I would LOVE to know your answers. I feed my dog crap. I want this to change.
The only real food we give him are baby carrots for treats. I gave him some bacon yesterday...
Find me at aToadontheRoad.com. Cheers!
Blue Wilderness Diet. No grains in it. I usually add ~ T of bacon grease or other cooked fat. The other feeder doesn't add the fat and they wait a few minutes for it. I give them each half a slice when I have bacon or pork belly.
Beware of fake meat.
Chicken backs and vegetables.
Meat, bones, organ meats, the occasional veggie.
raw diet...the staples of their diet are whole chicken leg quarters, beef, eggs, liver, gizzards, green tripe, veggie mash.
eta: be careful with the bacon...it's high in fat and can cause pancreatitis in dogs that are not used to a high fat content/natural foods. Start with more natural, slightly leaner cuts of meat.

At the moment I'm feeding Wellness dog food. When we move and are a bit settled I'll probably switch to raw. My main goal right now is to get her off of grains.
Oh yeah, and I give her cod liver oil as well.

I came home to a sick pup last Thursday. She must have gotten into something she shouldn't be having and made a real mess of the house, yuck! ....took her to the vet, and they put her on a "bland diet" of chicken and rice which she doesn't seem to find bland. Normally we feed her Wellness Core since there's no grain or fillers. I often wonder if I should put her on a real food diet though...
I feed my dog Taste of the Wild canned food (canned is much better for animals than dry, or so I've read) which is grain free. She gets this in the morning. In the evening while I cook my dinner I whip her up dinner too. Usually ground beef or turkey with beef liver, chicken gizzards or hearts. I cook it lightly in bacon fat. The canned food is fairly expensive but the meat is not so it's not too hard on the wallet.
