Hi folks ,
I'm working an EI young no8 mincer & think it's great for the venison ..

But I feed the dog RAW & she does very well on it

I have access to rabbits & was wondering does anyone mince rabbit carcasses whole / or semi broken down but with bone included

If so recommendations on what
mincer(s)??
Cheers
Paul

I would get a cheap manual cast iron mincer from Lakeland or similar to do this. The biggest problem is getting the bone small enough to travel down the screw before it gets to the plates and you risk damaging the plates by putting bone through it.

Wild animals do not get minced rabbit! Crunching raw bones is all part of the BARF (Bones And Raw Food) diet. Bones keep teeth clean!

Indeed!
When i was running the whippets on rabbits 3 or 4 nights a week they were fed exclusively on raw rabbit......and they excelled on it! The diet is hard to beat!
Just make sure your worming programme is is up to date and regular.
I just used to paunch, skin and quarter the rabbits.
If your keen on feeding barf then I would just do the same. Yes there are risks (choking on bones etc) but they are small and I would just supervise feed time

Paul....

Our spaniel gets them quartered.....bones and all. She'll happily munch her way through the bones of a deer carcass, vertebrae, pelvis and all if it is given in "meal" sized chunks. Also whole uncooked chicken carcasses, wings and thighs.....come to think of it that is the answer to your question....One 3 yr old springer spaniel mincing machine!

Hope you are well!

Our little Springers have pheasant legs or thighs, bones and all, once or twice a week as the juicy bit on top of their biscuits. They have any of the uncooked bones from deer apart from the leg bones. Their poo comes out a bit like concrete sometimes, but I am sure it is good for cleaning out the anal glands!

I have 4 dogs all of which have been brought up and fed raw meat and bones ,one of the gsp's is now 17.5 years old and the vet has said he has never seen teeth so good ,I also boil up all the veg peelings and household scraps including Friday night Chinese ,Indian and mix this through with some biscuit as a treat at weekends.
They also get deer carcass .
When I got my first GSP from Birkenwald (Breeder) the old lady owner only fed her dogs on sheep/chicken carcasses and she turned out some great dogs

If you are feeding rabbits and have a good enough supply, freeze them for 21 days or more and you won't need to worm the dog too often.
I've fed all kinds of raw carcasses and found that turkey carcasses are the hardest for the dog to pass. Rabbit skins are ok here and there but too much is hard for them to digest. I've never had a dog choke yet on raw either.
