Nutrition: What Do I Feed My Own Dogs?

September 19, 2010

 Stats say 85% of the Dogs Today Are Dying From Cancer

Many of my customers know that I’m totally a health nut when it come to the health, care & nutrition of dogs.    Frequently and for years now, I’m up at 4:00 or 5:00 a.m. reading and researching nutrition, health, training and care of our canine family.  I attend seminars and training. Here at Doggie Care Resort, we host periodic seminars on dog health plus other subjects and feature vets, nutritionists, other trainers, canine adoption agencies & other canine professionals.

The nutrition problems for our dogs is serious today with some statistics stating that 85% of our dogs are dying from cancer.  If this is correct,  that’s highly alarming.   Given that we as owners have a lot of control over what our dogs are eating, we owe it to them to make every attempt to give them the best possible foods.  I have heard people say that they don’t want to spend the money for upgraded foods, but the alternative is to have higher vet bills, sick dogs and to lose their dogs sooner.  Believe me, “Spend the Money on Better Foods”.

So, the most common question I get is “What Do I Feed My Own Dogs?”  

Here is my personal list of foods for my dogs, Maddie & Woofe:

Mornings:   White, organic chicken (no skin-no fat); splash of Wild Alaskan Fish Oil (I don’t buy local fish oils since they are too contaminated); 3/4 tsp. of Sojo;  additional veggies; wholesome kibble; 2T wholesome canned food all mixed with a small bit of warm water to make a stew.

Dinner:  White chicken meat, Electrolytes, 1/2 tab Glucosamine for my older dog; tab Vitamin, one T canned pumpkin or yellow squash, one T no fat-no sugar cottage cheese, dash of Enzymes & Probiotics, dash of Seameal plus a dash of my own dinner veggies such as string beans, sweet potato, broccoli.    Please see my article Nutritious Human Food for Dogs plus my other articles on health and training.  We encourage your comments and questions.
