    Default More dog food report

    Lately I was preparing for traveling, and as Tank will fly first from Atlanta to Frankfurt 12 hours and stay for a night in a dog hotel, and fly another 12 hours, I need to put some food in his luggage, so people who will take care of him in Frankfurt can feed him. And he doesn’t eat kibble, just sniffs and leaves it, spoiled little brat.
    So, I bought a can of dog food in Petco, the most expensive one. Grain-free, balanced, bla-bla... gave him half a can in the morning, half in the evening. 24 hours later he had explosive dark green diarrhoea. He is definitely a very special snowflake, but I presume it still says something about the dog food too...
    So now I sit with a problem. I don’t want him to poop himself in a cage while flying to Cape Town. So, I think I better remember my grandmother’s lessons and sterilise and vacuum can his normal homemade food myself!
    And I will never believe that good old homemade oats with meat and veggies isn’t “balanced” enough to feed our puppies! Switch to human grade turkey! Turkey has loads of Taurine and isn’t expensive at all! 1,29 usd per pound! Whatever lacking you can add with vitamin pill!
    I promise, next time I cook for Tank, I make a ste by step instruction with pictures for those who dare to switch to home cooking!
    Bulldogs are NOT completely dogs, they are half humans! Human grade food for every bulldog!!!

    I'm SO tired of this... makes it completely frustrating for those of us trying to do the best for our fur babies!!!

    I call BS. Grain free has served ALL of our Bulldogs and rescues(1000+) for many many years and not a single Bulldog has developed or died from what was diagnosed as DCM.
    Funny how this whole DCM and Grain-free foods scare came up shortly after many of the Higher Quality Brands (Fromm, Acana, Orijen) jump ship from Chewy, immediately after PetsMart acquired them for $3.35 BILLION. On its face, it seems like a hit job perpetuated to impose vengeance for leaving.
    But, FWIW, I think I'll spend a couple of $ and have my dogs taurine levels checked at their next Vet visit. We'll see what happens.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Just add sardines once a week... covers the missing taurine.

    It's like a new article every other day. I know I have read before that certain breeds are more likely to get the DCM but for whatever reason, they want to link it to grain free foods.

    We all do the best we can. Jax gets 100% raw and Louie gets Zignature in the am and raw in the pm. Eventually I will switch him to raw in the am but he eats so much and raw is expensive. They also get sardines on the weekends.
