    It’s amazing how stupid people have become. They forget that their pet cats and dogs are carnivores that eat other animals.

    Your pet dog or cat will be far more healthier and live longer on a diet of feeder rats and mice from the local pet shop, and or wild deer and rabbit caught in the woods than the garbage that mostly appeals to humans at a grocery store.

    In the Equal Money System pets won’t be victims of human greed and will no longer have to consume by products of our own ‘food waste’ – Fascinating how even the ‘organic trend’ can only benefit a few pets whose ‘owners’ can afford such a lifestyle. All animals will be fed with equal quality food that you and I will eat as well. equalmoney. org – Join the effort from LIFE to support LIFE

    Dogs tend to like snaps, spinach, kale, collards, etc & you can buy them chopped but frozen & simply microwave them warm, in order to feed them to the dog or you can puree fresh stuff. Adding a bit of Old Bay Seasoning to the veggies can also make them tastier for the dog. Dogs also like plain cooked sweet potatoes (a flavorful, low glycemic carbohydrate) & squash. You DO need to add a meat protein (not mentioned) and a source of adequate calcium.

    You can add a few blueberries but keep in mind that feral dogs & wolves don’t tend to eat fruit other than what is found in the stomachs of their prey. You don’t want to tax their pancreas with too much sugar, since the normal carnivore diet of meat & bone requires very little insulin for digestion. Brown or wild rice is much better for the dog, than white rice (more fiber, more nutrition, less sugar).

    No, its not okay. Dogs are omnivores, but they need the vast majority of their diet to be protein. If you insist on making your own dog food instead of just waiting for your dog to get hungry enough to not refuse normal food (like most reasonable owners!), you should start researching home-made or raw diets. Your dog CAN NOT subsist on the diet you’re talking about.
