I have been doing some research on dog foods over the last few days, mainly because one of our dogs had a seizure Saturday night, which has caused me to want to look up the best foods to feed our dogs. (Not saying the seizure and food were necessarily related...just kind of scared me and made me want to give my dogs the healthiest possible...) We usually feed them Nutro, which I have read is a good one. But there seem to be a lot of articles touting homecooked food as the best and most healthy for dogs. Since I don't mind cooking their food, and I want to give them the healthiest food possible, I was wondering if anyone had any recipes for a good dog food. I have seen a few while browsing on the internet that include rice, a meat, and vegetables. Just wondering if anyone had anything else to add? Anything especially good for dogs, or something I should avoid? Thanks in advance!
I personally like to feed California Natural for kibble in the morning, and Nature's Variety raw patties in the evening.
I like California Natural because it is a good holistic food and vey easy on sensitive dog's tummy , and the Nature's Variety raw because it has all the nutrients needed in a raw diet.
There are many different good all natural and holistic kibble, a few you can also choose from are Innova, Merrick, and Wellness. There is a good sticky from this website from Wiley grading foods, and what is good, and what is bad.
Animals, what animals? My children just have alot of hair!
I make my own also as i usualy use barley,carrots,ground chicken or turkey and you can also use ground lamb and i also will use rice instead of barley and use carrots and ground meat,also i cook up part of a sweet potato and mix that in as they love sweet potato's and they also eat yogurt.mine do well on homemade food as they have been eating it almost a year now and they have been healthy.there are some great sites on the net that have good recipes depending what your dog will eat.
This is my one pug noah,my other rescue,he is blind and deaf but a love.
