what I feed my babies beware of giving scraps!!!

Post by sharreem on Wed Sep 24, 2008 10:43 pm

I fed my pups eagle pack for large and giant breeds http://www.eaglepack.com/Pages/SP_LGPuppy.html have a read about what it says.

Angel our bitch now gets either eagle pack, science diet or Eukanuba... she gets bored with one flavour so thats why i change.
I have learnt the hard way about scraps being given to dogs. Ebony our old girl nearly died last year from pancrienitis ..... fat poisoning... She always had scraps all her life from the kids left overs. One day she had some sausause scraps in her bowl....well to cut a long story short after $1800 vet bill she no longer has scraps.. she is only aloud chicken breasts and boiled rice. her pancriese can no longer disolve fat. PLEASE be careful feeding dogs older than 7 years old any scraps. My dog lived but two dogs I know of died from the same thing she had...their owners were not so lucky!!! Evil or Very Mad

i dont aggree with cooked bones!!
i got a rotty girl from the pound a few yrs ago and somebody threw chock or steak bones over our fence!!
she had to be pts because she wasnt having a good time!
she only suffered for a few hours but the symptoms she had was terrifing
she was throthing from the mouth could hardle breath,started to bleed etc
i was all over the place and took her to the vets they said she couldnt be saved so they put her to sleep and later the autopsy showed a large handle of cooked bones!!!!

i cant beleive someone would risk another living this life!!
but it has showed me that YES you shouldnt give cooked bones and i never will and i will try and tell people the same thing Sad

sorry to hear that you have had trouble sharreem that is an awful thing to happen. I never feed cooked bones always raw and I have found eagle pack to be the best dog food do far mine is on the holistic select duck and oatmeal range and he is doing really well on it. Thanks for the warning.

Oh, I know so many people who feed cooked bones!! i try to tell them not to! I hate to sound like a nag, they just don't understand how it changes the composition after being cooked..

No they dont but they will learn the hard way sometime and the dog could pay the ultimate price his or her life.

its not a pretty thing to see a dog through what they go through when a cooked bone gets logged or splinters their insides
expectaly if they just had puppys the day before!!
pebbles the girl i got from the pound started with realy heavy panting,really bad throth from her mouth,the most horrible horrible sounds,
i cant remember the rest but once she started throthing it was straight to the vet!!
poor girl it was the worst thing i have ever seen Sad

Too bad, they label certain breeds.
had a lovely Rottie in the other day,, all 140 lbs. of her... So silly, she had two knee replacements and when she sat, her back legs would go straight out instead of bend...
She was sweeter than some poms I know.. Laughing

Again this is part of the breed specific legislation you can blame dog haters for this again its all about breed NOT deed. It sucks but its part of life. Most rottweilers are gentle loving dogs my sister had them for near on 20 years. I love the breed and as you know we have one here a young male who is wonderful with us and visitors. Im glad that people are aware of this and give these wonderful dogs a go.

awww poor thing!!!
the good thing is that i ahve passed on the "no cooked bones rule to all of my family members
mum thought it was ok because she did it for years,but i begged not to and now she doesnt give any animal a cooked bone!!
that is my number one rule for my animals
"no cooked bones at all"
seems harmless but it can kill
