    Default Dog Food

    Hi Guys

    Did anyone catch ACA a few nights ago? There was a story about a guy who "invented" his own dog food. He was a dog breeder but I can't for the life of me remember what dog beed or even his name. the dog food contained yoghurt in it and they said it was available at your local supermarket but we couldn't see it there.

    We were thinking we might give it a go as it was suppossed to make dogs wee freindly to grass. Something to do with neutralising the amonia in the dogs urine.

    Hi Huskymum,

    A lot of breeders and dog-owners give their dogs yoghurt, have done for well...probably centuries. You can give it to them, or add it to their food in any way you prefer.

    Yoghurt doesn't alter urine acidity or alkilinity though?? Yoghurt works on the gut, not the bladder. I have heard apple cider vinegar works but have never tried it.

    Apple cider vinegar works extremely well in humans, but have no knowledge re dogs/other animals.

    Yohgurt works in the dog the same way as in us humans - as stated above, in the gut. However, it would be intersting if someone here could explain EXACTLY where and how it works. For example, in humans yoghurt (being acidophilis) is also used in um...other tracts for um...other maladies *cough cough*

    Anybody with a good factual knowledge of this. Ppl hear o much about it, could be good to be further educated.

    ACV is used for birds, though it is said to get the kind from health food shops not supermarket. I am pretty sure it is good for all.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    we were told by breeder to give sumo ACV (with mother). It ended up giving him bleeding bowels, so we quickly stopped that again

    If it is the grass burn that is your main concern, maybe you could try dog rocks? They worked for me. It seems to be mainly bitches that burn the grass I have noticed.
