Would you feed your dog pet mince?

4 posts in this topic

Hey, i have bought a bag of pet mince from woolies yesterday because i have a fussy puppy. She is a 5 month old bull mastiff, and im just wondering if it is okay to feed her raw pet mince say twice a week just to supplement her on the days she refuses to eat anything at all?

Not a fan of pet mince as I think the standards are lower. I buy mince for human consumption and feed raw daily.

I buy pet mince from my butcher as it contains minced chicken frames ,hearts, livers   ..much more of what a pup needs than meat minced for human use ..if intended as a meal ... I also feed a puppy kibble , and large meaty bones .

Pet mince is often okay but there can be a some variety in the quality ... there are companies in Victoria around that may suit your needs - www.tuckertub.com.au - deliver most areas and www.bestforpets.net.au - deliver in the north central area.... I have bought mince from both of these and been very happy with the quality. 

I am a full raw feeder, changed over to raw 10 years ago and wean my pups from 3 weeks of age onto raw... we don't use kibble at all... instead we follow the Vets All Natural system.. you can learn more about this on www.vetsallnatural.com.au... we also feed bones, yoghurt and sardines a few times a week.
