Well, it’s been an interesting week or so since I began changing our pets’ foods from commercial dogs' and cat's foods to Bones And Raw Meat. Thought you might be interested in how it is going (or not).
Cassie and Tucker are still fed mostly commercial dog food with the addition of raw meat or egg. My husband is still having a hard time with this concept, however, I suspect it won’t be too much longer until he is more supportive. Tonight he did give each of them a nice, big, fresh goose egg to go with their dog chow.
The goose egg was fully in its natural state…unbroken. I had been breaking them open before they were fed. Tucker and Cassie each spent a while analyzing this peculiar dinner addition. After a bit, Tucker did manage to get his opened and rapidly ate it. Cassie, on the other hand, looked at hers, licked it, moved it, and couldn’t figure out what to do next. Tucker decided to show her how to open and eat it. She looked a bit puzzled when Tucker didn’t share.
Katie Cat is still refusing to eat any of this “fresh” stuff, but she does give everything a few licks. Now, she only receives a handful of the diet food which she has never liked to eat and has no Ocean Flavored mix added. She’s not starving and I am hopeful that she will eventually start to eat some of the fresh food.
Muppet is doing great. He is really enjoying his chicken and/or ground beef. Although he still begs for some cooked “people” food, he is primarily eating fresh meats. I can see a difference in his activity level! This old, arthritic “pup” has been running throughout the house! He will be 14 years old next week. His eyes seem clearer and his hacking cough (heart cough) has decreased! AND my husband has noticed! That’s why I think he’ll start being more cooperative in feeding Cassie and Tucker more fresh foods, soon.
