What do you feed your pet(s)?

I just adopted an adorable little puppy and trying to find the right diet for her can be so difficult. I was curious to see what Edenities feed their four-legged family members.

commercial food for all, but the cockatoo eats human food along with the dogs

Specialty food for my cat, though I'm really considering switching her to a raw diet once we move next month. My friend works at a specialty pet store and says that often feeding your pet a raw diet can cost less than regular food, you just need to know how. She use to get eggs and raw fish more regularly, but I haven't in a while.

My Poodle has an extremely sensitive stomach, and only the Royal Canin Potato and Duck Veterinary Diet food works for him.

I have to feed my dog prescription food that I buy from my vet. He has been eating it for about a year now. Sometimes when money is tighter I have mixed his food with rice to stretch it out a few more days until my next paycheck. He loves when I add rice to his food, but I know it's better for him to eat his prescription food.

I feed my cat Costco brand cat food. It's good quality for the price: no byproducts or other junk. I wish it didn't have rice, but what can you really expect for a $20 25-lb bag of food?

I have to feed the cats prescription cat food--my little guy that pees on the toilet has issues and needs a special food. The dogs get a specialty brand dog food--I grab it from the vet's office when I get the cat food. There is no particular reason for the puppies, but it is very convenient for me to grab them all at the same time.

We use commercial pet food for our puppy, but not the cheapest of the bunch. We went through a few to find one that agreed with him, but he does well on Beneful.

If I don't have much money I go Purina, but If I've got extra I spring for science diet or blue buffalo. It's so much better for animals.

I dont know what brand she feeds the cat.

My cat is super finicky and will only eat Meow Mix.

I use Purina One. I used to use Science Diet which is also a good commercial food. Whatever you use, make sure that meat is the number 1 ingredient. Some cheaper dog foods will have mainly fillers. The first item listed in the ingredients is always the item that the product has the most of and it goes down from there.

We used to feed our Mastiff Blue Buffalo, didn't like it because it made him farty. Then we put him on some other designer food (that didn't have chicken in it, turns out he's allergic to chicken) but it turned out that the protein levels were so high his liver was on the brink of shutting down. So now he's on Kirkland Brand (Costco) Premium Adult Dog food (Lamb, no chicken). The ingredients are comparable to the designer dog foods but the protein levels are 22% not 34%. Also it's half as expensive!

It's never good to change up your pets food often. You should find one you know you can always afford and stick with it.

We feed our 2 cats and dog Blue Buffalo Wilderness.

We used to feed the outdoor cat store-brand cat food because it was cheaper. (The indoor cat got the Friskies food.) We forgot to pick it up for a while and started feeding her the Friskies and now she refuses to eat the generic stuff.

As for all this, "Oh, you shouldn't feed your pets those foods!" that the natural food commercials spout out... yeah. I refuse to pay that much for food for a cat. The conventional stuff is expensive as it is.

My favorite brands are:
- Innova
- Artemis
- Wellness
- Fromm
- AvoDerm

It doesn't have to be expensive to be quality food. I used to use Royal Canin until I realized that. But honestly, find the price range you're comfortable with and then the food your baby likes to eat. The fact that you care about the nutritional value will help you find the right one!

Here's what I used to research my dog food before selecting:

I leave out hard food and feed them soft food occasionally as a treat.

We feed our cats Nutri-Source Chicken and Rice dry food. It has a lower ash content and less corn/grains in it then the cheap stuff from Walmart we used to give them.

My dog is SOOOO healthy. It's absolutely insane how healthy she is. She gets Purina food, but her preferred food is called professional or something like that, but that stuff is SPENDY!

We give our cats Castor & Pollux Organix Indoor Adult dry food and Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance canned food. When we had dogs they were always vegetarian.

Contrary to what most people believe, dogs are actually omnivores and can live quite, and actually most times more, healthily on a vegetarian or even vegan diet. (:
