    Fae has joined us at the apartment! Unfortunately I didn't read up on moving a cat so she hasn't been eating We brought her over Sunday night, she ate a little bit of dry food I left out overnight (thought it might make her more comfortable?), but has not eaten anything I've put out since. She licked some of the oil from a can of tuna I put in the food bowl (only about 1/4 of a can), would not eat from my hand either. I did not realize she'd be so nervous from the move

    She's going to the vet tomorrow so I'm hoping this place seems like a safe haven after her shots and not just more stressful!

    You can't quite see how tubby she is, but here's my fur-baby.

    I switched my mom's cat over to grain-free food. It will be a month on the 11th. Although, my mom has snuck him some Fancy Feast twice. grrr... He has had a history of throwing up rather frequently. Sometimes it is just food and other times there is a hair ball in with the food. He has thrown up twice since the change, both times with a hair ball evident. What is the deal the hairballs? If a cat naturally licks itself clean, its body should be equipped with a better mechanism, for dealing with hairballs, than puking, right? Will it get better the longer he is grain-free?

    Hello primal pet-owners!

    My girlfriend and I feed our dog (a min-pin/chihuahua mix) an all raw diet... she was a rescue, was very skinny and weak when we got her... also she had a pretty bad cataract in one eye. The raw diet (grass fed beef and occasionally organs) made her gain weight very rapidly, she's very muscular (and smart!) and her cataract is pretty much gone.

    Lately we've been only able to find leaner meat to feed her, and I can tell she's lost a little weight; she also acts very hungry when we feed her, like she hasn't eaten in days. However, I just received an order of US Wellness's Pet Burger, which is a lot higher is fat and has organs mixed in. It's a lot cheaper too! I'll update with how she does on this.
    I never know what to put in these things. I write songs!

    Riley (my baby!). He's a Havanese. Currently 6.5 years old. Has been eating a raw diet since we got him at 16 weeks old. Attachment 7431

    His current favourite delicacies are: cornish hen bodies, duck necks or green beef tripe. All are mixed with a green veggie supplement (he hates his veggies) and wild pacific salmon oil.

    Some more recent pictures of him:

    Update on Fae: her coat is so much more glossy and soft (natural oils being produced) on this Orijen dry food. She's 100% transitioned in under 2 weeks with no bowel issues that I have detected. Her poop is quite smelly though! I got a better litter that should help with that. Now I'm wondering if I should keep her with this food 2/3 cup a day (morning and evening) or give her just under 2/3 (shake out a bit of the 1/3 cup at each serving) to see if she loses weight. I guess I'll wait a month or two to make sure she's doing okay with this food and this amount. She has an empty bowl by the time the next meal comes around if I'm not late in serving her.

    I would keep her on the regular serving for a while to see if she stays at the weight she is or if it changes (up or down) Probably give it a couple months unless you see an obvious change... Is she stays the same in that time then after a few months start deducting a bit to alow her to loose weight, if she starts putting on weight before then, then cut back earlier.
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    I Have a Lurcher who has such a delicate stomach that I fear feeding him anything else but his 'chappi' chicken/fish/rice tinned food. He does however enjoy fruit and veg, cheese and chicken. Raw bones got a really bad reaction. Shame really as he is a beautiful hunting dog. I wish I had the time to devote to his instinctual needs.

    hey everbody, i was wondering what your flea regime is like. i don't think that the flea drops are very healthy bou they do work. A natural food place says acv and garlic does well but it takes a couple of weeks to kill them. But then when i did some research i found out that garlic is bad and is a blood thinner for dogs. Also wondering about heart worm prevention. Thanks for any help in advance.
