My mother in law used to buy ground beef and/or whole chickens when they were on sale, and cook them up, shred the meat up....then she would cook up some rice and mix the meat in that and put a serving size in sandwich baggies and freeze them....when it was time to feed her dog, she would grab a baggie and heat it in the microwave and pour it into the bowl.........We always told her the dog ate better than they did......:unsure:

Ok, well I'm officially freaked out! My dogs are both on Iams dry mini-chunks. It looks like just about every dog food out there is on this list!! OhMy I can't imagine having to cook up fresh food for my dogs!! Like I have time (or $$) for that!! :think: What to do!!!!

Looks like there are 3 options:

Starve the animal
Feed it possibly tainted food
Kill yourself making homemade food

I'm going with option 3. A local article I read said there are cookbooks to make homemade pet foods. I am going to try and find one so that I know what I can feed my cats.

When I went grocery shopping on Saturday I must have stood in the cat food aisle for at least a half an hour reading the ingredients on every single thing I wanted to buy.. I'm just avoiding anything with wheat glutein in it, for now.

I know what you mean, Debbie. The last I knew, they hadn't ruled out the possibility that "human grade" wheat gluten could be contaminated as well. (I'm not sure what it would really be called - but the wheat gluten that's sold in the baking aisle, anyway) I usually use that in my bread making, but ran out a couple of months ago, and just never got around to buying more. I'm not going to buy any now.

I'm going to try this http://www.canidae.com/ dog food (also comes in cat food), and is sold at Pet Supplies Plus. No wheat gluten whatsoever and no by-products...all human-grade. It's only about $8.00 more for a 40 pound bag than what I'm paying now for the Iams...not enough to break the bank, and well worth the extra $$ I'm sure.

The one my friend uses is from Petsmart and it's called "Blue". http://www.petsmart.com/global/search/search_results.jsp?In=Dog&N=2025894&Ne=2
I notice though that this one is much more expensive.

I'd much rather do the research and find the best natural dog food out there (and beware because that doesn't always mean 'safe') than to subject myself to making home made. There are some that are much more expensive than others...the key is finding the safe and healthy ones that still meet the budget. Thumbsup

Thumbsup That is a good idea Amy, besides, they are now warning against preparing your own, because you might not be getting the right nutrients in it for the animal..............Better safe than sorry. No

Innova, Orijen, Acana, Eagle Pack, and Natural Choice are all very good pet foods.
