What type of dog food should I feed my dogs if they are having anal gland problems?
We have a pomeranian and a Llapso and both dogs have anal gland problems. I was told to add rice or pumpkin to their diet. Does that help? Can you tell me the name of a dry dog food that will help?
We do have their anal glands expressed regularly.
Don’t worry about food types to take care of anal gland care. Foods alone won’t do it. Even the “butt scoot boogie” done by the dog itself, won’t alleviate the problem. Manual expression of the glands is almost always the best way to handle the problem. Do it or have it done by your groomer when you get the dog bathed and groomed; have your vet do it, or best, do it yourself when you bathe the dog
Is it that cat food is bad for dogs or dog food bad for cats?
I have been told by many people that dogs can eat cat food and it’s ok but if cats eat dog food they’ll go blind. Then, today, the lady who gave me my cats told me that cat food is bad for my dog but it is ok (but not recommended) for cats to eat dog food. Can someone please give me a definite answer so I can act accordingly? My dog loves eating my cats’ food and I saw one of my cats last night eating my dog’s food.
No one really has the right answer here about the cat food. Cat food has taurine added to it now. Ten years ago vets didn’t realise that lack of taurine was causing cats to go blind and develop fatal heart conditions. Taurine is destroyed in the cooking process (all commercial foods are “cooked”) so now taurine is added to all commercial cat food. Dogs and people can make taurine in their own bodies, cats can’t. Cats also cannot make vitamin A in their bodies which humans and dogs can. Humans cannot make Vitamin C in their bodies so they must eat foods that contain Vitamin C. Cats make Vitamin C in their bodies and don’t need a supplement for their health.
So the dog can eat cat food and the cat cannot survive on dog food. Since I have never owned a dog I do not know if cat food is actually harmful to them. Commmercial pet foods all have less than 40% protein in their formulations and I don’t see how that little extra protein (in a cat food) could possible harm a dog. Protein is not fattening and dogs too are carnivores, just not “obligate carnivores” like the cat. They can eat vegetables like carrots and potatoes which supply them with good nutrition. Vegetables are useless to the cat.
