Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So with the stupid covid 19 i procrastinated dog food. Just checked the pass and its a blizzard at the moment up there. In the event my dogs end up with hamburger or porkchops how much should i actually give them. I dont want them to over eat and get sick. Everyone got breakfast this am its dinner tonight and tomorrow and monday am i may need a substitute. Dog store isnt open in sunday and i cant find food they will eat on this side of the pass

Make a mix of rice and hamburger, maybe some carrots and peas, figure 1/3 meat. Give about same portion, cup wise as they usually get. My guys food is 406 calories per cup, 30 percent protein and 18 % fat, by weight I'm assuming, maybe calories. They reach eat 2/3 cup twice a day. A few days isn't going to mess them up.

In the raw feeding world we feed 2-3% of body weight. 50 pound dog would get 1 pound of meat/mix for a 2% rate. Pork is really rich. Work up to it or you may give your dogs the runs if you feed too much too fast of it if they aren't used to getting it.
