Food ideas for dog

Recommended Posts

Have a little French Bulldog. She's not keen on dry food. Normally morning feed i make her a soup of chicken breast, pumpkin, garlic, veges, rice etc.afternoon she has raw chicken carcass or necks. Sometimes mornings I alternate soup with scrambled eggs. Anyone have any other ideas. Want to change her diet sometimes

Please don't give her garlic. Garlic & onions are poisonous for dogs. You can try giving her cottage cheese, my dog love it. Dry dog food isn't good for dogs - too highly processed unless you buy the really expensive brands. Tuna & brown rice are also good. My dog loves fish

Our dogs love these Betagro Smoked Sausage cut up in little pieces. Never give them chicken bones.

Dogs don't eat vegetables or other carbs in nature. They are carnivores. They process meat, milk and fat very well. Do you have a crock pot you can fill with cheap cuts of meat and cook until it's falling apart? Some of that and some of the broth will work. The dog doesn't need any spices and especially not onion or garlic which it can't process. You can freeze it in portions and keep some out ahead of time as needed.

There are some canned dog foods that are almost all animal protein but I don't know if you can buy it in LOS.

Sounds like a good idea. I don't know if there are "cheaper" cuts of meat here are there? I mean it's all pretty cheap anyway but what we'd call cheap cuts back home seem to be actually more expensive here.

Buy a good quality dry dog food and add hot water, wait until cold and give to the dog (this will make the food soft and easier to eat). If he/she doesn't eat it at first don't stress out, when hunger the dog will eat. Then once every week or two give the dog a proper hard bone to chew, this will strengthen his/her jaws and provide calcium and keep him/her busy. Anything else is over the top and will make your dog fat and lazy. Remember your dog is not human (although we sometimes think the opposite).

Sorry dogs can eat a vegetarian diet and thrive.

It is true that dogs belong to the order Carnivora, but they are actually omnivores. The canine body has the ability to transform certain amino acids, the building blocks or protein, into others, meaning that dogs can get all the amino acids they need while avoiding meat. Being a lacto-ovo vegetarian does not present many nutritional challenges for people or for dogs. In fact, eggs have the highest biological value of all the protein sources commonly used in pet foods. The biological value of a protein measures its ability to supply the individual amino acids that an animal needs. Eggs are an excellent source of protein for dogs. Even veganism — consuming a diet that does not include any animal products — though a little trickier, is possible for dogs. The right balance of different plant-based sources of protein (e.g., beans, corn, soy and whole grains) can still provide the needed amino acids. So why should non-vegetarians care about this? Because it helps make sense of the confusing information about canine nutrition that exists. Think of it this way, if dogs can live long and healthy lives eating a diet that is made from only plant-based sources of protein, why wouldn’t these ingredients also be appropriate for use in foods that contain meat? Using both animal and plant-based sources of protein in a non-vegetarian dog food makes perfect sense. The only issue I’ve seen with dogs being switched to a vegetarian food is one of acceptance. It seems to me that dogs who are used to eating diets that contain meat go through a "where’s the beef, chicken … etc.?" stage. Overcoming this is easy if you simply mix increasing amounts of the new food in with decreasing amounts of the old and make the change slowly.

If you see film of wild dogs hunting, very often the 1st thing they will eat is the stomach sac of their prey which will be full of plant matter. I'm not a veggie before you spam me. Anyway, if you have a Makro near to you they sell 1kg bags of frozen dogfood in varieties of beef, chicken & liver, pork etc although with a dog as small as a French Bulldog you would probably have to break it up and freeze it in separate portions. We have 2 golden retrievers so 1 bag lasts 2 days mixed with dried dog food. Also we have a Tesco Lotus express nearby and quite often you will find fresh meat being sold off cheap on the last day of the expiry date, 200g of pork mince or chicken breasts for 15 baht so we then buy the lot and freeze it for ourselves and the dogs. As a treat my wife will buy from the weekly markets cooked blood and various other soups and as these tend to be cooked with the bones the dogs find them very tasty and the dried food absorbs it so they eat more of the dried food. Don't give your dogs cooked bones as these can break and cause internal damage. The dogs also love the cheap tins of mackerel in tomato sauce from Big C, nice to give them oily fish as I can't seem to find plain cod liver oil here only orange or some other flavour.

Sounds like you are asking advice for feeding a child... It's a dog! No need variety and change of taste every day.

Preparing a good nutritious fresh meal for a dog is not easy. You should google for the proper way to do it. In any case no spices whatsoever, no onions, garlic. As some have already mentioned, dogs are carnivores, so it should be mostly meat. Dairy products are not health for any adults at all, not even for humans.

I feed my dogs only dry food of good quality (Royal Canine). I spoke with a Vet in Europe who told me that preparing a fresh meal is too much of a hassle, and he also feeds his dogs good quality dry food. According to him there is no much difference between the good brands, so pick 1 that is convenient for you to get.

As mentioned already, I use Royal Canine - this is what the breeder I bought my dog from feeds his dogs, so I just continued with this brand. Now I have some puppies and I have to order food for them in advance as no shop keeps the junior version of this food. Still easy enough.

I give my dog fresh chicken or pork bones everyday in the afternoon. They sell some really soft marrow pork bones cheap.at the markets, might be spine bones? I wonder if cooked long enough these would rend down and soften?

I believe that dry good quality dog food is the best for many reasons.

1) It is not tasty enough for dogs to overeat.

2) Maintains digestion regulated, specially is given one time a day, at the same time.

3) Avoid allergic reactions to some of house foods that are not suitable for animals.

4) Because dogs will eat in less quantities than tasty foods, becomes less expensive in long term.

5) Less vets expenses, maintaining the dog in good shape and health all its life.

6) In some cases, can leave the dog alone for long time, with enough dry food and water, without worries about looking for dog care.

I owned dogs all my life, and just now I got the probe of my opinion. When I was single here I adopted a mid size soi dog, that I kept in dry food because was very convenient for me in many ways. For years he was very healthy and active. Just giving some "snacks" sometimes, like big bones.

When I got married, my wife started giving him house food. Most fish and chicken meat and bones. He got overweight, and with some health troubles. Skin allergies, and muscular pains....until I decided to stop that, and come back to the dry food. Pedigree, beef taste.

In just 2 weeks, every problem was history.

A healthy and happy dog again.

I thought dry food was prone to give dog allergies and while pedigree has a good name it's not really too good. Only what I've read.

Besides, dry dog food here is bloody expensive and by all accounts mostly rice and filler isn't it?
