FEEDING YOUR PUPPY
What we fed your puppy: PMI HIGH PROTIEN KIBBLES AS A BASE FOOD.
You may use any kibbles that which state “chicken” or any meat and or meat-by-products as the very first ingredient. Must be the first ingredient!
- ¼ C. BACON GREASE OR OIL
- 2 EGGS
- VIT. C AND B
- CAN OF CHICKEN DOG FOOD OR COOKED CHICKEN
- COOKED RICE
- PINCH OF BREWERS YEAST
- PINCH OF ALFALFA
- LEFT OVER MEAT AND BONES FROM TABLE
Put the above ingredients in your blender. Liquefy. Add over kibbles. Put the left over soupy mixture in the refrigerator.
Times daily to feed: (Very young up 3 or 4 times a day) twice a day until 7 months old.
- Vitamins C and B vitamins are needed for large dogs.
- Calcium - must be given for large dogs!
- Skin and coat conditioner - lanitone
- Nutrical – not necessary unless you feel your dog is not getting enough proper nutrition. This is an excellent product which I use for pups that are dying or who are in trouble health wise. For dramatic worm infestation on the system etc…
Young puppies should be fed two, three or four times a day and then gradually cut down from there. Hard, crunchy food as well as soft food should be fed to help insure strong, healthy teeth. The supplements should be added daily according to the label instructions. It is very important that you do not change the diet your new puppy is used to. Keep an eye on your pup’s stools. Dairy products may cause severe diarrhea. Feeding cheese will harden up a soft stool. Fresh room temperature water should be available up until 6:00 pm. If you will be training your pup to potty outside.
When feeding these Dogs - Do not free feed. Our dogs need to grow 100 lbs in one year and they need to eat so here is what I do:
I first feed kibbles of a good quality all he can eat. When he leaves the dish with out any distractions, he is done. Remember how much he ate.
Take the bowl away and now add your additives. Add a blender mixture of about 1 tablespoon of this gravy over the kibbles and mix it in. Let him eat.. when he is done, pick the dish up, now...
Add the chopped up meat and mix that into the gravy and pour this over the kibbles. Because some dogs pick the meat out, I will put the meat in the blended gravy and mix it in the kibbles. The gravy is made out of (eggs,Lanatone, vitamins, bone meal, alfalfa, wheat germ, cottage cheese, yogurt or what ever I can find..)
Yes,I want the dog to gorge. It is all right for our dogs to gorge. It is what canines do. They are not human and they do not do things like we do. As he gets older he can stop gorging but as a puppy, puppies gorge and eat all they can till their bellies are popping. Then they sleep.
When he gets up, he will have to go out side and he will poop a lot. about 30 min later, he may poop again. One hour later he may poop again. And he will sleep.
Feed your puppy four times a day when you first get him, then three times a day. continue twice a day for a whole year, then you can go once a day. Once a day, a dog/canine, will gorge the meat. They may pick berries, grapes, rotten apples, grubs, dirt, and water from streams, but when they attack an animal for meat, they gorge then sleep.
They are most active in cool weather and at night. During the heat of the day, they sleep.
Think like a canne, remember he comes from many thousands of years off the Dire Wolves ancestral tree.
So, most of all, I FEED my puppies. I MAKE them eat, then I feed them again...
If you FREE FEED, the dog gets use to having his food anytime he wants, it also makes the dog become less dependent on you.
