Hi everyone... i would likeyou to read your ingredients on your dog food... if it says corn it is horrible for them... Corn can not be digested. Corn Meal cant be digested. If you want your pets on a good food, the first six ingredients must be good for them and most foods at Petsmart and so on are all filler foods... make them gain weight... and not good for their immune system... Holistic is great and it is what they are made to eat...

Are your dobes vegetarian or carnivores? If you answer vegitarian im gonna just Roll on the floor... because your dogs are Carnivores they need meat and protien... Science Diet....Purina... Plan Royal Canin doesnt have that... they have fillers which are hard for your dogs to digest...so lets go read our ingredients and think about changing our food because anything other than meat and some other foods are bad for your dogs...

Corn has NO nutritional value... it cant be digested... ugh... who wants to poop whole Kernels of corn... OUCH :eek2:

let me know what you are feeding... ill let you know if it is good... i work at a holistic food store...

Food question for white and blue. The deposit is in for the puppy. I haven't totally decided on a food yet. It's down to Solid Gold Wolf Cub, I'll add some sea meal to the food, or Innova Large Breed puppy, or a raw all natural that I'll be purchasing from www.aplaceforpaws.com. I'll be adding extra vitamin C to whichever food I choose. Your thoughts please.
Jim great idea thinking about vitamins... but you shouldnt worry so much just about Vitamin C... Omega 3, 6, and 9 are the essential fatty acids to make your dog grow properly and help their skin and immune system function properly....

Innova Large Breed is awesome... add oil to it... such as Salmon Oil or some oil that your local holistic store has and recommends that has all those Omegas in it.... ill also check out the site you provided see if they have any great oils for you.... RAW is always best to go with because that is how they were in the wild. but you cant just change them over you have to take your time and do it properly... but both are great. Innova is awesome... so i think which ever you choose here is going to help you out so much... and help YOUR DOG immensely.... :D hope that helps

I know that corn isn't good, however of course you think holistic is best, you work at a holistic food store...... I know holistic is good though, maybe just your wording is the turnoff. "I'll tell you what's good...." The approach of asking us a retorical question (is your dog a vegitarian?) for one, if someone actually thought their dog was, then what they need is educated not told that you will fall to the floor laughing at their stupidity basically.

I'm sure your intentions are well meant, however, the approach was not very personable.....

no no... i dont think holistic is best... i like raw personally now... my dobes love it but they are having issues transitioning from ughy Science Diet... because they like the taste of Science Diet... So... it is wierd for them.... and no i didnt say stupidity... and i would never call someone stupid for not knowing LOL... there are words for that and stupid isnt one of them.... Stupid is disrespectable, has no integrity, and is pitiful use of words and ignorance and that is something i dont do UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY... because im not low like that... HEHEHEHE

okay fill in the ignorant- just exactly what do you call holistic food. holism is studying an organism as a whole. Where does that make 'holistic' food different to RAW or scientifically analised formulas. Plus what are the qualifications of the person formulating the holistic foods in your store.

pass the salt ;-)

because holistic foods have veggies in them... raw doesnt HEHEHEHE.... the qualifications that we have set up are that no additives or any dies... no food enhancers, fillers as well as lots of other technical stuff isnt added. Holistic food is meat and veggies... Raw is meat.... that is the difference...

Science diet.... scientifically analyzed foods.... have fillers and additives in them...Corn cant be digested by us or dogs....nor can corn meal... there are so many additives,,, pesticides, chemicals in those foods because they come from AAFCO companies saying our food is safe... but okay it may be but does it have ethoyquin, which is BHA or BHT... which is BAAAAAAD for dogs... so if your dog food has in the top six ingredients corn, corn meal, animal digest, animal fats i suggest change or dont buy it because those things dont digest well and/or dont give any nutrition to your dog...

hope that helps if not let me know... ill scan some stuff and send it to you if i can :D

To me remarking that you would roll on the floor at the wrong answer is insinuating(sp?) "stupidity" at someone basically. Once again, as I said, I'm sure your intentions are well meant. Just the wording.
see that is what ppl get for not reading what i said and making things up.... this is what happens when ppl do that... not pointing fingers but darn lol

white and blue. If I feed the Innova Large Breed and add the omega fatty acids that you suggested can I/should I still add the Solid Gold Sea Meal with flaxseed??

Jim you should... and that will help there skin... but follow the directions perfectly... dont give to much or to little.. but yes definately... what color dobes do you have? you may also try bathing in tree tea oil and aloe vera shampoo.... it is all natural and great for the skin. I love it but some dogs are allergic to teatreeoil... so be careful if you use it.... but you are doing great... :D

That is awesome to hear that you are feeding your dog what is right and good for him or her :D

just as nice it is to know you are on a variety of boards with the same old lies, assumptions you cannot prove, and misinformation!! still waiting for that paper, dear...
the fact remains when someone challenges your outrageous claims, you cannot provide information and instead you resort to calling names, making up more lies, and then packing up your toys and going home.

so youve worked in a pet store now for a few days and all of a sudden youre a pro? :)


so what do you feed for the raw diet?

Nope been there for a while as a volunteer but nothing permanent till i left to see my uncle...

but i do my research... i dont talk crap all day and then not have facts to back em up... LOL funny doberkim...you make laugh no matter where you are at...

This thread has gone way off topic lets try and steer it back shall we?

Lil Arrow,

Check out Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul http://www.chickensoupforthepetloverssoul.com/ I am currently feeding my 2 year old this and she loves it. I noticed a big difference in her coat after having her on this food, no more dandruff and she put on a few pounds that she needed.

I am not sure about the Corn and Wheat in it so you better check their website for details.

DA

have you checked the top six ingredients. if it doesnt have corn animal fat, animal digest , or any hole grains in it you are good... but those are a few of the things that dont digest at all..

One thing to also consider is to call the copany ask if the food cantains additives.... the company will say we are AAFCO safe... tell them so... we need to know if the company before you go the meat had additives. and you want to know..dont let anyone push you around.... make them tell you if the food has additivies... HEHEHE hope i could help alittle

I was told that if you give a dog bread it will make them gain weight... but my experience has been that it will also clogg them up... there alot of high calorie holistic foods that will help gain weight... and gunner im glad im not the only person who has noticed that :D hugs gunner...

Actually I beg to differ, it does coat their stomach. Vet's recommend it if you suspect your dog may have gotten into poison and already vomited it up and not in a state of emergency, they tell you to give milk because coats and settles the stomach. But obviously yes if you over "milk" they do potty more.

I completely understand your vet... i thought it did too... but maybe i will ask the vet also if it coats if you dont give alot... cause i know if you give to much you will have the runs all over... so you may be correct in that since... i will see so i can know also but YOU MAY VERY WELL BE CORRECT that alittle will coat the stomach if they have a stomach ache :D hugs lexus
