    Im interested in what other people feed their dogs.

    Atm my 6 week puppy is eating Applaws dry small/medium breed food (75% meat, rest is veggies and grain free) with butchers wet (54% meat) just for his toy kong. So prob about a teaspoon 3 times a day atm.

    Hoping to try him on some raw food soon. I have some mixed up for my cats in the freezer so when i think he ready i will try him on some. Will try a piece of raw chicken wing aswell i thinks!

    Butchers in my area dont do raw meaty bones. Chicken wings will do for now rofl.

    My cats get porta 21 which is grain free and i THINK its 80% meat content and rest veg. And very occasionally they get butchers, and raw. My cats hate wet food usually and will taste raw. I would like to feed raw but they dont want to no if thats all they get :lol-sign:

    So what do you feed yours? Include your kittys if you like!

    Rosey gets Fromm (Grain-free) Gamebird Recipe.

    The ferrets get Acana/Orijen/Go!/Nature's Variety/whatever grain-free cat food I feel like grabbing that month.

    Rocky eats dry food, more especifically Kirkland, we tried raw for a while but he did awful. I want to try raw with the new puppy to see how it goes, if not I'm planning on feeding him Taste of The Wild.

    Currently everybody is eating Earthborn Holistics grain free... I think it's bison flavor?

    I'm struggling to keep weight on Steve again though so I might end up switching him back to raw, which is a huge pain in my butt.

    Bailey's eating Earthborn gf and Sojos beef right now. Buzz eats raw from Woody's or Canine Caviar Open Sky.

    Golden girl is eating NutriSource Adult and raw (shh, don't tell). Judging by how much of a medium bag is left, I hope I don't have to buy another for her!

    I feed raw, I find it the most economical way to feed and my dogs do super on it, I also like knowing exactly what goes into what I feed them.

    A little bit of everything. Maisy and Squash are on mostly raw, Pip is on mostly kibble, and everyone gets canned in their bedtime kong.

    At the moment, Jackson is eating Fromm. Just got off a bag of Beef Fritta, now he's on his first bag of Gamebird. Before that it was Earthborn Lamb and Acana.

    Canned food mixed in at least for one meal is Weruva. He's been eating that for over a year.

    We feed raw - a combination of ground and whole/larger pieces for their teeth and jaws.

    Saxon eats Canidae Lamb and Rice. He has allergies/sensitivities and this is the one food we've tried that works for him! So far, I've been really happy with it! I don't do raw because of my lack of freezer space and the price.

    Pre-made raw for the Chi's...sometimes TOTW, which I keep here in the house for when my son's dog is here, which is almost every day. She does very well on it. Some days I'll feed the Chi's that if I didn't remember to thaw out the pre-made or I'm in a hurry. But don't mix the kibble with the raw in one day's meals. The Chi's do well on either the raw or TOTW.

    I couldn't vote because I feed both raw and dry kibble. :p
