Hi.....Could I please get some opinions on feeding Chicken Mince? Is is preferable to feed it raw or is lightly steamed ok? Am I treating my dogs too much like humans because I would rather feed it cooked? And what about Beef Mince? For some reason I am quite happy to feed Beef raw but not Chicken...... :)

I suppose everyone will have a different opinion pomquest but I am a fan of the Dr Billinghurst raw diet and I would say raw for everything. I suggest you also feed raw chicken wings, even if only the tips to your pom. They have notoriously bad teeth and this will help keep them clean, prevent gingivitis etc...

if your dogs can handle raw, feed raw. if you dogs cant handle raw, dont feed raw. pretty much do whatever works. :) i personally cook my mince as my dog just cant handle raw. hardcore raw feeders would say im doing her a disservice but id rather give her cooked mince than have vomit and diarrhea all over the place.

Feeding raw is preferable because most chicken minces have ground up bone in them and cooked bone is off-limits for dogs. Like Blue Fox, I would recommend the BARF diet.

I don't cook any of my dog's food. She gets raw chicken mince (minced chicken frames) and raw beef mince as well as chicken necks and marrow bones etc.

definately raw..... Cooking the chicken takes all the goodness out of it.. Sometimes if the poms get fussy as they do, I will cook it, but through it, I put some extra biolac, some performace oil, molasses etc, just to put back in what has been 'cooked out'..

But like said above, watch the tiny bones in it :rofl: unless you get the human grade chicken mince.

I buy human grade chicken mince and I give it to my sheltie raw a couple of times a week with his fruit & veg mush. Just treat your meats for your furkids as you would your own and you shouldn't have any probs.

Thanks everyone for your input. I have decided to try the BARF diet as I hear so many good things about it. They had their first meal of the chicken flavoured patties last night and they scoffed it down. A good start for fussy Poms. :rofl:
