Here’s A Tip For You

I’m really anti wet canned dog food, dogs don’t need it because it’s basically fast food for your pooch. Wet food is full of processed nastiness, it’s like you eating McDonald each night, it’s not good for you. What we’re doing to our own health with processed foods, we’re also doing to our dogs. Did you know that dogs and humans share over 70% of the same genetic makeup and dogs need the same nutrients as humans and this is why human meat is a much better, cheaper and healthier option to feed your dog.

Another reason to feed your dog human meat and not wet food is because all cheap brands contain a lot of corn, which is a filler. Corn is cheap, that’s why manufacturers like using them, and it makes your dog feel full. However, dogs can’t digest corn and this can cause your dog to have bad breath that stems from its stomach. Usually dog’s breath shouldn’t smell, their breath should smell sweet and if this isn’t the case, there could be something not quiet right with their diet or health.

So what do I do? Since Toby was a baby he has had the same dinner, kibble mixed with a tablespoon of mince meat. I buy a packet of human premium quality beef meat, I then divide the mince up into smaller portions, wrap them up in tin foil and throw them all into the freezer.

Each evening, I grab a small parcel out the freezer, defrost it in the microwave and then mix it through his kibble. Dogs don’t need a lot of meat, all they want is the flavour and if you mix the mince and kibble together, the majority of the food will taste like delicious meat.

By doing this, I get about 30 – 35 meat meals for Toby for around $10, it’s natural, not processed, you avoid giving your dog McDonald every night and you don’t have to have those horrible open canned tins sitting in your fridge. Win, win.
