What's the best type of dog food, supplements, etc. for the Havanese, especially getting a shiny, silky coat? Any info would be appreciated. I'm using Science Diet lamb and rice, and it occurred to me this may not be the best.
I did the Raw and Yoda was not happy with it .He was hungry all the time. I now feed Yoda solid Gold he loves it. I will switch Yoda to adult food at 1 year or when this bag is all gone since he will be a year old March 18 . I just bought it so it should last until then.I keep his food in a sealed container .
I dont feed science diet any more its not as good as the other foods that are out now days they use to be good but not no more. If you want a good quality food you want to get as natural as you can. When I was feeding Yoda the Raw he started loosing weight and he has always been a little under since I have had him. They say on Raw give him 3-4 I gave Yoda 6-8 at every feeding and he was so hungry so I switched Solid gold does have carrots in it ect and Once a week I give hime egg yolk he loves this food and he feels full . Since Yoda is 11 months I feed him 2 times a day morning and night.I hope this help a little Susan
Is solid gold a brand name? Where do you get it?
Same goes for wellness puppy....it's hard to find "different" dog foods in our area...we have the typical Iams, Science Diet, all the brands carried at the stores, pro-pack, etc.
Yes its a brand name I get mine at petco they have a few different ones. and Yoda is starting to gain some weight not much but a little.I do feed him the puppy formula right now next month he will get the adult food.
Ricky was on a pediatric formula that the breeder was feeding him, so had me buy a bag from her. I saw it contained an awful lot of cereal and by 3 mths., Ricky was always hungry so I stopped it. Got him 4 samples from diff. brands that the pet supply shop owner gave me. Ricky loved them all, the little piggy! lol I decided to get him Innova dry kibble for puppies. At almost 7 months, he is now getting 3/4 - 1 cup depending on how often I treat him during the day for training. More treats means less food at dinnertime. He eats morning and early evening.
Once in a while I also give him a can of "Wellness" food just for a change. Ricky will eat almost anything I give him! lol Loves to have a chunk of apple every time we eat one! REALLY loves that! I also give him bits of roast beef, chicken, as well as raw bones that I keep in the freezer. I pull one out (veal or beef bones from the grocery store/butcher) and he can gnaw on that thing for a good 1/2 hour or more. Every time Ricky hears the freezer drawer being pulled, he comes running! LOL

My dogs have the worst diet. They only like Little Cesar, but I only give them 1/2 of that and 1/2 of a better brand ike Nature's recipe Carved Lamb. I also mix in some Royal Canin dry and vitamin supplements. I also leave the Royal Canin out for them to nibble on. They seem to be doing just fine. Their poop is consistent, not runny, so I guess it's OK. Their weight and size is great, also. I had tried Kodi on a raw diet, but he just refused to eat.
