    Kya is very enthusiastic about her walks, but if you really want to see her go ballistic, ask her if she wants to go do a wee.

    We have lots of good-ass cats at the center now. Like Billy, who lost his eyes to an infection but is still a very sweet boy who loves to play and climb.

    How're my grey friends doing lately?
    Atrus had 5 teef out in June.



    He's doing fine* now though.


    He's looking too thin (even for a grey) so we've swapped his food to something a bit more grainey. He's also started on arthritis supplements. He'll be 11 this september.

    Something with a higher fat content by weight might help him chunk up a bit. Grains are typically just filler in dog food, no? I thought they pretty much just go straight through and get shat out unprocessed? Or am I completely wrong on that?

  • bowenbowen How you doin'? Registered User regular
    Nah they can eat them just like we can.

    IIRC: Grains in particular will bulk up dogs, dietary fat is kind of garbo for putting on weight. You want those sexy carbs baby. High protein is also good, but hard on the kidneys and their bodies as a whole.

    not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me

    So we had been giving him grian free his whole life, because that is what the world decided was good for dogs for a while, but at his last checkup I mentioned he seemed a bit thin, even for a grey, and the doctor was like "greyhounds don't need grain free food, they need grains." So. Y'know. Whoops.

    We got him new food and even the cat was trying to eat out of his bowl at the same time, so I guess it's good.

    Also, WRT grain-free dog food, there have been some concerns from vets and the FDA.

    https://www.aspca.org/news/grain-free-pet-food-helpful-or-harmful-diet
    What’s the Cause for Concern?

    Over the past couple of years, veterinary cardiologists noticed an increase in the number of dogs they saw who had dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), a heart condition that decreases the heart’s ability to pump blood. There are some dog breeds that are more likely to develop DCM, but the cardiologists were diagnosing the condition in breeds without a known genetic predisposition, so the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) began an investigation.

    What Did the FDA Find?

    The FDA received 515 reports of DCM in dogs between January 1, 2014, and April 30, 2019. When they looked into what these dogs were eating, they found that 90% were on a grain-free food and 93% were on diets that contained peas and/or lentils. The foods were tested for minerals, metals and amino acids and no significant abnormalities were found.

    What Does This All Mean?

    A relationship between grain-free diets and the development of DCM hasn’t been fully proven. However, there are numerous reports of dogs with DCM whose condition improved or completely resolved after they were taken off a BEG diet and started on a special amino acid supplementation (Taurine). The short answer is, we still don’t know why this is happening, but it appears that DCM is more likely to occur in dogs who are only eating BEG diets.

    Still a lot of unknowns, but we switched off grain-free at our vet's advice.

    Yeah at our last vet checkup for the dogs we were told in no uncertain terms to stop using grain free food and avoid all the boutique brands, if at all possible, because apparently Tufts has found an association with boutique foods in general and heart murmurs in dogs. Stick to Iams, Purina, and Science Diet, is the advice we were given, since those haven't been associated with any pathologies by Tufts or NC State.

  • bowenbowen How you doin'? Registered User regular
    The "grain free" ones that toss in things like potatoes instead of corn are the good ones I think.
