    Default Diet Type?

    Chris Atkinson had started a thread on BARF diets and so I am going to give this Poll thing a try. What do RTF members feed? Starting out the poll with ProPlan Large Breed Puppy. Anything else is too much work or mess! :microwave:

    Black Gold Premium Dog Food. The owner is a hound field trial enthusiast and judge. Thisis the most popular food among working Bloodhound owners. It was originally developped with their needs in mind.

    When the California legislature was looking at banning hunting with dogs, Black Gold was the only dog food company to act against it.

    They advertise in RFTN.

    EUK Large Breed Premium Performance
    He's got a little Mississippi Leg-Hound in him. Once he starts though, it's best to just let him finish.

    Pro Plan, and homemade dog cookies, plus any leftovers from the fridge. Also any apple peelings, fruit or stuff from prepairing supper. Coats look great and they have lots of energy.

    Pro Plan (performance, adult and puppy)

    BTW Labdoc, our repro vet discussed with us at one of our last breedings some interesting info they found on barf diets at the last repro convention in colorado (actually probably the one before the last one, which would have taken place last month).

    She said that studies found that puppies raised on barf, from bitches fed barf, had serious abnormalities and problems with malnutrition. She was going over with us several of the major things she had learned at the conference, and that was one of them. I haven't read Chris's thread on barf (I don't even remember seeing it), so some of this may or may not have been discussed there....
