Pet mince

By Watson 9 May 2012 48

Does anyone know of a butcher in North Canberra selling good quality pet mince?

I tried the Dickson butcher, but for some reason neither my dog nor my cat would touch their pet mince, and they are not particularly fussy.

What’s Your opinion?

Yeah. Got to Andy’s. Great pet mince but definitely recommend them for their meat, first class, not the cheapest in town, but good meat, and great friendly service.

We got a bag of good stuff on Sunday from one of the butchers in Belco fresh food market.

I am not deliberately bumping this post, but just reporting on my “research” on this.

Today I checked out Belco markets. The Asian chicken shop sells chicken pet mince for $2.80 for 2 kilos, but it’s only available from Wed arvo. And yes, at that price, maybe they do put cat in it. Still, I’ll go back to get some later this week.

Only one of the butchers there had red meat pet mince. The one at the end – forget what it’s called. $3 a kilo, but the boy there was a bit vague about what was in it and mentioned breadcrumbs and kidney (which my dog hates) amongst other things. Sounded like it was mainly offal actually…

And the chicken mince at the “pet store in that loop street opposite Camping world” is $3 a kilo, but is frozen.

Finding it hard to get anywhere lately, but I did buy some pet mince from the Lyneham butcher. I asked what’s in it and apparently it is heart, liver and off-cuts, which is perfect. But it does cost $6 a kilo, which is a tad pricey for essentially a waste product. So I will check out some others too when I finally get round to it.

I thought you shouldn’t feed dogs chicken bones. Has that changed now ?

I believe it’s cooked chicken bones that you don’t give them.

I use human consumption Kangaroo Mince with cooked rice, mixed vegetables and sardines – My dogs love it – They have some dry food a few times a week and bones weekly.

Reason why I knew he was bitten was the snake was so big and he went in after him straight away I saved his life.
