    My boy ate DRY food on his own at 11am :o, and a heck of a serving to boots >:D >:D,  to my surprise he was having a hay day in the dry food bowl. He goes to doggie school here in two hours. Then he will get a nice yummy meat dish ;D for being sucha sweet boy. he pooped three times since 6am 😮 😮

    Where is all that poop coming from 😮 😮 😮 :o, he did two times on the balcony in the cat litter box and once outside, I didnt expect him to do it on the balcony ALL on his own with me not even knowing where he went becuse he had not to long before done it outside 😮 😮 :o….In the USA we will say he he full of shit ;D >:D >:D >:D

    he has these days where he will eat and then some where he wont, so from now on I will just let him be, he must know what he is doing ::) ::) ::) and the little stinker is at my foot now :-* :-*. I think fro now on I will try to let him sleep near us on his bed and block a part off where he can see and smell me, dont know if this is too early but he seems to know not to wee or poo in the house since last week :-\ :-\ or should I wait a bit more months? :-\  Even in the room I have him he has not been doing it during the night but holding til  morning :-\. But then again, this is this week, who knows what his mood will be next week…. >:D

    Actually it is not the company that is in trouble per se, but the suppliers of ingredients from China.  China are under a lot of scrutiny at the moment with dog food, human food and of course children’s toys.

    There are product recalls from very reputable firms such as M & S all the major supermarkets etc from time to time because ALL checking is purely a snapshot view.

    I am not a particular fan of Hills dog food, but it would be wrong to imply that they deliberately and/or knowingly sold impure food.

    I know, the oil I am using here is grown and pressed in germany. But if this is so toxic why it is one of the leading cold press oils on the market and nobody is dying from it?? Is Canola and Rape the same thing? According to the flowers they look the same :-\

    Is there scientific facts to back this up? Forget American brands, they are eating and selling unsuitable goods to consumers >:(

    it is used in fertilisers in China and been found in their cat food in Canada – been withdrawn  >:(

    The members of The Pet Food Association of Canada are committed to the production of wholesome and nutritious foods for your pet.  Our members, pet owners themselves, have strict production protocols that include thorough testing and monitoring of their ingredients and suppliers.  Pet owners may feel safe and confident in feeding all foods that are not part of the recall.  In light of the recent recalls of pet food products, we offer the following:

    The Federal Drug Administration in the United States (FDA) announced on March 30th, 2007, that melamine was found in samples of recalled pet food.  Melamine is used as a fertilizer in China, where the ingredients were imported from.  FDA has advised consumers to continue using pet foods that were not subject to the recall.
    Hills Pet Nutrition, Inc., has voluntarily recalled a single product, Prescription Diet m/d Feline Dry food as a precaution, because wheat gluten received from the same supplier as was received by Menu Foods has tested positive for melamine.  Prescription Diet m/d Feline Dry Food is sold exclusively at veterinary hospitals and Hills has notified veterinarians to remove the product from use.  More information is available at Hills’ website, http://www.HillsPet.com.
    Nestle Purina Petcare has made a voluntary recall of Mighty Dog pouch products and specific date codes of ALPO Prime Cuts canned dog food.  NEITHER Mighty Dog® nor ALPO Prime Cuts® are available in Canada and therefore the Canadian consumer is unaffected by this recall.
    Medi-cal®/Royal Canine has recalled Feline Dissolution Formula (canned) as a result of learning that wheat gluten from the contaminated shipment was used in one production lot (January 08 2009).  This product is sold in Canada exclusively through veterinarians and the company has advised veterinarians to remove all date codes of the product from use.  Information about this recall is available at http://www.Medi-cal.ca.
    The list of canned/pouched products that are the subject of the Menu Foods recall can be seen at http://www.MenuFoods.com/recall.
    Delmonte has recalled a number of pet treats as a precaution, after having taken delivery of wheat gluten from the same supplier as Menu Foods.  Only one variety, Beef Jerky Treats, was sold in Canada.  For more information, visit. http://www.delmonte.com.
    Natural Balance has announced a voluntary recall of two types of products, regardless of date code.   Venison & Brown Rice dog food products and Venison and Green Pea Dry Cat Food have been recalled.  More information is available at http://www.naturalbalanceinc.com.
    Complete information pertaining to US-initiated recalls is posted at http://www.fda.gov.  “Hot Topcis—Pet Food Recall”. 

