Thread: Price of pluck

    Price of pluck

    Hi all,
    I have a nine month old GWP, and she is coming on well. I have been feeding her a mixture of heart and lungs from
    deer and rabbit meat. But occasionally my supply's run low, so I enquired at my local butchers for a cost of cattle lungs/heart. priced about 5.00 a pluck, do think that is a fair price?

    Cheers William

    Is is just a meat diet - any bone/bone meal/skin? If it is just meat, you are feeding a diet with the wrong ratio of calcium/phosphorous and this is a predisposing factor to joint problems such as OCD (particularly in a large fast growing dog). She'd be better on a decent commercial diet where the balance is correct. Any of the good makers (ie not supermarket own brand) will be OK.

    No sorry I forgot to add the heart/lung is just a supplement not her main feed I just wanted a good/cheap and reliable source of raw meat. But thought it was slightly over priced

    Cheers Will
