What's in Your Pet's Food Dish?

What's in Your Pet's Food Dish?

Yum! It's time for one of the high points in your pet's day... mealtime! But, there are so many options, so many labels to read, and what does it all mean? Most people choose their pet's food very carefully and only switch diets gradually, to add supplements, or if health problems develop. I know it's not an easy decision to make, but I wanna hear about it from you!

I think I have the only cat that hates wet food. However, the cat loves scraps, so I'll give her a little chicken or a small piece of cheese as a treat.

My cats eat the wet food only when it's new and fresh. If they don't eat it up they won't eat it the rest later... so I give them only dry food cause it can stay in their dish all day.

I used to feed my pooch natural balance, but after speaking with the Holistic vet about my dog's recurring skin issues he said to take him off of that and make him homeade food or buy I can't remember what brands of food because it could be a wheat allergy. So now I make him brown rice, peas, carrots, sometimes sweet potatoes, and I buy the organic 100% Turkey or Chicken in the cans to mix in with it. Also throw in a few spoons of missing link. My dog loves it and his coat looks great.

Ocean Blue, not Ocean Blus!

My Rocco gets Timberwolf, Ocean Blus is his favorite. I hear Timberwolf is coming out with more Wet food varieties, which I may try as a special treat. I also hear they are coming out with a treat (seafood) as well. I did buy some raw food to try out, I just haven't got around to defrosting it!

MandyJoBo= that's kind of a broad statement some animals have very sensitive stomachs and don't fair well on wet food and as much as I would love to put my dog on an organic diet I can't afford organic food for my self - let alone my dog.

natural balance is good too. i give them wet in the morning and dry throughout the day. vet's... know what they're doing but they also have other interests. they recommend Science Diet because they GET PAID TO, not because it is good for your cat. Because the dry food is not.

Mandy Jo - most veterinary schools require nutrition courses for entrance. So, not entirely true!

mixture of dry and wet food just to reduce the monotony of their diet

It's so sad to see how many people have their pets on a dry food diet. I'm puzzled by the people who said their vets recommended it; Vets aren't nutritionists and don't take nutrition courses in their education. They are only taught about nutrition from the sales people that sell them the food they stock in their offices. My cats used to be on a raw food diet, but we had to make a four-hour round trip each week to get organic meat. I haven't gotten around to checking the city I live in now. They eat Innova EVO (the best) dry food in-between meals, and I feed them half a small can of Natural Balance each, 4x a day. I'm trying to find a better canned food that they will eat, but it's not going so well. They've tried Wellness, Merrick Gourmet, Innova, Newman's Own, and a few brands of packaged raw food diets. They are so picky!!

i loooooove Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul. I know its a weird name but its absolutely the best dry cat food I have found for my cat. I am so picky about this - my cat eats better than I do. :)

We got into the routine of spoiling our dogs with a little dry mixed with a little wet, and and egg yolk. However, Abby started getting sick everyday and we couldn't figure it out. Yea, that was right before all of the recalls, so we went back to dry only. Poor thing is lucky she's fat and didn't have kidney failure.

2/3 dry food=Solid Gold and Holistic Food by Castor and Pollux. 1/3 wet food=Holistic Chicken&Rice food by Eagle Pack. I only give my babies the most natural food I can find. On weekends sometimes I'll cook for them and they go bananas! :dog:

In the mornings dry. Evenings hes becoming meat. Homemade on the weekends and out a tin. He don't like it when he becomes to often the homemade things, so he becomes his tins in the weekdays. Its easier for me to.

I wish I could feed my animals a raw/live food diet. I am trying to feed my family raw/live and it's about all I can do to keep that going. I'm still new at it.

domino and chewy get hill's indoor hairball formula. for some reason my little one loves the big kibbles. when i bought the wrong kind (and dumped the bag in the food container with what was remaining of the previous bag), he ate around the small kibbles, picking out the larger ones. silly cat! they also love greenies, so they each get a small pile about once a week.

My kittens get dry food in their bowl all day, so they can eat it whenever they want. And, in addition, I feed them two packets of wet food a day, which they freaking snarfle down. They really love that stuff!

Dry nuts. But sometimes Holly will get some leftovers too if we've had roast for dinner.
