I start getting paid in September, finally, so finances will be a little better after that. I hope I didn't come off as not willing to spend the money - I'll definitely buy her the meal meats (and anything else) she needs, just got to make sure I have all my bases covered...The other proteins I can get at the health food store are all pretty expensive (to me anyway! I've never really dealt with buying meat like this before so I wouldn't know), so tomorrow...I might buy lamb shoulder and also another protein to have in the freezer when she gets used to the lamb.
As for organs...do I need to have organs from several different proteins as well? I have beef kidney and liver (and heart), I can get beef tongue if I couldn't find the hearts. I still have chicken liver, but I won't know if I can use it again until we try her one more time on chicken, right? I was under the impression that as long as they got their needed 'doses' of liver, another organ, and heart, it didn't matter what animal it came from I'm guessing now that the organs need to come from different animals for more variety?
If she doesn't want more that's fine. Just keep it in the cage with her.
No you didn't come off anything like that. I just know how it is to be tight on money. I don't want you to stress out over prices when we are still in the switching phase.
No you don't have to have different proteins for organs. As long as the organs are secreting organs then she should be fine. I get beef tongue or heart and beef liver and pork kidney those are my organs. Though my little Shelby is really allergic to chicken I have fed her chicken liver or chicken eggs and not had a problem. I beleive it's how they process it that doesn't agree with her tummy. How about Sunday morning you try Piper on an organ meal do half liver and half kidney. If she eats for example two ounces in the morning then give her one ounce liver and one ounce kidney.
