Re: Dog food question

Everyones opinion is going to be different, but I would buy another bag of blue. If it all gets eaten up really well, then it would be worth it to take a loss on the food than to try and make your dog eat some food it really doesnt like. If it would make you feel any better donate the rest of the fo...

That's glad to hear. The muscle tone loss could be from switching from a 30/20 food to a 26/18 food. But I do like the byproduct grain free food because of the ingredients and that it has glucosamine and condronamin (sp) in it. Omega 3 and 6, flax seed oil and yucca extract in it. I guess I will hav...

Do better? How, digestively, or coat-wise? Their coats were a little shinier, but the main thing is that they kept their stamina longer while hunting in the. woods and kept their weight on better. They are loosing a little bit of their muscle tone and I am having to feed them more on the by-product...

corn is higher in protein and therefore more likely to cause food allergies. True food allergies are rare in dogs and generally not a concern. Both are highly digestable and excellent ingredients when fed as a whole ground ingredient in appropriate proportions to other sources of protein, fat, carb...

Corn -vs- Rice

I have been asking every dog owner I know and cannot find any answer. Which is worse corn meal or ground corn? And my second question is what would you rather feed your dog: corn or rice? The food my dogs devaour (sp) and love has corn in it but the natural lines my supplier carries are all anti-cor...

I prefer the 2" because I feel like there is less pressure per sq. in. Kind of like putting a fishing line around your neck and then trying a 5/8" braided rope and see which feels better. All I know is 2 things: get the collar from Collarmania and the lead from Ella's lead. Mine is great a...

Some people may think its kinda cruel, but you can get a low voltage shock wire system and put up the insolators and put the wire up either at the bottom of the fence or the top (depending on if you have a digger or a jumper). Once the dog figures out what it is a few times they wont even get near i...

How did you find out that TOTW was part of Diamond foods? I am just curious, because my local supply sells alot of Diamond and Black Gold foods. They also sell the TOTW. It makes you wonder if they put the same food in all the bags :oops: . I want to believe them but then look at how people market s...
