    DefaultWhole Prey Provider

    Hi, I currently feed RMB'S, MM,Green Tripe,Liver,Heart,Kidneys and Tongue from fresh beef. I grind it up to a hamburger and package it in non-edible labeling. For myself I do not package it, but I get such an excess supply that I sell it as well. Now I am thinking of adding whole prey rabbit. I have looked online for a supplier here on the West coast, and the only one I found has a LONG waiting list. So, I am looking for input. Should I offer it in a variety of ways, such as ground, whole/with fur (never cut), skinned with visera removed and leave the heart,liver and lungs in. How many of you feed rabbit, how popular is it? Tell me what you like about feeding rabbit.
    Thanks for your input, Tina

    Hare Today Gone Tomorrow does some whole prey stuff. Depends on where you live is the shipping would be too much.

    I love feeding rabbit, both dogs do really well on it. The issue for me is that I actually have three pet rabbits, and so the rabbits I buy for the dogs must be skinned and cleaned, preferably with no heads. So that they don't *really* look like rabbits anymore. I can get a pretty good deal on whole rabbits for $2/pound, but I just can't do it.

    I feed whole prey rabbit w/ skin and head, intact. But there was and still is some adjustment, they will be eating the intestinal track and all it conveys... :-)

    Tiegan does okay w/ it. I feed it once a week, 1 to 1.5 lb size rabbits. Anything bigger and she loses interest. Also I have to make a slice in the rabbit to get her to know what to do. My thought on this is Lab's motor pattern is to chase, catch, retrieve. Not to eat... so a little help in necessary.

    I get mine from Stafford, VA. I don't think she ships, but I can find out if you would like.
