Don't Feed Your Dog

Remember your dog is primarily a carnivore so don’t build the foundation of his dog food around carbohydrates and vegetables. Many commercial dog foods are full of cheap grain fillers, artificial dies and flavors.

Food items to avoid feeding your dog

  • Fake Dog Treats (Dog treats that look like bones, bacon or any number of tasty morsel but are made with grains and fillers are terrible)
  • Pasta and bread (Both are high carbohydrate dense food sources)
  • Hotdogs (These are highly processed and full of fillers and chemicals that are not good for your dog.
  • Sweets (Candies, chocolates, doughnuts ¬†and other assort sweet snacks. All these will help feed yeast in your dog’s system and could lead to a yeast infection.)

Hot dogs a chuck full of cancer causing nitrite. Heres a list of some of the additives in an average hotdog “sodium lactate, corn syrup, dextrose, sodium phosphates, sodium diacetate, sodium ascorbate, sodium nitrite”, yum! And this is people food that is held to a higher standard.

The best thing to do for your dog and yourself is to become a label reader. If the label is full of chemicals, dies and other assorted ingredients you can’t pronounce, don’t feed it to your dog.

  1. Hi
    My 8 year old lab Buster has colitis and I have been trying to find a diet that will help his condition (and also benefit him). I started him on the raw food diet 2 weeks ago, slowly at first with just chicken in the morning feed and chicken with bone in the evening feed, I have also been adding natural yoghurt once a day. He absolutely loves the food however his energy levels have slumped dramatically. My husband has taken some persuasion to change him over to the diet and now wants him to come off it. He fed him some pasta yesterday and he did have more energy…I want to try and steer clear of grains and cereals if I can. Any advice or thoughts on this would be welcome.
    Thanks.
