  • Pet diets

    Do you use expensive pets food? I think chronic health conditions in pets are on the rise for the same reason as for us. Dog foods have a huge amount of salt, colorings and other rubbish and pets don't get the exercise they should. But I look at the veterinary diets and they are just so expensive. What diets do you think combine good ingredients with a reasonable price?

    YesI agree i mean it goes the same it does for people. When you consume foods that are preserved with color, dye ,salts and sugars, its bound to not be healthy for you.

      Pet diets

      I have a newly diagnosed diabetic dog and the first thing the vet did was put him on Hill's W/D. I could have cried when I read the ingredients...and cannot imagine that this diet could support a chronically ill dog. I plan to continue this until she is able to establish the proper insulin dosage but plan to search for a better diet for maintenance. Any ideas, suggestions?

        Pet Alive Natural Supplements

        I have a cat who is borderline diabetes. He's 7 years old and weighs in at 21 lbs. I have tried everything to make him loose wieght, even prescription food, and nothing is working. I just recently tried the Native Remedies Petalive. My cat loves this stuff. I haven't noticed a weight change but this supplement has given him so much energy. He's playing along with the other cats as well as the toys we keep for them. Such a change from the sleeping all day. I know cats sleep alot, but my other two cats run circles around him on a daily basis. The great thing is, it can also be given to dogs too. Has anyone ever tried this supplement before? This could be an alternative to prescription foods maybe.

          Is it possible to control pet diabetes with diet? Are there diabetics pet foods out there? I know there are low fat foods.

            In many cases, cat diabetes can be controlled fine with diet. I am not sure of any brands off the top of my head, but look for senior and weight control formulas. The vet is a good place to ask of course, but I am sure that some grocery stores offer "diet" cat food that may be just as good. Some people even make their own "healthy and fresh" food for their pets, using recipes off of the internet.

            With all of the pet food scares and recalls, I think more people may do this now.

              When the pet food recalls started we about freaked out. Fortunately our cats food wasn't on the list. Also happily our kitties do not have diabetes
