  2. Peanut Butter OK for Dogs? Substitutes?

  5. Feeding Raw - where to start?

    Dog Food Forum
    I'm thinking about putting my dog (2 year old cattle dog mix) on a raw food diet. The more research I do into dog food and dog nutrition I am less and less comfortable feeding commercial dog food. So I am trying to get more information on feeding raw/ feeding homemade raw and am wondering if...
  6. Learning Dog Nutrition, Advice and Questions Welcome

    Dog Food Forum
    I am very interested in dog nutrition. I have taken the book “Better Food For Dogs” (by David Bastin, Jennifer Ashton and Dr. Grant Nixon, D.V.M.) out from the library many times now and I got to say that it is a good read :) I learned a lot from it. They have a list of food that is toxic to...

    So... over a period of time now I've come to the realization that kibble isn't doing it for Valentino (1 1/2 y/o bc/aussie) He's got SERIOUS gas issues and I've switched him slowly to 5 different kibbles since I got him to try and solve the issue. He came to me on a shelter diet, the vet and...
  11. Do dogs go through menopaws or something like it?

    Dog Health Questions
    I recently acquired a 6 year old English Mastiff in my rescue. She is not spayed, but I was told she hasn't been in heat for almost a year. Of course, she wasn't on a very nutritious diet and I think that may have contributed to that. The puppy mill basically threw her away because she wasn't...
