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.

I'm so glad Wynnie is enjoying her new cuisine! 

Comment by Wynnie & Jim on November 3, 2017 at 3:55pm
I just switched Wynnie to Wild Calling medley (lamb, salmon and duck) grain free -dry. I also mix in some wet Rainbow River (Salmon). She has turned from a picky eater to an enthusiastic eater. Thank you Karen for your food recommendations.

Thanks!

Comment by Karen & Jackdoodle on September 19, 2017 at 4:44pm

You remembered right, Deb. The Six Fish treats contain only 3 kcal each, the Original and Duck treats have 4 kcal each, and all of the other varieties have 5 kcal each. 

Comment by Deborah Brown on September 19, 2017 at 4:29pm

I might be imagining this but I seem to remember someone saying that Orijen freeze dried treats had only 3 or 5 calories.  I think it was because they are puffed up with air.  Does this sound familiar?  I don't want to pass this along if its not correct.

Comment by Mark Wilson on September 18, 2017 at 7:11pm

Understood.

Comment by Karen & Jackdoodle on September 18, 2017 at 5:16pm

And perhaps Helga could respond to your question in the raw feeding group as well. :)

Comment by Karen & Jackdoodle on September 18, 2017 at 5:14pm

I appreciate that Mike. While we do include commercial raw foods on our recommended list, we are not fans of prey model raw feeding in this group, nor the often cult-like mentally that accompanies it. 

Comment by Mark Wilson on September 18, 2017 at 5:11pm

Sorry, Karen.  A bit lazy of me.

Thanks, Helga!  I've been raw feeding for a few months now, and after much trepidation at the outset, I'm starting to feel comfortable with the process.  Or at least I did until I discovered a raw feeding group on Facebook.  Seems I still have much to learn, or perhaps consider in terms of depth.  Do you follow a strict Prey Model regimen?  I'll save all future conversation for the rawfood group.

Comment by Helga, Nimbus, Sierra, Clooney on September 18, 2017 at 9:34am
Hi Mark,
I feed raw. If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer.
