Wanna feed my dog raw food; where to start?
I have a 2.5 year old Dobberman/ mixed breed. From the day I got him, under the vet's advice, I've only fed him dry dog food. He is extremely tall and thin(almost looks like a great dane) His stomach is very fragile. Anytime I would give him any kind of bones, he ends up chewing, completely eating it, then throws up a few ours later.
It obviously makes him sick. Once his vet told me that he had cholesterol, which would justify throwing up after eating bones. His vet tells me to keep him strictly on dry dog food. I just can not do that anymore; I feel so bad for the poor thing..
I started cooking pasta, veggies and chicken breast and my doggy is just thrilled everytime he eats now. As he is exteremely thin and tall, I feel he may need to consume some kind of bones for his joints, and to avoid arthiritis as he gets old. Lately, he has been asking a LOT for store bought bones.
I wish I could give real bones, but don't wanna hurt him.
Can I freeze, then thaw a chicken and give it to him? I've always hear that chicken bones can be deadly to animals, especially considering my dog has never really eaten "real" food on a daily basis.
Please help my doggy!
