Hi People! You may remember a couple months back, I asked for some help in the what do you get fed category. Well, we all took into consideration all of your suggestions, which were very helpful thank you, and made some changes.
After narrowing it down to either fully home cooked meals (which is where my vote was cast) and Honest Kitchen Preference with your own choice of protein added, the latter was implemented.
Now, I asked Mom not to go into all the minutia about high quality ingredients, and how the food is produced in human grade kitchens, not dog food factories, and cut straight to the chase. These new meals are freakin' terrific!
It starts with the base mix.
It comes dehydrated and needs to be re-hydrated by adding water. That part nearly kills us! But, while that is happening, Mom prepares all of our add ins. From the left in the picture above...
- pro enzymes, for healthy bellies
- Dasaquin for me and Britte's joints
- Four Marvels for Brigitte"s pee (Chinese herb)
- Metacam 1/2 dose for Brigitte for her hand, and me right now for my orb and back
- Tryxin - more stuff for the joints
- Omega Fish Oils (for the breath!)
OK, now for the most excellent part of all!
Not just any meat either. It's buffalo, made into little mini meatloaves.
We like to call them Britteloaves.
They have non fat cottage cheese, and eggs too!!!!!
Mom made a weeks worth last night. Boy did the house smell heavenly.
*note from mom, they totally do not smell heavenly. They make me want to gag and vomit all over the kitchen every time I make them. But, anything for the little tyrant and her crew*
So at what adds up to be a few bucks a meal per pug, I saw Dad ordering this for Mom's stocking last night...
*additional note from mom I really didn't do the math on the per serving cost, but even if it is a little more than their old food, it is totally worth it*
So, as mentioned in prior posts, we are really digging the new grub. We're soft, energetic, not any butt juice or wheelchair races.
(see wheel chair races)
And our poop is fantastic! So great in fact, that Brigitte is going to all new lengths to run it through again! Butt, we'll save that for another post (or not)
Sorry Grammy for the poop reference. I figured since it made it into the Christmas Newsletter this year, poop was off the restricted list ;-)
