Trotters = Toothbrush!! laugh out loud

My two quite enjoy a trotter on occasion. Indeed a lot of bony bits but also good tendons...does quite a job of cleaning teeth. I've not had problems with chipped teeth. I think these are all in all softer than some other bones.

Thanks so much for responding Maxwell. You've got so much knowledge in all of this. I know I dont have her on pure rabbit, but I just didnt think I could keep only rabbit and keep her healthy. So she gets tripe (she tends to get constipated and the vet suggested this) and a bit of organ supplement. I was interested that Maxwell reacted to sardines. In hindsight her last ear flareup was immediately following one or two meals of sardines in a few days. I'll read your post again more carefully (wish you could read a post and respond to it at the same time) and follow up on that. Thanks again.

Hi everyone...hope you will forgive me for cross posting. I also put this in raw forum. But thought there might be other folks here that dont go to raw forum who could guide me.

My Sweet Jessie is a 10 year old shepherd/retriever mix. She has had chronic, wretched, horrible food allergies that result in ear infections and make her pretty miserable. When I switched her to raw about two years ago, I saw a dramatic improvement in her ears, but didnt clear it up entirely. My vet suggested keeping her only on rabbit/hare. This has also helped a bit more. But the problem is that rabbit is such a lean meat that I am struggling to keep weight on her. Since I have started her on only rabbit, she has dropped about 4 kg off her usual 28 kg weight. Anyone have any suggestions for something I could add to her diet that she might tolerate but if fairly 'fatty'? I thought about making her some satin balls, but would want to leave out the grains. Does anyone know a recipe for satin balls that does not include grain? Meat, cream cheese, peanut butter...something like that? What about duck fat? Any thoughts from all of you with great experience? Oh she currently eats a little over a kilo a day and is always hungry and ready for another meal. I also add in tripe to her diet every few days, an occasional mackeral or other fish and some organ meat. But the bulk of her diet is rabbit/hare

Raw Food Diet > Lots of allergies = too expensive // PLEASE help with options // he's suffering

HI there....I've got an allergic dog as well. We are doing reasonably well on mostly rabbit and hare. It really does make a difference. I know it can be expensive, but to follow up on what Max said: before we started raw, I easily spent 1-2 thousand a year on vet bills. We were ALWAYS at the vet and she was always on meds. We were considering a $4000 surgery to remove her badly infected ears since we couldnt clean them up. Then some brilliant Vet FINALLY suggested it was a food allergy. Dont know why it took so long to figure that out. So I may pay more for food for her, but I'm way better off in the long run.

I bring it up to my vet because one of my pups is one raw to try to combat allergies. Does a reasonable job of it. My usual vet is okay with it. Has never discouraged it, but I suspect he is fairly neutral. HIs partner in the practice seems much more actively pro-raw and suggested I try to put Jess on a rabbit only diet as a protein. She was pretty great. Now the problem is finding a steady supply of rabbit! Not easily done.
