I wanted to see that! I think it's on Netflix right now. I just always go with this when talking to people about it (I know I said it before): Dogs have been around for 15000 years. Dog food has only been used for 50. :P
Good luck with that! Iams is no good, even among dog foods. I remember when it first came out it was supposed to be primo stuff. We're slowly getting a better education on what dogs should eat. Inside they are identical to a wolf, no matter what breed they are. All their internal parts are still wolfy! :)
She ate the heck out of it. But she's sitting next to me right now and I can literally smell it on her breath at about 4 ft away. :/ It's like she ate a dead animal. Beef, green tripe, chicken, chicken bone, brocolli, carrots, cabbage, beef hearts, beef liver and garlic. Wait, she DID eat a dead animal. :P I'll survive. She's happy, I'm happy. I did add her Sojos oatmeal to it. To soften the smell. LOL.
I felt that some of the prices were a bit expensive, but you get pretty large, well established plants. In the end, the price would be the same as the ordering + shipping of plants from online stores, except that you get to pick out the plant yourself, and they tend to have more leaves.
Just read the label. Most of them will say somewhere "anti-mildew" or something to that effect and you don't want that. Just the pure 100% silicone. The brand I have is GE Silicone II W/D supreme. Look for the clear one because some come in different colors. If you're unsure ask whoever works in that department for silicone with no chemical additives in it and they should be able to point you in the right direction.
I loooove sand. I actually just switched back over to gravel though...Unfortunately the sand I chose was too "powdery" and it was always in my water column making it look foggy once I added my Corydoras.I was short of "funds" so instead of buying pool filter sand I found a cheap bag of pea-gravel at my local garden store for 3 dollars for a 30 pound bag. worked lovely.I would love to switch back to sand eventually though. I think it is actually easier to clean. No need to plunge the siphon into the sand...Just hover it above the sand a few inches and make little circular motions. Or you can use a "turkey baster" to suck up and debris that sits on top of the sand. I used my hand every few weeks or so to stir the sand a little so it didn't compact.
I found a mix similar to My Pet Carnivore that's made here in NJ. It's called Healthy Paws. I'm going to go to the pet store that carries it tomorrow and see how she likes it. Thanks for the idea. I never considered I could find a pre mixed raw here!
I looked at the prey model diet, that's pretty much the diet on rawfed. That's what I was going for... whole chickens pieces and organs and bones. She wasn't having it. She LOVES red meat. I balance that out with turkey so she alternates. I wish, wish, wish, I could get her to take organs again. She eats around them.
