Taste of the Wild. It’s grain free.
Taste of the Wild. It’s grain free.
We feed ours a raw diet – chicken bodies, beef heart, a little beef liver and kidney, occasionally they get an egg but they are picky and don’t eat the shell haha. I also give them fish oil capsules everyday and they get veggies as treats or sometimes store bought treats.
We also give our dog taste of the wild. He’s extremely picky with a sensitive stomach so we have to bounce between flavors of the same brand. Fiance hates begging dogs, so our dog never gets cooked people food. The only exception is when the dog is sick and needs chicken and nice (which is very rare). I’ll sometimes put cheese, peanut butter, or olive oil in his food!
We do Natural Balance. For treats, carrots, blue buffalo treats, or greek yogurt/peanut butter in a kong. I gave him a blue berry for the first time the other day and he wasnt sure what to do with it. He LOVES cheese but rarely, rarely, rarely gets it.
I’ve switched his food numerous times during the almost 4 years I’ve had him – he gets bored and then refuses to eat – little jerk! 🙂 I ended up on NB because that’s what my parents feed their dog so I dont have to bring any food along when they dog sit 🙂
Pioneer Naturals Grain Free dry food…I think it might be hard to find, they sell it at a dog boutique a few minutes from my house or I think you can order it online. We used to feed her Nutro Ultra, and switched her after reading reviews. Pioneer is awesome–her coat is super shiny, and she’s very healthy. It’s expensive (about $50-$65 for a 30lb bag depending on the primary protien), but I think it’s worth it to try and keep her healthy. Plus, I’ve noticed since it’s protien and nutrient dense that my dog can get away with eating smaller quantities versus foods we have given her in the past that have more filler ingredients.
We do dry Nutro puppy with 1/3 of a can of Nutro wet at each meal. Now that he’s a year old we will be weaning him off of the wet food.
Yeah… so my dog eats Purina One from Walmart – the lamb/rice formula. He is the pickiest eater in the world unless it’s another dog’s food. Really helped cut down the farts, though, which could kill you if you were too close. He also gets treats on the side, like the parts of the avocado that have gone brown, very light drippings from the chicken or other meat that is about to go south before we can finish it. He also particularly enjoys eating skulls, which you’d think wouldn’t be a problem because where do those come from, but there you are – our yard is full of bones we have to watch out for so he doesn’t do some damage.
Another vote for Taste of the Wild. Our 2 girls eat the salmon variety. We also do pureed pumpkin and veggies (carrots and green beans) as treats as well as generic dog cookies.
My boys eat Honest Kitchen for breakfast and raw for dinner. I make my own raw with kelp, fruit, vegetables and supplements. I also do meal replacement bones like raw necks, trachea, wings, lamb/pig legs and elk/bison bones.
Dry food is Earthborn Holistic Meadow Feast (bison), my boxer can’t eat dry food with chicken as the main protein for some reason. Wet food is beef from Wellness (they get it frozen in a kong as a treat). We also supplement with pureed carrots/green beans with coconut oil and yogurt. Treats are usually dried liver, although I’ll make sweet potato or peanut butter treats for them once in while. My labradoodle also LOVES bananas.
mus1ca1xo: we feed him Nature’s Domain salmon and sweet potato food from Costco. When we adopted him he was on Blue Buffalo puppy so we stuck with it until it started giving him diarrhea (maybe they changed the formula?). We moved to Wellness puppy and that was fine but then it was time for adult food. We decided to give the Costco stuff a try since we’d heard good reviews with the intention of switching to the premium stuff if he didn’t do well with it. We lucked out – his coat is soft and shiny and his stomach hasn’t had any issues! And for $34 for a 35 pound bag it’s a much better price considering how much he eats (he’s 75 pounds).
His “treats” are primarily cucumbers and carrots. He goes NUTS for cucumbers!
I usually feed my pup Wellness Puppy Food, but the Petsmart near me stopped carrying the really big bags of it and it’s not cost effective to get the smaller ones. I bought a giant bag of Blue Buffalo, but now he just won’t eat it. He’ll eat eventually, but I may just have to end up buying the smaller bags again.
Both of my mom’s dogs had gastritis from cheap dog food, so I try to feed him the good stuff.
