Hey all! So I started my dog on reel raw and he absolutely loves it! Ive been feeding him mainly chicken and turkey for the past few weeks. Today I fed him beef, and he didn’t even touch it. With the chicken and turkey, he inhaled them. But the beef patty, he ate a piece and spit it out. I was wondering if this is something to be worried about, or should I keep trying to feed him it? He has had beef before, in both kibble and home cooked ways. But not raw.
I would offer it once or twice more, but not force it. If you can get plenty of variety in other protein sources, I wouldn’t worry about feeding beef if he doesn’t take to it.
One of mine will eat beef, but immediately throw it back up. It just doesn’t agree with him.
A few years ago I gave one of my bigger dogs a few chicken hearts, and he ate a couple and didn’t finish them. The result was diarrhea. Sometimes they know better than we do!
One reason I stopped using Reel Raw was the fact that alot of it seemed very fatty. Does the beef look fatty?
He ate the beef finally. But as far as it being fatty, I really can’t tell to be honest. It looks like a burger patty to me.
May be he wants some thing else in his meal. Try to bring variation in your dogs’ meal.
Maybe the beef slice was too difficult to chew?
What dog breed is it?
Hi, my kitten eats a raw diet, at first she wouldn’t touch turkey pre-made frozen… he may just like the more leaner white meats with less blood etc, have you tried kangaroo dogs all love kangaroo but kangaroo taste more meaty & is a stronger meat, I didn’t like it, look at trying Rabbit, Goat, Pork, white meats…..
Is this Pre-made frozen raw your feeding or home made raw?? My kitten wouldn’t eat the Pre-made Raw patties plus when I smelt them they didn’t smell like raw meat should smell, I think I wouldn’t of eaten it as well…. can you take them back? I bought frozen pre-made patties & contacted the company on their Face Book page & they said take back & exchange & try the Rabbit instead but she still wasn’t fussed about the rabbit either, I think it was the brand of raw, so now I buy the fridge chilled raw, its not frozen & she loves it.. I just put in the freezer & freeze it & smells like meat should smell..
