What do you feed your dog?


The healthiest choice for pets is a diet of real food. Despite that, most people continue to buy dry food with few vitamins but lots of dyes and preservatives. What do you think the best thing for your dog is, or do you just buy whatever is convenient?

    The ingredients sound great, but they have to be adulterating it somehow to keep it on the shelf. The food you cook at home sounds a lot healthy. AAFCO standards can be met by anything;not every dog meal needs to be nutritionally complete.Mine are no

    I think it is MAAN too.Unfortunately, most responses are not from people making up their own diet,even though it is no more work.

    Thnx,I wish everyone would read your hub to realize it does not take much time and effort to put together a dog´s food.I just do so once a week and freeze the ingredients.No, it is not as convenient as a bag of kibble, but my dogs are worth the effor

    I do not eat meat often but do buy it every week for my dogs. It is not more expensive than commercial dog food, but it is more work.It does sounds like your dog is lucky to have found you!

    Yes, but just because some website suggests a processed powder, that does not mean you are doing the best thing for your dogs health.How would you feel if you had to eat powder every day?Real food is better.
