Crazy4dogs on Evolve Dog Food (Dry) Hi Vica-Pip Meyer,Switching proteins within a brand will not make your dog lose weight unless there is a drastic difference in calories per serving. Usually the brand has similar calorie count between formulas unless it's a reduced calorie, weight loss type of formula. How much are you currently feeding the dog? Also, how old is he and how active?If your dog continues to gain weight and is as heavy as you've mentioned you might want to either exercise the dog more and feed less or choose a…

Vica-Pip Meyer on Evolve Dog Food (Dry) Hi there, We recently switched our dogs over to the salmon and sweet potato because it appeared he was becoming over weight fast. Then our next visit he had gained another 10 pounds! So we were told to feed him less, we have been doing so but he is still gaining weight rapidly.How much should we be feeding a german shepherd who is 81 pounds but should be closer to 65?

Jazmin on Best Raw Dog Foods Hi, I just got an English bulldog, breeder said she was feeding her pedigree which to be honest I don't believe her since her coat was so beautiful I think she was in a raw diet because of a comment the breeder told me, I've already tried taste of the wild,earthbound holistic, and some of the merrick can food she won't eat, at all!!!!! Its very frustrating but my last hope is to try the raw, now which one ? Thanks!!!
July 27, 2015 8:21 pm

Pitlove on Off Topic Discussions mine was exactly the same. he went a whole day without eating on his puppy food (Blue Wilderness). he didn't like Nature's Variety much either. He didn't really start eating until i first introduced canned into his diet. But honestly i don't mind. I feel now that canned should be an essential part of their diet.

Mark D. Madron on Bravo Dog Food Recall July 2015 NONE of the pet food companies, ESPECIALLY the high end dog/cat food companies, after what happened with all the recalls of products containing materials from China, use ANYTHING from China! It would be stupid to do so.
July 27, 2015 6:20 pm

sharron on Off Topic Discussions forgot to mention that i am seriously thinking of changing her over to acana light and fit and feed it as for weight management rather than weight loss - her weight is good - she also likes the RC can food - she would love it if i feed her straight can but i found that it is too expensive
July 27, 2015 5:06 pm

sharron on Off Topic Discussions i have to add can to the dry, doesn't matter what brand of dry it is - she's never really like straight dry food in all of her nearly 7 yrs - when i think back to when she was a puppy, she didn't really like it then either
July 27, 2015 5:00 pm

Pitlove on Off Topic Discussions While I don't find RC to be a quality food, it's better than the foods I mentioned, which would absolutely be worst of the worst.I understand that finding foods that your dog will eat is exhausting. I went through it also. However, changing your dogs diet is very healthy for them, just like you, I'm sure, enjoy variety in your diet.My dog became interested in food again when I started adding canned to his diet and when I started giving him a variety of foods he did well on. Now he eats…

sharron on Off Topic Discussions hi and thanks for your comments on my question - i'm not feeding the bottom of the barrel type food - it is royal canin which i always go back to because this is really the only food she will stick with without kicking up a fuss - i'm tired of changing foods - haven't done it in quite awhile - at her annual check up her vet says she is fine - her vet didn't ask what she food she is on and i didn't mention it either

Pitlove on Low Protein Dog Foods You said: " I have seen the bad results of feeding cooked chicken along with vegetables"You made no mention of any other foods in the diet. Excuse me for taking your words literally.
July 27, 2015 4:12 pm

Shawna on Low Protein Dog Foods Afterthought -- I may have misunderstood? If you are meaning home cooked versus a canned KD option then YES, I can totally see this. The canned Science Diet food isn't horrible (for the later stages of the disease). Egg whites, a very good quality protein, is the protein used and in modest amounts which would help the symptoms in the later stages of KD.I do think there could be better options, say a homemade diet formulated by a nutritionist specifically for the stage of disease the pup…
July 27, 2015 4:02 pm

Shawna on Low Protein Dog Foods Hi Signify,Was there extenuating circumstances that may have caused the improvement with canned? Like - was the original home cooked diet balanced, were they feeding grains (which could throw off the mineral balance), was there an ingredient in the homemade food that wasn't in the canned food - an example, my Pom gets colitis from chicken in any form. She will always do better on a canned food with no chicken then on a homemade food including chicken?I have read info from Dr. Becker,…

Michelle on Premium Edge Dog Food (Dry) I give my dogs (both mixed breeds) the healthy weight dog food. It has five stars, its a touch more than the weight maintence type. My one dog had gained ten pounds in six months so that's why we started this food. He lost about 7 pounds in six months on this food. His vet said he's doing great and is very healthy, he highly recommended this brand.
July 27, 2015 2:56 pm

Pitlove on Low Protein Dog Foods An unbalanced homecooked diet is the worst diet you can feed your dog, which is exactly what cooked chicken and a couple veggies thrown in is.

