Re: Blue Ridge Beef - Puppy Mix (Raw)

Thank you for the info. I will not be feeding this stuff to the new pup. I am seeing similar opinions the more I look into their foods.

Re: Blue Ridge Beef - Puppy Mix (Raw)

Reply from the rep regarding calcium and phosphorus levels... "The product must be dried before the analysis is made. We do run calcium and it is different on each product. Puppy mix shows 0.850 on calcium." No answer for phosphorus. I have a month to get comfortable and find the right thi...

Re: Blue Ridge Beef - Puppy Mix (Raw)

If I don't go with the BRB mix, I think I'll put her on Earthborn Holistics until I learn a bit more about feeding raw. I don't want to mess anything up with a growing pup.

Blue Ridge Beef - Puppy Mix (Raw)

Hey everyone! Has anyone used Blue Ridge Beef's Puppy Mix? I'm looking for opinions on this food for a German Shepherd puppy. I talked to the rep, who stated "On the bone or organ we do not do over 10% in any of our products, some organs have to be used sparingly, but our puppy mix has proven t...

Re: Temperament Testing

I don't do rescue anymore, but I do temperament tests/evaluations for other rescues and shelters in the area. I use a modified Blue Dog temperament evaluation, and I always video tape. I have a secondary handler that I've trained so they can spot things I may miss (ex: whale eye if I'm at the rear o...

Re: Why do you feed the food you do?

I'm switching my dogs to TOTW Prairie. 30lb bag on Amazon is $51 and shipped free. I had Magnum seen by a holistic vet and she recommended a grain free diet for him, due to his itchy skin. Maui has been gassy lately and I would like to see how they do on the new food. Ordering a bag this week since ...

Re: 102 pounds of LOVE!!!

So sorry Michelle. I hate working with new vets for that very reason. I would fight the charges though, and try to get them to come down a bit on the amount you owe since they did them without your authorization. :hug:

Re: Why do you feed the food you do?

The dogs get Kirkland Signature because it's a fairly decent food and affordable. Though I would love to put them on something else. My cat gets Wellness Core canned, he has allergies and also has a hard time with dry food...he's done the best on the Core (as opposed to just Wellness grain-free form...

They were all watched closely, never saw them drink any saltwater. I guess it's always a possibility though.
