WELCOME TO THE FOOD GROUP - This group was started in an attempt to present well-researched and FACT-based information on the amazingly complicated and confusing issue of feeding our dogs. There are also many issues we would like to explore. We thought it would be helpful to put all of these questions, information, and feedback into one place here on DK where everyone can find it, contribute to it, ask questions, and learn together.
WE ASK THAT YOU NOT POST ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PRODUCTS FOR WHICH YOU RECEIVE ANY TYPE OF COMMISSION OR COMPENSATION. THANK YOU.
IMPORTANT-PLEASE READ "FOOD GROUP GUIDELINES" BEFORE STARTING A NEW DISCUSSION.

Proviable Users, I Have Some Questions

My turn to ask for advice. :)Jasper's digestive system has gotten a little bit "off" the past few weeks. I'm chalking it up to new and different treats, and too many of them; the treats were being dispensed very liberally during the weeks leading up…Continue

Tired of the same food

Started by Stacy. Last reply by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle on Saturday. 23 Replies

I think this is an easy question. I think Maggie is tired of her food. She's been eating the same thing for a long time, and she's kind of blah on it. She's my most reluctant eater anyway.She's eating Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Beef. She's…Continue

I promise I'm not considering feeding the girls treats made out of Koji (Aspergillus oryzae) as the protein. But I was randomly browsing the internet and I stumbled across an ad for this, and I thought, "well that's the weirdest thing ever. I better…Continue

Karen, I'm hoping maybe you can give me some good advice (you always do) about supplements for our aging Doodles. Lucy just turned 10 years old and I am noticing a reluctance to get up and run around like she used to . She is slower to stand and I…Continue

Too funny!!!!!

Lol I thought you'd get a kick out of it.  It's pretty silly.

Comment by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle on June 30, 2019 at 6:59am

I acutally did watch this video just now, and I have to thank you for posting it, because I haven't laughed this hard in ages. I particularly loved the line "Most humans don't get three kinds of mushrooms per day!" ROFL!

Comment by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle on June 30, 2019 at 6:48am

I don't have time to watch the video right now, but Gary Richter is discussed in the Quackwatch column a lot. LOL

Comment by J and Riley (and Luna) on June 30, 2019 at 4:51am

For your daily laugh... I bring you this ridiculousness that was forwarded by my (well-meaning but gullible) mother-in-law.

Yes, cancer is definitely caused by your dog not having this stuff you're pushing! -_- *groan*  and of course EVERY dog food is deficient too!

Comment by J and Riley (and Luna) on June 29, 2019 at 5:39am

Comment by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle on June 18, 2019 at 1:26pm
