what dog food

I have been using DOG CHOW. I'm starting to think maybe the cheaper bands may work too.

  • Our dogs are on a raw diet that I make for them.For their morning meal they get a portion of raw chicken,sweet potato,green beans, and some apple.These foods have been ground up and put in quart bage and frozen.I make up about 10 pounds of food and it lasts them about aweek to 10 days.For their supper they each get a raw chicken neck --- yes including the bones.As long as the bones are raw they are ok for them to eat,just NO cooked bones.I buy the necks by the case ( 40 pounds) and divide them up and freeze them.the cheap dog foods have to much filler and grains that can cause allergies so you are better off to buy a high quality dog food or feed raw.The grains that are the worst are corn,wheat,and soy.As for the by products --- only the good Lord knows what is used -- road kill,euthanized pets etc.

  • My dog has some kind of food allergy so now I'm buying him Blue Buffalo dog food, which of course is the most expensive but all natural.

  • Don't feed your dog dog chow, ol roy, pedigree, Iams Eukanuba, Science Diet or any of that shit. You'd be better off feeding him the bag the food came in.

    Go to They have all kinds of food reviews for you to check out.

    Don't break the bank to feed your dog, but do better by the dog and feed it something good for him.

    To those feeding your dogs that shit...please, change them.

  • I rotate mine between different "flavors" of Blue Buffalo, Taste of the Wild, and Canidae. When they are finished with their current bag of BB Fish & Sweet Potato, I want to try out something from Wellness. If they like the Wellness and do well on it, I will add it to the rotation.
