Discussing Questions And Answers About Dog Food With Turkey And Sweet Potatoes

Ruth asks…

What human food can Dogs eat? ( List )?

Please make a long of List what human food my dog, Westie, can eat.

Jimmy answers:

Meat (chicken, turkey, beef, lamb)
Pasta/Rice
Vegetables (carrot, peas, sweet-potato)
Fruit (banana, apple, pumpkin)

If you want to make up your own blend of dog-food, from human food ingredients,

75% meat (of which 10-15% organs – liver/kidney/heart)
15% pasta/rice
5% vegetables
5% fruit
(with a drizzle of fish-oil 2-3 times a week)
An egg or a spoonful of yoghurt once a week as ‘extras’ to mix in is good.

And the occasional large beef marrow-bone to gnaw on.

Chris asks…

Dog Feeding Experts?

I’m thinking my pup (11 month old maltese) might have allergies, so before messing with vet, I’m going to try hypo-allergenic with him. I’m using Dick Van Pattens Venison and Sweet Potato.

I know food should be changed gradually, but is this also true when doing hypo-allergenic?

Please only answer if you’ve successfully done this yourself or know someone who has. thanks =)

Jimmy answers:

I’ll be honest with you, I changed my dog cold turkey from Royal Canin Maxi Golden Retriever to Natural Balance (DVP’s brand) Duck & Sweet Potato. My dog’s diarrhea stopped the next day.

Can’t say it will work for you, but it worked for me…especially when there is a suspected food allergy involved, my vet will usually tell people to switch cold turkey.

It’s a grain-free Costco brand. Their salmon one has a second meat source at #6, but their turkey flavored one has its second meat source pretty far down the list… Would you feed it to your dog?

Jimmy answers:

I would feed #2 to my dogs, only because Salmon contains higher amounts of purines that my dogs can’t digest.
