Have you considered a raw diet? Dogs tend to love it and you can incorporate raw foods quite easily…I don’t have any specific dog food brands I would recommend so I suggest you try a few different types of dry and wet food and see what your puppy likes.
I would avoid it because fish bones can be very dangerous. I’d rather find a different food, the good thing is there are plenty of options that don’t pose such a risk.
I think it’s a great idea that you want to start making dog food for your pup! I don’t there’s anything harmful or unhealthy about the ingredients you mentioned, but as the person above me said you should look into adding some supplements to your dog’s diet just to be safe. There’s plenty on the market with things like CBD oil, flax seed oil etc. In fact, there’s a wellness protocol that uses flax seed oil and cottage cheese. It’s based on the work of Dr. Budwig and many dog owners have seen positive changes in their dogs. Plus there’s even a peanut butter variety so your dog will love it! You should look into trying supplements like the Budwig protocol to make sure that you’re giving your dog a well rounded, healthy diet. Best of luck!February 10, 2020 at 8:26 pm in reply to: Need help with choosing for finicky special needs dachshund! #152945 Report Abuse
Sorry to hear that your dog has those respiratory issues. I see that you’ve taken him to the vet, but have you tried getting a second or third opinion? Maybe there’s an expert on these kinds of things somewhere that you can consult.February 7, 2020 at 12:23 am in reply to: Best food for senior Maltese mix and two 1 year old Chiweenies #152812 Report Abuse
I don’t know much about senior specific dog foods so imho if all the dogs are happy and healthy with the current food you usually feed them then there’s no problem feeding them all the same thing. However, senior dogs do need extra care and that’s where supplements can come in. These days, there are so many types of oils like CBD and fish oils that have a variety of health benefits. There’s also flax seed oil which when combined with cottage cheese has actually helped dogs suffering from diseases like arthritis and even cancer. It can help keep senior dogs thriving and happy for longer. There’s a company in Florida that specializes in this wellness protocol. Switching to senior food is probably a good option, but you should also do some research into supplements to see if they might be a good idea to add to your dog’s diet.
Kibble is the most mainstream form of dog food so it can be a problem when a dog refuses to eat it. One thing I can suggest if you have a dog that refuses to eat it is to mix it with something that the dog likes. In particular, there’s a formula based on the Budwig protocol which is called Buddy Custard. It has all natural ingredients, and there’s a peanut butter variety! I have yet to meet a dog that doesn’t love peanut butter. Since it tastes like peanut butter, dogs eat it right up. Plus the BC website lists testimonials from owners that have seen real changes in their pets, even those who had developed canine cancer and other illnesses. Not only does the peanut butter custard taste great for dogs, but also they’re getting something that has healthy advantages for them and they get to eat their kibble!
Cancer is a terrible illness, devastating as it is, the fact that it makes things seem hopeless make it even worse. Recently, I learned about Buddy Custard and if you guys haven’t heard of it before, you need to check out their website and look at the testimonials. Several of the testimonials mention cancer. Overall though Buddy Custard is a product that aims to improve the longevity and quality of a dog’s life. Their website also has research studies that show how the ingredients they use work. I mean they’re based on The Budwig Diet which was originally brought about by Dr. Johanna Budwig in the 1950s. If you want something that will truly help during a time like this I would definitely consider Buddy Custard.
Sorry to hear that your dog’s been having some health issues. A nutritious diet is of utmost important when it comes to a healthy life. As others have suggested definitely work with your vet to find a good solution and get a second or even third opinion. There is a product named Buddy Custard that has only four all natural ingredients and can be easily incorporated into your dog’s diet. Buddy Custard has been proven to benefit many dogs even those suffering from chronic illnesses and cancer because it is based on the work the renowned Dr. Johanna Budwig. It works to maintain cells healthy and in good working condition so that your dog can thrive. I would take a look at their website so you can look through the testimonials and scientific research studies that back them. Then you can discuss it with your vet to see if it’s a viable option for your dog. Personally, I think it’d be a good option for your female rottie as it contains no added harmful ingredients and it’s a nutritious wellness program that is designed to help dogs live long, happy lives.
I wish you and your dogs the best!
