Chapter 4 A Feast Fit For a King
vShould I feed King dry food or canned? How about table scraps? What about the moist packs and the gravy foods?
vI get confused standing at the dog food aisle. There are so many brands and varieties. Which should I choose?
vShould I add supplements to the food? Should I add vitamin C to prevent bone disease? I’ve heard that a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar added to the food keeps away the fleas.
vI can hardly stand the smell of some dog foods. Any suggestions?
vWhat about generic food?
vI don’t believe commercial dog food is good enough for my dog. I’d like to feed Rebel a home-cooked, balanced meal. Where can I find proportions and recipes?
vPrincess only likes white meat of chicken, boiled, if you please. When I try feeding her anything else, she won’t eat. I’m afraid she’ll starve.
vWhen I brought my puppy home, the breeder said she was feeding him Brand X puppy food. My other dog eats Brand Y. Do I have to buy two kinds, or can I switch one of them?
vWhen should I feed? Does it hurt Gus if I’m a little late or early feeding him? How about free choice versus regular meals?
vSchatzie picks at his food all day. It drives me nuts! At 2:00 A.M., I still hear crunching.
vHow often do I feed? When should I cut my puppy back from four meals a day to three, and three to two? Should I feed one or two meals to an adult? . . .
