Okay, so this morning, I took 2 oz of ground pork and put it into the blender with 1 egg as a treat and I know Pandora loves egg and also 20 ml of water. I sprinkled a little bit of freezedried on top, not much 1 piece per bowl and voila! They are licking it up like no tomorrow!
I'm pretty sure today is an organ or heart day so I have to go home and grab meals for the next few days....
I didn't even think about adding the shell in. As of right now, their stools are a good consistency. My sister and I will be passing by anyways (I think) so I will grab food for the next week or so for them. I know deficiencies take long to form but I want to be consistent so they get used to all their foods
Its fairly good, they sleep a lot together obviously but when they're running, well, they're running. I find that they're really bored of all their toys, I don't know what to do, I spoil them rotten and so I'm trying to find odd object around the house to give them. They just stash them and forget about them.
I also think I'm going to weigh them tonight to see how they've been doing. I'm thinking that Pippa would have lost weight since she ate a lot of sugary treats from her previous owner and was chunky!!! I'm hoping Pandora gained, fingers crossed!
Okay, I didn't get a chance to weigh them last night but will do so today. I also didn't get a chance to go to my apartment and pick up their food but I went this morning and brought ALL of my meat with me They ate flawlessly last night... Which means they ate close to 4 oz each yesterday!
I guess I should re-vamp their schedule at least for this week. So far it has been:
Monday- Mince Pork, Turkey Leg Tuesday-Mince Pork and Egg, Turkey Leg
For the next part of the week it will be...Also note that the twice a day organ/heart is 1oz per meal and most non-bone meals will be supplemented with bone meal powder.
Wednesday-Stewed Beef and Beef Lung, Stewed Beef and Beef Lung Thursday-Pork Heart and Duck Wing, Pork Heart and Duck Wing Friday-Pork Liver and Turkey Leg, Pork Liver and Turkey Leg Saturday-Beef Heart and Stewed Beef, Beef Heart and Stewed Beef Sunday-Pork Kidney and Mince Pork, Pork Kidney and Mince Pork
Next week I will devise a schedule that is more spread out as opposed to having 4 back to back days of organ and heart meals!
***Actually Jackie, after your post I realized that the Pork Kidney on Sunday is not necessary for this week.... hmmm... let me see if I can revamp this to work out well (and less stinky!)
Wednesday-Stewed Beef and Beef Lung, Stewed Beef and Beef Lung Thursday-Pork Heart and Duck Wing, Pork Heart and Duck Wing Friday- Duck Feet and Mince Pork Saturday-Pork Liver and Turkey Leg, Pork Liver and Turkey Leg Sunday-Beef Heat and Stewed Beef, Beef Heart and Stewed Beef
^^^^ There at least now they have 2 days, one rest day and then 2 days... not 4 back to back
Eughhh I know the stools will be bleh! I don't have any canned pumpkin simply because everytime I buy some, it goes rotten, I find it is quite a waste. I tried to freeze it and defrost it but I found this really altered the way it looked I wasn't comfortable with feeding it with their food. Do you have any suggestions as to how I can prevent it from going bad? or any specific tricks that you use?
As for the Turkey Leg, I am chopping the meat off and then I really tenderize and crush the bone like no tomorrow and cut it up into the meat
****Updates... They've both barely eaten 2 oz of 50/50 beef lung and stewed chunks. They're not large fans, I think I will need to start making these into soups for them. Jackie, I recall you posting that you split them over 4 meals. If they're not really eating that much a day how do I make sure they're getting their 2 oz of liver&organ&heart each a week?
I just weighed them. They both have slightly gained, not enough to make a huge difference but I noticed it was different than last time. I weigh them in grams and then convert into lbs online.
Pippa is 1,074 grams or 2.37 lbs.... she was 2.34 lbs a week ago Pandora is 774 grams or 1.71 lbs....she was 1.66 lbs a week ago
Yay! Pandora definitely gained! Pippa looks slimmer but in a good way because apparently she slightly gained as well.
They ate all of their beef lung and chunks last night actually so they did eat about 4 oz of food each. I think I have just been judging their eating habits based on a couple of hours but I notice by the time the 12 hour mark hits, they have eaten all of it, or a couple of pieces left.
They seem more eager to eat everytime I bring food up. Pandora is the first to look into the bowl now! Although I must say Pippa is always the more eager one to try the food itself.
