Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: What's worse for dogs: salt or sugar?   Wed May 28, 2014 12:35 am

I know I've read that both are bad. Are they equally bad? Is one worse than the other? If so, which one? I'm going to add beef broth to the dog's diet, and I need to figure out which one is the best of the three. Here's the breakdown:

1. Natural Beef Broth: 570mg sodium (24% daily value) from sea salt, no sugar added.

2. Organic Beef Broth: 570mg sodium (24% daily value) from sea salt, plus cane sugar added (1g per serving, 4 servings per container).

3. Organic Low Sodium Beef Broth: 140mg sodium (6%) from sea salt, plus cane sugar added (1g per serving, 4 servings per container).

Which one would be the best for a dog? I prefer organic, but both have salt and sugar. So weird. Thanks in advance!

I'd probably go for the organic low sodium if I were going to do it regularly. Are any of your dogs diabetic? Any other health issues? How much are you planning on giving each dog daily?

Thanks. No health issues whatsoever. And I just plan to pour some over their food each day.

I go with the low sodium variety but what about making it too? Or at least some of the time making it.

We're a family of vegetarian/vegans, and the only meat and animal products in the house is for the dogs and cats. Ha! Otherwise we would probably make it from scratch.
