Re: Canned Food

A high quality, canned food is great for dogs. I think the reason why it gets a bad rap is because people have been led to believe that kibble helps keep a dog's teeth clean (it doesn't). It really doesn't help with tartar build-up? I feel lost now lol I'd feed canned food more often if it weren't ...

Re: Raw venison??

The only bad thing I can think of is parasites - I don't know what ones though. Deer meat itself isn't bad for the dogs. I like it so much that my mouth sometimes waters when I see a deer - is that bad? :oops: lol Mine does too lol I love getting venison scraps for the dogs- I just put it in a deep...

Re: RAW feeding couple questions

I give my dogs, even the ones who don't eat a raw diet, beef marrow bones every other day. I can't speak for others, but I have had no issues with upset stomachs. Jack had a really bad bout of diarrhea; I fasted him the rest of the day (And gave him a dose of Pepto) and the next morning gave him a s...

Re: General rules for nutrition content in food

I look for protein content of 22% for my lazy dog, and 26% for my more active pup. They are still couch potatos compared to real working dogs, so anything higher than that is likely just turned to fat or nitrogenous wastes anyway. I don't like fat content higher than 15%... I see far too much pancr...

Re: General rules for nutrition content in food

I look for a high protein content (36%+), a high fat content (22%+), and generally for grain-free foods.

Re: Loyalty, Honor, Respect

Welcome :hi Not sure if you're in the area or not, but Pit Bull Awareness Day is coming up and there will be a big event in Tampa. Should take your pretty gal :) The Mid-FL APBT Association is hosting it the 30th, at the Veteran's Memorial Park. It's a good way to meet fellow fanciers. As far as bul...

Re: What do you look for in a rescue....

Pit bull rescues specifically...: -A rather low turn-over rate. I am suspicious of "pit bull" rescues that place multiple dogs every week. -An active involvement in the breed and the community. -Knowledgeable foster homes that don't just warehouse the dog temporarily, but truly acclimate t...

Re: Why do you feed the food you do?

Isaac eats Nature's Recipe because it's cheap, honestly. It's a good mid-range food, and he does well on it. Also, being a Chihuahua... His dietary needs are a bit simpler than my over-active bulldogs. I feed Jack and Howie Life's Abundance because it's affordable and the company ships directly to m...

Re: 4month pup a tad weak

At 4 months, concentrate first on creating a healthy foundation for this dog rather than excessive exercise (It's akin to resistance-training an infant). Don't supplement the dog with protein, vitamins, etc. You can ruin a growing pup by knocking his nutrition off balance. You need to find and feed ...

Bah. Where are you located?
The price of Orijen here is way beyond the price of Canidae. $73 for their largest bag, which I think is 33 pounds?
