I feed raw, also.

Turkey necks and chicken backs - along with organs and also whole fish. I supplement per veterinarian directions.

They're fed twice a day and thrive on it.

Used to feed Dog Purina. He had problems with constant itching and chewing his tail. I bit the bullet and tried Taste Of The Wild. H eats less,shits less and his coat gleams and is very soft. Cost $50 a month. No problem. He depends on me to take care of him and if I violate that trust I don't deserve his adoration. And the goofy mutt adores me for some reason.

Innova Red Meat and then switched to Salmon when they came out with it. It's expensive, but you feed alot less than other brands and less pooop. All that corn that is in cheap food just passes through. Check foods here.

acanna here too. Feed less of it than the cheap crap thats mostly filler. Nutro is about the lowest I would go on the mass-produced stuff.

Also very particular about treats now after knowing a few people who had sick dogs from the dehydrated chicken treats

Whatever he can get out of the freezer by himself.:loll

Seriously, I tried various kibbles, Dick Van Pattens Naturals, Pinnalce, but there were always some digestion issues. He had a bad reaction to a rabies shot and his testicles blew up to the size of softballs at age four, so we had emergency surgery to neuter him. He put on thirty pounds, and it was not pretty. I just started cooking for him, chicken breasts, frozen, from Trader Joes, with half a can of peas. When I get meat cheap, I cook that too. Hey, he is my best friend and deserves the best! Anyway, he lost and kept off all of the thirty pounds he gained, his energy is great, NO MORE DIGESTION issues (vomiting, diarrhea) which I am sure was due to the kibble. I add vitamins and glucosamine to his food, and overall, it is probably about $40 more a month to feed him this way. Well worth it to me. And him!

OH, yeah, I forgot about the itching and dry skin from the kibble. Plus, a friend had a dog die from food with the Chinese additives, another push to cook for my dog.

I'd do RAW if work travel wasn't such an issue (copout), we have a very active Boxer who does well on Orijen Regional Red. The ingredients are key to a health dog.

I don't get that shit. I can't for the life of me talk my neighbor out of free range feeding his two Bull Terriers 300 lb. bags of $25 dog food. Yet he still wonders why they chew the shit out of their paws, tails, legs, have terrible allergies, dry skin, over weight etc. etc.

Trader Joes Lamb and rice or Chicken and rice dry dog food.



anything else and his ass is ultra-toxic, not to mention he pukes up most anything 'other' he gets. boxers are very delicate stomachs. His coat is gloriously shiny.

Sam's Rotisserie Chicken, meat & skin pulled off the bone.

Seriously.

We rescued a lab-borzoi mix that had too many skin issues + numerous allergies. Possibly a puppy farm escapee; but without a doubt the best dog we've ever had.

We tried too many canned & bagged foods from supermarkets, pet stores, and the vet.

Don't recall how we started on this, but it's incredibly economical - a $4.99 bird is good for 6-8 meals, and his skin has cleared up, coat is better, eyes are clearer. Can't even blame him for farting anymore. Three months & going strong. Vet checked him out last week, vitals and blood work are clear. Go figure.
