Over seven years old, all indoor dogs, Purina Senior blend 2 cups per day plus 1/2 can Old Roy chunks and gravy. Outdoor dogs get Big Red dry 4 to six cups each per day depending on the weather.
Everybody gets Milk Bone biscuits about four per day. Pups get Purina Puppy Chow amount based on their weight for first two years. Nutrition analysis is pretty much the same with much higher priced foods.(Ians, Science Diet, etc.) Since we feed 75 pounds of dry and a case of canned per week; price matters.
I will probably get ripped, but I feed Iams. Axl has been on it since he was a kid, so I stay with it. He gets an occasional treat, but probably not more than 2 or 3 a year. Man I am a mean bastard. No human food, other than bones.
My much too spoiled Chessie mutt gets 2 1/2 cups of Iams Active Mature(purple bag) plus 2 or 3 milk bones. She's been on Iams since 6 weeks old.
She gets a raw egg once a week and the Sunday bacon grease. She stays around 70-75 lbs.
A bit off the topic but she'll be 9 in April and other than needing a running start to make a lowered tailgate, is in great shape and doesn't show her age. I got her use to me invading her space since she was a pup. I clean her ears and scrape her teeth once a month(which shee hates but allows). She sees the vet at least once a year. Barring some disease or accident I'm planning on about 5 more years. God, I just realized I only have 5 more years. Some of you guys have wrote about losing your dog's to age or sickness and everytime you do I have to walk away for a while. My dog is like a child to me.
i feed one dog iams an chicken an rice the other dog gets pedgree i mix one can plus two cups dry they get puppy bones morning an nite on sundays they get eggs an toast they dont get any thing with grease to many problems
Whatever they can steal lol,have tried all the flash ones,Pro plan Iams,Eukanuba,science diet and the like, have settled on Pedigree Pal its got the same makeup as the others, is a premium food and costs about 1/4 of the price,
We just recently switched to Eukanuba from Purina One. We've noticed the small black one doesn't have as much problem with dry skin now. Both dogs get the same grub and share the same bowls. We've went with an automatic feeder, as it they can get to the food anytime they want. When raising dogs Pops and I discovered that the dogs were less apt to put on weight this way.
Dogs will gorge themselves on whatever is available and literally "eat themselves to death!" For the dry skin add animal or vegetable fats about once a week. Raw eggs "occasionally" will brighten up their coat.
IAMS green bag, as much as they want, plus I split a 22 oz can of Alpo chunks between em every night mixed with some oatmeal ( makes picking up the stools easy ) and table scraps ( meat or anything cooked in butter )
They get two or three milk bones a day.