    Scary stuff really

    Rape is the most toxic of all food-oil plants. Like soy, rape is a weed. Insects will not eat it; it is deadly poisonous! The oil from the rape seed is a hundred times more toxic than soy oil

    that not protein that recovery food – prob hills? or science play ah something?

    dump it
    rape seed oil is a big no no in our house – dont do modified oils only pure oils
    he wont need vit b if you feed as i said – blitz the veggies or buy a preservative free veggie juice – fibre he will get from the carbs you add – if he gets constipated up the oil and add some bran to the carb meals – that will depend on the type of bones you give him – he needs chicken wings or necks not too much meat about 1/3 bone 1/3 fat 1/3 meat ion them – you have given him marrow bone tonight – he will prob have the squits tomorrow – he too young for beef marrow – especially on an empty gut

    i said to you before that he needs fat in his meat – lean meat not good – dogs get instant energy from fats otherwise they have to convert food to glucose and that puts a strain on internal organs
    [/quote]

    Hi Good morning

    I have to go ask the butcher to make me meat with fat as all the meat I have ever seen here at least in my area is 99% fat free, even I dont like it at time when it comes to Salsbury steaks ;). So I will have to order more fatty meats.

    He does not get the runs from marrow bones just the opposite constipation >:D.

    He is a sweetheart today, thanks to you. He pee immediately at the same spot as yesterday and he was praised with loving and tidbit treat. He popped and the same :-* :-* :-* Exactly the same spot. HE DID not go int he night in his room. He actually is holding until morning ;D

    He ate his kibbles with some gravy on it, then his yogurt and a piece of apple he had stashed away in his crate that I didtn know about >:D, played a lot then started big big yawns and I put him to bed, soon as he wakes he is going back to the same peepee spot :-*  the LETS GO Bit works >:D. So that was his morning feeding. I suppse he wil be a bit hungry in an hour or maybe two.

    In Germany they call it Raps so Rape is Raps ok. But why dont you use it? This is Coldpressed vitaoil rich in Omega 3 fatty acids :-\ :-\ Its not the cheap one but the more intense old cold pressed :-\

    No hon, it is not Hills, that is crap. It is something the vet makes at his place, it looks like a fresh hamburger patty NO McDonalds LOL ;D

    bones in the morning not in the evening – meat and carbs in the afternoon and evenings – yoghurt before a meal not after it is actually a pre biotic – dont know what the protein powder is as you havnt said what it is called but i doubt he will need that if you follow the above – olive oil on his dinners – sea kelp 1/2 a tab should be the only sups he will need if you feed fresh veggie juice with his meats and carbs and feed sardines in oil once a week
    [/quote]

    Thanks my dear, I will do exactly that, I didnt kow about the yogurt having a set time, but will obey that at once starting from tomorrow. The protein thing is really a full meal, vet sells it its made at his practice. Has chicken, beef, liver,cheese,carrots,oats,barley and some other stuff in it. It looks like a hamburger patty and he gobbled it up in minutes with no pause >:D

    Kiz, what about Raps oil`I use Raps and olive not together but one time one the other time the other and today vet gae me Vit B to give him half a day :-\.

    Press to extract the vegie juice? A question, do dogs really need much fiber as some think they do seeing their tracts are not like ours or that of a cow? ???

