Hi all! I’m the proud owner of two furbabies: a 1 1/2 y/o chihuahua and a 8 w/o lab/Norwegian mix. We’re interested in giving our dogs homemade food, but I’m concerned about which suppliments to use. Our main food recipes I know will include ground meat, rice, veggies and crushed whole eggs. What suppliments to you recommend we add to their daily diet? Thanks in advance for any advice! 😀CyndiMember
You might want to look into the See Spot Live Longer dinner mixes. I don’t think you’d have to add rice or veggies if you use that. There is alot of information on the site and Steve Brown’s book “See Spot Live Longer” is excellent.
I’m sure someone else will post their advice and maybe give you a few more options…theBCnutMember
DinOvite is a supplement that only needs ground meat, whole eggs, and fish oil added to it. You can also add rice if you want to.
You can get Steve Brown’s book “Unlocking the Canine Ancestral Diet” for help on how the balance a dogs diet. There is also Dr Karen Becker’s book “Real Food for Healthy Dogs and Cats.”crazy4catsMember
This time of year, I feel like I’m giving my dog a scoop of this and that. I’m thinking about combing them in a sealed tub to make feeding easier. The supps that I’m considering is the garlic granules, DE and Perfect Form. I’d mix the right percentages together in a tub and only have to scoop from one container when feeding.
Does anyone see any issues with this method?Bobby dogMember
I can’t comment on your idea because I never mixed supplements like that for my dogs and I totally understand the need for simplicity.
When I used to board my horses I had to make adding supplements to my horses meals very simple, or they would not have gotten them. I used to mix daily supplements in small plastic bags so all the person had to do was dump the bag. I doubt the person feeding even took the time to mix it into their feed, even though I hung a mixing spoon next to their stall doors. lolAnita LMember
I totally understand what you mean. It would be easier.
I’ve never done it myself, but my thought would be……even though it’s all mixed together, are you guaranteed to get the right “mix” (proportions) each time you get a “scoop?”crazy4catsMember
Yeah, I thought about that too. I’d have to mix it really well and make sure it stays mixed, wouldn’t I?Carrie PMember
Fido Active Supplement is very effective. You should try it and this is well proven.InkedMarieMember
