What do you feed your pet?

Forgive me if this topic already has a thread. :hide:

I was looking to discuss the options on the market for our pets. Mainly Dog and Cat foods.

I started out my new best friend on Eukanuba. I soon changed food companies after reading comparisons, ingredient listings, production processes, and all the recalls that have happened in the pet food market. :shock:

I've been feeding my 2 dogs Flint River Ranch foods for over a year and a half. The company has never had any foods recalled and they seem to have every basis covered when it comes to quality. Does anyone else feed FRR products to their pets? If not, what do you feed?

The cost is a bit steep, but the food is dense with nutrients instead of fillers, so you ultimately feed almost half as much! The cost is more up front, but in the long run it pays off, since youre getting "better" quality meal and feeding less. Plus, it's less to pick up! :P


Hope we get a good discussion!

Re: What do you feed your pet?

I also wanted to ask another question.. How much does it cost/month for you other dog owners? Breed size would help determine costs more accurately. I currently have two 60lb British Labs that cost me $68/mo in just food. I dont think this is bad, but my mother thinks otherwise. Just wanted to hear some feedback.

Doesn't eat much but has been known to steal Christmas.


She eats Pedigree in the little pouches and some Pedigree dry food. I've tried just about everything from high dollar to cheap. Pedigree is about the only thing is not allergic.

Lots of good stuff out there for dogs.
Blue Buffalo
Solid Gold
Grandma Mae's
Nature's Recipe

We've tried about all of them but she is funny about the food. She'll eat the good stuff and two days later she is clawing herself to death.

Re: What do you feed your pet?

I know that Flint river ranch offers foods for dogs and cats affected with allergies.. They have foods with and without chicken, rice, lamb, veal, duck, you name it..

Here is a list of all ingredients they use.
http://www.frrco.com/ingredients.php

They mention "Our meats can be considered human-quality, similar in ranking to store-brand meats you would buy for your own family."

I find the company worth every penny. And my dogs fur shows that they are getting excellent nutrition.

I had first discovered these few articles which really started me thinking..

FRR Top 10 Reasons

FRR Pet Food Comparison

Feed the Best for Less!

"No fillers, preservatives, or by-products means you feed less, yet your dogs and cats receive superior nutrition!"

In no way am I trying to preach, just getting the word out about some great pet food!

Re: What do you feed your pet?

I love my dogs, but I don't think they need gourmet or fancy food, LOL.

The pug gets Iams Select and the Great Dane gets ProPlan. They're perfectly healthy and happy.

Not fancy, it's just without all the fillers, basically useless shit that they sell you. By-products.. The leftovers.. fat, eyes, intestines, all they shit WE dont eat, is going into the dogs foods. Preservatives.....

Re: What do you feed your pet?

Not saying you need to buy it, just that there is much better quality, safter foods on the market, if people truly DO care.

Because they know better? They'll eat anything, but it's our responsibility as owners to make sure its the right things.

That's up for debate (not to mention cost/benefit analysis). Like I said, I love my dogs, so it's not like I'm cheaping out on them. My pug is 14, almost 15, and still acts like a 3 year old dog. My Great Dane is 7.5 years old (life expectancy of only 6-8 years) and, according to multiple vets, has the joints of a 1.5 year old Dane. You're gonna have to come up with some better info to back up your claims if you want me to be a believer.

We recently switched our Border Collie to this:


Just because he's recently been diagnosed with cancer and trying to keep his diet regulated with him on Prednesone.
