma! A lipoma is just a fatty deposit and is usually benign.

Someone should show her the Pottenger's Cats study!

For us, the ONLY thing that got rid of Thea's chronic UTIs was RAW! I don't know how someone could argue with something that basically cured her, when nothing else did! For me, the proof is in the dog, and that is really the only "study" I need!

Azmira was the first "natural" food I fed back when I didn't know any better.

Obviously, Dr. Newman wants to sell her own company's food, but why slam raw-fed dogs at the same time? Companies like Champion and Nature's Vareity try to emulate a raw diet....someone should tell them they are all wrong!

Plus that study sounds like a crock to me! (Sorry, I am just in a very inarticulate mood today. Crock was the nicer of the words that crossed my mind.)

Raw Food Diet > Is it really bad to....
Adlai

Yes, I have found Old Mother Hubbard "Neura" Meats in Big Lots for 50 cents a can! And the sardines, and Jack Mackarel can be found in Dollar General around here.

About grains and other non-meat items....every once in awhile, I hit the raw-feeding "jackpot" and will get some free prepared raw, (well, that happened once due to a freezer breakdown) or tons of "Trim" from a local farmer I buy meat from, but not often.

I know everyone on here will cringe, but I have been known to bust out my Dr. Pitcairn book (he has lotsa grain-inclusive, alternate protein source recipes, like "Canine Oats and Eggs") that I have used when things get tight or I have nothing thawed. I really don't see any problem with the occasional grainy meal, but then again, I am more of a BARF-type feeder (as opposed to Prey Model) than most on here. I find it to be way cheaper for us, (not for everyone, I realize) and my dogs thrive on it, so I keep doing it.
So, some days we really just improvise...my only advice would be not to do so if any of your dogs have a grain intolerance, ie in Thea's case, she will get a UTI really fast if she eats many grains. So, in her we cannot afford to skimp as we will end up at the vet's, defeating the whole purpose!

I have been broke/without transportation, and even busted out the crock-pot and made an el cheapo mish-mosh stew of leftover stuff, for everyone, human and canine!

But, I really see no problem with that once in awhile, ($$ is tight here, too, so I get what you're saying) and if agrees with your dog, you are certainly not doing a disservice to him....I really commend you for sticking with a WAY higher quality diet than reverting back to kibble! applause

Now, the day I gave everyone chicken noodle soup (from a CAN) for dinner (dogs and humans) I'll leave out!laugh out loud
