The Alpha Dog doesn't care much for common dog food.  He likes KFC pretty well.  He turned up his nose at his dog food, which I feel is quality.  Kibbles and Bits, sometimes Little Caesar or other canned goodies that looked good.  NO!  You expect me to eat that?

But the Alpha Dog had severe rashes.  The vet gave him a shampoo and the groomer agreed to bath him twice a week.  But really, it didn't completely heal. 

I heard an ad for vitamins that would cure everything, and ordered it.  Well, it was OK, I guess.  They recommended dietary changes.  I read the ideas. Hmmm...

I tried the raw hamburger diet.  He doesn't prefer raw meat.  He likes it cooked.  Plus, really, it seemed like he should have some fiber.

So he's now getting egg foo yung made from home grown sprouts, hamburgers with grilled onions mixed in, or roasted chicken.  Truth be told, it actually doesn't cost a lot more than the dog food did.  But the preparation is more involved.  Once a week is "make the dog food" evening.  Then I warm it in the microwave later. 

BTW The egg foo yung is probably the most nutritious and the cost is less than dog food.  It surprised me that he likes sprouts.  Oh, and in the evening, one Oscar Mayer weiner.  These are a good buy compared to treats in the doggie ailse. 

The amazing thing is that his rashes are completely gone.  His coat is gorgeous and glossy.  He loves his diet.

Hi Miss MC!

Nice to hear from you.  I saw the cool photos you took in Egypt.  I just felt like I detracted from some of the beauty by my message.  I haven't mastered that quote thing.  I think I'll quit using it.  

I have had one kitty.  It was the most beautiful kitty in the world.  I think I fed it fancy feast.  My knowledge of cat diet needs is full of holes.  

I read an article once about the dietary need of a cat.  It ended by saying, "The perfect diet for a cat is mouse....but it should be cooked."

I don't have much experience with dogs although best friend used to have one. I do know they like to eat all sorts. When getting my kittens I was looking at all the different brands of food. Some hugely expensive, some mid range and some cheap. With my last cat I gave him whiskers. He lived till he was 21, so thats the brand I have chosen for the kittens. Although just like with my last cat they will get treated to fish, cooked chicken etc every now and then. What I didn't realise until recently is that cats can eat all sorts. I was looking through a book I spotted on recipes for cats and some of the stuff I would of thought would be too much for them however according to the book its fine. Like scrambled egg for instance. I would never think to give that to a cat.

Hello Be Positive,

Dog food by Rachael Ray?  I'm going to check that out.  It's interesting to hear that "the Alpha Dog," (Scottie) isn't the only one with rashes that are connected to diet.  I'm really glad to have gotten to the bottom of it.  Thank you.

I have 3 dogs.......one was getting too fat and another started having rash issues.  I was feeding them Beneful at the time.  I started to investigate dog food and what was in them and was shocked at the results!!!  You can google it!!

Anyway I started to give them the dog food made by Rachael Ray and started to notice results almost immediately.  She uses all natural foods and no fillers or nasty preservatives.   They love it!!    I think it is terrible what they put in food these days (human or animal foods).   I spend half my time reading labels before I buy but worth it at the end.

 

Hope this helps!!

:-D  Thanks Diana!  I really wish I had started doing this a long time ago.  It might have saved some vet bills.  I don't spoil my dog!  LOL