Christine Daley on Nature’s Variety Instinct Dog Food Recall of July 2015 That's what they said to me. I was even looking for the email but must have deleted it. I was told China. At that point I had purchased the rabbit and stopped when they told me that. That's all I can say.

Shawna on Premium, Gourmet or Natural Dog Food… Really? I agree aimee. Especially if reptiles are a source of salmonella contamination as suggested by the CDC then I imagine a lot of us have or have had salmonella in our GI tracts and not known it.This isn't the CDC but if the numbers are even remotely accurate, there's likely A LOT of folks that have been contaminated quite regularly. "Studies have shown that 85% of all turtles, 77% of lizards, and 92% of snakes carry one of the 500 serotypes of Salmonella. Salmonella usually do not cause any…

July 27, 2015 2:17 pm

Crazy4dogs on Premium, Gourmet or Natural Dog Food… Really? Do you realize that even the CDC says most people will need no treatment with salmonella, and we are much more susceptible to it than our canine friends.http://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/general/index.htmlYou can just as easily get salmonella from preparing fresh meat for your family. Cleaning thoroughly and correctly is the most important aspect of any food preparation.

Shawna on Best Weight Loss Dog Foods A change is a comin in the human field and my guess is it won't be long before it trickles down into the dog world.You've quoted Dr. Weil before so I'm guessing he is a suitable person to quote?

Crazy4dogs on Nature’s Variety Instinct Dog Food Recall of July 2015 I was part of that discussion several months ago. I also called as I needed a novel protein for an allergy dog. I was more interested in the kibble at that time, but I thought they said all rabbit was from France. They did confirm it with an email, just now, as well.
July 27, 2015 1:53 pm

Pitlove on Off Topic Discussions Any dog food out on the market today legally needs to meet certain standards set by AAFCO and the FDA, mainly AAFCO. As long as the "dog food" meets the very minimum requirements your dog can survive on this food. Key word here being survive.I have yet to see a feeding trail done for any length of time (I'd like to see 5+ years) to show the long term effects of feeding foods like "Ben's Best Dog Food" which contains things like cattle feed, or even the infamous "Beneful". All we have to go…

Dori on Low Protein Dog Foods Hee hee. No, actually BC often has that as her last tag line of a number of posts. She did it all the time for a while. I think the line original on line went something like that dogs were like potato chips, you can't just have one. BC uses it as Border Collies, you can't just have one. Then it got shortened through time to Border Collies, potato chips, who knew? We all think it's kinda cute. If I were to add that it would be Toy Dogs are like Potato Chips you can't just have one, who…

Dori on Premium, Gourmet or Natural Dog Food… Really? Thanks for the post Aimee. I've got to run at the moment but will read the links as soon as I get back home. But so far what I'm gathering is that people have a bit of salmonella in them also? That is very interesting. I never knew that. Admittedly I've never researched the subject. Now you've got my mind thinking on salmonella and humans. Love finding out new things. Again, thanks.
July 27, 2015 1:36 pm

Pitlove on Nature’s Variety Instinct Dog Food Recall of July 2015 Ya thats what I thought. The rabbit is from France. A lot of companies are getting their rabbit from France instead of China and have been for a few years since finding the source. I don't think these companies were happy about having to source rabbit from China in the first place, but from what I know China was the only place to get it for a long time.
July 27, 2015 1:29 pm

aimee on Premium, Gourmet or Natural Dog Food… Really? Hi Dori,This comment you wrote got me thinking. "All dogs have a bit of salmonella in them and they do just fine. We are the ones that don't."My personal opinion is that dogs and people are probably not all that different in regards to response to Salmonella exposure. Some may experience nothing, some may have mild illness and some become gravely ill. The GI physiology just isn't all that different between dogs and people. JMOI've always considered Salmonella to be more of a temporary…

