As a general rule, its best to try to feed a food that costs more than cat litter... what could possibly be healthy if the food is cheaper than dirt?

If there is NO WAY that you can change ANYTHING about the care and management of your dogs then I guess you either are --or need to get-- happy with the status quo.

If you are willing to make waves and do the difficult thing, which is changing human behaviors, there have already been anazing resources and suggestions posted in your various threads. Plus some simple links and suggestions for Googling educational material.

How old are you? By 14 I was working a paper route and supporting the majority of the care for my animals (Greyhound and about 40+ chinchillas) with very little help from my parents... Are you old enough to get a paperoute and then you can provide for your animals?

By 16 I was working at the local grocery store, along with a paper route :)

I think she meant generally speaking not that you specifically had to get a paper route.

For example: my first jobs were being a part time secretary for a Driver's Ed School and working part-time lifeguarding and teaching swimming lessons. I used the money for horse stuff.

Anyway. If you've decided there is NO WAY and it's NOT POSSIBLE to change anything then I guess you'll have to work on becoming more zen and at peace with the current situation until you feel more able to change it. I dunno. Otherwise people here will continue to try to help, but if all their suggestions and effort and ideas get shot down, then people will feel irritated.

you could go for a cleaning job, like cleaning local hotelrooms or highschool classrooms, i did when i was your age and it made sure i had the money to take care of all my animals 2 dogs,2 birds,2 guenea pigs,2 rabbits.

If your parents are really stubborn about the food i would just make sure you give them some more supplements, like some type of oil, some fruit and veggies, some rice and perhaps the older dogs something to help with their joints.

Where do your dogs live inside the house or outside?

I don't know where you live but i would see if heartworm preventative is necessary, here in europe we don't have them but you in the US do. What kind of shelter do the dogs have when they are outside? doghouse?
