Dog foods / Re: Which dog food to choose?!

I can't really add anything to what Dottie said but just wanted to say welcome to the forum. I hope you find something suitable and keep us informed about how things are going with your pup.

Having not had an problem with food allergy, I have not really tried grain free. Even when my dog was mostly on raw food, I sometimes added brown rice or quinoa. Like my own diet, however, I have tried to keep the grains unrefined. I do feel that many ailments in modern life can be linked to the overuse of refined carbohydrates in one way or another.  I know that I feel better when I avoid them.  I worry about the extent to which the grains have been refined in most commercial foods unless the labelling is clear.

Thanks Dottie, I had completely forgotten about that. I have bookmarked it now.

Hello and welcome to the forum Dog.
That is a lot of dogs who have owned you! I hope you will be able to share your experiences with them.

Raw feeding / Re: Raw Feeding
« on: Mar 14, 2017, 11:43 »
I have mostly fed raw but am having to reevaluate a bit at the moment. My dog is 7 (estimated) She is wanting to go out less, especially in winter, and is steadily gaining weight. While not overweight, the vet has advised that we don't let her gain anymore. At the moment I am feeding a mix of raw with plain oatmeal in the mornings and home cooked at night. I am trying to find out as much as I can to try and get the balance she needs.

I will be interested to see if we have any feedback on this. I find that I am often trailing between different sites when trying to gain a full picture, As you say, Dottie, Lots of sites look impressive but don't seem to have a great amount of information. I will keep my eye out now for some of the better ones.

Dog treats / Re: Recipes for home made treats.

Do you think Spirulina would work the same as the seaweed? I have recently been making a some small bite size treats with ground flax seed and goji berries, spirulina and dates to bind. They are mostly for me but the dog has been enjoying a small piece. She loves them but they are very sweet.  It would be good to have some other ways to add spirulina.

Thanks for the update Janey5, it is much appreciated. I am not sure if Mrharries still visits but I am sure your feedback will be useful for others. I have changed the thread title a little so that it is easily visible for those with similar issues. I hope your dog gets on well with the nutriment. If you could update with your progress, that would be great  ;D

Great news. The forum will benefit greatly from a pet nutritionist. It is great that you have joined  Red_Akita.

Lots of food for thought there.

I have to say I struggle with the water. I got  a filter but it seems to be less desirable than unfiltered for some reason. The bowl often remains untouched. She seems to have her fill from wherever I am washing her feet. ::)

Hello and welcome to the forum,
It is good that you have found some foods which are well tolerated. There seem to be lots of things happening in terms of different protein sources so hopefully you will soon be spoilt for choice.

Some really tasty looking recipes there. I may well try a few. They can certainly eaten by the humans too by the looks of them.

So pleased to see all these new cold pressed foods appearing. I will be even more pleased when somebody makes a smaller bag ???

Site help and suggestions / Re: Country of Origin filter

This all sounds useful. Both processing method and packaging are important to me and would be a consideration when searching.
