Ever take a class in statistics? If you have, you're aware that scientific study results can be interpreted in many ways and can be manipulated.

I want to know who funded this study. I'm betting that it was those involved in so called "pet food" manufacture. My dogs do great on raw, and I'm sticking with raw!

Yeah, Saya, I think that's a good idea. I'm thinking my girls should be alright with it, but I'd hate to make them sick. The bone content in rabbits seems to be a little lower than chicken, which is why I'm trying it since my three dogs are between 8 and 16 lbs.

They're having beef ribs with some side meat tonight, so I think I'll slip in some rabbit with that.

If the poop looks good, hopefully they'll be ready for a rabbit meal.

Thanks!

I have a few questions about feeding rabbit pieces. First, I have no idea as to the percentage of bone in rabbit parts or whole rabbit. Anyone know? The rabbit came with liver, kidneys and heart. I'm assuming I can give these to my dogs?

Since my dogs have never had it before, do I need to introduce the meat in small amounts? They eat beef, pork, turkey, chicken, and fish like there is no tommorow...

My three dogs are all small (8, 11, and 17 lbs.), but only one was “picky.” She just couldn’t get past the skin and membranes. Try giving her small thighs that have been skinned and slashed a couple times with a knife. If you try wings, leave them whole, strip as much skin as possible and slash them, too. Once she gets the hang of eating raw, you won’t have to do this). Remember, she may not realize raw chicken is even food! You may need to hold the end of the bone to encourage her, and help her learn how to tear the meat for a few days. It also helps if the dog is hungry. You might try skipping a meal before trying raw again (its not being mean; fasting is pretty normal for wild canines).

I’d hold off on feeding eggs. Raw or cooked, some dogs just can’t tolerate them. I’ve tried both with my dogs, and so far it actually causes them to have diarrhea. Pumpkin can help – my dogs love it (1 to 1 ½ teaspoons only), and so can probiotics. You might want to try giving her probiotics and digestive enzymes sprinkled on her food until she settles down.

Good luck!
