Most pet food is garbage.
Dogs and cats aren't made to eat grain or cooked food.
It you really want your pet to be healthy, raw chicken wings, backs, necks...stuff like that.
Dogs and cats like this regularly live half again the expected lifespan...sometimes double...and die with white teeth that look like a 1-year-old.
I live with a dog like this; half Weimeraner half Rhodesian Ridgeback.
She's a big dog. 15 years old and is showing NO signs of being any different from when she was 5.
Nothing like a nice salmonella lick.
Dogs have been genetically modified over the past 15k to 25k years to do quite well on most of the same foods as their companion humans. Don't fall for the same unscientific "noble savage" BS as the Paleo diet.
This is much like the way I was raised.
I wanted to clarify, feeding bits of vegetables, fruit, or meat to our dogs is not done at table. Discouraging a dog from begging is not easy and itsuch more difficult with school age kids
Anything fed other than dogfood is either done at regular feeding times or used as training rewards.
I just know a bunch of people who do this and their dogs are super spry, sickness free, and have beautiful teeth and coats.
I wonder what you're basing your comment on.
Dogs only get salmonella if they have a compromised immune system. Otherwise it passes right through them.
Have you ever seen the rotten skanky crap that dogs eat without getting sick?
They lick butts.
This site thrives on diet shaming.
In their food I will occasionally mix a scrambled egg or some grated cheese. Last night we has left over french fries which I enjoyed tossing to them one at a time.
Cheap dog food really is crappy stuff, full of low quality fillers and grain. Best to avoid foods with by-products of any kind and grains.
The first ingredients in good dog food will be real meat, followed by meat-meal. Meat meal is good and has highly concentrated protein. By-product is not good.
If you want your dog to thrive and you can afford it... buy the really good stuff. And don't feed the same food all the time. Periodically transitioning to a different premium dog food may be a little safer than the same food for their entire lives.
Dude...you lived under the porch and ate table scraps?!
@haggardfan1 grew up tough, fightin the dogs for them scraps!
^ Harsh but
I did make quite the context error there .
Must be the Texas heat!
Be careful on this. We used to give Otis a big meaty raw bone. Dogs like bones, everyone knows that. He'd spend days with it shaving the bone away to nothing. Then he got constipated. The shaved material set solid, like concrete, on the way out. Took the vet a couple of days to shift it and I can't imagine it was a great experience for Otis. Not the first time our vet had seen the problem either.
If mine lay down quietly during the meal, they'll get a small taste of something as long as it's not on the list of bad things like raisins, etc. I'll also share bits of things like apple, bell pepper, chicken, and so on while prepping food if they sit or lie down nicely without being reminded. Basically, people food is a reward for good behavior.
One of their favorites is a little egg yolk. I like my eggs over medium, and sometimes there's a little leftover yolk goodness the toast doesn't pick up. Now when they hear an egg being cracked, they trot in and belly flop on the kitchen floor with their heads down.
I don't currently have a dog but I fed my Boxer (Sooty) almost exclusively dog food but, if there was any meat or veg left after a meal, she'd see it off. I always avoided giving her small bones (fish or chicken). I also did my best to avoid giving her chocolate or biscuits meant for human consumption as I was told they can be addictive and cause diabetes, etc. I wish I could take my own advice
Harley definitely prefers Country to Rock'n'Roll.
I know we arent supposed to but I give them occassional little tidbits and they love to snack on carrots.
The carrot thing, they go berzerk over.
Grain Free wet and dry food for meals; however anything that falls towards the floor seldom makes it to the floor.
They both like Jerky, popcorn, cooked carrots, apple and the crunchy part of toast just like me.
