I SAID Abady GRANULAR
I SAID Abady CANNED
ALL RAW food has SAMONELLA – the question is how much. By definition it is RAW – and the only way to completely kill samonella is COOKING. And if you COOK IT, it is NOT RAW. Fast freezing it after prep can reduce the samonella but it will not kill it all. ANd the question is how much the manufacturer or customer fill comfortable with. Abady is fussier – didn’t like that batch because it came out a bit higher on their post freeze check than they want BTW so they called it back (very very very small batch btw.). You can NOT buy RAW without getting samonella and bacteria in the food.ANnSParticipant
Caribou Creek Gold – developed by sled dog folks. Used by the guy who won the Iditarod 5 times. Go to their website and email Mary and Lloyd and they will put you in contact with their firend who handles shipping small orders (like less than food for a kennel full) Packs about 696 calories a cup – nearly 3 times any conventional kibble.
Abady – granular and kibble. Abady recommends the granular over the kibble. They want you to talk to them before picking one of their foods. There are different versions of the granular and the canned. I use Classic granular – about 796 calories a cup so 1 cup of it = over 2 cups of the other foods. They do a frozen raw but have never mentioned it to me as choice for my guys in years.
(Abady’s website is very simplistic – jsut call them. Bob Abady was a French biochemist who came here after WWII and he introduced Bouviers to the US.) Abady is ‘the’ choice for the caliber of dogs that do Westminster and also run the Iditarod. As close to custom as you can get. Abady will tell you where you can buy it (some stores in Chicago and east coast) or you can have it shipped.
I ship them in (and I’m feeding more lbs of dogs than your boxers.. My guys are a working mobility Service Dog and the other a top level Obedience competition dog — high demands on them to stay fit and healthy — and these WORK. Abady has been working for me for nearly 50 years. You will NOT find either of these foods in big box stores.
