what do you feed?

Post by maryj on Thu Feb 12, 2015 11:32 am

I was wondering what some of you feed your dogs === I changed to Fromm several months ago and am pretty happy --- Mr. Peanuts had lost most of his coat due to a groomer shaving him too close to his skin -- after switching to Fromm his hair grew back!! and he was bald close to 5 years... In my opinion it is one of the best dry food.. I also give canned -- either fromm, halo or merrick...

I had been feeding science diet Healthy Longevity,but found there wasn't enough joint supplements to help my Mini Pin. so we did the 28 day challenge with Purina One Chicken and Rice formula. Boy what a difference! Star has more energy as well as my Mini Pin/Chi mix. I know there is better, but this is the best I can afford for my boys.
They also get Zuke's Peanut butter training treats. Walks every day, even in the rain and lots of love.

Teeko will be 2 next month and he's been on primal and Stell & Chewy for over a year. He's doing really good on it. The white part of his fur has a pearly sheen to it. He was on Fromm before we switched to raw. If I went back to kibble it woulfd be Fromm.

My kids were on Fromm(game bird) when we first started searching for good quality food. It was recommended by someone on Dogfoodadvisor.com. I think it is a great product for small size dogs and they loved the size of their kibbles and taste. 

I put my kids on a variety diet and we went through many brands of kibbles in less than 6mths. When we first got my boy he was on Diamond rice and lamb by the breeder, but he wasn't eating it at all just nibble here and there. So we tried Canidae with the same results even mixed with wet food. Origen was rated the best food and it was the most expensive food that I had purchased, so you would think he would like it, but NOPE! Origen kibbles size is really huge, at one point he thought the kibble was gonna attack him. So all of that all went down the drain as well. We also tried their raw freeze dried, both my kids didn't like it as much as the other raw diet but they did manage to eat it anyway.

Right now the majority of their diet consist of raw dehydrated/freeze dried. Twice a week they get cooked homemade meals. And these are what they are being fed for breakfast/dinner:

Sojos 
Stella and Chewy
Primal
Vital essential raw diet nipplets
ZiwiPeak 

We use kibble maybe once or twice a week and right now they are on Wellsness Core, we are at about 1/4 left in the bag and they are starting to rejecting it. Merrick is another product they also seem to like as well. I just recently got Annamaet delivered, it seems to have a really high rating.

They reject all can products. The only wet food they'll eat is Nature variety, they love all the flavors, it's packed in small tubs for each meal per serving they get that occasionally as well.

They're being fed like this for a little over 4 months now. They seem to be pretty healthy and poop is always consistent. My reasons for doing it like this is because we move and travel alot, so we might not have access to the food that they normally get, but this way it'll be an easy transition for them with no worries of upsetting their stomach. And I believe that variety will give them a well balanced diet and it's really boring being fed the same thing for years. Would you eat the same meal everyday?

Hi..
I make my own foods and include some raw. The teeth are lovely and white and coats in nice condition.
My vet has Purina in stock and I use it as a standby. It doesn't make the dogs loose.
I have not heard of Fromm here
I have had Royal Canin from time to time but for what it is, there seems no marked difference. Eukanuba seems a bit better..

Hi All,
I feed my dog Natures Variety Instinct Raw Boost in the Venison and Lamb Meal Formula dry kibble and occasionally the moist food too. Plus, I also cook for him a dinner of turkey, sweet potatoes and peas. He recently switched back to eating lamb chops instead of the turkey. My dog Kobe has very severe allergies and is highly allergic to chicken hence the venison, turkey or lamb. He is also probably the most picky eater in the world and gets bored very easily after eating the same thing for a while, which is why I recently switched him back to the lamb.
