My dog is fed Fromm’s, but I’m debating switching him to raw at least part time.

molokoa:  Just because your dog doesn’t have a sensitive stomach doesn’t mean they should be fed whatever. Just like sure you could eat McDonald’s everyday, but it’s not going to be as good for you as baked chicken breast, broccoli, etc.

Boomer is eating 1 cup of Nature’s Variety Limited Ingredient Lamb and Pea dry food and 1 cup of Nature’s Variety Raw Lamb bites for both breakfast and dinner.  He has food allergies, and he is also 11 years old, so this diet is working best for him.  He has clear beautiful skin, a shiny coat, very healthy poops and good energy for an old man.

I love this diet because his weight is sooo consistent, which is very important for his age.  Every time he goes to the doctor (which has been very often lately because he is getting Adequan injections) his weight is always 74.4 – 75.2 lbs.  Also, he had blood work done last week, and his blood chemistry levels for organ function were the same as they were in 2008, when he has just 3 years old!

If anyone has questions about this food, Adequan arthritis injections or Heska Immunotherapy injections, feel free to PM me.

Earthborn Holisitic Dog Food in the Orange bag is what both our dogs eat! They also love watermelon (no seeds), eggs, and occasional ice cubes 🙂

My dog eats Blue Buffalo. The vet told us recently she wasn’t getting enough fiber in her diet, so we’ve recently added green beans to her meals.

My dogs are fed Pure Balance Limited Ingredient (Turkey/Potato recipe). Shiner, my Australian shepherd mix, has seizures and switching him to a grain free diet has stopped them – entirely. Originally we were on Rachel Ray Zero Grain Turkey/Potato but Rebel, my Pit/Lab mix insisted on eating the same food as his brother and that got a bit spendy. 

Both dogs have beautiful coats – especially Shiner and his long, lusterous coat! – a healthy weight, and good stool. 

 

Currently, both dogs get pill pockets as well (chicken flavor) because Shiner is on antibiotics and Rebel thinks he should get a treat too!

VERY occassionally we give them table-scraps as a treat.

My dog is a very picky eater (unfortunately) So it has been a life long struggle to find a nutritious dog food that he will actually eat. Royal Canin is the only one I’ve found that he seems to like (or at least will tolerate.) And, over the years I’ve tried just about everything…including prescription foods and very expensive foods from specialty shops.

molokoa:  whenever we visit a house with cats we have to race him to the food dish so he doesn’t eat it all! Apparently it’s pretty common for dogs to love cat food – when our dog was in the ICU for a week after a car accident the staff gave him (and the other dogs) cat treats more often than dog treats lol.

Red Paw, which is a higher fat dog food for working dogs/northern breeds. He also gets the following once a week each: 1 raw egg, 1 frozen raw whole herring, 1 raw large bone (normally elk or beef).

leembee:  holy crap that is horrifying haha good for you though for doing all that for your fur baby. There is no way I could ever stomach that lol.

We rotate between Wellness trufood and Wellness toy breed, but mostly stick with the trufood. The trufood has dried green beans in it. They do get a little Wellness wet food mixed in because our oldest dog got into that habit and we havent been able to stop it. We did just recently come across a wet food that is just shredded chicken and carrots/green beans in gravy, so I dont have to add as much which is good. But for snacks they mostly get carrots, peanut butter, and sometimes cheese (my dogs FREAK out for cheese)

Taste of the Wild for both my cats and Pit/Whippet dog. It’s grain-free. And they’re all super healthy with amazing fur. My dog likes to snack on carrots and dental bones. Although, I’ve caught her with other things. She has a bed everywhere and I once saw her pull a slice pizza from out under her bed outside, I haven’t had pizza in weeks (?!?!)..

Hi!  I was feeding Boomer Orijen Six Fish for quite a while, and he LOVED it!  However, I noticed that his Creatinine, BUN and liver levels were increasing while he was on this food.  Soon after I took him off, his levels went back down to normal.  Have you noticed an increase in your dog’s kidney or liver levels?  It may just have happened because Boomer was older (8-9 years old) when he was on this food.  I’m just curious. 🙂

My pug has some stomach issues so it took a while to find a food that worked best for him. He now eats Fromm, the duck and sweet potato formula!

kawood0618:  Hi there! Dahlia has been on Orijen since about 14 weeks of age, and she’s now 2 years old. I haven’t had any issues with her bloodwork up until this point. I’m sure that what works for one dog doesn’t work for another. I’m glad switching the food helped your pup!

Another vote for Nature’s Domain from Costco. Its the best quality you can get for the price.

We leave out a bowl of dry kibble but we also make his food. Either whole wheat pasta with ground turkey, zucchini, carrots, and blueberries. Or chicken, gizzards, rice, hard boiled eggs, and carrots and zucchini. . Or potatoes, sweet potatoes, ground beef, green beans, and apples

My dog is on a raw diet. We buy Bold Organic Raw chicken.. We’ll swap in rabbit every once and awhile as a treat.
