Cyndy: Try the meat market in Wildwood on 301. Tell the owner exactly what you are looking for and I think they will help you. One word of warning, the shop kinda, sorta smells .... a bit like an abattoir. He is real butcher, not just a meat cutter.

Aldi's is good too. I get my grass fed meats in Ald'is

I used to add Omega-3 for my Welshie and it really did help his coat.

What a lucky pup to have such a loving person!

No worries! I wouldn't go the cooked chicken route.

Thanks, Madeline. I'm familiar with the "aroma" as every supermarket in SW France smells similar. I will try them plus Aldi's.

We do add an omega supplement, and it has restored his coat.

I hope things work out well for you CFrance but I have a feeling if the food was $500 a pound that beautiful animal would have it.

What a Great complement for your Vet. Does she accept people as patients? Maybe I'll change!
I think she might take you on, Nucky. Can you bark? ������

We get a large bag of Chicken Leg Quarters at Winn Dixie or Wal-Mart. After boiling and de-boning the chicken we take the bones and grind them in our Vitamix to add the bone-meal to our dogs food.

In my experience, Sav-A-Lot has the cheapest meat around. Have not shopped at the meat market in Wildwood, though.

I feel sorry for your Dog...why? Where can I find the cheapest meat ?... For me treat man's best friend treat him/her like would treat yourself..Publix has strip steak on sale this week $ 8.99lb. Your pet is, after all, he/she is part of your family.

Would you want to eat the " Cheapest"?
Bottom line if only animals/pets could talk.

Come on!
Most dogs would be happy with half rotten road kill given the choice.

I was afraid this thread would eventually turn ugly.


Why would I pay $10 for beef in Publix when I could get it somewhere else less expensively? A dog does not need prime cuts of meat.


I invite you to come around anytime and judge how happy and healthy my dog is.

Thanks, lanabanana. Where is Sav-A-Lot? Is that the one in a strip mall on 301?

Oh, I didn't think of Sam's Club. I'm told that the best source of taurine is dark meat chicken or turkey.


Looks like I have some places to check out. Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions.

I know all the data is not in yet, and my vet recognizes this, but she feels until further studies are completed, why take the chance on a breed that was on the top of the FDA's list to have heart problems. Although he's gone 12 years with no heart issues, I am just playing it safe.



I have several recipes of Dr. Beckers--I like the pup loaf--plus supplements she has recommended. Plus Omegas, and joint supplement. Plus either Kefir or fermented goat's milk. I have one of her books on Kindle.



Thanks for the suggestions. I will check out mercola for sure, and the magazine.
