I am all about natural food for both humans and pets. My concerns are additives, preservatives, food made in china, etc...you get the picture. I read a while ago, that there was a lawsuit against a company where pets died due to salmonella (and more likely, the preservatives that were added to the food).
I instinctively sought to feed Wyot the best puppy food...and chose Taste of the Wild. No grains for this little one. I must have read, albeit later, that this is the food Kim feeds the pups (I think). I am adding a few pureed greens (a tablespoon) and in his water, I add some of my own Nettles infusion, and he gobbled it up pronto, and seems to be doing well on all of this. I'd like to try and make more of my own food for him, in proportion to the dry (ie, adding it in), and would like to know nutritionally, raw is better than cooked protein, but is it ok to feed him some cooked? I do, of course, get gmo & hormone free meats. What about bones? I have read that it is actually really good to give pups and dogs bones (chicken, beef, pork etc) to chew on. I'd love to, and aside from the marrow bones that I fill myself for his treats, what bones are safe for him to have?
My lab had digestive problems (of course, she ate just about anything she shouldn't have), and I did make her rice and some bland mixes with her Science diet, which at the time, I thought and was told by the vet was the best. Since then, I have learned a lot more about quality food for them, especially with most of the food being outsourced nowadays!
As for treats, I make my own for him, with chicken broth, gmo free flour, flaxseed and/or wheat germ. He loves them, and tolerates it well.
Any and all suggestions appreciated!
