Advice from Munsterlander Rescue

General Advice
Rescue does not just take dogs in for rehoming. We are also here to offer help and advice to troubled Munster owners. We appreciate that a Munster who is dearly loved can also pose a problem to his owner and family. We are happy to lend a sympathetic ear, and advise you on any problem. The sooner you seek help with a problem the better. No genuine plea for help is ever ignored.

Dietary problems

A lot of dogs have been coming in with dietary problems, we are including some information of the diet we recommend for Rescues.

We follow the BARF diet (our version) which can be found in the book “The BARF Diet” by Dr. Ian Billinghurst, B.V.Sc (Hons), B.Sc.Agr.Dip Ed. “Raw Feeding for Dogs and Cats Using Evolutionary Principles”.

We recommend using Wholebake Natural Choice biscuit which is a holistic product and is licensed by the British Association of Holistic Nutrition and Medicine. For nearest stockists, contact Natural Choice Limited in Bridgwater, Somerset. Telephone 01278 652184. Email: info@holisticfeeds.com. Feeding guide – give as one third of the total volume of food. Alternatively, because we know the above is not a cheap option, you can use a plain wholemeal biscuit, i.e. Laughing Dog but which has NO ADDITIVES.

Amongst other things we feed vegetables and fruit, raw chicken wings or carcass and mince (chicken, beef, lamb etc.) natural yoghurt, cottage cheese, pilchards/sardines, honey and eggs. In addition we use salmon oil and garlic oil.

All of our Rescue dogs go out with the diet sheet – suggested feeding programme and a supply of food to last them a couple of days whilst the new owners acclimatise themselves to the new regime. It sounds complicated and may worry some people initially, but it very quickly becomes second nature.
