Ok then, there I go!
Well, this now brings up a delima for me. I've been giving additional fish oil this whole time, daily, just a small amount. When I was feeding the first batch of rabbit, from supplier #1, one of the kitties got a small amount of constipation. I was feeding the good quality oil though, the stuff recommended on the Little Big Cat site. But the kitties did so good on it. But now I'm wondering if the guy made my grind as directed! I asked to have the head ground in the mix, to take advantage of the natural oils and whatever else is in there, so I wouldn't have to add the extra fish oil. I had to add it anyway.
So now the meat from supplier #2 I have no doubt is made per my request. The first half of the batch I was just finishing up the remaing amount of the good fish oil, and then this last half I bought the cheaper stuff. They've been itching more this last half of the batch it seems. They were really bad when they were getting the batch with the beef in, but it got better the next batch without it in. I only made one small batch with the beef in though, a weeks worth, and they weren't getting fish oil that week.
I stopped giving the oil to my test subject, Lucy, this last weekend. Her hair is getting more full already, but she still has this greasy feel to her coat, it's just weird. I can't describe it other than to say it's just like human greasy hair. She is itching less though too, so I'm going to stop giving it to everyone. I would imagine it will just take time to get it out of their system if the oil is a contributing factor. What makes me mad is now I really am wondering if supplier #1 even made my mix per my request, or if I just got what was in his freezer at the time.
My order of Hare Today rabbit meat did not get here today, even thought the website said it was a two day transport. This means it will be in route for 3 days! What will this mean as far as the quality of the meat now, will it still be frozen? Or at least saveable?
Oh, also, they refused venison, I tried. Even my one that will eat anything refused it.
