Dog Owners - What are you feeding?
 
Come.. let's share share what we feed our dogs.

My girls... one had mast cell removed... so no histamine. Another allergy to grains (inc barley) - so no grains. No processed Chicken in their diet (by order of yours truely)

Currently on Acana Duck & Bartlett pear
Sometimes will switch to Go or Golden Harvest and at times Ziwipeak

I largi old school. No supplements. If the coat shows changes, it simply means something wrong with the dog or the diet or the weather. :p

My black one.. within 1-2 day you can tell the quality of the food from the amt of fur shed, within 1 week can tell from difference in coat.

I feed pig tendons (those dried ones) as treats for them to chew/brush teeth. Full of natural collagen!

My shepherd was initially on Orijen Six Fish, but now switched to Taste of the Wild, the fish one.

eukanuba.... I fed lamb and rice once upon a time..

the high QUANTITY poo STINKS........ and dog gain weight fast!

Usually I based on a few things

1. Ingredients - The list of stuff my girls dun eat due to allergy or histamine stuff..
2. Amt of poop - the more means more fillers/undigested by the body
3. Texture of poop - Yes.. I'm the type of disgusting owners tat pick poop and can have lunch/dinner wif my doggy friends and we have poop discussion.
4. Amt of shedding - Needless to say.. both my girls sheds. But on some brands... they tend to shed more
5. Fur quality - The black one very very obvious. The other one.. need to get past the matts and fluff tat needs brushing (ask her owner do!)
6. Pocket Friendly - As much as I wish I could feed them ziwipeak all the time (seriously, I fed them for 1 mth as a special treat coz of some promo/bonus/diobeybio), my normal pocket simply can't afford it.

On a side note.. the girls seem to do well on crocodile meat...
I had a few pieces of frozen ones i bought for my ah gong and he dun wan eat liao so end up at my freezer and i've no time to cook... so feed them when out of kibbles.

Strangely no laosai..

Dry food is very convenient to feed and 'full of nutrients' but it's actually processed food.
It's the same with human food, always try to eat as natural and unprocessed as possible...

ThErMuS 11-10-2017 11:57 AM

U try la... try liao den u know difference.

U know hor.. fur is ALOT when you talk abt a Mongrel (Dbl coated coz lab blood) and a Husky...

So yes... changes in food affect the amt of fur dropped.

I think we have a num of kakis here who feed Acana also...

And oh yes.. their latest range of treats...
DUN FEED TOO MUCH!!!
It's mainly liver... so... Excessive treats = soft poop.
Max = 1 pc/day for the old women in my household.. i fed 2 pc on the day i opened.... pwah..... nxt day regret big time.

Let me know if you're keen to meet up ya. Just tat my old ladies might not be comfortable with young dogs coz energy can't keep up and the black one is now deaf and goin slightly blind.

amiidae 11-10-2017 08:08 PM

I dont think there is no 1 fit all type of food.

It depends very much on the breed and condition of the pet... plus the owner's preference.

My dog has sensitive skin and allergy to beef, pork, chicken etc.. oh ya.. also sensitive to Heartgard... but have no issue with fish4dog - salmon / white fish... and the vet change it to Revolution drip...

no issue with the poo.. btw, mine is Italian greyhound fm Aust.

This I agree.
And also why I keep tryin out new food and switch ard every now and den.

In fact I still switch ard. Other brands I feed on rotation basis -
GO
Golden Harvest

Btw hor... i realised hor... everytime i use revolution or frontline or any of those stuff, my girls tend to have skin issues.

Soulmates 12-10-2017 05:13 PM

I give whatever is on sales and have quality I guess. I go to Sun Petgamart to stock up at least 6 months worth of kibbles.

The latest they are getting is Go! Lamb from B2K Warehouse Sales. Also Alps Natural from different protein sources.

