THE Best Dog food?


Recommended Posts

I used to cook up my small dog a gourmet home made feast once a month and freeze it and feed it daily.

We now have a mastiff and there’s no way I can keep up such a labour-intensive, freezer-filling indulgence.

Please tell me what the ABSOLUTE best commercially available soft food on the market?  

(No Heath-issues).

Donski, I know you asked for the best commercially made soft food, but won't you consider feeding, instead of you cooking up a home made feed, totally raw?  I find that the best.  If you put down commerially produced and raw in two bowls next to each other, they would discard the produced and go for the fresh.

What do you mean by soft food? I think Nature's Gift is an ok tinned food but no way would I be feeding a mastiff much of that. Is this a pup? If so did the breeder not give you a diet sheet? Such a large breed needs a very good diet. I'd be asking the breeder or other owners about diet.

I've found the Canidae brand is frequently on sale for about $100 for 20kg* at...it was either Best Friends Pet store or PetBarn. On this kibble, I've found I can actually feed my dogs less as they can gain weight quickly on it...which is downright unusual for my dogs! Previously I was feeding assorted high protein high fat diets to help keep the weight on and in excessively large meals. But on Canidar I could actually reduce the amount I gave them, making the bags last longer. I'm very pleased with that, health weight has been a challenge!

 

And on the side once a week I pass over all the local stores to see if there's any mince meat on sale. Last week I grab 10kg for $15 because the store had ordered too much. Split them into tupperware (I ran out of tupperware haha!) and then I mix them in with the kibbles. This combined with the meats I already had is likely to last about month being mixed into kibble (noting they get lots of pure meatball training treats and dehydrated treats)

 

Sometimes I grab Black Hawk and Science Diet mobility on a good discount too. My general aim is for 20kg bags at about $90-100, either on sale or through a voucher.


* But one time it was 20kg with an extra 10kg on top for free and I died from delight at that find! $100 for 30kg!!! Wow!
