    Hi, Krista!

    I feed my dog Bruno “soups” for every meal. He gets his dry kibble and a topper that varies at each meal, whether it is canned food, dehydrated/freeze-dried raw, or some other topper, such as coconut or fish oil, yoghurt/kefir/goat milk, raw egg, or canned sardines, and add warm water, stir it all together, and serve him the soup. He loves it! He has been eating soups for years now, precisely because of the added hydration.

    Thank you, Amateria and Pitlove!

    I will add some foods to my list and label them “MAYBE” if they have poultry fat in them, and there are some pretty good-sounding ones by Wild Calling, Addiction, and Holistic Select (I think) that are poultry-free but have poultry fat in them. So we may give them a shot sometime. I hope they work. I just fed Bruno some Zignature Duck and sure enough, buddy started scratching and chewing his legs again, and that was within 3 days on the sample (at least it was just a sample).

    At least my list has gotten pretty big and I have plenty of super-safe-for-Bruno no-poultry options! πŸ™‚ A few hours of research do pay off if I can keep him itch-free and comfortable! πŸ™‚

    Hey, guys, quick question… I have been making a list of foods I could feed Bruno that are poultry and egg-free (for the most part, I have included some options with egg as I am not 100% if that’s an allergen to him yet), and wanted to know about poultry fat – I had emailed Wild Calling about the liver in their canned foods and mentioned how I wished that they didn’t have poultry fat in like every dry formula, and the response I got was that poultry fat is not actually supposed to trigger an allergic reaction.

    Does anyone know if this is true?

    Yay! I am excited! I got mine today and I’m sipping on some collagen-enriched tea and I put a little sprinkle in Bruno’s water bowl. Let’s see how this goes… I don’t know if I will necessarily see any results on Bruno, but at least he will be getting a little extra boost for his joints.

    Hope it works for Boone too! πŸ™‚

    Marie, since you had some for Boone, I will assume it is safe to give to dogs! πŸ™‚

    Do you (or anyone else) think it is too early to start adding it for Bruno, just for maintenance? Also, I was thinking of adding a tiny bit once/week, but I can add it daily to his water if needed, or just a few times/week? Any ideas and recommendations are welcome!

    I am excited about trying the supplement myself, my boss said it really boosted her hair, skin, and nails, and I can definitely use that! πŸ™‚

    I have used bully sticks with my pup when he was teething (still do, he loves them things), and they worked pretty well. I would give no more than 2-3 inches per day for a small dog. I have used fish skins, stingray tails (those last a LONG time for us), even small rugged antlers. He still gets all those chews as an adult dog just because he loves chewing, but when he was a pup, they helped keep his mouth occupied (and not destroying other stuff, like underwear) and they are all healthy chews. Lamb ears would work for small dogs as well (the bully stick you can take away after 2-3 inches are gone, or get some small ones from http://www.bestbullysticks.com – they have great natural chew options). The carrot is a good idea. A small celery stalk may work too, if you want to go the frozen veggie route. Brushing is pretty important too, so I won’t repeat what anonymously suggested, just second their opinion. πŸ™‚

    Naturella
    Member

    Just as an example, my 14.5-15-lb dog Bruno “should” get 1-1.5 cups of his current food daily. He gets a little over 1/2 cup (or a bit less than 3/4 cup) of his food together with additives, so calorie-wise he probably gets around 1 cup of dry per day, but it is not all from the dry. If I wanted him to lose weight, I would reduce the amount of dry I fed him as well as the amount of additives. But for his metabolism and daily exercise, the current plan works well for him and he is in his ideal body condition. Also, make sure you go by the body condition more so than the weight itself.

    I would probably reduce their intake just a bit. The feeding recommendations on the bags are just that – recommendations. It all depends on the dogs themselves on how they process the food. I also wouldn’t look for lower-protein food. Try feeding a little less for a while and see how they respond. If anything, you may need to find a lower-calorie food so that you can still feed them an amount that they are used to, but they would be getting fewer calories from it.

    Possibly others may give you more recommendations, also on what brands might be good.

    My Bruno is currently on the salmon and trout food and he also had a sample of the kangaroo formula. He was itchy on the food he was previously on, so my local pet store recommended Zignature as it is LID. He liked it the first few days, but is not super crazy about it. I usually serve his food with toppers but I have eliminated those for about 2 weeks, due to his itching. I hope he will like it more when I re-introduce some of the toppers. I use the kangaroo formula as treats but he’s not crazy about that either…

    But, it has helped alleviate his itching and stool is great on it so that’s good! πŸ™‚

    anonymously, I did look at the allergy-related topics, yes. I will take Bruno to the vet if the itching were bad, but my mother-in-law reports that she thinks it’s subsiding after he got on Zignature Trout and Salmon. I also put coconut oil on his most itchy spots and that seems to help tremendously. So if it keeps going well, I will just keep doing what I’m doing. I really hope it does turn out that the food was the culprit, because that one is already eliminated and I will know to not feed him chinckeny, potatoey, or tomatoey stuff. So fingers crossed!

    Oh, and Happy Holidays to all who are celebrating!!! Bruno got new green hemp-made collar and leash, and the new food, lol.

    I have had great success with Earthborn Coastal Catch and half of the Earthborn GF recipes (except Primitive Naturals – Bruno seems to be intolerant of tomato pomace, and the Meadow something, the lamb one – too low in protein so I haven’t fed it). So really Coastal Catch and Great Plains Feast have worked well for us, but I like them a lot and would keep them in rotation.

