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.

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.

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.

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.


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 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!
