Every thing about food !!
 
Hey Guys. I'm planning to get a female GSD pup , about 8 wks old this august :D.I've Been doing
A lot of research on what to feed my new pup. Here's what I've been able to gather. Its a rather incomplete list and any help would be appreciated

For the first week , I'll feed her Whatever the breeder was feeding her and then slowly change to Royal Canin German Shepherd Junior

1 tbs Flax oil Every night for her coat

Raw Bones ( chicken leg) Every alternate day

Chicken every Sunday

I still need more info and can anyone please help me out with the amount and times to feed my girl

Congrats on your new arrival!:D

TERRIFIC that you are adding some fresh meat into your dogs diet!

Just FYI, you may want to purchase a better, healthier, kibble for your new baby such as the following:
ACANA REGIONALS (grain free): Acana Regionals | Acana Store locator: Store Locator | Acana
FROMM'S FOUR STAR (grain free): Four-Star Gourmet Recipes for dogs - Fromm Family Foods Internet locator: Internet Retailers - Fromm Family Foods
NATURE’S VARIETY (grain free): (not Nature's Recipe) Nature's Variety: Instinct Grain-Free Kibble Diets for Dogs | Nature's Variety Store locator: Find A Store | Nature's Variety


Royal Canin started using By-Products in 2013: Quote by Emmanuel FONTAINE, DVM, MSc, PhD, Dipl ECAR of Royal Canin: “You might have heard rumblings that Royal Canin is adding “by-products” in its formulas. Let’s make this clear: this is not a rumor, and this change will affect all our new formulas and upcoming launches.” BY-Products makes it VERY cheap for them to produce their dog food yet raking in high profit!


Here are the Ingredients From RC site:
COMPOSITION:
rice – No nutritional value to a dog and it’s the FIRST item on the list which means it has the MOST of! It should be a named MEAT – such as Chicken, Beef, etc!
dehydrated poultry protein – This is a BY-PRODUCT – Could mean ANYTHING that has feathers! Meat should ALWAYS be named such as Chicken or Duck etc.
vegetable protein isolate – bumps up the protein content in the food
animal fats – Another UN-NAMED animal ingredient! Could be elephants from the zoo! LOL :eek:

hydrolysed animal proteins – And STILL ANOTHER Un-Named animal protein!
fish oil – Even the fish is UN-Named….Should say salmon or sardine, etc.


No added Calcium as MyDogs said. Your kibble will have the correct amounts.



I rotate with the following 2 high quality oils which have combinations of Hemp, Coconut, Flax and different fish oils.

Sh-Emp Oil: SH-EMP OIL Nutritional oil The herring oil is a source of brain enhancing DHA/EPA, which can be converted by the body into Omega 3. Hemp oil is a source of Omega 6, 3, 9 and GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid). The virgin coconut oil found in Sh-Emp is a medium chain triglyceride rich in lauric acid.



Ultra Oil: Ultra Oil for Pets Skin & Coat Supplement with Hempseed Oil for Dogs & Cats
is composed of the best nutrients nature can provide. Our primary ingredient, Hempseed Oil, is a perfect balance of Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9. Next we have added Omega-6 rich Flaxseed Oil which is then balance with Omega-3 rich Fish Oil (sardine and anchovy) followed by Grapeseed Oil to help naturally preserve and act as an all natural antioxidant.



Hope this helps!
Moms:)