    My dogs eat all their food at regular given times
    My dogs wee and poo when they are cue’d to
    My dogs do what I ask of them
    My dogs are house trained
    My dogs are healthy

    Why are they like this BECAUSE I LEARNT FROM THE PEOPLE ON THIS BOARD WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT  >:(

    Like I said to look displacement up  ::)  In a few months when you cant take it anymore because YOU DONT LISTEN at that time when you are back on this board trying to rehome him then I will help all I can at that time too

    Wonder if you can read or if you care at all about this dog because if you did you would stop being so aggresive and just get bloody well on with it.  You have been on this board ALL day and have learnt absolutely nothing.

    dear god woman  >:( did you not read anything I wrote yesterday – stop bloody faffing about with his food – have three / four set meal times STICK TO IT give him his food somewhere quiet and leave him to get on with – give him a bit of peace and quiet.

    Stop chopping and changing his food so darn much – you have spoilt him completely he sounds like hes being treated more like a child than a dog  🙁 Im not having a go but you have no idea how fustrating this is – I know its hard when a dog wont eat believe me I have been there- with far worse problems than your having because not only would she not eat whatever she did eat went straight through her – she lost half her boy weight within about a week – now THAT is worrying -the only thing that got her eating once her tummy troubles were sorted was being consistent with regular mealtimes and no faffing about and giving in – your pup is gaining weight and he needs to get used to the idea that he eats what hes given – if a child refused their vegetables and mummy said oh ok have some chocolate is the child ever likely to eat vegetables again?

    To be honest I wonder if your ever going to take on board whats being said – your too busy with the smart remarks to people – I only keep trying because that pup deserves it  >:(
    [/quote]

    Of course I am taking the advice and doing it immediately, I sais I USED TO DO that I dont for the past four or more days. I have been trying to break him out of it wiht tuff love, eat or starve. But since the vet told me coók this or that for him for a two week period I did as the vet recommended. he did eat at first but then stopped.

    He had a decent evening and is sleeping like a log now, and wil sleep thru the night with a fat full belly. You all say things to me without reading the entire thread to see that I have been doing those same things you claim I am not doing. Read, read read and you will see. Good grief ::)

    When he refuses the food are you picking it up after 10 minutes then offering it to him again at the next meal or are you offering him a different meal?

    I’m sure it’s back there somewhere I just really cant be bothered to go through the entire thread  ::)
    [/quote]

    Always different foods what he gets per that period of feeding, I have tried on numerous occasions to put the same thing twice, he does not ever touch it, as a matter of fact he dashes in to his crate and peeps out when I do this :-\. I leave it for 15 mins

    Right now ihe is like pig in heaven with this bone

    Whenever he eats a meal it is a big party in the house ::)
    [/quote]

    Animals are very good at picking up emotions, he knows you are stressing out about mealtimes, he can see/feel the tension, thats why I said put the food down and walk away or you will carry on with this battle till kingdom come
    [/quote]

    Well I broke down and fed him some nutrical he was looking really not himself, he sucked up two nice lumps and now is eating a beefbone wiht marrow RAW frozen, this is the problem he wins each time because I hate to see him starve, i will offer him some raw hamburger at 8:30.

    maybe his gums hurt and he may be teething as his moulders are really coming out more now, so it could be his gums hurt, thing is he will not eat soft food either. So if the bone and marrow makes him happy, then so be it for today. Maybe I will have some luck. But I trully think he will never eat commercial dog food, he has rejected ever possible brand and kind.

    I got him at 750gm and now he is 1358gm so he aint getting smaller.

    I have seen cats bigger,  ::)
    he is young, still on 3 meals a day,and he is gaining weight  make a diary of everything he eats, meals or treats like apples training treats, he may be eating more than you realize don’t forget he only has a small stomach,
    [/quote]

    LOL at cat ;D he is tiny, I had said so before. I do jot everything down from the time I open my eyes, and again I weigh the food out and then when it is removed weigh it again and jot what he might have eaten, or drank as the bowl for water is measured also, and when I check to see how much he drank I change and put fresh water and measure it again. He has a small stomach and he is fed small portions he just is giving me trouble like 5 days a week then two days he may eat two times

    Whenever he eats a meal it is a big party in the house ::)
