I am so glad I found your website. I just received my order of LickoChops and Dinovite. My puppies love it. My 10 year old boxer licks his feet constantly so I have started him on the starvation yeast diet, however I am cooking the beef. My question is if I give him the raw beef should I freeze it for 48 hours before giving it to him.
Also, since I have 2 dogs that will be on this diet can I add cauliflower, green beans and broccoli to this just to give it some more substance. If so can I give it to them raw or should I cook it?
I am giving cooked chicken livers as treats. Should I be concerned with high cholesterol?
Welcome to Dogsaholic! I love the pictures that you have attached to this comment. These are great dogs with an equally great pet parent. I know where your hunch is coming from regarding the dog food, and it is a highly likely suspect especially if there are no significant changes in your routine over the past couple of weeks prior to this incident. It might be a bad batch of bags. What you can do for the meantime is to continue observing, and follow the current course of management that was previously provided for your GSD. They are resilient dogs in general and I believe he will become better. Let me know how we can help you further.
My good friend fosters cats and about a month ago I brought one of her fosters into my apartment for a trial weekend. Turns out, these little guys had fleas! I treated them, bathed them and they went back to their new homes flea free. However, left me with a flea problem! Upside: I discovered they had fleas within 12 hours of brining them home (Yes, I know I should have check sooner but they had received flea treatment the week before). Since they were young and adjusting, they only went in two rooms of my apartment – my bathroom and my room (carpeted). As soon as I found fleas I went to work. I washed all bedding (mine and the cats), clothes, etc. I vacuumed, treated my carpet with a product containing IGR, and then vacuumed several more times. I used a spray I got at Petco in the bathroom (don’t think it was IGR though). I have vacuumed and washed several times since, but no further flea treatment. I bought some flea lamps and have had those going to try and see if I still have fleas… no sign of them. It has been just over a month and not a single sign since I found fleas on one of the kittens. Could I still have fleas? Further steps I should take? Is it really possible they are all gone? Thanks!!
