    Just a quick one, and apoligies for not posting much lately, Im chocka with commissions right up to Christmas at the moment  :ugly:

    After my little scare at the vets the other week (nurse told me Jake had lost an adult incisor when he hadnt) he now has all 6 adult ones at the front, but still two baby ones intact.  Any ideas how to help them along as I dont want his teeth mishapend.  Will his chicken wings help this along enough do you think?  Just wondered if anyone had any tips.  They havent been there long so I know I still need to give it time  😉

    Tam retained a couple of his baby teeth but they did come out in the end and he has nice straight teeth, the vet will whip them out if necessary but chewing will help 😉

    Hi,

    where supermarket shopping is concerned you can save money by:

    1 – buying frozen instead of fresh

    2 – looking at the ‘reduced’ counters

    3 – using ‘bogof’ or other offers

    Common meats (fresh meat) are:

    Pork – i only get ribs (belly is just meat) if you like pork loins you can buy chops and remove bone for dogs and voila loins !

    Beef – ‘bone in’ beef tends to be on the counter not on shelves
    Turkey – you can get whole “drumsticks” which are huge, take off the meat for eating and use the bone.
    Chicken – wings, skin on thighs are the cheapest cuts – tesco do a 12 wing pack which is very handy.  all british too.
    Lamb – shanks, chops (do as for pork if you like the meat), ribs …

    they also sell … heart, liver, kidneys no idea on price as i dont “do” grim bits – bev has only just got me handling bones !!

    (i shop at tesco so comments relate to where they store meats)

    Bear in mind that except for Morrisons (who do butcher their own meat and do sell bags of ‘clean’ bones) that all the cuts will have meat/fat on them too for human eating.

    Thank you that really helps, I struggle with our own human shopping so that gives me a better idea.  I have bought the turkey legs before for Dante and Amber, could take Jake near on a week to get through one hee hee.  He’s up to 2 chicken wings at a time at the moment, he was in his crate for 45 mins the other day chomping away  :confused:

    Might look into Morrisons butchers see if I can snag anything  😉

    Hi,

    I think like alot of butchers they do all their butchering on one day so my advice is go up to the counter and ask if you cannot see any obvious – if they dont have any ask which day is best 🙂