    I second aquariangt. I feed my 14.5lb terrier mix about 1/2 cup of kibble/day (the high-cal kibbles) or a little more (if the kibble is below 400 kcal/cup). I use canned food at dinner time and some other additives as toppers at breakfast so he gets calories from that too, and he is at ideal body condition – lean, good muscle toning, high energy. He also gets about 3-4 treats/day, and if we do training, I use kibble for that and I just count it toward his daily kibble intake.

    So for your dog, if you’re feeding just kibble, start with the recommended amount for the weight she should be at, and you can add some coconut oil as a start and see how she responds. For coconut oil, use the unrefined, extra-virgin stuff. Costco has a very affordable 52-oz jar of the good stuff for about $15-17. Haven’t found a better deal yet.

    I would say yes, buy a small bag of SD and do a longer transition – 75%SD, 25%BB for a few days, then 50-50, then 75%BB-25%SD, then fully BB. See how they do at each stage and go back to a lesser amount of BB if needed. Some dogs take longer than others to transition, so it is all up to your dogs.

    I second Marie and pitlove’s sentiments. Good food and regular brushing are key. My terrier mix sheds a ton, but on good food and supplements like coconut oil, canned sardines, fish skins, etc., his coat has become super shiny and soft, though shedding hasn’t stopped.

    On another note… @pitlove, you live in the South too? So cool! So do I and a few other regulars (there are 3 of us in GA on here that I know of). I may be joining C4C up in the North-West sometime in the 5-year future, I hope! πŸ™‚

    Hey, Kaitlin! I completely agree with Red and pitlove up there. Look up rotation on the home page of this site (type it in the search box) and read up on it some. The foods they mentioned are pretty good and I have personally fed my dog some of them.

    Also, another thought – I don’t know what the weather is like where you live, but in GA, USA it is pretty hot. My terrier mix is double-coated with thick short to medium hair and he had a day-day and a half that he barely ate. I attribute it to heat. He is eating fine now, but your Chow may just be a bit hot to eat as much as he/she normally does.

    Hi, Cindy! From my experience, it is okay to feed both raw and kibble. If they are two separate meals, you should have nothing to worry about, but I’ve even heard of people feeding raw and kibble in the same meal with no issues. So it really just depends on your dog – watch their stool and overall behavior for any signs of discomfort, but with me, it has always been fine. I feed a raw egg with kibble on Wednesday mornings and I feed kibble and canned for breakfast on Sundays and raw for dinner on Sundays with no problems.

    Maybe others will chime in with more advice, but I think it should be totally fine.

    For my Bruno – a 14.5lb Rat Terrier-Jack Russell mix, we gave him antlers since we adopted him at 4-5 months of age. We also gave stuffed Kongs, bully sticks, fish skins, Nylabones, Himalayan dog chews, etc. He is a moderate chewer nowadays so he still gets the same things, plus stuffed and frozen hooves.

    For a heavy chewer, stuffed and frozen Kongs would be your best bet, I believe. I never had a problem with hooves or antlers, even when Bruno used to be a heavy chewer in his puppyhood, but just make sure you always monitor your dog when chewing on toys to prevent any disasters. Bruno used to try to swallow 2-3 inches of fish skins whole, so we started putting vice grips on them, and now he chews them up all the way properly.

    I have read/heard accounts of people who swear by consumption of all-raw and improvement in teeth condition of dogs. But brushing or an equivalent method is also essential. What I use on Bruno are small gauze patches wrapped around my finger with some coconut oil on them, and I scrub his teeth with it. For the back teeth I do need a brush though because his mouth is small.

    LM, thanks for the info! Yeah, Bruno is on a roundworm preventive pill, and I will monitor his stool even when one day we have a yard, but I would feed him raw on the grass. But good to know!

    Also, he digests bones well, but it essential for every pet owner to monitor their pet while chewing on chew toys, natural or artificial, or consuming an RMB. So yes, if the dog is having issues, then they should be given something else, but it is a good thing to try as it has many benefits for their health.

    Chris, as for the venison, I would be just fine giving it raw. Also, you can even feed grocery store (human grade) meat. Organic and grass-fed is best for humans and dogs, but the “regular” grocery store one is OK too. So I would be pretty comfortable with the farm-fresh meat from your butcher, but that’s me. Just watch your dog, his stool, and go from there.

    Pitlove, if I fed my RMBs in a yard, I would not be worried one bit about grass and/or soil getting on them unless I’m using some chemical or toxic pesticides. If you are not, i think grass and dirt are ok. Maybe someone else can confirm or refute that though.

    As for Chris, I second Bobby Dog – adding fresh foods to kibble is pretty good. I add coconut oil (UNREFINED raw organic extra-virgin cold-pressed is ideal but as long as it’s at least unrefined it should be okay), yoghurt/kefir, raw egg, canned sardines in water, and the RMB in addition to the canned/pouches I mentioned earlier. I also use some treats and natural chews here and there.

    If you can get some Raw Meaty Bones, like beef ribs, and some meat, fresh from the farm and at a good price, I’d go for it, yes. RMBs are really good for dental health and raw is really good period. Balanced raw, that is. But as an addition, it would not hurt if it is under the 10% of total meals.

    Oh, wow, pitlove, an embalmer? That’s kind of cool! πŸ™‚

    And Chris, you live on farmlands… Can you not get fresh raw meat from it, or is it a veggie farm?

    Thanks, Bobby Dog! I have seen, it has grown a lot! πŸ™‚

    And yeah, I may just ask a question on it later on, lol.
