Kaia(who is a 40 pound Boxer mix) gets one cup in the AM and half a cup in the PM.

Tank(who is an 80 pound Great Pyrenees/Lab mix) gets one and half cup in the AM and one cup in the PM.

Re: California Natural vs. Fromm

I currently feed my dogs Fromm Four Star(I have for two years) and they have done wonderful on it. Firm poops, shiny coats, and all around very healthy. It is the only food Charlotte(she has skin and digestive issues) does well on. I can not really think of anything bad about.

Re: Tick prevention

Frontline Plus or K9 Advantix 2 seem to work the best for me when it comes to ticks. Living out in the country we have ticks and fleas really bad so flea and tick prevention is a must for my dogs.

What type of dog food/diet do you feed your dogs?

I was wondering out of curiosity what do you feed your dogs? I currently feed Tank, Charlotte and Kaia Fromm Four Star Grain Free Game Bird recipe. They also get fish oil and glucosamine everyday and Vitamin E every other day. Charlotte and Kaia have been on Fromm Four Star for a year now and they a...

Re: Thinkin' bout switchin' from Evo to Orijen

Fromm is what I feed my dogs and they are doing wonderful on it! It really just depends on your dog and what food works best for them. I went though several different brands of dog foods until I found what worked best for my dogs which was Fromm.

Re: I dont know how you do it... But I know why.

I applauded anyone who can volunteer at a shelter that euthanizes their animals because I just could not do it. I know it is selfish but, I could not deal with getting attached to a dog and then it being put to sleep. I would cry everyday. I volunteered at the Humane Society of Memphis(which they ar...

Re: Nature's Variety (or TOTW)

It really just depends on the dog and trying different dog foods and see what works best for YOUR dog. Every dog is different and some brands of dog foods work better for certain dogs than for others. :) We had to try out several different dog foods until we found a food that agreed with Charlotte o...

Re: Favorite Names that are NOT over used!

I really like the name Kovu or Fendi for a dog(particularly a Bullmastiff ;) ). I have only ever met one dog named Fendi(which was at the Humane Society) and never met a dog named Kovu.

Re: Shelters: ALTER YOUR DOGS before adopting!

The shelter I adopted Tank from in Horn Lake, MS does nothing with their dogs they adopt out. They are not wormed, vaccinated, spayed/neutered or anything. The real crappy thing is that TONS of Pit bulls are taken in by that shelter and adopt out unaltered and they will basically just adopt out to a...

Re: Names I'd like to never hear again*

The people at the Humane Society I used to volunteer at come up with the most crazy names for the dogs there and sometimes I am like "Are you serious?". Here are a few that I dislike and wish to never hear again: Zippo(for a dog that had been burned...) Chimpo Scrimp Hello Kitty Lady Gaga ...

Re: Feeding Raw

My dogs would LOVE whole prey like rabbits or guinea pigs from that site! I might consider getting them some of those someday. I think I could feed something like that as long as I just separate my self from the fact that I once owned both of those types of animals as pets and that it is something t...

Re: Saying hello and asking for advice

Welcome to the PBF! x2 to what everyone else said. No more toys or anything that triggers him to want to act aggressive towards the other dogs need to be out when he is around other dogs. If you can not trust other people to do that than he does not need to be around other dogs with them. Just a rem...

Re: Natural Food vs. "Major" Brand vs. Raw

We feed Fromm dog food(which they are doing wonderful on) right now to our dogs but we fed RAW to them for awhile. It took me 3 years of research and more research before I felt like I was ready to feed RAW. The RAW Diet really helped our dachshund Buddy who is paralyzed from the waist down. His ski...

Re: Nutritional value/safey of cheaper cuts of meat ?

If you are just starting out feeding your dog raw, start with chicken first and do that for a little while so that they get used to one meat source. You start with Pork or start mixing it in too soon and you are going to have a dog with watery diarrhea. Also start out slowly on the organ meat. I am ...
