Have you ever ran out of dog food? What have you fed your dogs prior to making it to the store to buy more?

We ran out and we live in the country. I thought SO was getting some and he thought I was getting some. Extremely poor communication on our part. We wound up running to the gas station and buying an extremely expensive small bag of dog food for the dogs but I was thinking about cooking up a pound of venison burger for them and mixing some vegies in with it. What have you fed your dogs when you have run out of food?

  • venison would be good to I think it's really low in fat. I would mix with rice to just to cut the grease even more and make it more filling.

  • oooh! They will LOVE venison! That won't be too tough on the tummy either. I've done chicken, hot dogs, ground beef, turkey, roast beef, scrambled eggs, potatoes.

  • Pasta, rice w/ meat, tuna fish, bread, veges. Any type of left overs that aren't too greasy. Do you have any regular dog treats that you can feed them? My dogs especially loved the pasta but watch out if they're sloppy eaters! Red sauce is a pain to get off the walls and a white dog. lol

  • I ran out of food today, so I was racking my brain as to what to feed the pupp.
    I'd feed her shredded chicken not seasoned and veggies.

  • Let cool and air dry for 24 hrs before starting to dry and harden, otherwise they will become moldy. They can be stored in the freezer for months. Food coloring can be added for seasonal variety. Freashly baked biscuts can. Be eaten by humans as is.
    Stale biscuts need to be dunked in your fave warm beverage. You and your dog. Will love them.
    Do not bake 2 trays on different levels of the oven the bottom one will burn!
    Cookies can touch on tray as some willl shrink a lil.
