Thread: Vegetables for the Pup?

  1. #11

    My dogs get a mix of chicken mince, sardines, tuna, turkey wings, beef/roo mince (only Phi as Keira is beef intolerant), chicken carcasses, chicken necks, 1 - 2 raw eggs p/w and veggies (sweet potato, pumpkin, carrot, zuchinni, celery) with a little bit of rice. Just be aware dogs bodies don't process rice so really it is just a filler, they only process a little bit of the veggies as well.

    Like Lala said do a little research to make sure you are giving a balanced diet. Try to avoid grains as dogs tend to be intolerant to it.

    I also agree with DiDee dogs stomachs are made to process bacteria so giving a bone time and time again won't hurt. Also the dirt on the bone is good for him, he gets lots of essential vitamins and minerals from dirt.

    I don't give bones but only because Phi is a guts and often doesn't chew properly so it is safer for her not to get bones, Keira will get the odd one though.

    I am similar to Keira, Dont forget some offal, very important. Chicken mince from Leonards is good as has lots of ground up bone. I process heaps vegies and freeze in smaller blocks, fresh fish is great, sardines in oil, splash of omega oil daily, couple spoons natural yogurt a week. I have only started adding rice as a filler since she got to 18months to keep her weight stable as she can be a guts and it fills her up Breeder started her on raw with free feed of kibble, she stopped eating kibble of her own accord at 6 months, exclusively bones and raw now.
    Lots of good advice out there is you want to go raw, I found it easy once I got into a routine, luckily I have a large freezer and bulk buy and then once a week weigh out the weeks allowance and bag into daily portions of bones.

    I don't understand why my dog has such a sensitive stomach. I guess in the bad old days she'd have been drowned as a puppy anyway...

    Now we know more, and we get more upset if our puppy dies when we think we were feeding the right thing.

    If you feed ground chicken carcass mince - do not cook it. I prefer to get human grade meat for my dog because there are no rules about what they put in dog food.

    Raw veggies are always better than cooked, cooking removes as lot of the nutrients.

    Mine get raw carrot, peas, beans and broccoli. I do cook potato as they love a bit of mash through their food on occasion, with gravy of course.

    I tried a veggie garden once but no fence was high enough to keep Prada out, she would do anything to get to the peas.

    I also had the same problem with my 7 week old puppy tony. At the first time I always gave her non vegetable. But after some time I consult with dog physician .he suggest me to give her Vegetable as well. So I would like to say that you should also suggest to the expert dog Physician.

    My dogs love a whole raw carrot and it lasts longer than a pigs ear with my two!Also they love apples though they only get half a one each now and again.
