    Unfortunately the more expensive ones are the best quality. Iams, Eukanuba etc. Vets sell them. Even Pedigree or Alpo would be far better than canned diet or rice, though.

    Raw diet is basically meaty (very meaty) bones, minced pork or chicken, lightly steamed fish with veggies (head and all), uncooked chicken carcasses, etc. Don't give offal too often, as it's too rich. I was recommended this diet when a load of our dogs got distemper and we pulled nearly every one through. It's fantastic, but admittedly, not as cheap as cans or leftovers. The bones (even chicken) are fine for dogs, if not cooked. Cooking makes them brittle and splinter.

    Ants and cockroaches eat anything but I believe the above to have some truth to it, however rice and meat soup alone is not enough protein for a healthy dog and Maggi is all salt.. Find him/her some fresh meat scraps from a butcher, not the prime cuts but the scraps, no preservatives or additives in that..

    I see that NR beat me to it above, I knew I shouldn't have replied this late in ..

    Archie is only on the pedigree chum dried puppy stuff for the first year, as recommended by the vet and another friend with huskies.

    First couple of days I just kept his bowl topped up and ants did get involved. So I glued the bowl to a plate and put water in the plate. Now he's on about 3 small handfuls a day so shouldnt be leftovers for ants anyway.

    I'd welcome any advice for feeding an 8 week old husky.
    Lang may yer lum reek...

    Do they have scraps in Thailand, they seem to have a recipe for everything?

    Chicken Tendons, Crispy Fish Bowel, how would they know what you mean when you say "scraps"?



    I can imagine it.

    "Do you have any scraps?".
    "What dem?"
    "The bits of the animal you don't eat".

    Fuck me, the ants ate through a sealed bag of bread yesterday. Today I put my port in a zip lock bag, they ate through that as well.

    They have been eating through packets and bags at my house too, everything is in plastic tubs and boxes now. Not altogether convenient to be honest.

    Don't know about ants and dog food. but our fish was becoming a bit
    difficult to feed.
    The missus started to put dog food into the aquarium.
    The fish was happy for a while and started to get fussy again.
    Back to fish feed and still happy!

    Do as the Thai's do and give them last nights left overs with some rice, that's all they need really, dogs in Bangkok do not really need to be fat as it is hot. Big pieces of meat in the heat is a bad idea. My pack of dogs eat rice and left overs with a nice juicy bone each once a month and the odd lay and dribble of Leo. Dogs love beer.

    Yeah.
    The dogs, like domestic cats or fowl, will almost always consume everything you throw at them - conditioned survival instinct.

    What they will eat & what is good for them are two entirely different matters. I've never found a dog that doesn't like Bailey's or chocolate. Should that be their diet? Leftovers and rice? well, if you want a malnourished dog, carry on. At least the Leo will keep them from complaining

    Meat is the real food, for humans and dogs.

    Dogs in the wild will normally make a kill only about once a week, gorge on that for a day then chew on the skin, gristle and bones until lean and hungry enough to hunt again.

    Dogs must eat offal, too, liver, kidneys, guts, the stomach contents of the herbivores they'd normally kill.
    So grains are actually part of their diet.

    They'll eat anything else, too, including herbage, fruit etc, even wood.
    Dogs will eat grass when they're sick, usually when infested by worm or when they have bowel infections.

    Whatever diet your dog's on, the worst thing you can do is let it get fat, a totally unnatural state for a dog to be in.

    A lot of dogs like fruit and/or veg. My Jack Russell loves veggies. You should see her after a roast dinner - polishes off the broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes, carrots, anything. Dogs actually can use some veggies in their diets, so if they like it, great. Just be careful of too many bananas, they're very high in potassium.
