I have been feeding my AKC certified GSD both chicken and beef top ramen for 3 months. He's about 7 months old. As someone hit in the basic economy I have stopped buying expensive dog food. I make about 10 lbs of spaghetti noodles and poor tomato sauce in it and then for breakfast I make him some top ramen. He is fit as a fiddle..... FOR .20 CENTS A DAY YOUR DOG WILL HAVE THE CALORIES HE NEEDS and plenty of energy. Plus he loves the spaghetti and ramen meals.
