WHAT’S THIS GREEN GOO?
Last week I broke down and bought my pups dehydrated dog food. I bought the Verve beef because Sissy is watching her figure and it had less fat than the others. It comes in a 10 pound bag and is pretty pricy, but once you add the water and re-hydrate it, it makes about 43 pounds of food. This comes out to less than what I pay for my dogs premium food.
Anyway, I mixed up a batch for little ones the next morning. Jonesy and Sissy snarfed it up. Yum Yum. Tinky wouldn’t eat it for two days. Even now, she doesn’t eat it all, so the jury is still out on that one.
It’s been a week now, and Jonesy is the only one that will gobble it down. Sissy has now turned her nose up to it. Sissy…the one that licks the paint off the bowl got picky! Go figure! Now I have to put cooked chicken in their bowl before Tinky and Sissy will eat.
Since this stuff contains Alfalfa (yes, I said Alfalfa) my house smells like a barn, the dogs smell like cows, and when they poop, the methane count goes up and the flies come a buzzin’. Try picking that stuff up when you walk your dogs. It’s not pretty.
The Green Color Is The Alfalfa
The food contains organic rye, organic barley, dehydrated beef, organic flaxseed, organic oats, carrots, alfalfa, potatoes, eggs, red and green bell peppers, spinach, apples, cranberries, chicory, parsley, peppermint, and rosemary.
I think I’ll look into cooking my own dog food. Does anyone out there have a good recipe that is nutritious for your dog?
