I feed Lucy Blue Buffalo, but am thinking about going into this local pet store that specializes in good quality foods to get their opinion Blue Buffalo is rated okay on the dog food analysis web site, but there is better stuff out there!
Belle is fed Blue Buffalo and it's been the best of all foods I have tried for her. I know there are better foods out there but as picky as she is I'm happy to have her eating and doing very well on it! Vets are always pleased with her weight, coat, and general physical appearence.
I feed Donatello Nature's Recipe Farmstand Selects. It's one of the few cheaper foods that I can find that are "corn" free... Corn syrup, ground corn, whole corn, corn starch, etc.
I also mix in a third of a Cesar's cup. (Doing that gives me three days on one cup of Cesar's.) Anyway, I mix in the Cesar's because he's finicky, picky, and will go days without eating, only to eat half a cup and walk off... I was allowing him to do that, because hey, dogs should eat on their own, when they're hungry, and just eat plain ole' kibble... But after he gained weight coming home, he was losing weight again! Aside from him being perfectly healthy it was just his spoiled self! lol!
Trent is on what his breeder had been feeding him, but this weekend I am going over to buy a bag of Orijen or Taste of the Wild and slowly make a transition. He also gets a raw meaty bone a few times a week.
May I ask why you would feed a couple of "lesser quality" foods and then feed raw? Raw is probably the best we can do for our dogs although most of us can't/won't, myself included. That's like saying I'd feed Purina, Eukanuba and Orijen. From one extreme to the other.
(Milk Bone Biscuits for Small and Medium Size Dogs, 7-Pound) I bought this for my dogs a few months back from walmart online. Unfortunately, I threw away the box as I store dog treats in an airtight container. I decided to put my dog on a diet, so I started breaking up his treats into smaller...
I love my dog very, very much, and I just want what's best for him. Please do not take offense, but I think in my heart I truly think home-made is best for my dog, but I need guidance in the right direction.
I have so many questions, so I'd appreciate it if anyone patient and with enough...
So, Bella has a plethora of problems. The cancer right now is the least of our worries. She also has pancreatitis flare-ups, diabetes and EPI.
With the diabetes she can't have any food with high carbs, starch or sugars.
With pancreatitis it has to be lower in fats.
The EPI requires (in...
So, little puppy is growing very quickly, and the breeder thinks that her pasterns are looking a bit weak!
She said most of the time, this issue resolves itself, but that supplementing with Vitamin C would help.
Anything else I can do? Also, I can't seem to find any info on how Vit C would...
There have been a number of members who are interested in starting to feed a raw diet. They generally have a lot of questions about what a typical raw diet would look like. I think most of us can agree that everyone does it differently, depending on their dog's need. If we can get some good...
