hi all and happy new year! my wee labby, Gus, came home dec.27, he's a real sweetie and doing very good with crate and potty training. I just love him... ;D i feed him barf, his breeder weaned him straight to barf, i bought fifty lbs. of it frozen fom her. when i took him in to get his vet check she was all smiles until i told her what i'm feeding... because she says you can't be sure he's getting the right amounts of everything he needs. she recommends switching to large breed puppy food. My breeder made this batch from a whole organically raised, grazed cow, its ground with the bones and organs and a small amount of berries, i also give him 1/2tsp. per 10 pounds of body weight of fish oil. the meal comes in about 1 lbs. "meat balls" which i defrost - right now he gets about half a ball per meal twice a day (which is how the breeder fed) she told me to add organic plain yogurt 1 tsp,or 1/2 a raw egg, or fresh/canned fish a couple times a week and i have also given him chicken necks and yesterday a piece of beef neck bone to gnaw on, if i give the chicken neck i take out about that size amount out of his meat ball. and so my question is: how do i know he's getting the right stuff? and the right quantities to ensure he's growing well.
