Thread: Our Top 5 Recommended Dog Food Choices

  1. #13

    Default

    I found a new food at my local feed store. It is called Tuscan natural....I have been feeding "Warner" it for the last two months and he is doing better than ever. I know that everyone has an opinion on dog food, but I am big on researching nutrition, and I really like what this food has to offer. First, they utilize Olive oil. The health benefits are wonderful. Secondly, they promote the fact that this product is mainly monunsaturated fat, which helps build the immune system. Poly fats are immune system depressants. Lastly this company uses no re-grind in the product. I have always fed my bulldog what I consider the best, (Innova) until PG purchased Natura. Now I won't feed those products.
    If any of you are feeding Tuscan, give me your thoughts. If you are feeding a better food, I would like to know what it is so I can check it out. Thanks.

    Has anyone used SoJo's? I recently switched our baby over to the Raw Turkey SoJo's. She seems to be doing better but is still having awful time with watery eyes. The vet suggsted moving over to Royal Canine Hypoallergenic for a while. Has anyone tried either?

    you might want to post a question under the food and nutrition forum! Start a new thread. A lot of people won't see this. I'm not very good with food but we have a lot of people that are. I do know Royal Canin isn't very highly rated and/or thought of. I'll tag @cowsmomshe knows a lot about food.

    Does the Avocado have to be ripe or can dogs eat them unripened? Many years ago a neighbors Great Dane ate some Avocados that fell off a neighboring tree and he developed so much gas the vet had to insert a tube into his tummy to release it. I'm assuming he overdid the feasting. I myself am allergic to them.

    I have an iPhone app that is called Om nom, Can my dog eat it? It says Avocados are somewhat dangerous. The actual avocado is not the real danger. It says the seed and leaves are the biggest danger. Persin, an element in avocados are known to be toxic. Persin can cause damage to the tissue in the lungs and heart, as well as other organs. Avocados have a high fatty content that can provoke vomiting and pancreatitis. The seed prevents a danger in the form of a choking hazard or an obstruction if swallowed.

    Yes I have feed both. I found that with Warner, the results were so so. He was having the same problem with watery eyes and staining. I have been feeding Tuscan Natural now since May, and the results are better than I thought could be possible. His eyes have mostly dried up, but he still gets "goobers" periodically. I honestly think it is the olive oil in the product. The ingredients read very similar to other brands, but I never got these results from other foods. None of them use olive oil. Hope this helps.

    @Fontanafox..you know, we have had dogs eat avocados that fall off our trees forever! Never..ever had a problem. I can't imagine that unless you were allergic,it's really a fear! When jake's mom was nursing..she was given avocados to help her keep weight on! Jake has already eaten many avvies and while I have to watch him like a hawk so he doesn't eat the pit...he has done fine! One time we had a Doberman that ate 8..yes 8.. In one day! not a hint of trouble..lol..but she had a cast iron tummy!

Not sure how true that is so we just steer clear from it altogether.
    I told my vet that I gave my Gunnyboy milk chocolate for years and he told me it"s ok but not DARK chocolate thats the bad guy for dogs.

    It's dark chocolate and the higher the cocoa the more poisoniess it is to them.
    • Milk chocolate: one ounce per pound of body weight (so, without intervention, a 16 pound dog (7.2 kg) would likely die from eating one pound of milk chocolate)
    • Dark chocolate: 1/3 of an ounce per pound of body weight (around 5 ounces of dark chocolate for that same 16 pound dog)
    • Baker’s chocolate: 1/9 of an ounce per pound of body weight (around 1.8 ounces of baker’s chocolate for a 16 pound dog)
    • Cocoa powder: 1/16 of an ounce per pound of dog (around 1 ounce of cocoa powder to kill a 16 pound dog)
    On the other extreme end, it would take about 200 pounds of white chocolate consumed within a 17 hour period to reach toxic levels of theobromine for a 16 pound dog. The low quantity of theobromine here is because white chocolate is made from cocoa butter, sugar, and milk, but no cocoa solids.