But kibbles wise they're only getting 40% out of their whole diet; The rest are homecooked food (Chicken thigh, beef, fish etc.) or commercial homecooked food (Honest Kitchen), raw or commercial raw (Stella&Chewy, K9 Natural, Primal, NorthWest Natural, Small Batch). Supplement usually natural ones: (48 hours hydrated organic Chia Seeds, EVOO, Coconut Water, Spirulina, Turmeric).

Fruits: Apple, Blueberries, Strawberries, Bananas are mostly what I give them since we eat them a lot at home.

Water parade with Coconut Water like stated, chicken broth added into their food.

For my cats all same except no fruits-- They get canned food as well.

Treats wise I buy single-ingredient dehydrated/ freeze dried treats like Fuzzyard Supernatural, K9 Natural, Deer Deer, Absolute Bites, Vital Essential, Basic instinct, Zeal, Addiction etc. I also have dehydrator but hardly using since I haul a lot at warehouse sales and Expos.

I don't agree with using Revolution or Frontline faithfully every single month, the ticks around them will get immune, and imaging getting poison into their bloodstream every month, they will need to work very hard to dispose of the poison in them. Once per 3-4 months would be better, but I avoid using them altogether since my dogs don't go for walks.

If you're staying in landed etc. perhaps you can get Carrington dog's wash to clean around where the dogs are usually.

ethanleow 12-10-2017 05:31 PM

I feed acana regional pacifica to my poodle

shawnng79 12-10-2017 06:21 PM

daily meal is pedigree dry food + at least 1 pear or apple and 2 pcs of wholemeal bread

6 mths!!!!!!
I think if i need to carry 6 mths worth of food hme... I'll order from polypets wif free delivery might be cheaper.

But honestly.. Go is not bad.
Dunno y my girls can't seem to digest honest kitchen, i think they're weird (like the owner la...)

I PERSONALLY dun use Frontline/Revolution etc.. coz they get into the bloodstream and I dun care wad ppl say/claim.. is as good as injectin the dogs wif poison and den those critters die after they take the poison (ie suck blood).

I Do have a big bottle of carrington dog wash concentrate in the toilet for emergencies - When u kenna liao u die die have to use lor.

Last round of infestation i did an experiment - the bigger the critters, the longer it takes for them to die. Placed a big grey mama into a box of D.E. and to my horror.... she was struggling to spit out EGGS!!!! 3-4 ROUNDS of eggs before she died - ard 1 week later. Eggs din hatch - dunno if it's coz of DE or coz not ready to be spit out but it's DAMN SCARY!!!!

And I also tried those spray thingies.. Bio-something. Pwah... the critters played possum, den came back to life like.. MAGIC!!!
Even tried to apply frontline directly on one big fat critter and to my horror... it DIN DIE IMMEDIATELY!!!!

Last time (10 yrs ago) - I dilute 1 cap carrington to 1lit of water (1/2 dosage) and the job gets done beautifully.
Last round - I had to give full dose and 3 cycles. And daily mopping with carrington. AND pluck.
AND even if frontline/revolution + Carrington, i actually found critter orgy parties on the damn husky still..3-4 all grouped together on top of each other like stacko sucking away..:eek::eek::mad:

They are getting stronger and stronger...

Soulmates 15-10-2017 02:56 AM

Satan; You can try Eradicate!
From B2K, green can. But I think only Groomers' Art having them right now.
I was hoarded by ticks (before I know about Carrington) and they worked wonder. Cleared off allllll my ticks at home! I used quite a few cans though!
But the key is MUST personally hand pick ticks out from your dogs at least twice a day. I had 4 dogs, so imagine the horror. And I never shaved them down.
& Yes I stopped Revolution and Frontline many years ago-- Ticks get immune to them, it's very bad for the dogs blahblahblah.

shawnng79 - Err... Pedigree is chunk loaded with preservatives, colourings and by-products that are not food grade at all. They also never label the meat sources, which can easily be any kind of meats (Yes, roadkills, rats, you name them). Bread is also not advisable to feed to dogs.
