Congo
by: Anonymous

I just came across Congo. Its a raw food. I do New Zealand lamb and grass fed beef. Dogs love it and are actually better on it then the last raw food they were on.

I always do raw not sure if that's what you are looking for.

hard question
by: Ed A f rom NJ

I had done a lot of research on this only to find out there is no definitive answer. We all know we don't want by products (basically waste product after all the good meat is gone the rest is ground) or grain and especially corn when it comes to Pyrenees. I used to use the web site food adviser and got some good info. Then I found out they do no testing just what they find on the label and their authors have no real credentials. What I can tell you is I found for kibble I use "taste of the wild bison" I have used it for about 6 years my dogs are very healthy don't have any hot spots, no hair problems and I have great vet visits. I do not believe kibble is enough so I mix in 13 ounces of canned white meat chicken packed in water I get at the super market(I drain off the water) I use this because I don't like canned dog food and it is as cost effective. My pups are now 8 and 13 years old. So I think I will keep them on it. Good luck and I hope this helps.By the way there are some dry foods that are crazy expensive (I've seen bags for $96.00). So remember higher price is not always best. That food has more recalled the most.

I have a 15 month old male and since I have had him as a puppy he has only eaten Purina puppy chow and now just the regular Purina dog chow. He just went for his shots and check up at vet and weighed in at 150lbs with a great bill of health. I know I was so confused about what to feed him but I am having great luck now with Purina. Good luck to you and your Prynees!!

Feeding
by: Donna

Do your research on kibble. It's very processed 'food'. I've heard the baked is better.

Here are some great videos on kibble vs raw. You may find it tedious to watch the 3-part video but they are very informative and will give you more information to make an informed choice.

Feeding raw is pretty easy and very healthy. Less poop, clean teeth, fewer trips to the vet for allergies or other issues, great coats. 5% liver, 5%kidney, 80% muscle meat and 10% bone. That is what you aim for. Google raw diet for dogs in your area.

stop and think before going raw!
by: Ed A f rom NJ

I totally believe every person should do the best for there babies. When it comes to raw food diets it is a big no! Can I say for sure it will harm your dog? But I can say it can for sure. A few word that come to mind are bone chips and bacteria both of these are more then possible. There is good and bad in everything, correct vaccines are good but to many may not be. Everyday we make choices for our dogs and my thought is why take unnessesary e ta chances. I see no need to expose my dog to bacteria and bone fragments. Now I know someone is going to say wolfs have been eating raw food for centuries and of.course that is so. But many die from bacteria, blockages and even bone damage to there digestive tracks. Not only that they don't have as long a life span as do our pets. Why in the world would we take any unneeded chances with our babies (because it may be fashionable). Not me that is for sure.what I can tell you for sure is my girl already is past the life expectance of the breed and I prey she keeps right on going. My boy is in perfect health and I believe I have lots of years left with him. At his age they would be talking retirement if he were a working LSD. But as a service and theropy dog Beau is in his prime.and he loves all the attention! As far as I am concerned I will always err on the side of caution and I don't see raw food diets as safe.BACTIRIA AND BONE CHIP!
