Dog Food Suggestions/Tips
Before Ote lived with Shane for a year, she was being fed a RAW diet supplemented with Blue Buffalo dry food when RAW was not possible - a pretty nutritious diet. When she was with Shane, he fed her a lot of grilled chicken, veggies, and more - but she got used to eating people food and was turned off from dry kibble. Currently, I don't have the time to prepare RAW meals for her like I did before and looking back at photos - she looked really skinny when she was on that diet (that was also when she had all of the liver issues - which still exist but problems have decreased). I have tried feeding her Blue Buffalo dry and she absolutely refuses. She will starve herself and not eat for days. The only dry food I've found that she will eat is Chef Michael's - the most terrible food on the market. I let her eat this for the past month or so because I figure eating SOMETHING is better than nothing, even if it is of unsatisfactory quality. But I was wondering how I can wean her onto another, high-quality brand without having her starve herself. Do they offer samples so I can stop wasting money on full bags of food? Also, wondering what suggestions those with "picky eaters" have. I love Wellness and Blue Buffalo brand (even feed my cats the Wellness line), but I would even be willing to try out the pre-made RAW rolls that I've seen in stores, just not sure of the quality or if they are worth it. Any suggestions would be great!
Hopefully one day soon I will get back into meal prepping her raw food for the week, but I'd need a refresher course on that.
Be the person your dog thinks you are.
