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.

Hi everyone -

We feed our male sib TOTW prairie dry food and mix it with wet food twice a day (he loves the wet stuff - but economically speaking its just too expensive to feed only the wet stuff!). We have had great luck with the canned Ziggnature turkey recipe and it sits very well with our Sib - the problem is that its about $35-$40 per 12 pack of cans. We have tried the TOTW canned stuff, however for the price the meat/broth ratio does not seem worth it - same goes for the more budget oriented Costco brand canned turkey (which makes our Sib's fart smell just awful Razz).

We were thinking about trying some of Fromm's Pate grain free recopies - the turkey & pumpkin Pate looks like a good candidate. However, I wanted to reach out to see if anyone else has any recommendations before I purchase a 12 pack of cans.

Thanks!

Merrick puts out a pretty good canned product though I don't know the cost on it. I also like the stuff by Nature's Variety. I do partial raw and if you can source raw meat at a decent price where you are it has the ability to be much cheaper than canned but that really depends on your area's meat prices and if you have the time to put it all together.

+1 recommendation for raw food.

All the same texture and taste of wet but with a lot less unknown/filler ingredients that come with commercial canned/dry dog food. My husky is an active 50lb 1.5yr old and I feed almost 1.5X the recommended amount for raw food. To give you an idea, with supplements, treats and raw bones (for recreation/teeth cleaning), along his his regular meal patties, it comes to approx $120 CDN a month that I spend on him for food. Not much more than the $100 CDN I was spending on a bag of Orijen kibble/month alone, and it didn't come with any health benefits.

Google away the benefits of feeding raw, but to name a few: Less shedding, shiney/soft coat, more energy, firm/small poops, clean teeth, great breath, stronger immune system, healthy human grade ingredients that you can easily recognize consisting of meats/vegetables and nothing else. If you buy local, you also have the added benefit of supporting a local business.

Good luck! Keep us informed on what you settle with.
