I wanted to ask you about my dog. What about this flea stuff I was putting on every month, and the heartworm stuff.

Cause I saw a man whose dog died of heartworm when I lived in Florida. He didn't give him the heartworm thing and the dog died.

[Aajonus]

That's probably what killed him.

A lot of these vets will say, "Oh, your dog died of heartworm". And they didn't.

[Attendee]

So, don't give 'em heartworm, don't give 'em flee stuff.?

[Aajonus]

That's all toxic stuff.

If you feed 'em right, they don't have flees.

[Attendee]

Okay. So much of the protein should I give him each day? He's 55 pounds.

[Aajonus]

You've got several dogs?

[Attendee]

One dog.

[Aajonus]

One dog. He needs about a pound of meat a day if he's indoors.

[Attendee]

Well, I take him for a walk.

[Aajonus]

That's nothing. He lives out in the backyard and he runs around all the time.

[Attendee]

He's like an old dog, he doesn't run, he walks.

[Aajonus]

A very sedentary dog. Pound a day will be fine.

[Attendee]

And that will be all his nutrients?

[Aajonus]

Well, no, you need to give him a little butter and egg once in a while. But he's gonna need a lot of bones.

[Attendee]

What kind of bones?

[Aajonus]

Chicken.

[Attendee]

I always thought chicken bones splinter.

[Aajonus]

Yes, if they're cooked. They turn brittle and then the acids don't melt it.

All dogs eat all bones in the wild, that's what they live on. They eat more bones than anything else.

[Attendee]

So, raw bones. So, I have to go to a butcher and get bones.

[Aajonus]

Or you get chicken parts with the bones in them.

[Attendee]

And those bones will not splinter.

[Attendee #2]

Get a whole chicken and take out the breast for yourself and give the bones for your dogs.

[Aajonus]

That's what I used to, that's what I feed the coyotes. I eat the legs, they get the breast.

I give them the neck and all that other stuff.
