152660 tn?1291755571 I'm considering starting homemade food diet for the cats and puppy. I know there are a few of you that do your own food so I wanted to ask a few questions. :) Some will be opinions but with the research everyone here has done I probably trust you more than the vet at times. 1. Oliver has Kidney disease and the vet put him on the Science Diet KD food- DRY (I know, I know- I hate science diet and he needs moisture not dry) and he won't eat the canned. All 3 really like that food.
Avatar m tn And after learning that dry food is not good enough and dogs and cats, especially cats, require certain amounts of moisture in their food I have switched all 3 dogs and 2 cats to a homemade raw food using Dr Becker's Real Food for healthy dogs and cats recipes. You can read more about the issue you are dealing with on dr Becker's site. www.
Avatar f tn The safest diet for dogs is regular, commercially available dog food. I have 3 large breed dogs, and almost never give them any people food. They don't "need" it, and people food often helps contribute to canine obesity, if overdone.
Avatar n tn weekends they get treated to raw diced meat as dogs get certain enzymes from raw meat that helps with there digestive system. Make sure it is fresh I buy and feed same day! vegies should only be carrots,beans,cauliflower and broccoli onions, corn , peas can upset dogs digestive system and onions are toxic to dogs. My dogs are healthy and happy from this diet and coats are shiny and they tend to have less odour when fed this way!

Avatar n tn Your cat should be given prescription food like C/D or Science Diet. BUT, if you do not want to use prescribed food, then think of what a cat with UTI needs the most: water to flush and get rid of bacteria. So, the more water the better. Canned food can be good for her. There is a commercial brand very good for cats called Natural Balance. It is expensive but it's got no by-products, fillers or preservatives, at least the label is free from those.
Avatar f tn I transitioned from prescription food to limitied diet canned food to homemade, but not raw. My dogs also have allergies/sensitivities. I've found that since they've been on the homemade, their vomiting and diahhrea have all but stopped.
Avatar n tn What kind of allergies does your cat have? If she's allergic to food, you may want to try a natural diet. It's a hassle to deal with raw meat but it pays off, there are recipes for that online. You can make a whole batch and freeze the rest and feed it to her gradually. It's also cheaper than buying cat food. If it's not food allergies, you may want to try a natural(raw) diet anyway- it will raise her immunity and perhaps relieve her allergies.
Avatar f tn Hello, I just stumbled upon this group while continuing my week long research into kidney failure. My dog Blu (an english setter) was diagnosed with kidney failure about 10 days ago. His Creatinine level was a 7 and his BUN was 111, so he was admitted and spent 4 days on IV fluids in the hospital. After the fluids his Creatinine level was down to about a 6 but his BUN was up to a bit (I don't remember the exact number) and he was also anemic.
Avatar f tn She will be 8 weeks and I have no idea what to feed her except that I would want her to start eating raw food diet. Wonder if she will be able to transform without gettin sick.? Any ideas? Thanks.
Avatar m tn If you are going to feed a raw diet, you might want to look into the BARF diet, which includes raw, meaty bones. There's a lot of information on the internet about BARF that you can look up. Raw meaty bones will provide calcium and will also help to keep the teeth clean. Whether you end up with the BARF diet or some other type of diet, it needs to be a diet that is balanced for a dog's needs. There are pro's and cons to feeding raw bones.
Avatar f tn Nutro is OK, (better than many other supposedly good dog foods) but you have to read labels, as some of the Nutro varieties contain corn or wheat. The best diet for a dog is a raw food diet, as the raw food contains enzymes that canines (meat eaters) need for overall health. Dogs were meant to eat raw meat, rather than cooked cuisine. You can make your own raw food, (google for a raw meat recipe, or buy a book about holistic dog care), or you can buy it already made.
Avatar f tn I highly recommend making your dogs food... it's a little more time consuming but at least you will know what's going in there. Plus, you can experiment a little more - I was always very generous with the meat and pasta vs. the eggs. Daisy would get so excited when she saw me grabbing the container from the fridge! Good luck to you and your dog!
Avatar m tn I have a 2 year old teacup Schnauzer & recently changed her diet to a raw diet. We used Stella & Chewy's raw food. The first week she did great, the second week she began vomiting, sometimes food, other times white foamy stuff. She laid around for about 2 or 3 days, but still had an appetite, loved her new food & drank the normal amount.
1360237 tn?1351816181 Water is the best drink in the world really. I don't think I prefer any other drink (but like mine sparkling!) Dogs are happy with water. Don't use milk. They don't need juices, and never ever should have any sodas as they mostly contain caffeine, and can contain artificial sweeteners which can be dangerous for dogs. There are different schools of thought when it comes to raw meat. I feel it is natural, but you have to be very careful about what KINDS of raw meat.
Avatar n tn The best diet in the world for a dog is a raw food diet. This is the way nature intended our dogs to eat and thrive for many healthy years. It's when we start introducing too many cooked, processed foods into their diet is when we create many problems. If you've never heard or thought about feeding a raw based diet, you should research it some more. It contains all the "live" nutrients and moisture dogs need to thrive.
482754 tn?1341791494 Only Prescription Diet® a/d® Canine/Feline food, Prescription Diet® n/d® Canine and Prescription Diet® s/d® Canine foods cannot be made into homemade treats using the above recipe. However, you can use the following recipe for homemade treats for these foods: Roll the canned food into little balls and place in the freezer to serve later as a frozen treat. Since it is not possible to bake n/d® Canine into treats, this is a great alternative.
1916673 tn?1420233270 I have now added a useful Vegetable Nutrition Data file to my own website which should help owners work out which are the best vegetables to add to a home cooked diet regime for their kd dogs. You can access this document under the Blog section of my website at www.tonyboothwriter.com This is a PDF file, so you can also download it or print it to read or reference at your convenience.
215816 tn?1212490407 Reglan is good for some dogs however I myself have a dog with major digestive and intestinal issues and reglan makes him puke so it could be that but contrary to some opinions raw diets can cause e coli, salmonella, etc. infections. Also dogs eating a raw diet can shed these bacteria in their scales which can affect humans. As a vet tech whenever a dog on raw diet comes in we ALWAYS suit up with protection.
Avatar f tn The EVO has fruit and vegies in it and the enzymes dogs would normally get from a raw diet, but I still chop up all kids of veggies and add to his dish. I also give him one of my multi vitamins from Shaklee, but you can ask your vet for some. You can read more about dog and cat nutrition on the internet. One good site is www.drkarenbecker.com click on dog and cat nutrition.
