At the store on Thursday, bought 10 cans of Friskies cat food - for my dog. 50 cents per can. Although they have a subtle taste of evil about them, my dog seems fine with them. I can give him 1/2 can for his morning mini-meal, and 1/2 can for his night mini-meal, w/ something extra thrown in here or there. Although I make a big batch of "wet" dog food, which is gluten-free, the dry food which I usually mix in with that contains 1/2 F&F dry food, which contains wheat - (the other half is "Bleu" grain-free$$$). I feel wheat in his diet is as bad for him as it was with my last two dogs, all of which exhibited similar health idiosyncrasies, possibly because they caught my CFS, who knows. (CFS isn't contagious for humans).

Well, the Friskies, so far, contain no wheat! So, I can make both his morning and night mini-meals wheat-free. These are the more important meals, as far as the stability of his stomach goes. Btw - I got the giant bag of F&F ("High Protein") dry dog food over a year ago, (with wheat), and it smells like the oil is gone rancid. I will be continuing to mix it in w/ the other foods for the foreseeable future, unfortunately. At least it comprises less than 1/4th of his MAIN meal now. But the slower I use it up, the more stale it becomes. But the faster I use it up, the more surprise deliveries my dog makes on my Living Room carpet.

I have often been giving him a raw egg in the morning, as most of his mini-meal. I think this is good for him. I also tried giving him raw, (bone-free), chicken a few times, and this seemed to help clear up the, um, indigestion. Special dog enzymes. I also heard that letting a dog fast for a day, every so often, is good for them. I have also found this to be true. However, this is easier said than done.

These stomach problems all began after he got his first vaccination at the vet. I have to walk him over there some morning soon when I am able, and get his latest shots and registration taken care of, or I will be in trouble soon. The stomach problems are related to the slightest stress, as well as any irritation of the gut wall, including bones, wheat, and rawhide dog chews, which are a Communist conspiracy.

"Hey, Boomer!" - Love that commercial. But the girl says, "I learned in school today that 60% of our bodies are made of water!"

What is wrong with that sentence? That's right, it is saying that 40% of all people are made of matter, and 60% of all people are made of water! The majority of human beings are bizarre WATER-BEINGS!

The sentence should be, "I learned in school today that 60% of our bodies is made of water!" Even better, "Each of our bodies is 60% water!" (Actually, I recently heard that the figure is 72%.

60% of you can't believe anything you hear anymore).

My last dog also seemed to love the Friskies. Usually we gave  him with gruel  in the morning and raw meat in the evening. However he loved to eat  EVERYTHING, he ate mushrooms, fruits, vegetables... I read that dried dog food is harmful for them.

Hi. I know you are someone who cares about dogs. Thank you for the add!!

But I have mixed feeling about this comment.

First of all, your Friskies and raw meat diet sound great.

But then I get to the part about fruits and veggies - ONIONS? - MUSHROOMS? - and I wince.

I think what needs to be done is that specialists have to discern whether or not these extra things are good for certain breeds, specifically for breeds closers to the wolf.

Its great that your dog did so well. Are there any veggies which you fed this dog which you have questions about, lingering? I never feed my dog onions, garlic, beans, (sugar), and etc.

Thank you for the add also, yes you're right, I do care about dogs. They're all so cute!
I think I misspoke, I meant my dog loved to eat things like fruits but I didn't feed him with it. I knew he loved it when for instance I cooked mushrooms and several ones accidently fell down on the floor, he would instantly pick it up and eat. I had a cooker spaniel and he was really obsessed with food. If he saw a food on the street like a gnawed apple he would definitely try it.
I'm sorry for my mistake, English isn't my native tongue so I can make mistakes-:(
Usually I didn't give him veggies, the thing is, every time I ate he would sit down in front of me and look at me like he hadn't been fed for ages and sometimes it was impossible not to give him a small piece of something :D

I do not feel you made a mistake. Nevertheless, I knew that you spoke another language. I was guessing you lived in Eastern Europe. I am glad to have a Russian/speaker on my flist.

It is good that you refrain from giving your dog/s improper food. Good! Not everyone does.

I've given my dogs pizza but stopped that a few years ago. I also gave this present dog avocado, until I learnt that was not good. And, I feel that some - maybe - all dogs don't do well eating wheat, so I try to minimise that in the diet. It seems to me that wheat (gluten) irritates their, (and my), stomachs, and causes allergy/nervous behaviour, like licking paws too much.

This present dog is uncontrollable when his nose for food, (or anything else), is in command, which is most of the time.

I don't give my dog mushrooms, either. But I think some veggies are good, in moderation: peas, broccoli, carrots, spinach, etc.
