Is a complete raw diet, the best for my 2 year old dog? Is it better then kibble?
I want to start him on a complete raw food diet after finding out he has allergies. The vet recommends Science Diet, but I notice that his allergies only get worse , he throws up after his morning feeding, he bites at his paws and he has been gaining weight. Has anyone tried the raw food diet? Does it really work, any good recipe ideas and guidelines?
Science Diet is terrible. Vets know NOTHING about nutrition, they’re not taught about it. BUT, I have met a few vets that recommend raw, but the majority of them think that it’s a terrible idea, and want you to buy the food that they’re paid to advertise (Science Diet usually).
Anywho, I have been feeding my APBT & BC BARF for a few months now, and the changes are amazing!
They shed pretty much NOTHING!
They have a beautiful, glossy coat.
My BC used to have allergies, he had a horrible red belly because of his allergies. When he was switched to BARF, his red belly & allergies disappeared in a couple of days!
Their stool is very small and firm. And they don’t poop anywhere near as much as they used to.
My APBT has become sooo much calmer in temperament. Everyone who knows her notices the difference!
Although she is calm, when she’s running on the field she gets tired much less quicker, so she’s much more fit and healthy!
Better teeth. Very shiny. Their teeth used to be yellow when they were on kibble. Now they’re gleaming!
I can’t think of anymore at the moment. Except that I am confident their lives are going to be much happier and healthier now they’re on this diet.
Now, this is what I feed my dogs:
60% RBMs (raw meaty bones, like chicken wings and lamb ribs), 40% meat (including muscle meat like necks and heart), and 10 % offal (Liver, Kidney, Lungs, Brain).
This is my weekly menu for my two Mutts, their diet consists mainly of chicken:
AM- minced chicken
PM- chicken RMBs (Carcasses, wings, legs, necks)
AM- minced chicken with bone
PM- Minced Turkey
AM- minced lamb with pureed veg & fruit (but veg & fruit is NOT essential)
PM- chicken RMBs
AM- minced green tripe
PM- chicken RMBs
AM- turkey necks
AM- minced green tripe with one whole egg**
AM- Minced Turkey
PM- Meaty Rib bones
**I let them crack the egg themselves and lick out the yolk, once they’re done I ground up the shell because it has no nutritional value unless it is ground, and I sprinkle it over their food.
Everyday I add Cod Liver oil to their food, along with Seaweed powder, Vitamin C, Garlic, Glucosamine & Chondroitin and once a week a teaspoon of dessicated coconut to help keep the worms at bay. This is NOT essential, a dog does NOT need any supplements in a raw diet as they already have everything they need in the meat. I just feel that it benefits their health and their coat.
A dogs digestive system was not built to digest grains, which you can find in most, if not every, bag of kibble. Raw is a grain free diet! There is NOTHING bad in raw, you know exactly what you’re feeding your dog.
I order my meat from a company called http://landywoods.co.uk , if you live in the UK, I reccomend using them. Their meat is very cheap, but also excellent quality.
Look at these websites. There is lots of good info.
I wish you good luck!
Is their any particular diet that works best for a fever?
Just wondering if there are any particular foods that are more suited for dealing with a fever. Common sense would dictate avoiding hot food and sticking with colder foods, but sometimes the most apparent answer isn’t the right one.
Actually, there’s no particular diet for fever alone. Fever is a sign of Infection. Your body is defending itself from something foreign and harmful that is why it increases the temperature..thus fever is present. You should first find out what is causing your fever before diving into a certain diet. Water may help.
I work out daily and eat well, what is the best diet pill for me?
I eat a healthy diet everyday. I don’t drink sodas or eat snack foods. My diet is based on about 40 percent of calories from carbs, 40 percent from protein, and 20 percent from fats. I use protein drink mix in place of some meals, and in other cases mix with food, or entirely make a dish focusing around it (never above 30g protein at once though). I also drink on average 5 pints of water a day, And if it is any count, i take a multivitamin everyday.
I work out for at least an hour everyday. Soon school will be back in and i will be doing workout for track. Besides track, I use the Insanity program by Team Beachbody for most days. It builds muscle in a lean way, and i have seen these results. Not saying it doesn’t work, but I still have a very small layer of fat that won’t leave me. I am 5′ 10 and weigh 138 pounds, that is around 19.8 BMI. I have a waist line of 28 inches and approximately 9% body fat.
As i type this, these things don’t sound like a reason to complain, but i know under my skin i feel my abs, hard and strong (They feel like hard tumors =P). Is there any recommendation of a type of pill that could finish this off? Im not trying to get bulky or anything, i just want to be lean and fit, and one of the biggest goal of this involves revealing the six pack that lies just barley dormant.
I am a 17 male, and don’t touch any illegal substance. If that makes any difference.
5′-10″ and 138 lb? Dude…you should be looking to add some muscle mass, not trying to lose weight. I understand that for track, especially if you run, you need to be lean, but frankly, you’re skinny. Forget the pill, and concentrate on what you’re doing. Your workouts seem right on target to shed fat and add muscle, so keep at it!!!
What is the best way to diet?
So I’ve figured out that no carb diets, such as Atkins, do not work, as they make you more hungry and not to mention a lot more miserable. I already run/walk for 1 or 2 hours every single day, and I do stress that “every single day”. What is the best diet, however? I would like to lose 8-10 pounds by next month. I’ve already cut out all junk food and sweets. What else is there to do?
Diets do not work. Lifestyle changes do. Eat less, move more. Eat four to six small meals a day with breakfast being your largest and dinner being your smallest. Eat the majority of your calories early in the day. Avoid sodas and junk foods.
Is Raw Feeding good or bad for my 3 month old pit bull puppy?
the vet said to me to put him on Science Diet food. but i work at a pet shop and they said that they all give there dog RAW MEAT and its the best because back in the days they will hunt for food. i want the best for him. what is the best food to feed him. Thank you so much.
Vets are paid to sell Science Diet. It’s a crap food, raw BARF diets are better and much more natural and healthier.
And no, they don’t turn any dog into a wild animal who goes and attacks random animals and children- that’s bull crap. The only reason a dog would do that is from lack of training, neglect, or abuse. Cujo was just a book, written by a very good author. But Cujo had rabies, and it’s a law to get that vacc.
