What food do you feed your dog?

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

I fed Kodiak that same food... for about 3 weeks before I realized it was too rich for him and causing more D than I wanted to pick up in the yard

Glad you found something that agrees with Kodiak. It's funny how some dogs can eat absolutely anything and have no issues yet others are more sensitive.

I cant win with Zorba. Every food I try makes him itchy, scratchy...and stink. This last food Eukaneba Boxer Blend specially formulated for Boxers is crap.

14 years as a K9 officer in south Florida I can tell you that Iams Eukanuba was the best. No waste, small bowel movements and no skin issues. I now have a 13 month old GSD which I imported from Germany prior to retirement and she gets Eukanuba once a day (2 cups) with no issues. She is getting the muscle and has a ton of energy.

For you guys with dogs that have ear bacteria try putting plain yogurt in their food twice a month. You can also clean the ear with plain yogurt as long as you wipe out the ear and get the yogurt out. The natural bacteria in the yogurt cleans the ear out very well.

Russ - did you ever try making your own food. My GSD is now 9 years old and has been on a steady diet of fresh meats (liver, ground beef and chicken leg quarts) and fish (she gets lots of shark, False Albacore and such in the summer) since a puppy. No issues and still in really great health.

I mix up 10 quart batches with some quality dry food as filler and freeze them. Much cheaper then any quality commercial food and teh dog does better on it.

I 2nd the yogurt advice. Never had any digestive issues but will give the dog yogurt every once in while - she likes it!

My huskies have been on Iams (Lamb Meal & Rice) since they were pups, and they're 10 & 11 yrs old now. I'll occasionally give them a different type of dry food, but it'a always Iams. As stated above, their stools are smaller & firmer, and they're healthy. Any other foods I've tried gave them a real mean case of the backdoor trots. This new Shitzu puppy we have is on Iams now. :)

if your dag has a weight maintenance problem it is a real possibility he has a inactive thiriod, have him tested by your vet. I have a Eng. pointer who has a weight problem and I supliment his food with raw tater peels (which he loves) fresh vegies either raw or steamed and raw beef trimmmings when I can get them. Go slow though with small quanities at a time till he ges used too the supliments. Feeding wet is another that will help digestion. Also a dog that eats real fast and gulps his food has a tendency to not digest the food well therefore can have a weight problem because he is loosing it through the stool. This is common when there are others around.
