WELCOME TO THE FOOD GROUP - This group was started in an attempt to present well-researched and FACT-based information on the amazingly complicated and confusing issue of feeding our dogs. There are also many issues we would like to explore. We thought it would be helpful to put all of these questions, information, and feedback into one place here on DK where everyone can find it, contribute to it, ask questions, and learn together.
WE ASK THAT YOU NOT POST ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PRODUCTS FOR WHICH YOU RECEIVE ANY TYPE OF COMMISSION OR COMPENSATION. THANK YOU.
IMPORTANT-PLEASE READ "FOOD GROUP GUIDELINES" BEFORE STARTING A NEW DISCUSSION.

Hi Shelby, I responded to your discussion here; it's fine to just go ahead and feed the new food exclusively. 

Comment by Shelby Kolling on August 2, 2017 at 10:48am

Hi! We are transitioning our 12 week old F1 goldendoodle to a new food and trying to do it gradually, however, he will only eat the new food out of his bowl and wont touch the old food.  Is it okay to just feed him the new food (since he is only eating it anyways)?

Comment by Karen & Jackdoodle on June 28, 2017 at 8:21pm

And that's better for him, too.

Comment by Haley&Yeti on June 28, 2017 at 7:35pm
Thanks Karen! I figured I could always use yogurt! One of his other favorite things :)
Comment by Karen & Jackdoodle on June 28, 2017 at 7:34pm

There's conflicting info about whether or not coconut milk is of any value to dogs, and with Yeti's history of digestive problems, I'd take a pass. Just stick with the plain watermelon if he likes it, and you also will save unnecessary calories. 

Comment by Haley&Yeti on June 28, 2017 at 7:17pm
Does anyone know if coconut milk is okay for dogs? Found a recipe for watermelon dog treats that I want to try to make for Yeti! He is crazzzzy for watermelon!

The recipe calls for 1/4 of a small watermelon (seedless)
1 can of coconut milk
(Blend until smooth and poor into ice cube trays. Freeze for 4-6 hours or until completely frozen)

LOL, okay well that explains it and it's good to know it isn't ingredient related. Thanks! 

Comment by Karen & Jackdoodle on June 8, 2017 at 4:31pm

Okay, now I know why. Only Allyson can add anything or edit the list because she started the discussion. I'll have to redo the whole thing when I have a chance.

Comment by Karen & Jackdoodle on June 8, 2017 at 4:29pm

Probably because I forgot to add them, lol. Doing it now. :)

Comment by Ricki and Tara (doodle) on June 8, 2017 at 4:24pm

I found several discussions about Earth Animal No Hide Stix but no discussion about their quality. They are "made" in the USA but I know that can be misleading. Just wondering why they didn't make it to the recommended list?
