Hi, I need some help against fleas. I've been on raw food for 6 months, and doing well with it. But this spring, I got a bunch of fleas, and my people don't want to use chemicals to get rid of them. We've already tried garlic (cloves and powder) in my food, and topical treatments of garlic powder and tea tree oil. We're going to try apple cider vinegar next, topically. My people say that their previous dogs (who ate kibble) were free of fleas with just some oral garlic pills. Why won't that work for me? Do you know of any other natural remedies we can try?
Thanks......

Cali eats a chicken foot every morning. I have to break it in half to get her interested, or else she just tries to bury it. I hope she'll learn to eat it without me having to break it. (Cali is new to raw food -- we've had her two months.) I get chicken feet from local organic farmers.

Hey, thanks for all the good ideas. I'm glad to find out that some other dogs hate liver too. Today I tried actually *training* Cali a command to "eat your food." She actually responded very well and ate half a chicken liver to get some treats. Maybe with time, she will learn to like it, as some of you have reported for your dogs. Thanks.

Thanks for your ideas. (I posted this initially.) So what do wild dogs do -- die from not eating liver, because they don't like it?? It doesn't seem right for me to have to force the organs on my dog. What about skipping the liver and giving her eggs instead? She loves eggs, and don't they have the necessary vitamins?

I have a 35-pound mixed breed, named Cali, 1yo. We have owned her for 2 months, and we started her on raw food right away when we got her. (I have little other experience with raw fed pets.) She has been doing great, but she won't eat liver or kidney. Sometimes she will eat calf liver if I cut it up and cook it very slightly in lard. Sometimes I "force feed" the liver to her, with treats. I really need the feeding to be easier on me. Aren't dogs supposed to *like* liver? Do all dogs have to eat liver to be healthy? What should I do?

Also, I'd like her to eat pork liver, or kidneys, which don't even taste as good as calf liver. I like calf liver myself and don't want to give it to the dog!

By the way, I'm new to the forum, and I tried to search for "liver" but I couldn't find anything specific to my question. If there's a better way to find answers, besides asking on a new thread, please say so!

Thanks for your help.
