Thank you for all the feedback. I thought something might not be right when I searched and tried to find his facility. I’m always cautious when it comes to feeding my Britts. This forum is a great resource and I really enjoy reading all the posts and learning as much as I can.
A co-op is being formed in my area. I am curious as to where their meat is sourced from. I can’t find it any where on their website. Does anyone know? I’m very particular about the meat I feed my dogs.
I just bought a furminator and have used it on my Brittanys. I only use it after they have a bath to get out the loose hair and trim them up a bit. In between baths, I use a boar hair brush and a slicker brush. So far, I have been satisfied with the results from the furminator.
I too have had dogs diagnosed with various cancers; one with hemagio sarcoma who died at 10 1/2; another with brain lesions who passed at 8 and 81/2; and another with mast cell and leukemia who passed at 14. They were all fed kibble all their lives; Eukanuba and California Natural. I now feed Bravo raw and Honest Kitchen. I believe it is not only the food but all the chemicals dogs come into contact daily, i.e., cleaning solutions we use in our homes, fertilizers in our gardens, flea treatments, etc.
My friend who orders from this company and inquired about the meats’ origin got a response from BRB. Not once did in the response did they address her concern or deny that the meat came from 3D animals. All they did was berate the individuals who were questioning them. They maintain the food is the best for the money. She is not using their food anymore.
I had a Brittany that was allergic to 26 different things. Among the foods he was allergic to were beef, pork, and lamb. He ate chicken, turkey and venison most of his life. He was also allergic to barley, tomatoes, soy, kelp, beets, and a number of grasses as well as dust, wool, and feathers. I don’t know how he could be allergic to feathers and be able to eat chicken, but poultry did not affect him. For chews, we used to get him ostrich and emu bones. He passed away at 10 1/2 years old from hemangio sarcoma.
I saw that too. I also looked at the minutes from Iredell County. You can find out a lot on the internet if you just look.
I feed the Force, Embark, Love, and Zeal on a rotating basis. They get Honest Kitchen in the AM and Bravo raw in the PM. I also give them beef knuckle bones, duck feet, bullysticks and trachea for their chewing pleasure. All of which come from Bravo. I too have a 3 yr old Britt, but I have to watch his weight because he has a tendency to gain weight.
Check out the address on line for Blue Ridge Beef and Lea-Way Farms, looks like the same address. I have a friend that feeds this, she’s trying to get in touch with them. Waiting for a call back.November 19, 2013 at 9:30 am in reply to: Should I feed Raw Venison, straight from the Deer? #28789 Report Abuse
While vension is a good source of protein, feeding raw game can expose you and your dog to the rabies virus and Chronic Wasting Disease. The only way to kill the rabies virus is through cooking. Freezing the meat does not kill the virus. Also, in recent years, Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) has become more prevalent in the deer population. I would only feed farm raised deer from a reliable source, to insure that you are not exposing yourself and your dog to either disease.
As a hunter for many years, we always wore rubber gloves to process game because you don’t always know what you’re dealing with. We’ve fed our dogs venison for years, but only cooked venison. I feed a raw diet to my dogs but it doesn’t include raw game meat.
How is your poodle doing? I have a 14 month old Brittany that is always hungry. She is extremely active so I’ve continued to feed her 3 times a day. She is on Bravo Beef Blend and Honest Kitchen. I have also had to add some kibble to her diet just to get her weight up. I’m not crazy about adding the kibble (Halo) but it seems to be working. She gets between 7.5 to 8 oz. of raw a day along with 1.5 cups of honest kitchen (dry measurement) twice a day. This dog runs, just for the joy of it, all day long.
I’ve been feeding raw for about two years now but I have not given my dogs any necks, etc. How do you feed necks without the dogs getting a mess all over? I have carpeting throughout my entire house, even in the kitchen.
