We had to cook chicken and rice for several months after our little Min Pin was bitten by a rattlesnake while we were on vacation in NC a couple of years ago. It was more of a spit than a real bite, but Grommit inhaled and swallowed the venom and it burned his esophagus and stomach. So we had a slurry from the vet that we had to give him and then feed him chicken and rice. He's just fine now, but it was touch and go for quite some time.

Poor, Grommit. Happy to hear he is fine. A rattlesnake, huh? I am so happy we do not have snakes here.

I told my dad after I bought him a dog (Australian Shepard) about 7 years ago. (turns out he love the dog more than me )
that to feed him rice with cooked ground beef at LEAST once a week. Its inexpensive and VERY good for the dog. He now mixes rice with a variety of meats..... livers..... etc.
AND since I have cats I wanted to find the BEST FOOD POSSIBLE for my 2 little buddies. I literay did a minumum of TEN hours in finding out the answer. 8) I have become a dog and cat food expert!! LOL!

Well the conclusion is.... the very BEST DOG & CAT FOOD IS: (drum roll) http://www.naturalbalanceinc.com/ Dick Van Pattens: Natural Balance

Who would have though Dick Van Patten has the best animal food??!!!
As a BONUS this is generally 10% LESS than Eukanuba (sp?) and others.

So, did I see results??!! YOU BET! My cats eye color changed to a deeper green and the fur became much softer and didnt shed as much.

And this will be more of a shocker..... if you want pet food that is EQUAL to Eukanuba but at about HALF the cost..... Wal-Marts own brand. I forgot the name..... I DONT think it actually says 'walmart brand' on the package. But the packaging is a silver foil bag with one solid color printing on it.

My dog swallowed a sewing needle when he was about one. I called the vet and then rushed him over. The vet took an xray and it showed the needle in his intestines. The vet said he might have to surgically remove the needle, but wanted to try something first. He put a whole bunch of cotton in a bowl and mixed it with water and canned dog food to make a cottony slurry. Then he had my dog eat it. The cotton surrounded the needle and out it came a few days later!! My dog's vet learned that trick from another vet who had a dog that had swallowed a fish hook.