Dori on Nature’s Variety Instinct Dog Food Recall of July 2015 C4D I know that a number of us have posted this in the past but some just don't want to believe it. NV used to source rabbit from China but that stopped about 2 - 2 1/2 years ago. The question continues with some. Someone just posted the other day that they spoke to someone at NV and was told that their rabbit came from China. I called that same day and was told it comes from France so was that poster just a liar, or do they actually have something against NV? Who knows. I had also spoken…

Christine Daley on Nature’s Variety Instinct Dog Food Recall of July 2015 Hi again Ilene. Who knows what other batches are contaminated!!! I think there may be more to come. Plus I think their rabbit is from China. Contact them and find out!!! But if pup getting sick don't feed.

Dori on Tremenda Sticks Dog Chews Recall Actually Pitlove I'm immune compromised after years of having an autoimmune illness I've jumped into the immune compromised group. (Years of meds for the autoimmune illness have now made me susceptible to illness). But that doesn't mean that I'm never going to handle raw food. How would I prepare dinner (on the rare occasions I do...hahaha), I feed my three raw diets and treat raw the same as I do when preparing any raw at home for my husband and I. It's not a big deal. Wash, wash, wash.…

July 27, 2015 10:37 am

Dori on Tremenda Sticks Dog Chews Recall Don't forget BC that we also have some vegetarians on this site that also feed raw. They would have no reason to feed raw when they themselves don't eat it if they didn't feel that it is more species appropriate and healthier than kibble and canned. Recalls of raw would be a perfect excuse for them to switch, but they don't because they either know better or they use common sense in knowing that our dogs are not going to be hurt by salmonella only we will if we don't adhere to cleanliness.
July 27, 2015 10:36 am

Dori on Tremenda Sticks Dog Chews Recall It's not actually a EUREKA MOMENT as there is no one food that is for every dog or cat. That's just common sense. I've got from an autoimmune illness which I still have to immune compromised because of the intravenous medications that I must take and I've been feeding raw to my crew of three for a little over 4 years now. It has never been an issue for me or my dogs. I use common sense when preparing raw foods for my dogs and also for my husband and myself. It's really quite simple: WASHING…

Dori on Premium, Gourmet or Natural Dog Food… Really? No actually, not true at all. The recalls for foods with possible salmonella contamination are for the humans benefit not necessarily the animals unless the animal has an already weakened immune system, etc. All dogs have a bit of salmonella in them and they do just fine. We are the ones that don't. Of course if we follow the protocol of washing hands, utensils and cleaning off counters then there is no problem either.

Christine Daley on Nature’s Variety Instinct Dog Food Recall of July 2015 Someone on NV face book mentioned the FDA holding these raw companies to human standards. Why not!! If you think about it we are being charged human prices. A bag of NV is about $33.00 give or take for 3 pounds of medallions. That's $11.00 a pound. Some people do not pay that for their own food!!

July 27, 2015 9:29 am

Pitlove on Low Fat Dog Food — Good or Bad for Your Pet? Ah alright. Mine is the same way on GF, better poops etc, but I think it's because he's only ever eaten grain inclusive once in his life. His body might not know how to process grains yet.Main thing to do with whatever food you feed as long as it's a low carb/calorie food is to feed for the weight you want to see her at.
July 27, 2015 9:19 am

Christine Daley on Nature’s Variety Instinct Dog Food Recall of July 2015 Looks that way. I will continue to feed raw with my Orijen kibble until I feel I should no longer do so. I personally do not purchase chicken. I would like to think I am not feeding my dogs bacteria so I guess we shall see how this all turns out!! I presently have switched to Primal right before this recall just coincidence. Primal only uses HPP on their poultry (chicken, turkey, duck). But my pups are young and healthy!! It looks like re contamination occurred after their HPP process!!…

I think anyone who is, after going through most likely years of dealing with their illness, would be much more educated than that.Clearly, this is a sensitive subject for you and I respect that you or someone in your family has an immune disorder and can not be around raw meats, however clearly that is no reason to tell people on this site that they are being irresponsible and not considering consequences…

July 27, 2015 9:03 am

Pitlove on Low Fat Dog Food — Good or Bad for Your Pet? Not all GF foods are created equal thats true. Do they cause weight gain? Not that I've seen. My dog is able to maintain ideal weight on GF and grain inclusive. One thing that is important is making sure it has a high amount of animal meat protein. The first 3 ingredients should be whole meats or meat meals. Check out WellnessCORE Reduced Fat. Lots of people have had success with weight loss for their dogs on that food.

