to your dogs Raw diet aside from meat, bones, and organs?
Bailey had a grade 2 mast cell tumor removed so we have been giving her a blend of blueberries, kale, and salmon oil every morning.

We only add fish oil right now, but when we get chickens again they will get eggs added as well two or three times a week. I don't like store bought eggs, so I'm holding off for our own that I know what they are fed and will get TONS of gass and other greens from being free range.

My dogs and cats get a good amount of supplements for various reasons
-Raw eggs, whenever I think about it maybe a few-a half dozen a month
-Connectin canine and feline for the two old members of the pack it's glucosamine/chondriotin/hyluronic acid and a bunch of herbs
-Optagest for the two young ones. a prebiotic and enzyme powder to aid digestion.
-Iceland Pure sardine/anchovy oil or Salmon oil
-Wysong PH- for my kitty who has had Struvite Crystal. It keeps his body at the correct ph level
-Rx-zyme- for my two eldest, it is a better more expensive version of optagest
-Answers Raw Goat milk with added probiotics, honey and cinnamon
-Diatomaceous earth for the young dog that eats wild critters
-Standard Process Vit E and selenium supplement cause our soil doesn't have enough selenium and I can't afford all grass fed meat plus my eldest had a spindle cell sarcoma removed two years ago and both of these from whole food sources are recommended to combat cancer
-Standard Process Catalyn, a multi vit that is good if you do not have access to all the organs and glands in your animals food. I mostly only have access to kidney and liver so this is a nice way to round out their meals. Not soemthing I give everyday but maybe 4 times a week too all
-My eldest is on something called HC-ease which is for his spine and mainly his neck. Two weeks ago he had 2 discs rupture in his back, one in his lower back, one in his neck. He was left unable to walk and in severe pain, but with steriods, pain meds and LOTS of TLC he is up and walking, getting accupuncture and doing underwater therapy along with this supplement
-Curcuvet a high concentration of turmerisc know for it's many healing abilities. My eldest was originally put on curcuvet when he was diagnosed with cancer. His vet is keeping him on curcuvet cause it is an all around good thing for dogs especially older ones
-Last but not leat Harmonize the Stoimach, also for my eldest. He has food stagnation problems so he gets these right before mealtime, they really help and he loves to chew them up.
Stanley gets an egg every day on his breakfast, twice a week a tin of sardines in water and when I remember a blob of coconut oil or plain yoghurt. Our (NZ) lamb, beef and horse is grassfed so probably don't really need the sardines, but I feed for variety.
He doesn't like fruit.
He does get to clean up the roasting tray and will spend a long time lying down extracting as much as he can.
Husband gives him a small piece of toast every morning.
Small cube of cheese a couple of times a week.
Any suitable meal scraps of ours.
The pup pictured in my avatar has had chronic kidney disease since birth (symptoms were first noticed when she was six weeks old). She also had a collapsing trachea and the breeder hand fed (syringe fed actually) her raw goats milk and egg whites for about a week til she was able to eat on her own. In addition to her high protein raw diet I give her spirulina and chlorophyll (for blood purifying and building properties), activated charcoal for toxin removal, enzymes to help with digestion, probiotics (whole food and supplement to help with immune system and nitrogen trapping), a prebiotic fiber supplement (for nitrogen trapping), purified and bottled water, eggs (for the antioxidant glutathione that they provide), small amounts of fruits and veggies (for extra antioxidants), extra whole food (glandular based) B and C vitamins due to the excessive urinating and whole food "glandulars" to support her remaining kidney function and her liver.
She's doing fantastic. She just turned seven the end of June 2013 and is still in excellent health..
My other pups (eight total) also get many of the same things I give her as they didn't all have the best start to life. Our Chihuahua was adopted at age nine (now sixteen) and had HORRIBLE eyes, teeth and coat etc. She took right away to raw feeding and despite having limited teeth could strip a chicken leg or thigh like the best of them .. She has lost a few more teeth and now gets only ground. We have a Pom that we adopted at age six months and developed "obsessive compulsive disorder" after getting her rabies shot. She too has to have ground as she WON'T chew on anything including raw meaty bones..
My girl gets the occasional string cheese pieces for training, she loves carrots and snowpeas, and when its super hot she gets icecubes flavored with a bit of broth or frozen greek yoghurt. Sometimes a lick of peanut butter when I'm making a protein shake for myself. She goes nuts for her frozen treats
My dogs love something liquid on their diet and I use the broth from chickens or sometimes stewed potato juice which they lick the bowl clean. I also use a mineral supplement because of the low levels in meats including chicken, beef, pork, and fish. I am particularly concerned about trace minerals like cu, z, and mn.
Tomatoes, Potatoes and Rhubarb are Toxic to Pets
Tomatoes, potatoes and rhubarb contain oxalates, which trigger abnormalities with the nervous system, kidneys and digestive tract. Especially toxic are green tomatoes, green potatoes, potato skins, and tomato leaves and plants, can trigger tremors, seizure and heart arrhythimia, so tomatoes should never be given to dogs.
