Creature Teacher, does that include the premium type foods such as Innova, Canidae, Natural Balance, Chicken Soup and some of those others? Or when you say commercial, do you mean the junk found in grocery stores? I'm feeding Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance. It's the one food I found that agreed with Lyric. He tended toward diarrhea with some of the foods with many meats, like Chicken Soup, Canidae etc. This one seems to work for him, but there's no variety. So..... That article is freaky. But when they give the sample diet, they include starches, veggies and grains, suppliments and vitamins. I thought that dogs in the wild don't eat much of that stuff and eat just meat. And I thought that meat was suppose to have everything in it that they need. Would that be raw meat and not cooked? But they mentioned the risks of raw meat. I have a friend who, if I buy the sportsman package, ($100) that is a fishing licence and hunting license (tags for bear, elk, deer, turkey) he will hunt for me and can almost guarantee a deer and a bear. If he's lucky, an elk.) I'd get 1/2 of what he shot. Plus I'd need to pay about $80.00 for butchering, wrapping etc.Do you think that would be a good idea? I don't eat too much meat, but if I had my freezer full, maybe that would be good for the dogs...no preservatives or antibiotics in wild game. I'd have to learn how to do this which is scary...gotta get all the suppliments and vit. right, plus that stuff for dogs prone to cardiomyopathy. So, what do you think? My Doberman is 93 LBS now and he'd need 3 times what that sample diet showed for amounts. That could be pricey if you bought that much meat in the store, right?
