Great Dane Puppy Food

Who Feeds Their Great Dane, "Blue Buffalo", Type Dog Food?

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

do you feed your great dane, the blue buffalo food, and is it good for great danes? and what one is best for a pup? I know puppy isnt good, But what adult food could we feed?

I wouldn't feed my large breed Blue Buffalo, its way too expensive in comparison to the other quality foods such as Innova, Solid Gold, Canidae, etc..And it isn't nearly as good as the foods I mentioned, either.

Recap- Kristel Walked over to Zoes and they headed out to the mall, because Kristel came into some money from saving a puppy named Dane.

We pulled up to the mall about maybe fifteen minutes later, while talking on the way about Dane, the puppy. We walked inside and look around the food court, and smelled the great smells.
We should go to Hot Topic! I suggested
Uh..Yeah! Zoe strongly agreed
We start walking over to our favorite store, Hot Topic, thats the best store we are emo, like Goth people and this is the best store for us, that and Spencers.
What should we buy? I asked
I dont know.
How about some pants?
Yeah, You going to buy for your best buddy too? She said while giving me puppy dog eyes.
I suppose. I answered
We walk through the store and grab some stuff we head to the check out and put all of our stuff on the counter. The clerk checks it all out, and tells me the total.
Fifty two dollars and seven cents. Said the clerk
Ok I said and pulled the fifty out, while Zoe pulled out a ten and helped pay, we gave the money to the clerk and she gave us back seven dollars and ninety three cents. We walked out of the store with bags in hand, and walked to Spencers. We looked around and decided to buy two belts I bought a pink and black one with checkers. Zoe bought one that was neon green. The total came to seventeen dollars and thirty seven cents, Zoe paid since I bought her pants.
We head to the food court and decide what we should eat, I buy a orange Julius and a cheeseburger. Zoe gets a coke, and a cheeseburger. We find a table near some hot guys and nibble at out food. We finish and I look at the time.
Its already four. I said
Wow. Time flies by when your at the mall. Zoe said
I know, how does that work?
I have know idea.
I laugh and take a big sip of my smoothie, and get up. We walk out of the mall and get into Zoes car. We drive off to Ericas and ring the doorbellwaitingwaiting…

Whats a Good Food for Great Danes?

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

I have a great dane puppy what is a good food for her thats reasonably priced?

Do NOT feed your Dane puppy any puppy food of any kind not even large breed. Puppy foods can cause some very serious growth issues in Danes. The protein, fat & calcium is too high. Find a good quality adult food that is 24% protein or less such as Canidae ALS, Wellness Super5 Mix Chicken, Merrick, Solid Gold, Innova (Not EVO since it is too high in protein), California Natural, Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul regular adult or large breed adult formula just to nmae a few.
Never feed any foods containing corn, wheat, soy or by products. Stay away from grocery store foods such as Science Diet, Purina, Alpo, Kibbles n"Bits, Pedigree and the like.

How Do I Get My Dogs to Stop Eating Puppy Food?

Wednesday, December 24th, 2008

I have 3 adult dogs, one Great Dane, one German Shepherd, and one Rottweiler. After we tried to change them to adult food, they wouldn't eat it. They only ate their old puppy food. We've tried a lot of different brands too, and they won't eat it.

Put it down and do not give them anything else. They will not starve themselves, they will eat it when they get hungry enough. It's time to practice a little tough love.

Make sure you're feeding a high quality brand of dog food.

Not all pet food is made equally. A lot of it is full of corn, by-products, dyes, unhealthy preservatives, filler grains and all sorts of nasty stuff. A lot of pet food companies are perfectly happy to the dump cheap leftovers and things that aren't safe for human consumption (from human food processing plants) into their foods. Will it kill your dog? No, it has to be nutritionally complete and safe to even be marketed. Is it healthy? Not by a long shot.

Corn is a low quality ingredient you never want to see in your pet food. Corn and low quality grains are two of the biggest culprits when it comes to food allergies in our pets.

Thankfully, there are some excellent dog foods being made these days that include organic, human grade ingredients rather than trash not fit for human consumption.

Examples of low quality foods to avoid: Anything you can find in a grocery store will be low end, Purina, Iams, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Royal Canin, Pedigree, Kibbles n' Bits, Beneful, Ol'Roy.

Examples of high quality foods to look for: Innova, Wellness, Solid Gold, Canidae All Life Stages, Fromm Four Star, Merrick, GO Natural, Nature's Variety Prairie, Nature's Logic, Artemis Fresh Mix, Timberwolf Organics.

Although the high quality foods are more expensive, you're getting what you're paying for. Less filler material means more concentrated nutrients… this means you typically need to feed far less of the high quality food than you would of the low quality one. Which also means less poop!

Seriously on a budget? Two of the most affordable of the high quality foods would be Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul and Canidae All Life Stages.

Before following your vet's food recommendation, keep in mind that vets get /very/ little nutritional training during their schooling. Besides that, what training they /do/ get is usually sponsored or taught by the crappy pet food companies! They also often get paid to sell some of their products at their clinics (Science Diet, Royal Canin etc.)

A great option is to go with an entirely grainless diet. Many of the high quality foods now put out grainless formulas. Some good grainless diets include: Innova EVO, Wellness CORE, Blue Wilderness, Nature's Variety Instinct, Orijen, Horizon Legacy, Merrick Before Grain, Canidae Grain Free All Life Stages, Fromm Surf & Turf, Now!, Sold Gold Barking At The Moon, Ziwipeak, and Taste of the Wild.

Some pretty decent foods can even be found in common pet stores. Petsmart carries Blue Buffalo products (such as the excellent grain free diet Blue Wilderness). Petco carries Wellness, Solid Gold, Natural Balance, Eagle Pack Holistic Select, Blue Buffalo, Castor & Pollux Organix, Pinnacle, and Halo. If you can't find a food, most of the high quality food brands have websites with store locators on them.

Another option, if you can't find anywhere around you that sells good foods, is to order your pet food online. Here's an excellent place to do so: http://www.petfooddirect.com/store/

Remember that foods should be switched gradually (mixing new slowly in with the old over about week or so), especially when switching to a higher quality one, so as not to upset tummies.

Another option for feeding dogs is to feed raw. This is something that should be thoroughly researched before being attempted:

http://rawfeddogs.net/ (Even more!)

http://www.rawfed.com/myths/index.html (Myths about raw feeding)

Also remember that freefeeding (leaving food down) is the fast lane to canine obesity. Make sure to have scheduled feeding times based on the feeding instructions on your dog's food.
