Pets: What Do You Feed Them?

Title says it all. What do you feed your pets? From main grub to special snacks! Im very interested to learn what your pets like...... and hate. Also, do you keep food out all the time? OR do you feed them at certain hours.

Dove eats Purina One. That is what she was fed by the breeder we adopted her from. It is pinkie finger nail size (so I don't have to chew it up first and feed her like a mama bird does...yuk..LOL)

She loves raw veg. espcially carrots..they act like dental floss to dogs.
No food from the table.

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

We feed our dog beneful (by purina I think?). He also loves fresh carrotts as a treat, and dog biscuits. On rare occasions he gets a marrow bone, but we try to keep that to once every two months because labs gain weight fast with marrow bones. We no longer give our dog table scraps.

What ever she wants... when ever she wants it. Luckily she is very picky so mostly it's dry and canned cat food.

Seijo gets wolf king dog food by solidgold. It's very good for her. She gets the occasional frozen cow bone to keep her occupied. Aidan feeds her a lot of his food, so she gets a lot of "people" food. She eats twice a day, if you leave food out for them all day they're more likely to be overweight.

She likes to chase bees in the summer and eats them.

Angel gets 1 c of Purina Pro Chow in the morning and at night- during the day she'll get -well 2 T scrambled egg beaters if I'm having breakfast or 1/4c vanilla yogurt. She loves her fruits and veggies with the exception of mushrooms unless cooked and onions. She's not a big fan of fresh herbs either. Her favorite veggie is red pepper and her favorite fruit is banana. We learned from the vet that grapes- any variety are dangerous for labs so although she's had them in the past and enjoyed them-it's now off her snack list.Angel also gets a denta bone once a week and puppy milk bones when we have people in the house who ant to give her a treat.When Kiersten is home she usually "shares" a bag of popcorn with her.Yeah I know Angel is spoiled but, not half as spoiled as I am by her!!!

we used to give our lab (female) 2 cups of purina 1 (for large dogs) dry mixed with 1/2 can of alpo beef and rice (wet) for taste.

the purina was $18 for a 20lb bag, at Giant, and then one day i saw that Costco had the Kirkland brand at $20 for a 50lb bag. we gradualy made the switch (mixing the 2 at first so as not to upset the pups tummy) and she LOVES the new stuff.

it also doesnt hurt the wallet that we now get 3X as much dog food for $3 more!!
I hated going to weddings. All the grandmas would poke me saying "You're next". They stopped that when I started doing it to them at funerals.

Let's see:

The dogs get Nutro Lamb & Rice dry dog food mixed with a little warm water & a few spoonfuls of Alpo canned once a day.

Cats get free-choice Iams dry food & a once-a-day half-a-can each of canned food - any brand.

Cockatoo gets a dish full of large-bird pelleted food (Zoo Preem or Roudybush), a dish full of parrot seed mix, & all sorts of snacks throughout the day - cheese, crackers, raw & cooked vegetables, fruit, etc.

Fish get thawed frozen fish food in the a.m.; dry flake food in the p.m.

Horses get free-choice timothy/grass-mix hay, along with several flakes of pure alfalfa twice a day. They also get small twice daily feedings of Purina Complete Advantage feed mixed with a trace mineral supplement.

Kind of hard to believe I have time to do anything else but feed, doesn't it? LOL!!!!!
