  1. Be careful though! My dog almost died when I added peas to her food. Turns out she is highly allergic to chicken, lamb, peas, and a number of grains.

    • Did you only feed your dog kibble or tin food? You need to get your dog used to REAL food slowly, like you would with a human baby. One type of food for two weeks, then add another, stick with that for two weeks, then add another and so on! Also feed ateaspoon of applecider, to strenghten his stomach acid!

      • She only eats real food, and has now for 5 years. It is the only way I can insure she gets no grains, poultry (or poultry products including eggs). Peas is another problem , and green beans.

    • The one with the allergies in an 18 yr old rescue that I’ve had for 15 years. She also has Cushings and 7 yrs ago I was told she would only live another 2-4 years. She didn’t agree. And I’ve worked hard to keep away things she can’t or won’t eat. (She hates carrots in any form but will eat an orange if peeled). I followed the advice , which was similar to the above and she almost died. Diets are not one size fits all.

  2. I have a 50 lb bassethound/american eskimo mix & a purebred 150 lb GSD. My vet was indifferent…it appeared she didn’t know enough to comment. Both dogs have dry itchy skin & are big time shedders. I give the little guy 1 tea of it per day. The big boy gets 1 table per day. I rub it on their paws, dry elbows, any place the have dry areas. Put just a little bit rubbed in your palms & rub it thru their fur. It has helped with the overall dryness, no problems with diarrhea & is a great anti-oxidant.

  3. I have a toy poodle i rub coconut oil into his hair once a week after her bath it keeps him looking beautiful i only buy a pure Oil I had a lot of trobble with many foods so i put him on Black hawk dog food dry dog bones for dogs that are for tummies that get upset with many over thee counter foods He is well now doing just greats Vet wanted me to buy his foods he had and i did he would not eat any off it and it made me feel sick just to see it i knew my dog would never eat that Black Hawk food looks good you can see lots of vegs inside was just a wastes of money what the Vet sold me i got my dog well with the help of Paws on the Coast Umina who i buy my dog Charlie food from my dog Charlie is happy well and having a good life swims with me I found a good food he would eat and was happy too my dog Charlie is a very happy loved little boy Woof Woof from him

  4. My dog Charlie i rub coconut into his coat after a bath he was a sick toy poddle and many foods upset his tummy Vet told me i should buy the food he sold said it would be the best for him and his tummy so did it was a waste of money It looked so sloppy made me sick to even put it on his plate i knew no way he eat that ever Charlie did not and i knew he was hungry So I did some homework and found with the help of Paws on the Coast i brought Black Hawk wet food and dry dog biskets from them my dog Charlie has never looked back and i like to share this with other dog owners who may have a dog like mine Charlie is happy well and loves swimming with me Vets push to much the other food they will not eat Black Hawk looks good no sick smell Vets need to to sell this food as it is great dogs love to eat it i wanted to share this with others that have a pet like my Charlie they make a cat food too

  5. I have 5 little fur babies. Their treats are cut up baby carrots or string beans. The beans are less fating but I dont feed them that many to make a difference.

  6. I cook my dogs food in a crock pot every 2 weeks, a meat 3 veggies brown rice, plus carrots, tumeric, dry mustard, salt, calcium citrate and I give her a multivitamin a day.. Winnie is a rescue dog and lived in a cage all her life as a breeding dog. She’s lost most of her teeth due to poor nutrition. Now she eats rocolli, cauliflower, cartots, tomatoes. She’s quite happy now and runs and jumps like a young healthy dog would.

  7. I have two Bichons. I make their food most of the time. It is basically a chicken stew. It consist of baked chicken, peas and carrots, and rice. I’ll add broccoli,sweet potatoes, and occasionally I’ll put in green beans and cauliflower. My former vet was very impressed with it. (I say former because we moved). They are 13 and 12 now and have never had problems with digestion or weight problems.

  8. You can kill a dog feeding them raw salmon. Look up salmon poisoning in dogs on Wikipedia. I live in the PNW and dogs who get into the raw salmon or come into contact with salmon blood can die! Be careful what you recommend!

  9. Just have to ask. Is all of this stuff suppose to be raw? I have a problem with serving raw fish to my pets. Also, is the liver beef, pork, calf or chicken. I enjoy these articles, but the info is lacking a lot. How about the peas. Are they canned, frozen or fresh?

  10. I’m not reading through page after page but I noticed a picture of peas. My dogs will eat around all the peas. Without reading the article, I can say what I give my dogs, and they love. I give them green beans that are cooked to crisp-tender and sweet potatoes. Be care about the sweet potatoes because otherwise the dog(s) will be spending the day outside!

  11. We always cook extra vegetables, carrots, sprouts green beans, cabbage, broccoli, peas etc for our dog she has a little bit added to each evening meal, she poos a lot, but unless anyone tells me otherwise, we think this is good for her, she appears to be very fit!

  12. Add finely chopped Greens: lettuce, dandelion greens, parsley, cilantro, beet tops, carrot tops, kale, sprouted seeds. Add sweet, lightly cooked Veggies: zucchini, celery, green beans, red beets, yams, peas. Give some Treats: banana, seeded/cored apples, watermelon without seeds or rind. Also great: strawberries, seeded/peeled orange slices; blueberries, carrots, pineapple, broccoli, cucumber, celery, pears, raspberries, mango, cooked sweet potato.




  14. Our Dobermann could spit out even a bit of pea if he could taste it. The tinyist bit would be spat out from a large mouthful of mixed food.. And as only that same amount gives me severe hay fever, I guess he knows what he should have.
    Also, the green plant being offered I read just recently. Humans and animals – unless you have 3 or 4 stomachs to digest grass – should not be eating it. We cant digest it. If you see cats and dogs eating grass as they do – it is to make them be sick or clear out any blockage they feel. They dont have the stomach to digest grass. This also means the “Chlorophyll” green drinks are not good or meant for us to eat either. Many foods we eat is not suitable for animals. Ask – would they have eaten this in the wild? Same for us – foods that could be hunted and gathered is what suits our gut/body too. Particularly dark berries and fruit of every sort.

  15. My dogs all love broccoli, carrots, zucchini, and green beans😊 They get a big tbsp of pumpkin at every meal, as well as a bigctblsp of cottage cheese. Both of these good for the gut. They get a good grain free kibble mixed with pre made raw food😊 I know a lot say not to min kibble with raw, but mine do great with it.
    I also use organic coconut oil a couple of times a week and a good probiotic each morn.
    Nothing they sell at Wal Mart or the grocery store is good for your dog unless it comes out of the meat or produce dept😊
    Veterinarians spend VERY LITTLE time on nutrition in vet school.
    Hills, which makes Science Diet funds most of the vet colleges/hence the reason the vets feel obligated to push their crappy prescription food!!! I would NEVER use any of that science diet, Royal Canin or the other one made by purina they sell😝