Susan on Hill’s Prescription Diet I/D Canine (Dry) Why it works is the insoluble fiber % & soluble fiber % amounts, if your feeding the I/d gastro it has 2.6%-crude fiber 1.2%-soluble fiber & 6.7%-insoluble fiber ..email other kibble companies & try & get all the fiber % & make sure the fat% is around the same in the I/d.... Have you tried the "California Natural" limited ingredients Chicken & Rice or Lamb & Rice? the crude fiber is low & I know if you email California Natural they will give you all the fibers %…

Karen Mitchell on Nature’s Variety Instinct Dog Food Recall of July 2015 It's great that you have stopped with the commercial pet food. This way you know what they are eating. You need to ask yourself though, are they getting a balanced diet? Feeding your pet an all natural raw food ensures that they have the highest benefits for their health. Lean meat/muscle, offal, etc

el doctor on Tremenda Sticks Dog Chews Recall I'm sorry, but I'm not the owner.

Darlene Arden, CABC on Tremenda Sticks Dog Chews Recall Note that every single response to what I said has been negative. I've yet to see an exception. Since your "handle" here is "el doctor," are you the site owner? If so, I've been trying to find a place to unsub from updates. I've been using your updates to send to social networking which I thought was the point. I had merely said thank you for posting what I seldom see anywhere, which is a recall to raw food. I see recalls for many commercial foods. I can use the government site. I'm not…

el doctor on Tremenda Sticks Dog Chews Recall "I don't know why everyone is jumping on me or why the assumptions are being made when no one here knows me."In your short time here, your posts and your reactions to those who disagree with you have given us a window into your psyche!And although we don't really know you, we have witnessed your disrespectful and rude demeanor in a matter of minutes.

el doctor on Tremenda Sticks Dog Chews Recall I didn't assume anything. You said this about ALL raw feeders -"What all raw feeders, in their passion, neglect to mention is how dangerous it can be."What a silly thing for someone who posts letters after their name in order to garner credibility to say!

el doctor on Tremenda Sticks Dog Chews Recall Why are you only adamant about protecting immune compromised people and children against the dangers of acquiring Salmonella from raw food?What about the dangers of those same populations acquiring Salmonella from dog foods that are not raw?Why the one-sided super biased point of view?
July 27, 2015 1:39 am

Darlene Arden, CABC on Tremenda Sticks Dog Chews Recall No. That's your assumption. But everyone here has assumed something about me that isn't true. It's rather amusing. I signed up for this site for the recalls so that I could cross-post them to social networking sites. Obviously, this is not a friendly place to be. I'll look for a way to unsub and use the government website instead.

Darlene Arden, CABC on Tremenda Sticks Dog Chews Recall I said it was dangerous for those who are immune-compromised, which is a simple fact. As I said to someone else who posted, I was simply stating a simple fact. Everyone seems to be jumping to conclusions about who I am, how I feed, etc. I don't know why everyone is jumping on me or why the assumptions are being made when no one here knows me.

el doctor on Tremenda Sticks Dog Chews Recall What a biased, stereotypical, untrue view you have of ALL raw feeders!
July 27, 2015 1:34 am

Darlene Arden, CABC on Tremenda Sticks Dog Chews Recall My tone wasn't nasty. That's your interpretation. People feed a wide range of foods. That's their choice. I merely pointed out one thing that was not mentioned and everyone got up in arms over it. Frankly, I'm sorry I said anything. I don't argue. I don't fight. I'm positive in everything I do. Those who are at risk should understand that. Period.

aegean1 on Do They Really Use Dead Dogs and Cats to Make Pet Food? Some people keep chickens for pets, does that mean we shouldn't feed our cats and/or dogs chickens? I'm not necessarily opposed to "recycling" dog and cat carcasses from shelters (it's wasteful and maybe feeding them off to other animals would make people think twice about not neutering their animals), my big concern would be the drugs used to euthanize tainting the meat.
