My 13.5 years old pug had been on a homemade meal diet for all his life.

Always chicken breast meat boiled with a bit of salt and garlic. Sometime chicken liver and heart instead of the breast meat. This meal is for dinner only, in the morning, a lot of stuff from bread, noodle with chicken, rice, milk, cakes, dry dog food........

Basically, he is a glutton, eats anything, my dad never control. I think garlic is a very potent food to kill germs in the dog's body.

Lots of junk food from my dad to the little buddy, sweet made of milk (that rabbit brand).

chances are, if you feed the pet (cat or dog also the same) pedigree, they will go back n eat their own sh*t cos the stuff has so much artifical flavouring inside. wld recommend nutro for those pets that need to maintain their nice long coats, itz smelly enough for them to like it, n ingredients are better than eukanuba's.

as for the special dog chocs, itz just oatmeal that smell like choc n taste like it as well (swear to god, my frn really tried n he liked it!). so if both u n ur dog like chocs, just rem to get extra packet for urself...

natural diet is good (BARF diet) but most dry kibble (aka dog biscuits) are good enough to cover all their nutritional need, unless ur dog got sensitive stomach then must take care lah. but try not to save on the food cos wat goes into the dog's mouth will certainly show up one way or the other =p

My dog is about 11 years old already.

We usually feed him 2 cans of Caesar and some dry food mixed. Also give him some Val syrup (for iron supplement), and also Sasha's Mix (for his joints).

He used to take 500mg (1 capsule) of glucosemine as he has problems climbing up stairs and getting up - his hind legs a bit week.

We started the Sasha mix only 3 days ago, and according to the brochures, it should see some improvement after 10-14 days.

The vet also recommended that we added slices of liver for him.

Does Caesar affect dog and cause it to drop fur... I am having this fur shedding problem and I still wonder if this products is the main cause of action.

Use to cook chick breast meat for him but no vitamin and fibre for my dog. Wonder what basic stuff U fed to ur dog to prevent it from shedding lots of fur.

I had a chi wa wa long fur breed dog . Fed with 1 x Caesar everyday and with addition of some suppliment but sometime he just smell the food and walks away. Anyone has another good recommendation beside just chicken meat mix with supplement to fed ur dog?

btw, it has been researched & found that many processed commercial dry type dog food is extremely hazardous for dogs. Many contain meat-by-products, which consist of stuff like heart, lungs, intestines, bladders, brains, etc.

These by-products are left behind after processing food meant for human consumption, like burger patties & roast turkeys. The remaining unwanted parts of different animals are then mashed & grinded together, formed into little kibbles, & then deep fried to produce what many believe to be high quality, clean & nutritious food.

These foods are harmful because:

1. Oily - being deep fried they are extremely oily (try putting them on a tissue & observe) & introduce a component into your pets diet which never existed for millions of years : fried oil. This will eventually lead to cancer.

2. Mixing different meats together into single product means that you have no idea which meat protein is causing your pet to get allergies or sick. Also remember, Mad Cow disease occurred because farmers fed their cows with mixed meats & remains of other animals.

3. The hard poo that your pets produce, that so many people think is good, is the result of the constipation effect the food has on your pet.
note:We humans, however, refrain from excessive fried food & rich food like chocolates & durians to AVOID CONSTIPATION.

4. One reason why pets tend to "stupidly & disgustingly" eat their own poo is because kibbles are so difficult to digest your pet can still detect undigested food in their poo & thus eats them.

5. These dry kibbles also cause your pet to be dehydrated & thus tend to drink a lot of water, in turn causes them to pee a lot, & this makes your toilet training extremely difficult & fail.

WAH FROG LEGS?

that's a new protein. my dog had sores eating pork & chicken, so now he's having pacific dory fillets!!

solid gold seems to be good, all natural. not sure about ANF, though Canidae gives me dog rashes.

Actually allergy varies from dog to dog. One dog may do very well on a certain type of kibble yet another just react badly.

In fact fish is one of the best protein you can give to your dog.

How heavy is your yorkie? They are rather small in size your dog is just eating accordingly I reckon.

Unless your dog is not eating, I won't be overly worried.
