Yes. To much bone in it. Good feed but they need a break from it every couple of days imo 

I've always tried to feed a varied diet, meat bone offal along with dry and veg. A lad I know fed mainly chicken backs to his dogs and they seemed to do ok.

Dry nuts are no good for any dog, nevermind a working dog ..it just runs through them. I always feed raw flesh, all chicken & turkey, mainly minced carcasses/sometimes feet. This includes the skin, flesh, bone and marrow. The hunt club had a lab research wether this provided all the necessary nutrition required and it did. Never had a problem with it. Beef is hard to beat to put a back on a dog. A long hard dig takes a lot out of a dog, nevermind a long hard season....

Yep, beef is best of the lot. Used to be with a 3 day a week pack. When the "mad cow disease" scare came in the ministry vet watched over them making sure only hind quarters were fed. Hounds fell apart. It was only when the vet f****d off they went back to fore quarters and hounds got their backs back.

When you say finger blasting are you talking about using your finger to irritate the bowel and make the dog shit ?????

I've used a piece of straw and a biro on  dogs in the past and walked them with it in them to make them shit. Both times it was to get the last few ounces off the dog.

Would often use a cotton bud and walk them with it stuck up there to get them to completely empty when i kept bulldogs.

I'm not surprised with all those dry biscuits stuck in there.

The problem with feeding to much protein to a pup is that bone growth can be to quick for the calcium to keep up and the dog can have hollow spots. These will cause a weakness and are painful but are easily cured.

Would bone meal help that?
