    Default New Food!

    I'm trying a new food source that my vet told me about. It's a Texas company that specializes in custom meat processing and is going into raw pet food in a big way. They do their own processing and then load up their truck and deliver to different areas once a month. I ordered from them and I'm going to pick up the food today. I'm really hoping this works out. It's much cheaper than the premix I was using and I've been told that it's high quality food. They even have bones and human food. I may try a few of their steaks next time. I'm really excited about this and I hope it works out. The company is Texas Tripe They sell a lot more than just tripe (Thank doG)

    I picked it up today. Interesting couple who were distributing it. The woman was wearing one of those long dark dresses with the little white collar that sort of looked Amish with this little black cap covering her hair and the guy had one of those beards with no mustache. They were very nice and had the order all packaged up and ready to go so the whole transaction took like 5 minutes. I spent longer petting the 2 Great Danes that were walking their humans

    My guys really seemed to like it. But then it is food and they are my dogs otherwise known as the canine vacuums so, of course, they liked it. It had a lot of organ meat in it so it's really stinky just like dogs like! They package it really nicely in little chubs so it's easy to thaw a couple out to use and leave the rest frozen. I'm thinking I'm really going to like this. The meat looks really good and for the money paid it's an excellent deal.

    I won't tell you how many times I had to read this as I thought you were excited as it had human bones and I"m thinking WTH is wrong with her!!!! so much for multi tasking on my part. I may have to see if they work this area. Rocky is having some dental issues (that boy arrived here with bad teeth...at 14 I'm not sure what is in store from him at his dental on the 1st. With that being said I bought a bag of raw for him and he's loving it (they were on raw in the past).

    I've made the multi tasking mistakes like that before. It does shake you up a bit till you re-read.

    They do a San Antonio route where they come down 35 from Dallas area so they might have a pick up point not too far from you. In fact, I just went back and looked and they have a stop in Scherz. That's pretty close to you, isn't it?

    Between Schertz and Cibolo they only have like 5 highway exits and not even like 3 miles apart...pretty much one (shh don't tell Cibolo I said that though). I work in Schertz and my son goes to school in Schertz but we live in Cibolo and both take less then 5 minutes to get too LOL It's exit 173 and I'm exit 176 very very close to me.

    Cool! If you decide to try them and need any help (the website is a bit overwhelming because they have so many items), let me know. My vet helped me decide what to order. The whole process is pretty easy. You can order 10 days ahead of the delivery date (they do sell out of some items so it's good to order early) and pay for it online. Then you receive a confirmation, meet the truck and get your order. They even have a location on their website and on Twitter where you can follow their progress so you know if they are running on time.
