I always get flagged on CL, but I've had lots of luck on Freecycle. I just use judgment...if the people seem "normal," then I'm OK with feeding the meat. I've never had a problem and gotten 200+ pounds of meat over the last couple years.

I take whatever they have. I don't ask people to dig through their own garbage, essentially (since it's something they'll throw out, anyway). I've gotten seasoned stuff that I just threw out myself.

My experience is that people are more willing to give you what they have if they don't have to pick it over first.

Duke is highly allergic to chicken.

He tolerates duck and turkey just fine.

Raw Food Diet > Specifically what meats to feed?

Read Chance's "Beginner's Guide" and Charlie's "Guide to Proteins." I just bumped them to the top.

Yes, turkey and chicken are fine for bone (watch the cuts depending on size of the dog). But turkey and chicken alone are not enough. You want to aim for 50% red meat. Are you including organ? The diet is incomplete with it.

The frog, dove, etc. would be fine here and there. But you still want 50% red meat.

Duke has both food and environmental allergies.

Are you on pre-made, commercial raw, or do you make your own? Either way, I would try a completely different protein. Eliminate lamb entirely for at least two weeks, try a new protein, and see if the itching gets better. If so, then lamb is the culprit.

Also, check the ingredient list on that supplement. Does it contain flax or other grains? Duke used to get Nupro as a supplement and he reacted to something in it. As soon as I took out the Nupro, his red/itchy skin went away.

Duke is allergic to lamb, chicken, and grains. I know how frustrating food allergies can be!

ETA: I would *definitely* try eliminating the Transfer Factor first. I just looked up the ingredient list and it contains soybean, flaxseed, and sunflower oils, as well as chicken liver and eggs. Any of these could potentially be allergens. There's also mushroom, turkey, yeast, and olive leaf--I don't know if those could be allergens too. I suspect it's a possibility.

Try eliminating the supplement and see what happens! Remember that you have to keep it out of the diet for at LEAST 2 weeks. Good luck!

I would hold off on trying to pack on weight until the dental issues are addressed.

Duke just had a dental procedure last week and he is still on mushy food for the next two weeks. Chewing is not fun for him right now. If your girl has an infection, I suspect it's painful to chew. Plus, sounds like she's new to your home? A change in environment will affect appetite.

Hopefully you can get her in for that potentially infected tooth ASAP. An abscessed tooth is nothing to mess around with. Does the vet know about your suspicion of an infection? You might mention it, if not. I can't imagine a vet would want to wait several weeks to address something like that. And they may want to clear the infection before doing the cleaning. Just a few things I learned recently from Duke's chipped tooth!

Poor girl. Good for you for rescuing her! blue dog

Liver is essential to the diet--it's not optional.

Try cutting it in very small small pieces, freezing in a single layer on a cookie sheet, then lifting the frozen pieces off with a spatula and tossing in a freezer bag. Feed little bits at a time as treats while still frozen. Gradually increase the size of your pieces, if you'd like.

Some dogs don't like the texture. Feeding liver frozen seems to work for a lot of dogs.

Also, CAUTION on pork chop bones. They are mechanically sawed and usually very sharp. I would never feed a pork chop bone.

Depends on the number of live organisms per pill. I would check the label for dosage. Duke's holistic vet recommends 20 million to 500 million live organisms per dose/per day.

Also check the strain(s). Not all probiotic supplements are the same. See this summary from a very reliable source:
