Donald asks…

What is the difference between dry dog food and mixer?

I have been seeing dry dog food and mixer in the super markets and both look exactly the same to me! What is the difference?

admin answers:

Dry dog food is dog food that has been baked or cooked and then ‘dried’ into small cubes or shapes. One of the major benefits of dry food is that it helps keep your dogs teeth in good condition as the chewing action helps remove plaque. Dry dog food is normally ‘complete’ meaning it contains all the recommended daily vitamins and minerals for a dog’s daily diet. There are many kinds of dry dog food that you can buy, including organic dog food, holistic dog food and natural dog food. You even get a variety of dry dog foods specially created for different kinds of dogs. There’s dry puppy dog food, junior dog food, adult dog food, senior dog food, even dog food for lactating bitches or those recovering from surgery.

Mixer

Dog food Mixer, is ‘dry’ dog food, but generally, it is not a ‘complete’ food and is intended to be ‘mixed’ with tinned dog food or other foods. Its original use was that it added ‘bulk’ to the food at feeding times and was therefore used to help with dogs that ate excessively and needed to cut their calorie intake. However these days dog mixers are not so widely used, as other foods, particularly as ‘complete’ dry dog foods come in various packages aimed at different kinds of dogs (including overweight dogs).

Hope this helps!

Linda asks…

How can I control my dog’s flatulence?

I have a one-year-old Shar-Pei. He has frequent gas that can clear a room. He eats organic, grain-free dog food. Perhaps the high meat content is a cause. Other than switching his food, how can we control his gas problem?
I forgot to mention that I’ve tried Beano, and my vet said there’s nothing I can do…

admin answers:

You need to change the food. I have a 2 yr old Boxer and let me tell you, he’s nasty. My Dane (who I had first) was eating Eukenuba and loved it. When I got my Boxer, he started eating it too, and I swear, it smelled like he took a Sh** in the house. Anyway, someone told me that the expensive/rich foods cause gas. So I switched to Purina One and its soooo much better.

Also, it you want a good laugh, get a kids book called “Walter the farting dog”. Its so true…

Jenny asks…

How bad is it if my 1 year old eats dog food?

It’s an organic, all-natural dog food, if that helps…

admin answers:

They will be fine. There are laws about how pet food is made, it has to be safe for human consumption. Sounds terrible but SOME homeless and/or poor people buy pet food to eat because it is cheap.
Don’t everybody attack me, I said some.

Your Questions About Rough Collie Temperament

Ruth asks…

What type of dogs are best if you have children and cats ?

We are thinking of getting a dog soon but already have 2 older cats and two teenagers ! Do any dog lovers know which kind of dogs are best with other pets and have nicer temperaments when they are walked etc ? I quite like the idea of a Little Scotty or something similar.
I would like a dog that gets on well with people and other pets ( at home and out walking. )

Any help would be appreciated.

admin answers:

There is only one answer for this!

A Rough or Smooth Collie-Lassie! (Smooth is the short haired version of the breed)

The nice thing about Collies is not only are they smart and gentle, they are not hyper and pig headed as some of the other breeds that people will suggest here.
Also they do not have the health issues of other breeds.

Visit the CCA website to learn about the Collie as a family dog.

Http://www.collieclubofamerica.org/cfd/index.html

I picked the breed as I wanted a dog who was gentle with all my different animals, including my cats and parrots. Collies are inherently gentle and are the ultimate family dog.

Helen asks…

What is the best pure breed large dog?

List 5 breeds that are your favourite. Here is mine

1) Rough Collie
2) Golden Retriever
3) German Shepard
4) Rotty
5) Labrador

admin answers:

Collie–rough or smooth (they’re the same breed but with a short easy-care coat) I know of no better family pet, safe, gentle, caring, responsible, loving, as well as active and playful when you want them to be, calm when you don’t. They’re good watch dogs (bark when someone comes or is hanging around) but not guardy dogs that are likely to bite the mailman or your child’s guest. They can do it all and do it well–dog sports, herding, carting, backpacking, therapy work, guide/service dogs, nanny or couch potato. They aren’t obsessive or hyperactive like many herding breeds.

And in no particular order:

Golden retriever–only a sensible, calm one–the active hunting type is way too rowdy until they grow up and settle down, which can take a couple of years or more. But at their best they’re sweet, loving, and beautiful.

Standard poodle–if you can afford the grooming. They’re quick, very funny, happy, bright and responsive dogs, and beautiful. Their coats are just wonderful to touch.

German Shorthaired Pointer.. Handsome, easy-care, bright, responsive, a bit rowdy while growing up but essentially gentle dogs. Very nice to live with. Sometimes predatory with cats though.

Doberman Pinscher–elegantly beautiful, “velcro dogs” that want to be with you all the time. Intelligent, responsive, loyal, gentle. American bred ones mostly lack the strong guarding temperament these days, but they can certainly intimidate if needed.

I will add that the “best” breed for anyone is different for each person, depending on what they want in a dog.

Linda asks…

What is the temperament of a rhodesian ridgeback?

My boyfriend and I would like one (or two) one day but don’t know anyone personally who has ever owned one. Any advice or knowledge on this breed of dog? Also, are they good with cats? P.S. I have never had a dog but boyfriend has an wonderfully behaved black lab.

admin answers:

Ridgebacks are from Southern Africa. They have been developed by crossing lots of breeds, mainly from gundog, terrier and hounds, but mastiff types and indigenous African hunting dogs are in there too! The ridgeback is not an attacking breed; it is bred to track game and then keep it at bay and also to be a loyal companion. They are not guard dogs as such, but will keep a very watchful and protective eye on the family they love.

Ridgebacks are bred for endurance and stamina but should be light on their feet and extremely agile. Being a hunting breed and developed to think for themselves, they will chase anything that runs away, which could cause problems. It is important that time is made available to give them the amount of good exercise they need. Without the stimulation a daily run gives the dog, you may find you have a very bored hound on your hands, and a bored ridgeback can be a destructive ridgeback.

These dogs are big and strong in mind and body. If your ridgeback does not respect your authority you may be faced with a problem! Earning a Ridgeback’s respect should be a first priority. They can test you to the limits, so you must be prepared to out think your dog. Never lose your temper though, they are not servants and although they are more trainable that most hound breeds, you won’t ever get the instant submission you see in a working or gundog breed like the collie or Labrador. Once you have gained a Rhodesian Ridgeback’s respect you will have a life long devoted and entertaining companion.

With strangers ridgebacks can be standoffish. Even after a proper introduction a friendship cannot be rushed, but once given it is rarely forgotten. Natural suspicion should not be confused with nervousness. Ridgebacks are playful and love to romp and chase anybody and anything that joins in, and they can play very rough, shoulder barging is a speciality. This can be off-putting to other dog owners in the park, and they may think you dog is aggressive, when all he wants to do is play.

In daily life, most ridgebacks think they are unable to live on an ordinary floor or dog bed, and will try every trick in the book to take over the sofa, or even your bed! Most ridgebacks are gluttons, which makes them notorious thieves; keep your kitchen secure and the butter at the back of the fridge. Ridgebacks are excellent gardeners, you would almost think that they wanted to live in an underground den in the middle of your lawn, instead of on your sofa, and they love rearranging your spring bulbs, and are ready to help with pruning at any time of the year. They can be incredibly lazy and expect to be lifted over the smallest fence; others can outmanoeuvre Houdini. Some have a taste for chewing antique furniture or car interiors; others won’t touch the stuff, and stick to seeing how fast they can chase round your legs as you carry in the shopping.

Ridgebacks don’t necessarily grow old gracefully but if you have a sense of humour and a love of animals then a ridgeback can be the most rewarding of companions. Loyal to a fault, loving, devoted member of the family, they adore children and hate burglars, are sensitive to your moods, but independent. They can lie around the house for hours or walk for weeks, there are no short cuts to training a ridgeback, but once over all the hurdles you will be in danger of wanting to do it all over again.

James asks…

Is it ok for cats to eat dog food?

My cat will only eat dog food and if I dont give it to hime then he will not eat for days. I have tried all types of cat food. So is dog food ok for cat long term?
I have feed him wet and wet with dry,I even mixed the cat and dog food. I even let him go hungry and then try it all again.I even try to trick him with the dog and cat food but he smells it and walks away.

admin answers:

No… It’s not ok. Cat food has special added vitamins that cats MUST have or they can suffer heat disease and blindness.

Feed your cat only cat food… Even if you have to sit there and feed him one bite at a time out of your hand.

Cats were never meant to eat dry food, also known as cereals or kibble. We, humans, make them eat it for convenience to us. It has nothing to do with them or their nutritional needs. It’s completely species inappropriate.

All small domestic cats descended from desert cats. In the wild, desert cats derive their entire liquid intake from their prey. They do not have a thirst mechanism because they don’t need it when eating a species appropriate diet. They get all they need from what they eat. Additionally water was usually not available to them in their desert climate. So they do not often drink water. Regular ol’ house cats have descended from those same wild desert cats.

So in a home environment, your kitty does not get the moisture it needs from dry food and it’s almost always in a constant state of dehydration. Water fountains are encouraged to TRY to get your cat to drink more and your kitty may even enjoy it, but it will never meet its water intake needs drinking from a bowl.

Deadly feline illnesses such as diabetes, kidney failure, obesity, allergies, Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD), bladder stones, kidney stones, urinary tract blockages and Urinary Tract Infections (FLUTD), with and without deadly crystals run rampant these days. Cats are not taking in enough water to stave them off. Proper water intake through a species appropriate diet alone can prevent most of these conditions.

Overall, wet is all around better for any cats diet, be it canned or Raw and they should never be fed dry cereal kibble if we wish to most closely match their wild nutritional and dietary needs. Kibble meets our needs… not our cats.

I recommend varying the diet with a constant rotation of accepted canned foods that your cat enjoys. If you do this, and allow your cat the same assortment they would have in nature when eating mice, bugs, birds and rabbits, your cats’ digestive system won’t be so sensitive and you won’t have to run around looking for a specific brand when your store is out. You will have a nice variety to choose from instead.

Canned foods I recommend for your rotation:

Nature’s Variety – http://www.naturesvariety.com/content.lasso?r=0829192&page=1172&-session=naturesvariety:D04EC9250c614143FDKiM2BA9520

Lizzie asks…

What is the best dog food for a miniature dachshund?

My dog is very picky and he will only eat certain things. Sometimes i have to “mix” it with something else.

admin answers:

Well stay away from brands like purina, science diet, eukanuba, iams, alpo, pedigree, ol roy. Pretty much anything u see on tv or see at walmart. Go for a better brand like canidae, innova, chicken soup brand, timberwolf organics, or solid gold. These foods r made of holistic ingredients that ur dog will love. There r no fillers and no allergens such as corn

Mandy asks…

What brands of dog food should I feed my dog with allergies?

I took my 2-year-old goldendoodle to the vet today. He has some scabs on his face that he’s been itching and irritating for a week. The vet told me he has dermatitis, and most likely allergies too. Besides the treatment for the skin issues, the vet recommended trying a different dog food, preferably an organic one with meat as the first ingredient. Can you recommend any brands of dog food that would be good to try for a dog with allergies?

admin answers:

A higher quality dog food might very well help your mutt.

Examples of low quality foods to avoid: Anything you can find in a grocery store will be low end, Purina, Iams, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Royal Canin, Pedigree, Kibbles n’ Bits, Beneful, Ol’Roy.

Examples of high quality foods to look for: Innova, Wellness, Solid Gold, Canidae All Life Stages, Fromm Four Star, Merrick, GO Natural, Nature’s Variety Prairie, Nature’s Logic, Artemis Fresh Mix, Timberwolf Organics.

A great option is to go with an entirely grainless diet. Many of the high quality foods now put out grainless formulas. Some good grainless diets include: Innova EVO, Wellness CORE, Blue Wilderness, Nature’s Variety Instinct, Orijen, Horizon Legacy, Merrick Before Grain, Canidae Grain Free All Life Stages, Fromm Surf & Turf, Now!, Sold Gold Barking At The Moon, Ziwipeak, and Taste of the Wild.

If he still experiences problems, you may need a food specifically designed for dogs with food allergies. California Natural is a good, high quality allergy food and Natural Balance puts out a few allergy formulas as well.

Michael asks…

Questions about dog food to be answered by people who own dogs.?

I feed my dog pedigree chump every day for lunch and dinner(obviously i give her more than just that, she gets porridge for breakfast, dog treats, food scraps such as chicken, turkey etc now and then).

Is food like Pedigree chump good for dogs? I have a sneaking suspicion it cant be very good and is full of chemicals and other crap. I sometimes give my dog organic dog food from healthfood shops but it’s not very convient as it’s not always available and Pedigree has vegetables and pasta in the tin and I like my dog to have a bit of variety.

What brand of dog food do you give your dog? And does anyone have any evidence dog food on the shelves is bad?
I have a West Highland Terrier. I give her small breakfast, lunch and dinner and little treats now and then during the day. She is a very good weight and healthy.
I also will not buy my dog Iams as its tested on dogs. Sick Sick Sick.

admin answers:

The best brands I know of are Wellness (which I feed my dogs), Timberwolf, Innova and Eagle Pack, all of which can be found at most pet stores (sorry, not at retail superstores). The food you are using right now has high amounts of corn and wheat (very bad for dogs and can shorten their life span and cause numerous long term health problems) and can also contain meat by-products (ground up chicken beaks, feet, bowels other gross meat toss-aways). While the pet store foods are more expensive, you dog will not eat as much because they do not have the fillers that commercial brands, including Purina, Iams, Science Diet, Pedigree, Eukanuba, etc.

I used Science Diet Natural for years because I though a natural food would be best. After years of skin problems, allergies, diabetes and other pet health problems, I switched to Wellness. Within two weeks my animals were all more energized. Skin problems cleared up as well as congestion in my one cat. The change has also alleviated some of the swelling my collie has from arthritis so she can move easier.

Also, thank you for not feeding your dog Iams (who also owns Eukanuba). They like people to think they are a good animal company but are out to simply make money off of poor quality, expensive food.

Mary asks…

Reasonably priced natural or organic dog food?

I have a Weimaraner. They are prone to bloat so I don’t want to take any chances with weird ingredients. I have been feeding her Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul. Just wanted other’s opinions on what the best holistic dog food is without being outrageously expensive.

admin answers:

Nutro Ultra is a great holistic food. It’s packed with “super foods” to help with her immune system, healthy heart, brain function, vision, hips & joints, etc. Also, Nutro does not use ground yellow corn, which is a filler and big allergen among dogs. They don’t use by-products (heads, feet, intestines). And there are no artificial colors or flavors. It has high levels of essential fatty acids to help keep your dog’s skin and coat healthy. And it’s 100% guaranteed!

Your Questions About Organic Dog Food Coupons

Chris asks…

First time trying canidae should I get small bag or large bag?

I am going to Switch to canidae..should I get the large bag or just the small bag since it is the first time and they may not like it. The small 5 lb bag is I think around $ 13 and the large bag is $ 50 for a 44 lb bag. I got a large rotti/shep mix and a rotti puppy and they eat a lot so I don’t know if the little bag will even last 2 or 3 days. What do you think I should get ? Also my moms dog will be eating this to and he is a small cocker spanial/chihuahua mix but he don’t eat a lot like my 2 dogs. I am thinking of getting the big one but they might not even like the food anyways. What should I get? Also is there any online printable coupons for canidae that you know of thanks.

admin answers:

I have three Mastiff type dogs and they hate Canidae. So I’d say get the smaller bag first to see if your dogs will like it. I ended up dontating the bag to the local animal shelter!

I did find another food though that they all love – Embark Dog Food.

Its a dehydrated raw food that you can either add to their kibble or simply feed on their own. Embark is a grain free, low carbohydrate dog food. This diet was designed for dogs of all life stages including active adults, puppies, pregnancy and nursing. It contains higher protein and fat to support muscle structure, function and body mass. It contains no by-products.

Made from: USDA turkey, organic flaxseed, potatoes, celery, spinach, carrots, coconut, apples, organic kelp, eggs, sesame seeds, bananas, cranberries and rosemary.

Lisa asks…

Info and help on kittens?

2 days before thanksgiving, our dog chased a blonde kitten up a tree. Her stomach bulged, we thought she had worms. We kept her in our old (but large!) chinchilla cage until we set her free. Well, last night we heard her meowing on a walk with our pup, and today even louder from down the valley/road/meadow. She’s so very gentle, and seems like she’s been owned. Today we took her to the vet, and amazingly, she has no worms or cancer or anything, just a few fleas that were killed right there. We fed her puppy food but now have kitten food. We didn’t need to catch her. She came to us, and I guess we’re meant to keep her. She’s lived for a week since we let her go, so she seems fine. She survived a week w/o food, but she’s healthy and nice and we may keep her. But can you give me info and experiences and stuff on kittens and strays (but not the spay thing- I know that) and advice? We aren’t sure wat to do- we have two dogs, 3 fish and a chinchilla. I made signs to put up, but doubt reply.
Turns out she does have worms, mild case. One was only from rodents (guess that’s what she was eating!) We’re pry gonna keep her- bought cheap toys and vet gave us a free sample of dry cat food, so it should be a good, safe kind (Science Diet). She doesn’t go to the bathroom in the house, which is good because my mom is not buying a litter box. We put her on the chinchilla’s collar and leash (chinchilla’s happy she’s not on the leash this time) and walk her around outside, let her play. The dogs are tied up or in the house when we’re out with the cat. Actually, the cat doesn’t mind our puppy, she knows he’s just a big nosy baby, but our 10 y/o dog was the one who chased her, and will kill her so we make sure she’s locked up and away. So the cat will be indoor/outdoor, going potty outside, in a carrier/cage indoor and we let her play under supervision. We’re getting her own leash and collar soon, and I’m surprised my dad hasn’t thrown her out, maybe he’ll be happier with a cat than pup.

admin answers:

Well first off if someone does reply, be aware that there are people out there scouting for free cats/kittens for lab experiments and such so be sure to ask them good questions, like the cats name, their vet, etc. Detailed stuff that may throw someone off if they are just some weirdo.

OK.

I would keep her quarantined in a room by herself for about 2 weeks, just in case of anything like ringworm. Ringworm shows up about 2 weeks after initial infection, and is highly contagious to both animals and people (but mostly ones with compromised immune systems, or the young or the elderly). Wash your hands after handling. Also, keeping her in a separate room will get her used to scents and sounds in a low key environment.

Oh and keep her indoors b/c it is very dangerous out there for a kitty! The last thing you need is her to get injured/attacked, pick up Feline AIDS, etc…

Get a scratching pad (really cheap, my cats love the cardboard ones you set on the floor and they come with catnip to rub in). They have yet to scratch furniture! A cat bed is good, we keep ours on the couch. We kinda spoiled her with that, oops. She won’t go in it if it is on the floor! At least the fur won’t go on the couch. Plenty of toys too, but be careful you don’t get small ones so your dogs won’t eat them! Things she can play with by herself are good too b/c they are a form of enrichment. A cat teaser is a must, That way your hands are out of her reach so she never associates them as being OK things to play with.

Foods – a mix of soft and dry food is key. Both are necessary. Read ingredient labels and make sure there is no wheat gluten. For hard food we use Purina One Kitten Formula (always seem to be coupons for it too) and for soft you have to be careful, we use Friskies but only certain flavors do not have wheat gluten so read the label for every flavor. We get the Poultry Platter, Ocean Whitefish and Tuna, and Salmon Dinner. Unless you are loaded, you don’t have to break the bank by going straight for the super expensive organic stuff, there are ways around staying away from bad ingredients.

She sounds like a real sweetie and has a similar story to a kitten we adopted recently. She is 8mo old now. She showed up at a persons house, very friendly. They thought she was one of the foster mom’s cats so they brought her to the foster mom and she kept her b/c she was so sweet for a feral. Then along came my husband and I, and now she’s the little princess of our home!

Lastly – give her lots of love!

Susan asks…

Converting from meat-eating diet to vegetarianism?

lol i dont know if vegetarianism is a word but I recently picked up this book called “Skinny Bitch”… I am 5 foot 8 and 150 lbs but wanted to lose about 10 lbs, heard the book was good and #1 bestseller… I read horrible things about the abuse of animals in factory farms and it made me cry. I love animals, and I don’t want to contribute to their suffering by eating meat anymore. And I am a person who could eat roast beef sandwhiches EVERYday I love it so much! I REALLY want to try and cut down on my meat intake and eventually not eat any meat products all together because I have been reading up online and through other books and finally know the truth about what I’m eating… not only is it unhealthy but it’s heartbreaking. I just wanted to know if there are any tips for people like me who want to make the switch? I have a lot of natural and organic food stores (like Trader Joe’s) nearby. Also, are there any meat producers who are humane? I heard Chik-fil-A was.
Are there any ways to get politically involved in STOPPING this horrible torture of animals?

admin answers:

Yes, vegetarianism is a word! 🙂
I went from an omnivore to vegan literally overnight and have been for eight years now. There are many vegan and vegetarian meat substitutes out there (but please be careful with too much processed foods). Boca Original is a very tasty vegan burger. Tofurky makes a lovely roast with gravy and it’s sooooooo YUM! (They also make keilbasa and Italian “sausage” that makes a wonderful “sausage-dog”.) Tofutti makes a vegan ice cream line that is DEEEE-LISH as well as a sour cream and cream cheese that is to die for (not low-calorie, though. Use sparingly.)

There are many ways you can become influential in the community and help animals who are tortured through factory farming, domestic animal abuse, etc. Look online for your particular state, city or county. Also, look on Amazon.com for vegetarian cookbooks — there are many, and the recipes are mostly really great! Becoming vegan and/or vegetarian opens you up to a whole new world of ethic foods that you may never have known existed. And you’re doing a good thing for yourself and the animals!

Many people say they don’t like tofu, but there are great ways to cook it. Buy a block of it and freeze it (it makes it more “meaty-textured” after defrosting!). Defrost it, gently squeeze as much water out as you can. Cut it into fairly think slices and put a few drops of soy sauce on each, allowing it to soak in. Coat them in Shake-n-Bake mix (any kind; I like the kind for pork chops) and cook in the oven. YUMMY!

Oh, and if you find a vegetarian or vegan product you particularly love, email and tell them. They will usually send you coupons for free or discounted product! Good luck and happy eating!

Your Questions About Organic Dog Food Amazon

William asks…

My pet is ill, need advice with medication, please, really would be appreciated?

Hi i have a golden Labrador he is 9 and a half years old and he weighs 44KG. He hadn’t been eating any food for a few days so I took him to my vets, my local vet is away and won’t be back until the end of the month, so I saw another vet instead. This vet seemed to be only after my money, didn’t seem to care about my dog and only said pay £400 every month for this medication or put the dog down. Now I can’t afford that amount every month and there’s no way I wanted to put my dog down, as he still has that life in him.
My dog has liver problems my normal vet said before that to do a biopsy on him would be very risky and with his age may not be worth it, so we decided not to do that, he did however tell me to get some milk thistle as this is shown to help a lot. Now I’m not sure how much to give him, as his liver is causing him problems so he would need a high dosage but i ain’t sure how much to give. He has also started to pee blood in his urine today.
He weighs 44KG and I have been giving him 1 capsule a day.
On the bottle it says this as ingredients in each capsule. :
Each vegetable capsule provides: Raw milk thistle herb/seed powder…..350mg
(Silybum marianum)
Vegetable capsule shell
(hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose)
Milk thistle seed powdered extract…..100mg
(total flavonoids including silymarin 80mg (80%)

If anyone can advise me as I have been doing research myself but still not sure how many capsules to give as I think I can give him 2-3 capsules a day due to his weight and also the fact that he has developed liver problems. I have ordered milk thistle organic in liquid form thus much easier to put in some milk and water for him to drink and not entirely sure how much to give him on that as well, here is the link of the item that should hopefully have arrived by tomorrow http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00205EBLC/ref=sc_pgp__m_A3J017YXZMAGGV_1?ie=UTF8&m=A3J017YXZMAGGV&n=&s=&v=glance

Do you think I should give just the liquid form only or do you think I should give him both medications. I would go to the vet but as my normal vet ain’t back till the end of the month I wouldn’t want to go back to that other so called vet who seems to be only doing it for the money!
My dog has energy and a will to carry on living as he is waggling his tail a lot and wants to be be loved and played with, ok he isn’t playing as he use to, but he is always happy to see new people still and other dogs, he has that will to live and he’s telling me he’s still got time in him yet. If I saw it in him that he was in a lot of pain and really struggling I would definitely put him out his misery but he ain’t, even my neighbour said he still is wagging his tail happily and want to go for his walks still. Any help would be so much appreciated as he has lost weight and eating tiny amounts, but definitely wants to drink a lot and keeps eating the snow that we had the other day when we go for walks

admin answers:

I am not a vet and will not tell you what to give your dog. Understand that. Besides researching the milk thistle also look into SAMe to help with liver problems. Also when your vet gets back ask about doing a check on your dogs liver values. Ask about Denamarin for dogs.
As for the peeing blood, that sounds like a UTI. See a different vet, not the one so willing to euthanize an energetic dog.
Good luck to you and your beloved dog.

Now I can’t afford that amount every month and there’s no way I wanted to put my dog down, as he still has that life in him.
My dog has liver problems my normal vet said before that to do a biopsy on him would be very risky and with his age may not be worth it, so we decided not to do that, he did however tell me to get some milk thistle as this is shown to help a lot. Now I’m not sure how much to give him, as his liver is causing him problems so he would need a high dosage but i ain’t sure how much to give. He has also started to pee blood in his urine today.
He weighs 44KG and I have been giving him 1 capsule a day.
On the bottle it says this as ingredients in each capsule. :
Each vegetable capsule provides: Raw milk thistle herb/seed powder…..350mg
(Silybum marianum)
Vegetable capsule shell
(hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose)
Milk thistle seed powdered extract…..100mg
(total flavonoids including silymarin 80mg (80%)

If anyone can advise me as I have been doing research myself but still not sure how many capsules to give as I think I can give him 2-3 capsules a day due to his weight and also the fact that he has developed liver problems. I have ordered milk thistle organic in liquid form thus much easier to put in some milk and water for him to drink and not entirely sure how much to give him on that as well, here is the link of the item that should hopefully have arrived by tomorrow http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00205EBLC/ref=sc_pgp__m_A3J017YXZMAGGV_1?ie=UTF8&m=A3J017YXZMAGGV&n=&s=&v=glance

Do you think I should give just the liquid form only or do you think I should give him both medications. I would go to the vet but as my normal vet ain’t back till the end of the month I wouldn’t want to go back to that other so called vet who seems to be only doing it for the money!
My dog has energy and a will to carry on living as he is waggling his tail a lot and wants to be be loved and played with, ok he isn’t playing as he use to, but he is always happy to see new people still and other dogs, he has that will to live and he’s telling me he’s still got time in him yet. If I saw it in him that he was in a lot of pain and really struggling I would definitely put him out his misery but he ain’t, even my neighbour said he still is wagging his tail happily and want to go for his walks still. Any help would be so much appreciated as he has lost weight and eating tiny amounts, but definitely wants to drink a lot and keeps eating the snow that we had the other day when we go for walks

admin answers:

To my knowledge, milk thistle dosage is up to 67mg per 10pounds of body weight. Although it could be higher.
Doing some conversion, your dog is 97lb. Which would mean your dog’s dose is 647mg per day. If you need to give both the liquid and the capsule in order to get to that dosage, I would say that it’s okay. According to Jean Hofve, DVM, that canine dosage is a third of what she gives really really sick dogs with liver disease. But I assume that because your dog has a lot of life in him, I’d only give the 647mg daily. Be aware that too much milk thistle extract could cause upset stomach, gas, and/or diarrhea. If any of that happens, just lower the dose. Good luck!

Robert asks…

admin answers:

Nutritional deficiencies are linked to bi polar and other mentall problems.Look at these books Balance Your Brain,Balance Your Life,Gut and Psychology Syndrome The LCP Solution and look at reviews for the books on Amazon.You need essential fatty acids,B Complex 100 and a good multi vit and mineral supplement and not cheap grocery store vitamins,they contain bad fillers.SWanson`s on-line has good priices,or go to an herb shop or health food/organic grocery store.5HTP may help.The way food is processed today,kills the enzymes needed for digestion.Without enzymes,there is no digestion.All you get is adverse reactions to the food,if you can`t digest it.Noursing Traditions is a good book.Talks about how food was properly prepared in generations past.Also Gut and Psychology Syndrome talks about that as well.That one is a bit pricey,but well worth the money.

How do things look?
GPA is UNWEIGHTED….since it is Illegal to have a weighted GPA in my state..

admin answers:

I know this does not directly answer your question, but if you are looking to do more perhaps this will interest you.

Here is an idea where you can accomplish something worthwhile and demonstrate you have many skills such as leadership, organizational skills etc:

Start a cybermentoring program.

You can easily start this program at your school. It is is fun to do, will make a difference in people’s lives (and will look great on your college applications also). A full guide with EVERYTHING you need is at: www.OnGiantsShoulders.org ; (note: NOT .com).

Let us know how if you are considering starting a branch of “On Giants’ Shoulders” at your school through the “Contact Us” section of the website. And be sure to ask us any questions you may have.

admin answers:

I think that academically, you have a great chance of getting into your ideal universities, and maybe even your dream universities. However, another important factor is your SAT or ACT grade, which you have not taken yet. If you do well on that, you will most likely get accepted by the college of your choice. You can look up information about colleges on the website http://collegesearch.collegeboard.com/
it lists lots of information about the college you search for, such as acceptance rate, whats required, common SAT scores, etc. Its a very useful website.

Wish you luck, Athena

Your Questions About Organic Dog Food Brands

Steven asks…

Have a Border Collie/Spaniel mix dog and want recommendations for the best dog foods.?

Which dog foods are the best for my dog? I am currently feeding him Iams dry dog food and he is pooping a lot. Is there a better food, and/or one that will stay with him better?

admin answers:

Yes there are much better foods out there. Iams used to be a great food until the corparate world bought it and started adding things like corn, byproducts, wheat, soy, dies, and artificial preservatives. The more natural you go the better. Here is a list of some great foods that i recomend and i feed the top brand….
Eagle Pack Holistic Select ( it has digestive enzymes to make the food even easier to digest and be absorbed into the system. Less cleanup, more immunity, lower serving size!)
Innova
Karma
California Natural
Wellness
Merrick
Natural Planet Organics
Oven Baked Holistic

just avoid corn, soy, wheat, byproducts, dies, bha, bht, ethoxyquin, beef, dairy,….

Jenny asks…

What vegetarian dog food would you recommend?

I understand dogs are not exactly meant to be vegetarian, but i am vegan and also want my dog to be at least vegetarian. What brand of food would you recommend? I have seen Natures Best and AvoDerm brands, but i would like recommendations from people who HAVE used the food or are vets and know a lot about nutrition for dogs.
I am not trying to “force it” on the dog. I feed her Science Diet but i want to also use vegetarian food because i feel guilty buying meat even though i don’t eat it.

admin answers:

I can understand completely how you feel…

Here is a site that sells only Vegan dog food.

Please note, I do not feed my dog vegan dog food but my sister does.

I do sympathize with the cruelty in which cattle are kept before being killed for food as well as the methods used in killing these animals. I am not against eating animals but I will not support specific companies who do not allow their livestock to live happy, healthy lives up until the point that they are killed.

This does not make a lot of sense to people, but it does to me 🙂

I purchase meat from a local butcher shop who only sells meat from his own farm. They are free range and fed only organic feed. You can go and visit his farm to see how his animals are treated. The meat is better quality and you can rest assured that no animals were tortured so that you can eat it.

You can do a google search for free range organic meats and poultry in your area or go to your local butcher and ask about their practices.

I buy my meat from the above mentioned butcher and feed my dog a raw diet. He is very healthy and happy.

Best wishes!

ADD: I forgot to post the link! Www.v-dogfood.com This is where my sister orders hers from online. You can also purchase it in stores, but there are none in the state where we live. She has a very healthy 8 year old rescued JRT

Michael asks…

What do you think of these brands of dog food?

Iams and kibbles and bits?
Why do you like them or why do you not like them?
Are they good food or bad?

admin answers:

Those are really bad dog foods. You are not going to find any good dog foods at the grocery store. In a good dog food, whole meat (chicken, beef, etc) should be one of the first ingredients. Canidae, ProPlan, Nature’s Variety,and Solid Gold are probably some of the best foods.

Start with a grade of 100:
1) For every listing of “by-product”, subtract 10 points
2) For every non-specific animal source (“meat” or “poultry”, meat, meal or fat) reference, subtract 10 points
3) If the food contains BHA, BHT, or ethoxyquin, subtract 10 points
4) For every grain “mill run” or non-specific grain source, subtract 5 points
5) If the same grain ingredient is used 2 or more times in the first five ingredients (i.e. “ground brown rice”, “brewer’s rice”, “rice flour” are all the same grain), subtract 5 points
6) If the protein sources are not meat meal and there are less than 2 meats in the top 3 ingredients, subtract 3 points
7) If it contains any artificial colorants, subtract 3 points
8 ) If it contains ground corn or whole grain corn, subtract 3 points
9) If corn is listed in the top 5 ingredients, subtract 2 more points
10) If the food contains any animal fat other than fish oil, subtract 2 points
11) If lamb is the only animal protein source (unless your dog is allergic to other protein sources), subtract 2 points
12) If it contains soy or soybeans, subtract 2 points
13) If it contains wheat (unless you know that your dog is not allergic to wheat), subtract 2 points
14) If it contains beef (unless you know that your dog is not allergic to beef), subtract 1 point
15) If it contains salt, subtract 1 point
Extra Credit:
1) If any of the meat sources are organic, add 5 points
2) If the food is endorsed by any major breed group or nutritionist, add 5 points
3) If the food is baked not extruded, add 5 points
4) If the food contains probiotics, add 3 points
5) If the food contains fruit, add 3 points
6) If the food contains vegetables (NOT corn or other grains), add 3 points
7) If the animal sources are hormone-free and antibiotic-free, add 2 points
8 ) If the food contains barley, add 2 points
9) If the food contains flax seed oil (not just the seeds), add 2 points
10) If the food contains oats or oatmeal, add 1 point
11) If the food contains sunflower oil, add 1 point
12) For every different specific animal protein source (other than the first one; count “chicken” and “chicken meal” as only one protein source, but “chicken” and “” as 2 different sources), add 1 point
13) If it contains glucosamine and chondroitin, add 1 point
14) If the vegetables have been tested for pesticides and are pesticide-free, add 1 point

Hope this helps!!

So…how do things look? 🙂

admin answers:

Well, I would say that things look pretty darn reasonable for you – and that is putting it conservatively. I went to an Ivy and my brother went to George Washington. To be frank, I can’t understand why you list GW along with Stanford, Yale, and Georgetown. GW, although a good school is not in that league. Well, not for undergraduate education anyway, perhaps GW competes with the others for some graduate programs.

I can’t speak confidently for some of the schols you listed but really think you ought to bump GW into the Ideal University section rather than keeping it as a long shot.

One of the important elements you left out is your SAT score or at least what our expectation is from and practice exams you took. The GPA and activities look pretty good but more detail on activities would also be helpful. Keep in mind that top schools look for depth rather than breadth so choose a couple of activities that you did best with, or the ones that interest you most to emphasize. The entrance essays also are given weight, as are your choice of reccomendations, so choose wisely.

Best of luck.

Paul asks…

How can I download a song to my iPod if it isn’t on iTunes?

I want the song Mary Jane by Collie Buddz but they don’t have it on iTunes. Is there somewhere else that I could get it from instead and transfer it to iTunes or something? I don’t want to have to get the whole CD and I don’t want to have to pay a subscription or whatever tho for some other site unless there’s no other way.

admin answers:

Easiest way is to download it from YouTube using the YouTube downloader (free) then get an MP4 to MP3 converter (free also). Rip the music track from the video, import it into iTunes and bingo load it on your iPod.

Sharon asks…

What is your favorite genre of music and why?

What is your gender?

Reggae music is my favorite by far. Especially older reggae music with a really slow tempo and the deep bass line.
Some good artists, for me, are: Collie Buddz, Inner Circle, Rootz Underground, Dub Syndicate, SOJA, and of course, Bob Marley. I also like Slightly Stoopid and The expendables.
-Male
I also like blues music. Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf are my favorites. I also agree that today’s music is mostly crap.

admin answers:

Blues, especially Blues guitar. Because I have the blues a lot.

Stevie Ray Vaughn; Muddy Waters; Clarence ‘Gatemouth’ Brown’; Bonnie Raitt, etc.

Your Questions About Organic Dog Food Reviews

William asks…

What is the best food to feed my Pomeranian?

Yep. I buy him pedigree food, but I do not know if it is any good. I tried researching online on what is the best food for him, but it is ridiculous, I cannot find a thing. What brand is best for him? What type of food is best for him? It doesn’t even have to be a dog brand. For instance, maybe I could just feed him chicken with no salt on it, I don’t know. I need direct answers, not the vague ones that I find online. Thanks.

He is an eight-year-old, male Pomeranian. He is not overweight. He seems to be quite healthy. I always give him exercise. He will eat whatever I give him. His teeth are healthy. He has no health problems or diseases.

Helen asks…

what foods are good for Bichon Frises eat?

my dog doesn’t like the ceareal food
my dog isn’t a lab and he’ll just spit out all of that ceareal dog food out.

admin answers:

Cereal… Food?

Not all pet food is made equally. A lot of it is full of corn, by-products, dyes, unhealthy preservatives, filler grains and all sorts of nasty stuff. A lot of pet food companies are perfectly happy to the dump cheap leftovers and things that aren’t safe for human consumption (from human food processing plants) into their foods. Will it kill your dog? No, it has to be nutritionally complete and safe to even be marketed. Is it healthy? Not by a long shot.

Corn is a low quality ingredient you never want to see in your pet food. Corn and low quality grains are two of the biggest culprits when it comes to food allergies in our pets.

Thankfully, there are some excellent dog foods being made these days that include organic, human grade ingredients rather than trash not fit for human consumption.

Examples of low quality foods to avoid: Anything you can find in a grocery store will be low end, Purina, Iams, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Royal Canin, Pedigree, Kibbles n’ Bits, Beneful, Ol’Roy.

Examples of high quality foods to look for: Innova, Wellness, Solid Gold, Canidae All Life Stages, Fromm Four Star, Merrick, GO Natural, Nature’s Variety Prairie, Nature’s Logic, Artemis Fresh Mix, Timberwolf Organics.

Although the high quality foods are more expensive, you’re getting what you’re paying for. Less filler material means more concentrated nutrients… This means you typically need to feed far less of the high quality food than you would of the low quality one. Which also means less poop!

Before following your vet’s food recommendation, keep in mind that vets get /very/ little nutritional training during their schooling. Besides that, what training they /do/ get is usually sponsored or taught by the crappy pet food companies! They also often get paid to sell some of their products at their clinics (Science Diet, Royal Canin etc.)

A great option is to go with an entirely grainless diet. Many of the high quality foods now put out grainless formulas. Some good grainless diets include: Innova EVO, Wellness CORE, Blue Wilderness, Nature’s Variety Instinct, Orijen, Horizon Legacy, Merrick Before Grain, Canidae Grain Free All Life Stages, Fromm Surf & Turf, Now! And Sold Gold Barking At The Moon, Taste of the Wild.

Some pretty decent foods can even be found in common pet stores. Petsmart carries Blue Buffalo products (such as the excellent grain free diet Blue Wilderness). Petco carries Wellness, Solid Gold, Natural Balance, Eagle Pack Holistic, Blue Buffalo, Castor & Pollux Organix, Pinnacle, and Halo. If you can’t find a food, most of the high quality food brands have websites with store locators on them.

Another option, if you can’t find anywhere around you that sells good foods, is to order your pet food online. Here’s an excellent place to do so: http://www.petfooddirect.com/store/

Remember that foods should be switched gradually (mixing new slowly in with the old over about a two week period), especially when switching to a higher quality one, so as not to upset tummies.

Another option for feeding dogs is to feed raw. This is something that should be thoroughly researched before being attempted:

Thomas asks…

what is a good dog food for a german shepherd?

i have a 3 month old german shepherd and
what is a good food to feed him …..
right know im feeding him purina puppy
what do u suggest

admin answers:

You can find MUCH better than Purina.

There is no food that is the *best*, different individual dog may thrive on different foods. What is best for one may not be the best for the next. And just because a food is good quality, it doesn’t mean it will jive the best for your dog.

What you want to find is the HIGH-QUALITY food that *your dog* does best on.

=== === ===

Read the ingredients before you buy. Go with a high-quality dog food.

Here is my “short list” of rules when I am looking at dog food ingredients:
1) When I chose a dog food, I chose one high meat content. I want to see preferably at least 2-3 out of the top 5 ingredients be meat or meat meal (first ingredient must be!). Meal is simply the meat with the moisture removed.
2) I want to see higher quality grains, such as barley, brown rice, and oatmeal, instead of seeing wheat and corn. Or an alternative starch/carbohydrate such as potatoes or sweet potatoes.
3) I don’t want to see any byproducts.
4) I don’t want to see a lot of fillers.
5) I don’t want to see preservatives that are believed to be carcinogens (BHA, BHT, ethoxyquin).
6) I don’t want to see artificial colorings such as the Red, Blue, and Yellow dyes.
7) I don’t want to see added sugars (sugar, corn syrup).
8) I don’t want to see mystery meats (meats identified only as “meat” or “poultry”.)

Here is an article about byproducts:
http://www.dogfoodproject.com/index.php?page=ingrd

And an article on what ingredients to avoid:
http://www.dogfoodproject.com/index.php?page=badingredients

Here are some examples of high quality foods:
* Artemis
* California Natural
* Canidae
* Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul
* Eagle Pack Holistic Selects
* EVO
* Fromm
* Innova
* Merrick
* Nature’s Variety
* Orijen
* Solid Gold
* Taste of the Wild
* Timberwolf Organics
* Wellness

Or check this website; the 4, 5, or 6 star rated foods are all good foods, 3 or less stars I would stay away from. Http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/dog_food_reviews/

Higher quality food may seem more expensive at first, but it evens out. The higher quality the food, the less fillers eaten (and therefore the less poop comes out the other end). Your dog eats more of a low-quality food to try to get the nutrition it needs, and most of the food just passes right on through. Also, higher-quality food will make your animals healthier, so you save money on vet bills in the long run.

Stay away from grocery stores brands. They are low-quality foods chalk full of fillers, preservatives, dyes, etc.. (Grocery store foods are those like Beneful, Old Roy, Alpo, Pedigree, etc.)

Beware “premium” foods. “Premium” does not always mean good nutritionally, and is not a nutritionally high quality food. Most of these foods have the same types of ingredients as grocery store foods, just a bit better quality of those not-so-good ingredients. (Premium foods are those like Iams, Eukanuba, Science Diet, etc..)

Another thing to be wary of: A lot of vets will recommend what they sell in their office. They get profit from the brands they keep on their shelves, that’s why they push it. Truth is, vet schools don’t focus a lot on nutrition. It’s not saying that a vet is a bad vet because he recommends those foods, a lot of vets just are told “this is good food”, so they pass the message along without proper nutrition knowledge. Also, some dog food brands (like Hills) support vet schools, so vets have heard of it from the time they start college, which makes them think it’s good as well.

Hills company, the makers of Science Diet, are heavily involved in vet schools. “Hill’s scientists author more than 50 research papers and textbook chapters each year and teach at leading schools of veterinary medicine” (Source of quoted section: http://www.hillsvet.com/zSkin_2/company_info/company_info_general.jsp?JSESSIONID=HMz2B3Jn3hv0rnSoxCobfbBhOec35ODG7yh5t3P0vcvhOtzRlQ9M!598359213!167846923!7005!8005&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302026072&bmUID=1196192566575 )

“Big box” petstores like Petco and Petsmart rarely have quality foods. (I do believe that PetCo sells “Solid Gold” and “Natural Balance” brands and Petsmart sells “Blue Buffallo”, which are all higher quality foods, but most of the foods aren’t.)

Also, grocery stores and Walmart aren’t good places to buy food either.

Your best bets for getting quality dog food are:
– small, locally owned petstores
– dog boutiques
– farm supply stores

When switching foods, do it gradually. I do this over about a two week timespan:
25% food A, 75% food B
50% food A, 50% food B
75% food A, 25% food B
100% food A

Lots of extra curricular stuff you got
GPA is a little on the low-ish side, and the ranking 28/380 is a bit weak so to speak
Get GPA higher, and try climbing your rank up a bit too.

But, without your AP exam scores or your SAT’s scores I can’t really fully judge

With all your extra curricular activities I’m sure you’ll be a highly sought after candidate, though

yale and stanford and maybe even GW uni will be hard to get into if you don’t have 2100+ SAT scores. I know people say it’s not all about SAT scores, but they’re big on it, since a lot of people have your resume but with better grades and scores, too

Your Questions About Organic Dog Food Petsmart

Jenny asks…

My dogs smell and bathing does not seem to work?

After bathing my 2 dogs they smell fine for a couple of days and then they start to smell again. They are not rolling in anything and they stay indoors most of the time. I have tried a couple of differant shampoos and keep their bedding clean.

admin answers:

How often are you bathing? If you are overbathing, it is drying out their skin and causing their bodies to go into overdrive to produce more oils to lubricate the skin.

Do their anal glands need to be expressed?

What are you feeding? A low quality dog food will end you up with stinky dogs.

Not all pet food is made equally. A lot of it is full of corn, by-products, dyes, unhealthy preservatives, filler grains and all sorts of nasty stuff. A lot of pet food companies are perfectly happy to the dump cheap leftovers and things that aren’t safe for human consumption (from human food processing plants) into their foods. Will it kill your dog? No, it has to be nutritionally complete and safe to even be marketed. Is it healthy? Not by a long shot.

Corn is a low quality ingredient you never want to see in your pet food. Corn and low quality grains are two of the biggest culprits when it comes to food allergies in our pets.

Thankfully, there are some excellent dog foods being made these days that include organic, human grade ingredients rather than trash not fit for human consumption.

Examples of low quality foods to avoid: Anything you can find in a grocery store will be low end, Purina, Iams, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Royal Canin, Pedigree, Kibbles n’ Bits, Beneful, Ol’Roy.

Examples of high quality foods to look for: Innova, Wellness, Solid Gold, Canidae All Life Stages, Fromm Four Star, Merrick, GO Natural, Nature’s Variety Prairie, Nature’s Logic, Artemis Fresh Mix, Timberwolf Organics.

Although the high quality foods are more expensive, you’re getting what you’re paying for. Less filler material means more concentrated nutrients… This means you typically need to feed far less of the high quality food than you would of the low quality one. Which also means less poop!

Seriously on a budget? Two of the most affordable of the high quality foods would be Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul and Canidae All Life Stages.

Before following your vet’s food recommendation, keep in mind that vets get /very/ little nutritional training during their schooling. Besides that, what training they /do/ get is usually sponsored or taught by the crappy pet food companies! They also often get paid to sell some of their products at their clinics (Science Diet, Royal Canin etc.)

A great option is to go with an entirely grainless diet. Many of the high quality foods now put out grainless formulas. Some good grainless diets include: Innova EVO, Wellness CORE, Blue Wilderness, Nature’s Variety Instinct, Orijen, Horizon Legacy, Merrick Before Grain, Canidae Grain Free All Life Stages, Fromm Surf & Turf, Now!, Sold Gold Barking At The Moon, Ziwipeak, and Taste of the Wild.

Some pretty decent foods can even be found in common pet stores. Petsmart carries Blue Buffalo products (such as the excellent grain free diet Blue Wilderness). Petco carries Wellness, Solid Gold, Natural Balance, Eagle Pack Holistic Select, Blue Buffalo, Castor & Pollux Organix, Pinnacle, and Halo.

Lizzie asks…

What kind of cat food is best?

For adult cats? I’ve done a lot of research for my dogs but are there also sites out there for cat foods like they have with dog foods? Thanks!

admin answers:

Please never feed Iams. They’re #1 on the list when it comes to animal lab testing/killing.
I would actually vote for EVO. It’s an all organic food, but you can’t buy it at chain stores like Petsmart or Petco.

Chris asks…

What is the difference between purina puppy chow :all puppies and purina puppy chow :large breed puppies?

My parents accidental bought purina puppy chow for all puppies instead of the puppy chow for large breed puppies. Should we take the bag back and get the large breed puppy food or is the all puppy food fine for her. Does she need the joint lubrication stuff in her food or will she be fine in the future and not get any joint problems unless she is overweight or getting old?

admin answers:

Purina puppy chow is crap, no matter what type, so I’d just switch to a higher quality food.

Not all pet food is made equally. A lot of it is full of corn, by-products, dyes, unhealthy preservatives, filler grains and all sorts of nasty stuff. A lot of pet food companies are perfectly happy to the dump cheap leftovers and things that aren’t safe for human consumption (from human food processing plants) into their foods. Will it kill your dog? No, it has to be nutritionally complete and safe to even be marketed. Is it healthy? Not by a long shot.

Corn is a low quality ingredient you never want to see in your pet food. Corn and low quality grains are two of the biggest culprits when it comes to food allergies in our pets.

Thankfully, there are some excellent dog foods being made these days that include organic, human grade ingredients rather than trash not fit for human consumption.

Examples of low quality foods to avoid: Anything you can find in a grocery store will be low end, Purina, Iams, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Royal Canin, Pedigree, Kibbles n’ Bits, Beneful, Ol’Roy.

Examples of high quality foods to look for: Innova, Wellness, Solid Gold, Canidae All Life Stages, Fromm Four Star, Merrick, GO Natural, Nature’s Variety Prairie, Nature’s Logic, Artemis Fresh Mix, Timberwolf Organics.

Although the high quality foods are more expensive, you’re getting what you’re paying for. Less filler material means more concentrated nutrients… This means you typically need to feed far less of the high quality food than you would of the low quality one. Which also means less poop!

Before following your vet’s food recommendation, keep in mind that vets get /very/ little nutritional training during their schooling. Besides that, what training they /do/ get is usually sponsored or taught by the crappy pet food companies! They also often get paid to sell some of their products at their clinics (Science Diet, Royal Canin etc.)

A great option is to go with an entirely grainless diet. Many of the high quality foods now put out grainless formulas. Some good grainless diets include: Innova EVO, Wellness CORE, Blue Wilderness, Nature’s Variety Instinct, Orijen, Horizon Legacy, Merrick Before Grain, Canidae Grain Free All Life Stages, Fromm Surf & Turf, Now! And Sold Gold Barking At The Moon, Taste of the Wild.

Some pretty decent foods can even be found in common pet stores. Petsmart carries Blue Buffalo products (such as the excellent grain free diet Blue Wilderness). Petco carries Wellness, Solid Gold, Natural Balance, Eagle Pack Holistic, Blue Buffalo, Castor & Pollux Organix, Pinnacle, and Halo. If you can’t find a food, most of the high quality food brands have websites with store locators on them.

Another option, if you can’t find anywhere around you that sells good foods, is to order your pet food online. Here’s an excellent place to do so: http://www.petfooddirect.com/store/

Remember that foods should be switched gradually (mixing new slowly in with the old over about a two week period), especially when switching to a higher quality one, so as not to upset tummies.

Another option for feeding dogs is to feed raw. This is something that should be thoroughly researched before being attempted:

admin answers:

I really can’t say much in terms of your “dreams” – I completely struck out on competitive college admissions.

You should get into most (if not all) of your “ideals” and “safes”, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see scholarship offers either. You’ve got a wide variety of out-of-school activities and a good GPA. Usually, a 3.75 weighted GPA and SAT/ACT around 2000/32 is good for a 1/4 – 1/2 half scholarship at some of the universities you’re considering. You’ll have to do your own research there, though – it varies from university to university.

Great job keeping track of all of your volunteer and extracurricular activities – you will love life come senior year, and your applications will be much stronger as a result.

I know this does not directly answer your question, but if you are looking to do more perhaps this will interest you.

Here is an idea where you can accomplish something worthwhile and demonstrate you have many skills such as leadership, organizational skills etc:

Start a cybermentoring program.

You can easily start this program at your school. It is is fun to do, will make a difference in people’s lives (and will look great on your college applications also). A full guide with EVERYTHING you need is at: www.OnGiantsShoulders.org ; (note: NOT .com).

Your credentials are great and GPA is solid. Unfortunately, solid doesn’t cut it for the ivy league schools because there are people who devote all their time and lives to school so they can go be ivy-league (boring). I think your Targets schools are on the money, and you should easily get into at least one of them. So the safety schools are nice to have but not really necessary.

Paul asks…

Are there ways to help prevent ear infections in dogs? ?

My floppy eared dog has cronic ear infections. What are some things that I can do to help prevent them.
Thanks so-far everyone!! Just a few more details… I do take her to the vet every time. I don’t take chances and try to do it myself. I am just trying to look for ideas so they are not so frequent. She has had 8 ear infections in the last year. They are sometimes yeast infections. I make her own food due to her many food allergies. Her current diet consists of Chicken breast, brown rice, green beans and carrots. I only feed her apple slices, hard boiled eggs or raw carrots for a treat. So, maybe she is getting too much chicken…I’ll switch it up and try lamb or hamburger next time I make it. I also feed her about a half of cup of plain yogurt every other day to help with the yeast.

I try to keep her ears dry (when she comes in and it’s raining, I wipe them down with a dry towel). I rarely clean her ears on her Vets advice. He too stated that over cleaning them can cause problems.

Again, thanks for the advice. I am just trying to find ways to prevent them. I hate that s

admin answers:

I second the view the ear infections are often immune system reactions due to either food intolerance or allergies.

Constant ear infection is not normal.

You don’t mention what food you feed – some things to consider:
– proteins are more often the problem – so if you feed chicken based diet – switch to lamb, venison or beef
– cheap food is never good. Forget grocery store brands and consider grain free diets (FROMM makes a good one)
– ideal world – feed your dog organic raw diet

Antibiotics are not good for long term infection. Cleaning them won’t prevent infection and can actually make it worse (secondary infection).
***********************************************
I would suggest raw hamburger, do NOT cook it and I would go easy on the beans and carrots. Honestly, they dont’ need many veggies – about 1/4 cup for a large dog like yours per day is enough per day. Make sure you cook them (steamed is ideal) – I personally don’t like giving raw veggies although I know some do.

I too feed raw apples – and nothing wrong with eggs. I have also found raw lamb chops a good option and I always give my dogs raw knuckle soup bones (do NOT cook these as they will splinter).

Bones are cow hocks – buy at least as big as your fist and start slowly if your dog has not had before – dog need calcium and these bones are great happy meals for dogs – but too much fibre at once can give them a tummy ache.

I do find chicken to be a problem in my Doberman – and regardless of quantity or cooked or raw – so I just don’t feed it.

I also use homeopathics – but if you are new to this, it seems intimidating (or maybe hokey).
Anyway, If you get tired of having your vet give you scripts for drugs that never work, here is another option.
It is a book worth buying written by a holistic vet – I’ve had his books for 20 years and never tire of them – a very good reference and emergency guide for $15 – he gives lots of recipes for sick dogs and some specific remedies for things like ear infections and other common doggie problems.

Its been a lifesaver for me.

Http://www.amazon.com/Pitcairns-Complete-Guide-Natural-Health/dp/0875962432
*************************
Last comment: If the dogs ears are inflamed – fast her for a day. Then begin an elimination diet to see if you can isolate if the problem is food.

Start with your brown rice on day 2 – nothing else. (except water)
Try the rice for at least 2 days.
Ideally by day 4 you should see your dog’s condition improved or even healed.

If you see SOME improvement, you know you are on the right track. Then you can try adding hard boiled eggs – to rice.

Do this for a couple days.

I would add the raw burger next, and then wait for about 1 week – ideally if the dogs condition has reversed and healed you know you can go forward.

Add new foods sparingly, one at a time, and monitor for a few days to see.

I have found if the allergen is removed completely for a period of days- then reintroduced, the dog will IMMEDIATELY begin showing symptoms (scratching followed by inflammation ).

If that happens, immediately note that food is not tolerated and eliminate it permanently .

Good luck
*********************
Dogs need 6x the calcium as humans – you don’t mention a calcium source in your diet plan. Raw soup bones are perfectly balanced for this (calcium /phosphorous ratio). I prefer bones to pills -calcium carbonate is not easily assimilated and your dog would need ALOT of it.
*****************
Sorry – last add. Fasting is fine for dogs of good weight and not suffering from wasting diseases (like cancer). Assuming your dog is otherwise healthy and a good weight – its a great way to detoxify and sort out her diet problems.

Thomas asks…

How do I tell my family about the horrors of factory farming?

My family is very misinformed on how they get their meat to be very cheap. Almost everyone has some kind of medical condition already. I’m the only one who has gone vegan and I really enjoy eating my whole foods. I buy my dog organic meat but they think its too expensive. I try to tell them but my dad is very cheap. My parents are so brainwashed by all the ads telling them its healthy way of eating. Its no wonder they’re getting sick and lack so much energy! I’m not even exaggerating at all. My mom always feels very tired and has anemia. My dad suffers from very high blood pressure. I just order them this book http://www.amazon.com/Healing-Whole-Foods-Traditions-Nutrition/dp/1556434308/ref=pd_sim_b_1. I know its not a cure for everything but diet does help a lot of people improve. I just hope they’ll get it. I don’t hate that my family eats meat at all but that they support that corrupt industry. I mean they can buy better quality. How did you approach your family about the agribusiness horror?

admin answers:

You have very nice grammar by the way- so I assume your 13- 18, but obviously you still live with your parents. You really- give in the fact OF living with your parents, you can not supply yourself and your dog. In other words, you can not afford tCherishsh these things. But I do very much wonder your age- because at around 15- 16 you could get a good job, and pay for some of these things, even 12-14, babysitting! If your able to support your self with your veganism and for your dog, let your parents be and go by your own terms. The book you have requested, was indeed a good choice, and hopefully yes they can understand for themselves the true meaning or nutrition and nutritaiol value.

admin answers:

I’ve never had a ringneck, but I was once told to use Harrison’s pellets for my BF Amazon, Military Macaw, Quaker Parrot, and Sun Conure. It made a WONDERFUL improvement in the appearance of their feathers, and their stools looked a lot healthier.

That organic food sounds very nice, too. I think either one of those two would be great.

The first ingredient in the Kaytee food is corn. Not an expert on bird nutrition, but I do know that not a lot of animals can properly digest corn. This is why your better brands of dog and cat food are advertised as having NO corn. I wouldn’t feed the Kaytee. Avoid anything with corn as the first ingredient. As a third, fourth, or fifth, it’s ok.

admin answers:

Unfortunately, until you have your test scores, it is absolutely impossible to tell a thing. Anyone who tells you otherwise is full of shit.
That being said, gwu isn’t that hard to get into. It is by no means easy but with your grades you should be fine with decent test scores.
Georgetown should be achievable with good test scores (32+ act).
For Yale and Stanford, a 34+ is necessary and even that won’t guarantee you a thing.

I think you have an excellent chance of getting into the schools you mentioned. I’d even say you have a good chance of getting into George Washington!
Stay on the track that you’re on and you’ll be accepted at a great school. And you’re only a junior, don’t worry about this stuff yet! Just focus on keeping your grades up. You still have a full year before you apply to colleges and your priorities might change in that time, so keep an open mind.

Your Questions About Organic Dog Food Sensitive Stomachs

Linda asks…

My dogs have horrible breath!!!!!!!!!! how to get rid of it?

i have 2 yorkies and they have horrible breath. we get there teeth cleaned twice a year. we even get special chewies from the vet that helps with bad breath and tar built up. we brush there teeth with organic mint dog tooth paste 3 times a week. we tried dog breath sprays, dog mints, but my dogs have a sensitive stomach so they can’t eat the mints or they will throw up!!!!!! is there anything that can help????

admin answers:

The Only Natural Pet Store online sells probiotics for dogs and cats. You just sprinkle it on their food. Like probiotics in humans, it’s full of the good bacteria necessary for digestion.

Helen asks…

My dog keeps eating grass, why?

I have heard when dogs eat grass it means they have upset stomachs, is that true? What could cause her to be sick and eat grass?

admin answers:

There are a few reasons why your dog could be eating grass.
The most common reason for dogs to eat grass is if they have an upset stomach. It will help your dog vomit if that is the reason. It could be that his dog food may be too rich or he just can’t tolerate it. So you can change his dog food. One of my dogs used to get sick on a regular basis and when I put him on a light version of the dog food he was on, he has done just fine. Or many brands also have a food for sensitive stomachs.
Other reasons are that some dogs eat grass is for the fiber. Their body tells them if they need something in their diet, so your dog may need more fiber in his diet. Once again, you can try changing his food. There are some who are high in fiber. Canidae is a good brand. It is organic and contains chicken and brown rice. Or try adding a spoon full of raw or steamed vegetables to his dog food. They are good for dogs, high in fiber, no fat and dogs love them. Try diced broccoli, carrots, sugar snap peas, cauliflower, etc..
The other reason dogs eat grass is that they like it and it just becomes a habit to eat it. They may have tried it as a puppy and liked it so they keep eating it. You can try to break the habit by getting on to him when you see him eating grass, if you get him to spit it out, praise and reward him. Any time he goes out and does not eat grass, give him a little treat and show him that you are proud of him. Positive reinforcement will show him that if he eating grass is not good for him.
Try changing his food first. Also, ask your vet if he can recommend a different dog food and if he can give you any advice with getting your dog to stop eating grass.
Best of luck with your dog. Hope I helped.

Maria asks…

What is the most Best Dog Food? Please read this! WILL GIVE 10 POINTS!?

Hi Everyone! I have four dogs. 1 Purebred Sheltie. 42 pounds. And he is 8 1/2 years old. 1 Purebred Yorkie 5 pounds And is 1 year old. 1 Purebred Shihtzu 4 years old. 13 pounds. 1 Purebred Poodle 4 years old. 5 1/2 pounds. Every dog is a good weight. They are all healthy. They don’t have allergies or stomach problems or anything like that. They have been fed Hill’s Science Diet for most of their life. We just feed the regular food. Nothing for allergies or sensitive stomachs, or anything like that. We have fed this food for most of their lives. We fed it to them because our Vet’s recomended it. Anyways I now know after doing some research that Science Diet is not a good dog food after all. So I’ve been doing research on other Dog Foods to see which one is the best. Please people READ this! I know that their is a lot of stuff. I’m going to list names of Dog Foods that I think are pretty good. I know this is a lot of Dog Foods. But please Read. I have done research on these Dog Foods to know that they are good. But I wanted other people’s descions also. Ok here are the dog foods. All of the Dog Foods.

– Ok that’s all of them! I know their is a ton of them! I have done some research on them, enough to know that they are good. But I need to do furthur researchand narrow it down to 1 dog food. These were NOT in any specific order. I listed them in. I just wrote them down. I am willing to pay any price. I want people to pick out the Dog Food(s) that they think is best. And give a few reasons why they think that it is good. And pick out a few Dog Foods that you don’t think is good and a few reasons why. And if you don’t think any of the Dog Foods that I’ve listed our good. Then say a few reasons why. And give the name of Dog Food that you think is good and why you think that. Well that’s everything! Please anwser this question! I will give you 10 points!
Also here is a website. If you have your own Dog Food how does it rate on this website? Also the ones that I’ve listed how do they rate and what does it say about them? (The ones you picked of courese) 6 stars is the best Dog Food. 5 Stars is good Dog Food. 4 stars is Ok dog food. And it just goes down from their. Their is a search box where you just type the name of your Dog Food in. Here is the site. http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/dog_food_reviews/
That’s the site. And please answer all of my many questions! Sorry about all of them. Will give 10 points!

So…how do things look? 🙂

admin answers:

I think you could get into all of them.

William asks…

Parents help me please, how much would you pay me to watch your child in this scenario?

Ok, so here’s how this would work, I would be watching the child of my mom’s friend (he goes to my little sister’s school and they are friends). And I may or may not be watching my sister too, but her son would be the main child I would be watching. I would probably be watching him two or three days a week all day over the summer.

Right now I am a lifeguard and so I am qualified in CPR, and first aid etc. and I also teach swim lessons so my pay is about $8.75 an hour because it’s just the local pool. I plan to keep my license up to date over the summer as well.

What do you think would be an appropriate wages per hour for being the nanny for her son? I looked online and it says that the average wages per hour for a nanny in Denver, CO (where I live) is like $21 an hour, but that’s for grown women who are working through a company and have more experience. I am only 16 so I don’t have a car, plus she is a family friend.

I just want some opinions you know? Because I would like to get paid at least a little more than I am now, but I don’t want to come off as greedy or rude to her because I don’t want to offend her.

Scenario:

Me-
Age: 16
Working experience: lifeguard, swim instructor (parents have requested me multiple times for private lessons because I am good with their children, and my co workers request to work with me.)
School: Right now I am in an honors class (english) and an AP class (US History), all my other classes are regular but I have A’s and B’s, accept for Spanish (a C but I am working on it!). I’m in Cross country in the fall, snowboard in the winter, and do Track: long distance running in the spring. Hobbies: Poetry, drawing, photography, volunteering at a horse rescue stable where I teach horse back riding lessons and work horses.
Other: I have a permit, but no license or car. (I will actually be getting my license a week after summer vacation ends, darn!)

You-
You are my mom’s friend because my sister and your son go to school together, and you are both vice presidents of the PTA (I really want to be careful about planning this because they have such a strong relationship). Your son is 9 years old and I have watched him before for a whole night along with my sister, and another one of their friends while the moms had a girl’s night.

Please keep in mind that even though I don’t have a license this doesn’t mean that I would be staying at home all day, both my mom and his mom have given me permission to take him on the mass transit bus and train. Plus it’s Denver, there are museums and ice cream shops every two blocks 🙂 They also have a pool on top of their apartment building. All I am trying to say is that I will make sure he has fun and we won’t just be sitting at home.

Sorry this is so long, but any advice from adults, grandparents, parents, uncles and aunts, anyone with kids would be appreciated. Thank you for your time 🙂

admin answers:

I am a parent. For full day babysitting, a daily rate makes more sense. It’s great that you are CPR certified and a good student, but don’t expect to make more just because of that. As a parent, I expect any teen I hire to be able to appropriately handle emergencies, otherwise, they don’t watch my kids. My sitters are your age and I would pay them a daily rate of around $40-$50 per day. I would also leave spending money, but would want to “approve” any outings; I may not go for all the activities you suggested; that can get expensive. Sounds like you are into him having fun, but a 9 y.o. Requires much less “supervision” than younger kids which is why I would not pay as much as you are probably thinking. With all new sitters (for both my kids and dog/house sitting), I always discuss the money w/them ahead of time and they have the option to accept or decline..but, we have never had anybody decline, which tells me our rate must be in the ballpark.

admin answers:

A couple things:

1) As a junior, you should probably have taken the SAT by now, or at very least some of the SAT subject tests. Most top tier schools require 2 subject tests (unless you’re submitting the ACT). Take the SAT soon!

2) You have a ton of extracurriculars, but many of your extracurriculars look like you’ve only done them for a year or two. Colleges prefer depth over breadth, so try picking a couple of areas and demonstrating dedication and passion.

3) Your GPA means very little as just a number. Schools will ALWAYS evaluate academic performance in the context of the school you go to.

4) GWU is much less competitive than any of the other schools in your “dream school” category. Georgetown is pretty competitive, but not nearly as competitive as Stanford or Yale.

You seem to have a solid beginning, but it’s too early to predict anything, considering that you have no test scores or essays yet. Good luck during this stressful process!

Your Questions About Organic Dog Food

Lisa asks…

Why is Timberwolf Organics dog food named that when its not organic??

Its a good dog food, but it is not organic like its name says.

admin answers:

You’re right, it’s not. It’s a marketing tactic. It is good food, but not organic.

Donna asks…

Why is everyone swearing by these organic dog foods?

Family has had dogs since I was a little kid and we never bought expensive dog food and all our dogs lived long happy lives. Was also told by a vet that they are all basically the same some just make the dog expel less waste.

admin answers:

Dogs are basically scavengers and they do well on most sorts of food.
In the old days I used to feed my dogs just plain dog biscuit kibble and breast of lamb or offal from the village butchers shop. There was no fancy complete foods in those days. Allergies in dogs was almost unheard of and my dogs lived long and healthy lives.
The dog food industry is big Business and they are all eager to make us believe that their product is the best and that if we don`t feed our dogs with their wonderful vitamin filled food we are guilty of not providing our dogs with a correct diet.
There are some good basic complete dry foods on the market that just use simple wholesome ingredients whereas others have all sorts of fancy ingredients that are not really needed by dogs and can cause allergies and digestive problems.
I think if a dog is doing well on what it is being fed and enjoys its food then stick with it.

Linda asks…

what is the healthiest dog food?

My bulldog eats natures variety raw organic frozen dog food..its very expensive and we want to swtich to a dry food or dry and add some of the frozen…He gets really bad allergies thats why we stayed with the same brand for so long..any suggestions?

admin answers:

My Dog loves the Science Diet Food. Lamb and Rice.

admin answers:

Pretty much anything by Cole Porter, also check out “thoroughly modern millie” esp ‘not for the life of me’ and ‘forget about the boy’. There’s also Bernstein’s Wonderful Town, which (although i can’t name songs) i know has lots of tap songs 🙂
Anything with a jazzy style, such as “Good Morning” from singing in the rain

Cole Porter songs –
Anything Goes (and most of the upbeat songs in that show)
Always true to you (darlin, in my fashion) from kiss me kate
Too darn hot – also from KMK

other songs-
42nd street
a few songs in “crazy for you” (it’s basically a gershwin medley)
some of “funny girl”
Bring In ‘Da Noise, Bring In ‘Da Funk
Walking Happy
Best Foot Forward
White Christmas
The Band Wagon
Sugar Babies
Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (and Whorehouse Goes Public)
Never Gonna Dance
The Grand Hotel
Will Rogers’ Follies
Tap Dogs
Stomp, Riverdance – in a way

hope that’s given you and your daughter some ideas 🙂
