Raw Diet Guide

Because Blue Lacys just like Greyhounds can have such large litters, I start my
pregnant bitches on goat’s milk when they are seven or eight weeks along, up to a pint a day, and continue until I wean the puppies. A bitch fed goat’s milk during lactation will not suffer eclampsia or a calcium imbalance, will provide adequate milk even for the largest litter, and will not lose weight or condition herself. A goat breeder is a dog breeder’s best friend.

When considering dog food, it is wise to thoroughly research the ingredients you are putting into your dog’s body. You may choose to feed your dog homemade food, or you may choose to purchase premium quality natural dog foods, or you may do a combination of both. No matter your choice, your dog’s health is well worth the extra expense of better quality foods.
