Re: Nature's Variety (or TOTW)

I am going to go through and read all the posts on the food! I haven't had any free time but I had him at the vet and his protein:creatinine ratio test came back as a .1 and they say they like to see it below .5 so he is perfect! I am going to read through the rest of the posts later today, hopefull...

Nature's Variety (or TOTW)

Just curious - I am feeling like a cereal food switcher. :oops: I started Chaos out on Science Diet as a puppy. I started educating myself and read a lot about how the "natural" foods are better. I decided to stop by the local pet store that caters to this market and they told me I should ...

Excess Protein in Urine

So my lovely dog started peeing and pooping in the house this past weekend (I was away and he was with my parents) and I thought it was behavioral. He also pooped so then I was leaning more towards behavioral. I figured I would get his urine checked to be sure it wasn't a UTI and he was due for his ...

Re: Feeding Raw

Do you think it is a bad approach to feed a kibble diet (I do not trust myself to provide a healthy, balanced diet for my dog at this point) and throw in some raw here and there? Like I said, two or three nights a week throwing in some chicken backs/legs or other meats I can get my hands on. I will ...

Re: Merrick Pet Care's Before Grain Food

Hmm! Maybe I will consider it! Just switched them to TOTW so I will see how they do on that first!

Thanks!

Re: Feeding Raw

Well I don't think I could ever do the prey model - especially the rabbits! But tonight we are throwing in some chicken backs for our dogs for the first time. :)

Merrick Pet Care's Before Grain Food

We just switched our dogs over to Taste of the Wild and when we went to the Pet Store today there was a lady handing out information and free samples of BG (Before Grain). Dog Food Analysis or whatever the site is gave it 5 stars. What do you guys think of this food? How is it when compared to other...

Re: Feeding Raw

What are the benefits of BARF (I am assuming is the eggs/fruits/milks etc) vs. the raw vs. the prey?

Raw I am meaning like chicken legs, and individual parts.

Prey being whole parts (legs, heads, etc).

Or if you prefer one of the other - why?

Re: Feeding Raw

Vin, I had a foster dog that just didn't get eating the whole rabbit thing...so we ended up chopping it into chunks, he ate the crap out of the heads. :huh?: He was a strange creature. The rest of the dogs generally start at the head and grind their way down. As far as freezing goes, to be honest, ...

Re: Feeding Raw

Wow what a great idea for a thread! I am SUPER interested in going raw but a little nervous in that I want to be sure I am providing a good, well balanced diet for my boy. I am going to start by sticking with Taste of the Wild kibble and throwing in a chicken bone here and there. Lilangel, if you do...

Re: Wysong Dog Food

But you would if you could? I am thinking it is too expensive for me (I already spend a fortune on my dang pets). I will probably stick with TOTW! LOL

Re: Wysong Dog Food

Oh nice maybe I will check into Wysong! LOL And switch my horse to it too while I'm at it!

We do feed the ferret one - I will see about the cat food. I know they also have a dog/cat mixed food which is extremely odd to me.

Wysong Dog Food

My mom is really interested in dog nutrition now too! We feed our ferrets Wysong and it is amazing - they smell great (seriously) and they just seem so healthy. She was super excited to find their raw line of food for dogs. Specifically: http://www.wysong.net/products/archetype-raw-dog-cat-food.php"...
