What I feed my dogs

When I was a kid there weren't many choices for what to feed your dogs. However in the last few years canine nutrition has caught up with and in some cases surpassed human nutrition.

Purebred dogs like humans can suffer from food allergies. In some cases those allergies can be devastating and life threatening.  NEVER feed a dog food containing corn or wheat products. Look out for "by-products".

I have tried many high end foods with different results. Some borderline positive and some with some very unpleasant results. The most positive, and consistent results have been with Natural Balance.

Natural Balance is nutritionally sound without corn or wheat and by-products. They have many different options and flavors based on protein.  Natural Balance is the ONLY food that I have found to agree with all of my dogs-both breeds.

I periodically also cook for my dogs and add it to the  Natural Balance.  You can find a lot of wonderful recipes on the internet.  One of my favs. is brown rice boiled with ground turkey, chicken or lamb with chopped apples, blueberries, sweet potato and sometimes frozen veggies like peas and carrots.   And any combo of the above. I've found that the veggies tend to increase the gas. So you may want to re-think that.

When it comes to feeding yourself and your pet, become a label reader.
