  • What do you feed your dog?

    Trying to decide if I should change.

    Abby weighs 15 lbs and we feed her Cesar dog food with some sliced turkey on it. She also gets Begginí Strips.

      I don't feed my dog any canned or dry food that can be bought at a grocery store and absolutely no treats from the store!!!!! A lot of dogs treats are made in China, and have been recalled because their tainted, etc. Just like our food, I check the label, if it's made in China it doesn't touch my grocery cart! We dehydrate chicken breast slices and make our own jerky for our dog, she loves it. When my son goes hunting we'll also dehydrate duck and goose for treats. My husband deer hunts so we'll make some venison jerky for us and some for the dog.
      Dogfoodadvisor,com rates almost all available canned and dry foods and also gives out safety alerts and recalls.

        Lucy was always grossly overweight and smelled bad. Took her off dried food and the change was amazing. I don't think she could digest the dry food that she inhaled rather than chewed. Changed her over to BBQ chicken and bacon after she rejected just about everything else. Her weight reduced and she smells so much better.

          My chihuahua is the whopping 4 lbs and 17 yrs old. She has maybe 4 teeth left. I give her the canned cat food, and I also get the dry cat food from Aldi, its very tiny pieces so she has no problem eating it. She once ate one of those crazy large Toblerone chocolate bars, I think it was 4 lbs of chocolate. Crusty old dog can eat anything.

            Well, we don't have a dog, but my son & his wife feed their weiner/pug Missy some special organic food from the vet, along with chicken or turkey they cook, treats are dried liver or duck, celery & green beans. Guess she's one healthy puppy!

              We also check to make sure ours is made in the USA. We feed the boys Canidae All Stages. We get it at the pet store, itís what the breeder started them on and we stayed with it. Also, Dentals from the vet, itís hard and crunchy to help keep their teeth clean. Works here.

                Did your vet say your dog should/could eat cat food? I was told by my vet that there is too much protein in cat food and it can be harmful to their liver and kidneys. On the flip side, cats should never eat dog food because there is not enough protein in dog food.

                  I also heard cat food can tear a dogs stomach up. Not sure if thatís true or not?

                      I'm out of the ones that we give our dog to help clean her teeth(Cant remember the name of it now tho!)For snacks she likes Ol' Roy Multi Flavored Biscuits.The vet told DH that the older a dog gets, the less protein they need/ require & it's hard on their digestive tract(especially beef), so DH is changing it up to what the vet suggested.(DH always get her food & snacks.)I haven't had to buy food for our animals since around the time of my cat passing,DH wont let me buy it because of my back & shoulder problems,yes i'm lucky that way!He's very thoughtful.

                            In Montana I needed a prescription. I could get it at the vet's. PetSmart had a section of prescription foods. I could get it there but only with a prescription.
                            Maybe states are different.

                              No, I know cat food is not the best, but she is older than dirt with just a few teeth, I just give her what she likes. I do get this benefull stuff in a pouch thats kind of soft, she like that too.
