    Re: Pet Food

    Years ago when I had a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, I used to get up every morning and open a tin of Pedigree Chum. For a long time I used to think "Actually, that smells quite nice". One morning, before I knew what I was doing, I actually tasted a bit.
    Oh my life!! - all I can say is DON'T. It was disgusting and gritty. One out of one owners said their Krammy didn't prefer it.
    I was lucky really that there were no long-lasting side effects......Woof

    I have to admit some catfood smells pretty good too. It might make a nice pate with enough garlic in it. Meow

    My son is a chip off the old block and years ago when I used to push him around the supermarket in that little seat on the trolley, he'd wait until we were within earshot of other shoppers and loudly say "Oh Dad, Do we have to have dog-food again for dinner, can't we have something else?"
    Used to raise a few eyebrows.
    Shoulda given him an Oscar, and myself too for the best fake-reprimand in a supporting role

    Me to. I was just mentioning it so people were aware of it in general and not as specific advice for a specific animal. I'm sure that refined processed food for animals is general as bad for them as the sugary, salty, overrefined foods which are so heavily promoted for our children. If we want our pets to be hyperactive, unsociable and unpredicably violent as well as obese then feeding them the animal equivalent of kids cereals will lead in this direction.

    The less processed a food is the more likely it is to be the equivalent of what nature intended for those we love, whether child or pet.

    Thanks to Snooze control for pointing out my error in my previous post in this thread. I've altered it so it now appears snoozecontrol post is irrelevant but I really didn't want my original link to get any more publicity, so apologies to Snooze.

    No worries, Ted. Most of my posts are irrelevant.

    Then maybe it would have been better to place it IN the BARF thread or
    to put a caveat in, so people reading that post won't think you ARE in
    fact suggesting it for a 16 year old dog...

    Yep I stand corrected. I should have checked to see if barf had been mentioned onsite before I posted. Although I'm not sure that the change to eating healthily at any point in live wouldn't lead to improvements. I just know that if I mentioned it to my parents in when they were alive they simply weren't interested in bothering with healthier eating options so I suspect a 16yr old dog also wouldn't want to learn new tricks either.
