Recently on a chat that I attend on Monday's I was told that I needed to stay away from liver. So that got ma thinking about what other treat meat she should introduce to us. On a recent grocery trip, she browsed the meat aisle to see what she could find. She came home with a package of ground lamb. She offered it to us raw but none of us fur kids would even give it a try so she saute'd it. She didn't add any salt or seasoning to it and when it was done she divided it on to separate plates and let it cool a little. It was still warm when she gave it to us but after a couple of sniffs I decided to take a tiny bite. Jenny Sue scoffed hers down in a heartbeat, Scooby looked to me for guidance. Appawently he never had it neither. One nibble and I was hooked. I ate everything on my plate and so did Scooby. That was really good. I can't believe ma expected us to eat it raw.When she offers raw food like that we all act like she is trying to poison us. Now I know she would never do that but we still act like she is.
We looked up the nutritional value of the lamb and this is what we found:
We ate 3 pounds of lamb but it was proportioned between us all. Scooby got 1/2 pound , Jenny Sue got a 3/4 of a pound and I got the rest. We did see that lamb chops are lower in fat than ground lamb. That will be the next thing we try. Lets face it Lamb is expensive. Sometimes it can be twice the cost as beef but there are times that we can catch it on sale.
There were some other meats that ma thought about getting but really wanted to do some research before buying it. There was Ox tail, Tongue and beef hearts. None of these are really pretty to look at but when it comes to our special meals , looks don't matter.
Has anyone ever fed these to your canines?
If not, what types of meats do you recommend?
We won't eat raw meat. Ma has tried to mix it with our kibble but I will pick out kibble and leave the meat in the bowl. Jenny Sue will not touch it and Scooby Doo runs and hides when he smells raw in his bowl. Ma has to saute our meat. She does leave it medium raw so its not totally cooked through.
So now its your turn. What types of meats do you feed your pets? Do you allow any types of bones?
