How much coconut oil are you adding. My girl loves to lick it off my fingers. I give my girl a meat broth every morning with a capful of ACV, and have started adding some coconut oil.
When My rottweiler (mixed) joined us at 5 months, she had some issues. I give her broth with a teaspoon of applecider vinegar every morning and cottage cheese or greek yogurt with a probiotic every afternoon. We feed her orijen, taste of the wild victors, arcana it varies. one cup AM and 1/2 cup 2:00 and one cup PM She is doing well so far and not had any more blood in the urine. They Rx antibiotics several times and I knew that wasn’t the answer.December 18, 2016 at 7:23 pm in reply to: Victor Grain Free…anyone feed? Or other options based on my post? #92698 Report Abuse
Summer—your dogs like Victor foods, but you do not like the company. What is it about the company that we need to be aware of? ThanksSeptember 14, 2016 at 8:38 pm in reply to: Victor Grain Free…anyone feed? Or other options based on my post? #90007 Report Abuse
My pet store recommended Victor as they had researched it. They discontinued Merrick as it had been bought out by purina I believe and replaced it with Victor. So I am using that now with no adverse effects. I am mixing it with Vitapure. Also have used Orijen and taste of the Wild combo.September 9, 2016 at 9:50 pm in reply to: Kibble good for yeast infections and other skin issues? #89803 Report Abuse
Thank you Joseph for your contributions. I do think sugars/carbs cause candidiasis in people.September 9, 2016 at 9:40 pm in reply to: Does anyones dog suffer from Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrow.. #89802 Report Abuse
So far no problems but I do give her a probiotic every day and ACV in her water/broth and grain free Kibbles.
Naturella: I went to the small family owned pet place this week to ask for Merrick because of it’s high ratings. The owner said they don’t carry Merrick since Purina bought them out.
She recommended Victor pet food because it is family owned and has always only made dog and cat food. I am sure there were other reasons also.
Does you vet get a kick back on this dog food? I think they do. I think you can do better and I would not feed it to my dog.
In my opinion if you have found that your dog doesn’t do well with chicken–then don’t feed it chicken. Do your homework and feed him what you think he should have. Susan is right about the vets and nutrition. At least some vets. Royal Canin s/o was sent home with us for our dogs urinary problem and after my husband researched it and said as many dogs died on it as those that were helped—he took it back. He paid the $200 and we weren’t told what kind of crystals were found in the urine, but since it is mostly rottweiler I expect it was struvite. Simplicef tablets 200 mg was dispensed. Seems like she is on antibiotics all the time. My husband goes with Rx and I prefer remedies.
My 9 month old gets 2 and 1/2 cups a day. I use part orijen and part taste of the wild.
Also she likes a dab of cottage cheese for treat and also apple and cooked or raw carrots.
Blue Buffalo admitted the truth in court yesterday: A “substantial” and “material” portion of Blue Buffalo pet food sold over the past several years contained poultry by-product meal, despite pervasive advertising claims to the contrary. Blue Buffalo asked the Court for additional time to file an Amended Complaint in the litigation, naming its ingredient suppliers as Defendants.
The admission came almost one year to the day when Purina filed a lawsuit against Blue Buffalo for false advertising after testing revealed the presence of poultry by-product meal in some of Blue Buffalo’s top selling pet foods.
Gail having heard something negative lately I thought I would google and see what the latest on Blue Buffalo and came across this info. If I recall correctly they were also part of the melamine deaths of dogs sue to ingredients from China.
I agree. My dog really likes it. I try to get two different brands and use half of one brand and then use a different brand. A the moment I have vita pure. The cost of Taste of the Wild is easier on the budget.
Loree, where do I look for the #5 rating that was given to Wells Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural Grain-Free Dog Food
I ordered Acana but the shoppe called to come pick it up and it was orijen when I got there. So we have used Orijen large puppy food and the pup is happy and her coat more shiny.
I just got a 6 month puppy large breed and wondered if nutrisource purevita venison and red lentils is a top quality brand and if my puppy needs additional supplement or a different brand.
