Here is my poor boy without a haircut! Oh MY how miserable he must of been.
|My Boy named Cody|
This is in memory of my 11.5 year old Newfoundland who had so much personality. Recently, I lost my boy to cancer. I tried so hard to save him but it wasn't to be.
While trying to find something he could eat, and it would stay down. I explored so many holistic, organic, and homemade dog foods.
The Veterinarian did not recommend the cheap dog foods at the supermarket nor would he say which ones I should choose.
I fed him Science diet Prescription dog food from the Veterinarians office ( by prescription only) but, at 30 bucks for twelve cans. My boy would need four cans a day for his size dog if he could eat it.
It wasn't financially something, most people could afford. ( Including myself. ) So, that is why I have listed some of the dog and cat foods below.
At one point I went to Tractor Supply to see all the different kinds of dog foods. As I read their ingredients, the one I liked is called 4 Health. It is actually made by Tractor Supply. It seem to be closest to some of the great ingredients they had in the can of prescription dog food that I was paying so much for at a more economical price.
My big old boy loved the chicken flavor with rice and I loved it had all those vitamins and minerals in it that they require for good health. Plus the first ingredients started with chicken and chicken broth...You Gotta love that.
I have copied some the dog foods that I found in different places.
Please check with your Veterinarian to see if he/she approves of any of these before proceeding.
I found out a lot about those commercial brand dog foods. So here are some homemade ones that are from book of (Ann N. Martin, Protect your Pet. ) I hope this helps you and your pet. Your dog or cat doesn't have to be sick to be changed to this type of diet.
