A question about dog food/nutrition.
Does anyone feed their dog a homemade diet? I need to know some things. Okay so today I started my shih apso mix princess, on her new homemade food diet. It includes rice, potato, beef, carrots and eggs. It is in a stewy paste and was very appetizing to her. However, at night, she is still hungry. I measured out 1 cup of the mixture, just like the internet sources say for a 14 pound dog. What else can I do to fill her stomach but not make her fat?
yes i feed once in the morning and again at dinner time
I’ve been feeding my dogs home-made for about a year now, using Dr. Pitcairn’s book. My dogs get fed twice a day – is that what you’re doing, dividing her daily portion into 2 meals? If not, you might want to try that because dogs do much better being fed twice a day.
Dogs need less food cup-wise being fed home-made food because there are no fillers, there’s lots of calories in it, so if you’re following a good recipe, your dog won’t be hungry following the guidelines for her weight. There may be an adjustment period while she gets used to the new food, though.
Making my own homemade dog food?
I’m interested in making my own dog food at home to save money and also feed my dog a healthier diet. What are some good recipes and does anyone feed their dog like this regularly? I’d appreciate some tips.
I feed my 2 dogs a homemade raw diet which they absolutely love. I used to feed Pedigree but a website I like called dog-food-aid.com has a really good section on dog food ingredients – need to know pages – so I decided to change.
Had to do the changeover over a week or so and also by stages starting at around 20-25% as recommended but my dogs took to their new food like ducks to water!
There is a BARF/Raw button and if you click that you will find out more plus a link to a eBook that you can download which tells you all you need to know to give your dog a new healthy food regime that does not cost the earth.
Hope this helps and good luck
Homemade dog food nutrition?
I am interested in making homemade dog food for my 3 year old chihuahua and my 12 week old malchi. I have found a few recipes, but I need more information on what nutritional guide to go by. Like how much meat and which vegetables and fruits to use and how much. I am not interested in the raw food diet since they include bones and being that my dogs are little and one is so young. Also with the raw diets, I hear there is risk of e. coli. I definitely want to cook mine. Also which vitamins or supplements are the best to add? Thank you!
Can i get some more info. on the raw diets such as Barf and raw meaty bones diet?
I have fed my dog on raw meat, meaty bones and offal since she was nine weeks old. Her pups will be weaned straight onto this diet too.
The risk of bacterial contaimination is actually higher in cooked and minced meats that are being stored than a solid chunk of meaty bone. Commercial foods are frequently recalled due to contamination – both human and animal, so to say that raw food is riskier is a fallacy.
Dogs are NOT human – their digestive system is designed for raw meat, skin, bones and offal not vegetables, fruits and grains. Please read the attached links before you discount a raw diet. The millions of raw feeders around the world are just not experiencing the so-called problem of bacteria with their dogs.
