I believe most of you are feeding your beloved pet dog with commercial dog food and i know there are some doting owners out there feeding their darling home cooked food specially made for their furry friends.

By all means feed your dog with your home cooked food specially made for your pet dog, but please give them a balance diet. And i would suggest that you just feed them normal kibbles dog food as they are specially formulated for your dog.

And for those owners who are feeding their pet dog dry food currently, I'd advise you to get one that's well balance and of the popular brand. DO NOT try to save on your dog's expenses and it's no good for it's health.

I'd recommend you getting your pet food supplies from reputable pet shops and not commercial supermarkets.

I would mention brand name here, but there's this famous brand available in almost all supermarkets, and i believe most of you will know what brand i'm referring to now. This particular brand's salt contain is too high that all my friend who fed their dogs on it, had fur dropping problems.
After they changed to more famous and more expensive brands like Eukanuba(my recommendation) and Science Diet, the fur problem just vanish.

If you have the time, compare the nutritional contain of all the possible brand you are considering to buy.

Also, i'm against the idea of feeding our beloved furry folks canned food.
In my opinion and experience, canned food will stink your pet's breath and not only that, you will have trouble feeding your pet pure kibbles meal in future as the canned food are definitely more delicious.

Ok, those are my two cents worth of thought. Any comments?
feeding my dog with solid gold. my schnauzer coat now wow

i think it depends on your dog. i've tried all sorts of brands (wet n dry) before i finally settle with canidae (dry) n cesar (wet) coz i guess my pup is as picky as me. =p

My schnauzer had bumps and my vet recommended eukanuba prescription.
The coat now is good.
Can only be bought from pet clinics.
Cost $28 for 6 lbs i think.

for dogs that r eating their won s**t...mayb its becos they r still hungry or becos they r sick...when my dog is feeling unwell he will tends to drink his own p**s....but lucky for me he doesnt eat his own s**t ...mayb they pick up the habit frm the pet shop they comes frm cos some pet shop owners feed very little to the puppies...

ermm as for dry food ya my dog used to eat eagle then change to anf then nw have to cook for him cos doc says he cant take dry food..have to take rice...so i bo bian everyday muz cook for him like his personal maid...heard dat a certain brand p******e is not healthy for dogs as they normally used bypass or left overs frm slaughter hse..hw true i dunnnoe but i dun like the brand personally...

theres a society dat i like to bring up here call action for singapore dogs (ASD)

www.asdsingapore.com

quite a cool society

Ha! ha! Loved the way you expressed it! Just like my dog. But I think they're all worth every bit of effort 'cos they're the best creatures in the whole world.

My dog eats dry food plus cooked food too - dry for breakfast and we leave it out throughout the day for him when he gets hungry or wants a snack. The cooked food (beef and rice, or fish and rice) is for dinner.

I own a Maltese that is coming to 3 years old. I swear by Eagle Pack, the formula that comes in the blue packaging.

Used to feed it chicken breast meat, but as someone said, not enough fibre, caused stomach upset. Tried to add rice/porridge as advised by vet, but didn't really work. Plus bird flu biz, now I've totally dropped chicken breast meat.

Caesar is also good, but I use it more as a treat than a daily meal. Must keep my dog looking forward to it.:laugh:
