I didn't read the article, but I don't think we should be eating our pets.

Another useful post from you, Chainfire. Your attempt at humour fails dismally.

Thanks to the OP for the heads-up.

I’ve been through a rough time finding a dry food for our Jack Russell. At one time or another I’ve tried most of the ‘special blends.’ I’ve been discouraged by the various and sundry recalls that crop up. I’m convinced that most pet food manufacturers are in it just for the money and don’t really have much concern for the animals eating their products or the pet owners who pay good money for poisonous crap.

The one dry food I’ve found, brought to my attention by a friend, is called Fromm. I’ve been feeding it for going on six months and our dog is not only doing extremely well…but she likes it! She has a finicky appetite and won’t eat anything that doesn’t pass the ‘smell test.’ She’s not itching or scratching…which is a real plus for her!

Here’s the link. Anyone interested check it out and make your own decision.

I have 23 pounds between two dogs, so I can do this relatively cheaply. I go to stores that sell boneless, skinless chicken and buy either thighs or breasts. I boil them, cut them up small, mix in some peas and/or carrots and feed them that. As I said, you can do that for small dogs at a reasonable cost.

I have tried these two hounds on various different good dry mixtures. One where there is no grain listed in the ingredients. They will not eat it. I know how to do it. Put it down for ten min., pick it up, repeat the next feeding cycle and within a couple they will eat. However, my wife will slip them food and that makes it a waste of time. So in the morning they get some bil-jac mixed with a little chicken. The Bil-Jac is not great, but better then most as far as the grain mixed in.

The Fromm and others are way better, they just won't work for me.
