I might move to homemade… Before Simon’s osteo,, Ive been feeding Instinct kibble.. RAW boost  kibble plus freeze dried  raw.. grain free . 36% protein .. It cost $68.00 for 20 #,, … Might I be better off with the more upscale brands like Orijen…etc?

I’m thinking I might also, instead of homemade,,  go to add HK over the top.. of the  correct  kibble.

For now,, since Simon is finnicky, I’ve been feeding about 1 lb cooked lean turkey mixed with the kibble… I’ve only been feeding once a day,, since simon often didn’t eat kibble w/o anything added.. will probably move to 2x a day once I get my herbs,, supplements in place..

I kmow you  asked about Honest Kitchen in another post.  When my Happy Hannah  was on her journey.  I did a couple of different foods.  Sometimes   I did some homecooking, sometimes Honest Kitchen, sometimes I  did Orijen Six Fish, sometimes EVO (one of the original  grain free ).  Those were the main ones.  That was five years ago.

She was a big gal, so as you already know with larger dogs, it’s very expensive!

I now have approximately 325-330 lbs of dog to feed (4). I still try and do Honest Kitchen when I can.   I basically rotate my dry food between Orijen Six Fish, Fromm, and Merrick.  I also,buy a whole chicken  once a week and divide  among the four.   Needless to say, it doesn’t  go very far. I also try and incorporate  Fresh Pet Grain Free some. They love all of these foods.. Expensive taste to say the least!!

Simon is a very well cared for pup!


Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Pet food isn’t the easy decision it used to be, is it? We have so many choices and a lot of great foods to choose from. And everyone’s opinion about what a “good” brand or diet is, will be different.

My best advice to you is, do what works for your pack, for your budget, and what Simon enjoys eating. If he doesn’t have a sensitive belly and you have the luxury of rotating different foods, that’s a good way to test things out and see what works for him. Start slowly and gradually and work from there.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
