WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD, QUALITY MATTERS!

 
WANT TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT WHAT YOU FEED YOUR BELOVED FURRY FAMILY MEMBER(S)?

QUALITY, SAFE FOODS FOR OUR BELOVED PETS!  


I feed FROMM GOLD HOLISTIC PUPPY (kibble) and FROMM GOLD HOLISTIC ADULT (kibble) as a constant nutritional foundation and I rotate a number of other carefully selected, quality foods mixed in, in addition to occasional home cooked meals. CHICKEN BASED FORMULAS are at the heart of my dogs' diet, with the addition of a small amount of other meat proteins. This variety added into their consistent kibble foundation serves to keeps digestion healthy and allows the dogs to enjoy balanced nutrition while helping to eliminate the development of food allergies.  I have researched both dry and canned dog food brands very carefully and came up with an "approved" list of foods that contain premium quality ingredients, no corn, no wheat, no soy, no by-products, no questionable overseas sources, high success rate, small size kibble, made in the USA, and never involved in a recall. 


NOTE: I FEED ANY GRAIN FREE FOODS ONLY AS A SUPPLEMENTAL SOURCE OF NUTRITION AND NEVER AS A MAIN DIET.  GRAIN FREE FOODS HAVE BEEN LINKED TO HEART DISEASE IN DOGS! (CLICK HERE to read more at FDA website about the link between Grain Free foods and heart disease!)



You can feel good about feeding your dog(s) any of the foods from the following lists. 


ALS denotes a food designated as "All Life Stages." Due to their small size, Chihuahua puppies should be fed a puppy/growth formulation, as they need all the calories and nutrition they can get per bite, especially younger/smaller Chihuahua puppies. I have found that some All Life Stages formulas (such as the Victor Chicken & Rice Pate I wean puppies on) contain very similar nutritional and caloric content to puppy formulas and I include such ALS formulas in my puppies' diet, in addition to their puppy formula foundational food.

MY FAVORITE PLACES TO BUY FOOD, TREATS, TOYS, SUPPLIES

I buy almost all of my dogs' foods, treats, toys, etc. ONLINE at one of the sites below. Some of these food/treat brands can be extremely difficult to find locally (even if you live in the city and are not out in the middle of the country like we are!), but they can all be found on one or more of the sites below, and free shipping is available!
