Home of the fuzzy puppy....
What we feed our dogs influences not only their health and well being, but their coat, teeth and general body smell.
I am seriously surprised how many manufacturers make, and people feed, products that contain corn, cornmeal and corn gluten. As children we loved corn. My mother grew up on a dairy farm and would always tell us, 'corn is for cows. It has no nutritional value for people'. It tastes great and fills the stomach, add to our general weight gain but does not actually stay in the body long.
It is an inexpensive filler.
Wheat are another product that dogs do not need on a daily basis and are for herbivore. Dogs are carnivores, meat eaters and thrive on it.
The less filler used in a food, the better grade the food, the less waste your dog will have and the less waste you will pick up in the yard. The less your dog will need to eat to achieve optimal body weight and health.
One of my puppy owners pointed out that the dogs have less 'doggie' smell when on a good meat based diet.
My dogs get raw every night. They can graze on Flint River and/or Earthborn kibble during the day. Their bedtime meat is raw pork or chicken or beef, occasionally fish. Raw NEVER cooked, bones and all. The bones, uncooked are soft and digestible. Cooked they are brittle and splinter.
