Feeding Your Dog What You Eat by megasamuel(m): 10:33am On Jun 03, 2015
I hear of lots of problems for dog owners who find it really pricey to feed dog food throughout
While some just feed them with what they(the owner) eat and the dogs have no problem
Is this really a good idea?
If you do feed your dog "what you eat" what is your experience.
Any opinion is acceptable

as good as it is, there are some foods you cant feed your dogs.

most people care less of what vitamins or resource they get from the foods they eat. as long as the tummy is full right?

just like feeding a little baby, you have to care about vitamins and minerals...cos the baby cant tell you when he/she is sick. same as dogs.

but ive seen some local dogs live fine and some 'other' dogs have big problems...so i guess beeing too careful is not too good.

in conclusion, a mix of both would work very fine...dry food and home foods. dont just leave your dog at one type of food. try varieties.

dont forget to notice the foods your dog dont like....some dogs throw up after taking yam, one of my dogs doesnt like pork...etc.

also check out foods that are dangerous to dogs..

One cannot completely do without feeding our dogs some of the food we eat.However,this should be done with caution and close monitoring.Mixing the food with fresh meat or finely prepared shawa fish will provide the required nutrients your dogs needs.
Below are samples of human food I give my dogs;

1.Indomie with fresh foetus/shawa/titus
2.Rice with fresh foetus/shawa/titus
3.Potato with fresh foetus/shawa/titus

The truth of the matter is that,feeding them dogs food alone is very very expensive and it does not even guarantee 100% of what they require.

Just be observant and switch feeds where necessary.

One of my dogs would only eat homemade or dry food, while others are used to raw food.

what exactly do you refer to as raw food, and what's the percentage of a healthy dog with it?

Feeding your dog what you eat seems more convenient and cheaper but it's NOT advisable you keep changing the food like you change yours. Experts will say maintain one type of food for the most part.
ONE THING YOU MUST HAVE AT THE BACK OF YOUR MIND IS THAT THEY REQUIRE MORE PROTEIN THAN YOU DO. So no matter the type of food your dog has become used to just maintain at least 30% protein(of diverse sources where possible) for a full grown adult dog and 40% for a puppy. Note that as it's not advisable to keep changing the food type, you may have to change protein sources by mixes.
You can obtain the right food supplement from the vets of which some dogs may have to take as much as 5tabs daily, deworm regularly and finally, greet you doggy for me.

I feed my Samoyed rice and fresh fish which lasts for 3-4 days depending on the quantity I cook and she eats it very well, but sometimes I buy Jojo wet can food and mix with noodles or rice....
