Rå bein - Magetrøbbel
Når jeg forer min puddelgutt 5år/25 kg med rå bein/kyllingvinger o.l blir han skikkelig dårlig i mage, samt en del oppkast.
Stopp foringen med rå bein/kyllingvinger. Det er helt klart at din hund ikke skal ha, eller får fo rmye av det du gir ham nå. Rå eller kokt/stekte kyllingvinger MED BEN skal INGEN HUNDER HA! Rå ben av andre typer (margben) KAN være OK - i moderate mengder. Hvis hunden kaster opp, så er det uansett for mye - eller feil på annen måte.
>Andre tips ?
Jeg anbefaller å holde det til trygge, kjente fortyper som er godt utprøvet - helst på din egen hunderase. Les alt du kan komme over om ernæring og foring av hund, og lær deg så mye som mulig om dette før du eksperimenterer for mye.
Husk at hunder IKKE ER ULVER! De ligner ganske riktig, og de har samme TYPE fordøyelsessystem, men de tåler langt fra det samme som ulver gjør. I tillegg så må vi kanskje også vite mer om hva ulver spiser, hvis sammenligningen skal ha noen funksjon.
Kort sagt: Hvis hunden din ikke har det bra på det foret du gir, så kutt det ut. Finn noe annet som fungerer bedre. Det er DIN HUNDS MAGE som bestemmer! (Ingen forprodusent eller anti-for trend).
Se under hvor dere alle kan lære mer om hva ulv egentlig spiser - og at BARF-diskusjonen er like aktuel i USA som i Norge ;) Og HVOR MYE SOM MÅ LÆRES - bare om dietten til ULV! Reisen til USA kommer desverre i tillegg ;)
---------------------------------------------------- SEMINAR OPPORTUNITY: A Day with Dr. David Mech
TOPIC: The Diet and Nutrition of the Wild Wolf from Birth to Death
SPECIAL APPEARANCE: Atka - a 2 year old ambassador Artic wolf
WHEN: Saturday, September 25, 2004, 9:00am to 5:00pm (Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.)
WHERE: South Salem, NY, The Willows Event Facility
SPONSOR: Wolf Conservation Center, South Salem, NY www.nywolf.org/seminar.html
============================== The growing popularity of raw diets for companion carnivores, and a growing mainstream acceptance of the idea that high carbohydrate (grain- based) diets for carnivores may not be species appropriate, have made many people look to the natural diet of the wild wolf for guidance in feeding dogs and captive wild canids.
This seminar will provide a focused, in-depth examination of the diet and nutrition of the wild wolf, from birth through death. While Dr. Mech will not discuss domestic canine diets *at all*, he will cover many topics which will be of interest to anyone feeding a natural diet to dogs. The facts and fictions about wild wolf dietary habits will be highlighted. Some (this is not an all-inclusive listing) of the areas he will cover through discussion, video presentation, and Q & A sessions, are:
DIET OF THE AVERAGE ADULT WOLF: * Average kills per week * Average amount consumed per kill, per wolf * Pieces and parts consumed of a ki! ll - and in what order, if any * Pieces and parts that are not consumed * Amount of bone consumed * Amount of "kill" (protein) variety in a typical wolf pack diet * Frequency of small animal kills vs. large animal kills * Nutrition derived from other sources then prey, if any * Typical feeding patterns in Spring and Summer vs. Fall and Winter * Scavenging as part of the diet - how much, how often, when, under what circumstances * The amount of fiber and the sources, if any, in a typical wild wolf diet
DIET OF THE PREGNANT BITCH: * Changes in the amounts eaten during gestation * Changes in the kinds of food eaten during gestation * If advanced pregnancy prevents them from being efficient hunters in the last two weeks before whelping, does the pack feed them or are they left to fend as best they can
DIET OF THE NURSING BITCH: * Changes in the amounts eaten! in the first few weeks post-whelp * Changes in the kinds of food eaten in the first few weeks post-whelp * Hunting behavior in the first few weeks post-whelp
DIET OF THE NEWBORN/YOUNG WOLF PUP: * Nursed for how long * Nursed how often * Introduced to regurgitated food at what age * Composition of regurgitated food (amount of meat, bone, other foodstuffs) * How often fed regurgitated food in a typical day * Fed regurgitated food until what age * Introduced to non-regurgitated food at what age * Initial "solid" food composition - amount of meat, bone, etc. * How much solid food do they begin eating, and how often * What age are wolf pups normally weaned * Begin to eat at the kill site at what age * Typical amounts eaten at the kill site by a pup * Typical parts/pieces eaten at the kill site by a pup * To what age does the pack insure that youngsters get adequate amounts of food * At what age to they become young ad! ults * Are young adults immediately designated as "low ranking" by the pack * Do low ranking pack members only get kill "leftovers" and thus consume more bone
DIET OF THE ELDERLY WOLF: * At what age is a wolf elderly * Does the pack provide for elderly members who may not be efficient hunters * Does the diet of the elderly wolf change in types of amounts or food eaten
HEALTH AND OTHER DIET-RELATED ISSUES: * Discussion of dental health and evidence, if any, of dental disease, including tooth fractures, tooth wear, etc. * Observation, if any, of wolves suffering from endocrine diseases or non-parasite related skin disease * Frequency of both internal and external parasite-related heath issues * Based on physical observation and/or autopsies, evidence, if any, of death due to dental disease, cancer, organ failure, perforations, bloat, diabetes, IBD, bacterial poisoning, etc. * Stools - typical stool: chan! ges in stool as related to specific food eaten; average size; average consistency; frequency of fecal elimination * If free from human-related injuries/disease, what is the typical lifespan of a wolf
WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS SEMINAR: People feeding raw diets using some foundation of wild canid nutrition Veterinarians who want to learn more about the foundation of raw diets Veterinarians who provide care for captive wild canids Curators / animal care personnel who deal with captive wild canids Anyone making/selling raw diets in any form People interested in learning more about wolves
ABOUT DR. MECH Dr. Mech is acknowledged as one of the world´s leading authorities on wild wolves. He is a senior research scientist for the Department of the Interior and an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul. He has studied wolves on Isle Royale in Minnesota, Canada, Italy, Alaska, Yellowsto! ne and elsewhere since 1958. Dr. Mech has authored several books including "The Wolf: The Ecology and Behavior of an Endangered Species" in 1970, "The Way of the Wolf" in 1991, "The Artic Wolf: Living wiht the Pack" in 1988 and "Wolves of the High Artic" in 1992. His latest book, co- edited with Luigi Boitani, "Wolves: Behavior, Ecology and Conservation", was published in November 2003. Dr. Mech also chairs the IUCN Wolf Specialists Group of the World Conservation Union.
