I have used prescription food. Definitely healthier for homemade. Too many things found in dog foods, all of them. Even that one called Blue something,Suppose to be #1 dog food. She is doing much better with homemade and I know what is in it. My one year old puppy eats that veggie added meals I make also. Both have nice fur. Homemade is better. So many recalls on good brand dog food. Who knows where it is truly made. Most out of the country.
Molly has a slightly high BUN kidney reading, we decreased the blood pressure medication and she will be retested this Monday. But with the kidney issue, too much protein is not good. So I am like, what am I suppose to feed her. So far this Dr.Harvey’s has been great. I just have to find more meat choices, but meat and eggs are protein so I could try an egg and half chicken. It is really hard.
Also which Book were you referring to by Lew Olson? He has a few. Thanks Kathy
My 14 yr old Pom with heart murmur is on COQ10. I also get Dr.Harveys online “Veg-to-Bowl ” fine ground.It has all kinds of veggies and super healthy ingredients. I boil chicken mainly as my dog is not big on beef, and then add a scoop of Dr.Harvey’s Veg-to-bowl. It is good. But my dog is getting bored with it every night. She is on enapril, low dose for blood pressure to keep the heart from working too hard. Molly, My dog, will not eat rich foods anymore or should I say picky as she aged. She will not eat joint chews at all, she used to. I have heard of taurine but not enough to use it.
I found it, believe me, there is a lot of replies on this subject. I live in a rural area with only 2 grocery stores. I cannot find beef heart or Liver, unless it is a big package. I was told too much liver is not good. Sardines at the time of feeding, meaning do not add them until your dishing out the rest? I think I would vomit at the smell of sardines. I love Dr.Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl, it is easy and loaded with many natural veggies. On his site if you read the ingredients it has the best natural veggies and other ingredients that are healthy including dandelion. I find mixing a couple scoops of that to boiled chicken, or Turkey, is good for Molly. She does not seem to like beef as much. Also due to her age she will not eat food with a squirt of good Salmon Oil anymore as she is getting older and we get a little fussier.
Are you talking about “recent replies”? Sorry but I am new here. I clicked on a lot of them that had your name and said “Low Sodium Beef Dog food”. I see our conversations mainly.
CathyB, Where is the low sodium recipe? I do not see it. Thanks
I have e-mailed Dr.Judy Morgan and bought one of her books. Unfortunately, the book only had a couple paragraph’s about the heart in her book. I e-mailed her but did not get anywhere with here. Not sure why. But I will check out her recipes.Thanks
There are many people using Ubquinol and Hawthorne supplements on their dogs with heart issues and they say their dog is doing better. Just checking here as this is an informative site. Hoping someone has some input on this.
I tried to look up on that link you gave me and call me stupid but what I did see I could not understand. Molly saw a vet today for a paw she has been licking like crazy. He said her heart murmur is #4 out of 6. But believe me he had no knowledge of what to feed her or supplement her with.
My Pom just had an echocardiogram. I will know more Monday. But she did not have one until last October. I did get a reply here saying nothing can help. Is that true?
