For puppies it does not really matter much. Give food, ad some intestines from chicken, beef, or pork. Or mix some vegatables in the food. Long beans, carrots, cabbage is OK, better avoid Garlic, Onions, and peppers.  You can cook, or steam the vegatables short. Never cook bones.  Giving cat food to dogs is no problem, they like it, and it has healthy contents.

 

Maybe wait a while till (if) WW kicks in.

 

Good luck!

That's pretty terrible advice.  The the high protein content in cat food is inappropriate for dogs and stresses their liver and kidneys.

 

If you give it very occasionally, probably not a problem.  But it's certainly a no-no on a regular basis.

Thank you so very much for adopting a soi dog.  Sounds like you are prepared to take the best care possible which is appreciated by those of us trying to help the critters.  Have 8 here at the house and shop as well help take care of 25+ at a local temple.  Helps them and makes me feel good as well.

Feed our 2 dogs the cheap dry dog food in clear plastic bags off the market - no idea what brand it is.. sometimes its different shapes or colours... just which ever one is the cheapest.  

 

Also they have our left over food, and the occasional treat of fried chicken or sausages when we take them to the bar at the local market.

 

Going on for 12 years old now and very healthy, not fat, perfect coat and teeth.  

 

Not dewormed them since they were puppies, and no signs they have worms.  Never had fleas either.  

 

The only medication I give them is spot on friproline to the back of their neck once every 1 or 2 months. This has stopped them getting any ticks (as they like to run about in the rice fields and forests at the back of our house where they socialise with the local Thai village dogs and on of them get a tick disease parasite when she was 1... so don't want that again!  

 

Exercise them every day for 1 - 2 hours walk, run alongside my bicycle.  A bored or overactive dog is one that will bark, chew stuff and get into trouble.

I beg to differ. I see no Bull Terrier. Looks like a standard Thai mongrel i.e. no recognised breed.

They are wrong, doesn't look like one at all:
