My breeder feeds her pups about 6 cups @ 6 months. She doesn't seem to keep weight on easily which has resulted in less intensive exercise with her for now.
I feel bad for switching her food a lot. I took her off of Orijen due to personal preferences. The cost of Orijen was fine.
She was on RC when I got her. I bought her a bag of it, then weaned her off of it when I bought Orijen. She was on Orijen up until about 3 weeks to a month ago. She was on the adult regular one and the fish one. She too, got things mixed into it. I also took her off of it because I thought it could have been contributing to her scratching as the breeder found her dogs scratched a fair amount on it. Whats good for one dog may not be right for another right? I found out that her itching is due to a (very annoying) flea allergy. Still battling this as we have outdoor cats and as much as we treat them, they will still come into contact with fleas.
So I put her on NRG Raw dehydrated Buffalo Vitality. Then I bought the chicken just to switch it up.
I just bought a purple bag of Wellness Super 5 mix. 6 pounds for $20.00
Also bought a pack of raw beef from the store to give her later on today to help her gain a little bit back quicker.
I've never heard of Horizon dog food. I'm guessing the Canadian website would have prices if you were shipping in Canada.
I don't know her current weight. Last time she was 42 pounds I believe? This was when she was 5.5-a week before she turned 6 months. I'm not comparing her weight to anything and I don't know what you mean by it either, sorry!
I don't know you guys! I do want to feed a raw or even cooked meat, diet. Dehydrated works because I don't have to worry so much about anything bad being in it as the process of dehydration basically kills the bacteria as far as I know.
I would love to buy a dehydrator and make her own food at home. I just don't understand why it's acceptable to pay more for vegetables which are pretty much the majority of the ingredients in raw dehyd.
Her parent's don't at all, look lean to me. Her siblings look healthy and strong. People think I'm starving my dog since having her on NRG and I'm not, it's just all going through her system because she has no need for such a high amount of veggies in her diet.
