I feed my two family dogs raw dog food. Not dry. Not cooked. Raw. Yes, you heard me right. RAW. As in, uncooked meat and organs. And, yes, it is more expensive than kibble, but it’s worth it. I will explain my thinking and then provide links if you want to dive deeper into the why.Read more...
Having a dog is not all sunshine and roses. Don’t get me wrong, it’s hard not to melt when I see this face and I usually forget all wrongs done with one look into his eyes, but there are messy parts of pet ownership I could do without.
You know, like the barking, shedding and daily poop pick-up. Can I get an AMEN?
Here's an example. The other day Abby noticed a foul smell out on our front porch. It's a favorite spot for Mercy, and sometimes Scout. They love to sit on the window seat to look out into the front yard or wait for someone to come home.
This particular day, the window seat and surrounding area showed signs of possible vomit. ICK! I can’t stand that smell! However, We weren’t sure because not all the evidence remained, if you know what I mean. Again, ick. We also didn’t know which dog was the suspect. That is, until later in the same day.
Turns out Scout’s tummy didn’t like the temporary change in food. It came up almost as soon as it went down. I’m guessing that’s what happened on the porch earlier in the day too, except Mercy was around to eat it. TMI? Sorry.
(Note to self: Don’t forget to reorder their raw dog food in a timely manner next time.)
Good news is, Scout has recovered fine. I just threw the dry food away and made another plan. I was also glad I could use my go-to Digize digestive oil on him just as easily as I could on me. Rubbed a little on his belly and life was as good as new for him.
As for me, I still need to finish the clean up. I sprinkled a mixture of baking soda and citrus fresh essential oil on the carpet and have yet to vacuum that up. I figure the longer I leave it, the better it will smell- and, well, truth is, I kind of forgot about it too. Out of sight, out of mind, right?
