WFMW - homemade dog food

In light of the recent dog food recalls, I have taken the plunge and started making dog food for one of our dogs. She has always had a sensitive stomach and recently it's gotten worse. After speaking with our vet, I know give her the following mixture

1 cup cooked chicken (you can use any type of meat here, chicken was on sale this week)
1 cup cooked white rice (you can also substitute other grains here)
1/2 cup vegetables (any except onions)
1 crushed dog vitamin

In the last few days since I started this, her demeanor is great and no upset stomach. It's like she's a puppy again. If you choose to do this with any of your animals, please consult your vet first to find out the nutritional needs of your animal. One day I need to sit down and break down the cost to see if this is better than the ultra expensive sensitive formula dog food she was eating.

I made homemade dog food, too! I use pasta instead of rice, but it's pretty much the same recipe. My dogs love it. Sometimes if I'm super busy I have to give them canned food and my little dog, Gramps, just isn't that into it. But when I give him the good stuff, he usually licks his bowl clean. I stick to a whole foods diet, so I feel I should at least try that with my dogs. For me, it's really not any more expensive than buying the canned stuff and it's better for them!

I have fed my dogs a RAW diet for a while...all natural, and usually MUCH cheaper than the "bag-o-junk" Dogs can eat raw chicken (bones & all) just like wild dogs (ie wolves). seems they were all healthier & in better spirits when on this diet. (Oh, and another plus...the yard clean-up always seemed easier...they use what they are eating...less waste!!)

But in a business where only one out of three films is profitable, a costly bomb can still sink a studio. [url=]canada goose parka sale[/url] Smithwick's Sons, Kilkenny, Eire. He then begins painting a riddle on a rock: Saving the world is up to you, find you fortune, that's the clue. Everyone knows that people cannot state that an appetite suppressant pill is completely safe with no approval from Food and drug administration.
Back in the 1960s, rock was dominated by pop bands like The Beatles; heavy, bluesy rock groups like Led Zeppelin; and psychedelic bands like The Jefferson Airplane. Wisely, Timberland didn't just coast along on the newfound strength of its name at the expense of quality. [url=]canada goose for sale[/url]
