Default New puppy - boxer #3 for us!

Hello! I just rejoined Boxer Forums. It has been several years since I've been active, with my oldest baby now almost 10.

We recently brought Cleo, female fawn with black mask, into our lives and she is now 14 weeks.

I'm feeding her raw, because that's how the breeder started her, and because I've been interested in this for some time. But I'm still learning. Moxie, plain brindle female, is still eating kibble.

I'm just introducing myself and posting, per the forum welcome rules. Any thoughts on any of the above are welcome.

Thank you for letting me rejoin you all in boxer love!

Welcome back.

Congrats on the new pup.

I was thinking of doing raw, but it seemed like a lot to learn and getting everything right with vitamins, protein and bone amounts, etc. Probably easier once you actually start doing it. I do kind of a hybrid diet, kibble with some raw and other things added.

Thank you!

Yeah, raw is really intimidating. Even though I'm doing it, I don't really think I have it down. Raw proponents are really enthusiastic but there's so much differing information: supplements or no supplements? which kinds of supplements? turkey necks safe or not? goat's milk or no dairy products at all?

It's a challenge to figure it out -- but I'm not giving up! If I can get comfortable with it, I'm going to switch my older girl to raw, too.

Interesting, what are the cons about the necks? Its funny cause that is one of the things I give my guy and the vet actually told me as long as he isn't sensitive to it, its really good for his teeth and digestion.

Turkey necks are great for dogs, however I don't give them to leo anymore because I had a scare one time. Leo's teeth are not to big and he tried swallowing it! My German shepherd has no problem with the necks. So now Leo gets raw chicken feet, raw marrow bones or knuckle bones. Also raw goat milk is excellent

Ah, ok, so for Leo it was more of a choking hazard. I kept an eye on Zuke when I gave him his 1st neck because he has a habit of also trying to swallow things, but he laid down and just chewed it in pieces.

Love the chicken foot hanging out of his mouth. LOL!
