What Is the Best Food for my Dog?

Picking the right dog food for your pet can be a daunting task! Just walking into a pet store and gazing up and down countless aisles of food can give a pet owner the “heebie-jeebies”. That’s probably why most people pick one food and stick with it. It’s just too hard for the lay person to know which food is best.Knowing that a friend, relative, or neighbor feeds one type of food, or looking at a healthy coat in an active dog at a dog park may sway anyone to pick the same brand or type. In reality each individual dog may fare better with one type or another of dog food. As the saying goes, “one man’s meat may be another man’s poison.” In the case of pets that means that certain ingredients are tolerated better by different dogs.

leanmeatsfatburningfood.jpgHeavy dogs need less fat and less carboydrates in the diet. That translates to leaner pieces of chicken or beef that you are sharing, and less of those carbohydrate laden  biscuits. The extra fat and extra carbs just add extra calories that they need to burn off! I always remind my clients to feed baby carrots, small pieces of lean meat, chicken jerky, freeze dried raw fish or other veggies and fruit or high protein/ low fat treats.biscuits

Allergic or itchy dogs need a limited ingredient diet that does not include common allergens like wheat, beef, barley, and chicken. Blue Buffalo, Natural Balance, Merricks, Fromms, Halo, and Evanger have a great assrtment of “grain free” limited diet dog foods that may help dogs with chronic itchiness, ear infections, or diarrhea (stomach upset and seizures too.) Good choices for the allergic type are salmon/sweet potato, rabbit/ potato, duck/potato, and venison/ potato.  Image result for fish potato taste of the wild

I’ve always tried to feed my dogs a combination of quality dog food, healthy human food, healthy omega oils, raw food, and homecooked dog food. I pick foods with a higher protein and lower carb percentage ( protein>30%, carbohydrates< 40%, dry food and protein> 8%, carbohydrates< 10% canned food) and avoid wheat, barley, and beef.(Some dogs are allergic to chicken and tolerate beef!) I add fish oil and sardines frequently along with my own home cooking! I usually feed canned food, raw food, and home cooked food because I think moisture in food is real important and helps prevent medical problems.

Brain Food

Did you know tomorrow is National Donut Day? Donuts have always held a special place in my family’s heart. Mystical, you might even say.

I grew up in New England, where Dunkin Donuts are as ubiquitous as Starbucks and McDonalds. Driving through for a box of Munchkins was our way of celebrating, commiserating, or simply getting a sugar fix.

For my grandfather, the Dunk was also a neighborhood gathering place where he went to shoot the breeze, down a jelly donut with a coffee regular (it’s a Massachusetts thing), and read the newspaper. Always a neatly folded newspaper. At his memorial service, there was actually an entire Dunkin Donuts contingent who came to pay their respects, which made me feel better about sneaking a bag of Munchkins into his hand at the wake. It’s what he would have wanted.

When my parents moved to California in the mid-80s, we lost that donut connection, because Californians aren’t really that into donuts. They became a special occasion sort of thing, and with that excuse my mother made sure that when we got them, they weren’t just regular old donuts but those big chocolate slathered cream puff monstrosities. It was our homage to the past, comfort food for the sweets obsessed.

When Emmett was diagnosed with lymphoma, I bought him a doggie donut because, well, what else are you supposed to do. Enjoy your donuts while you can and party on. I took what to be a bit of an iconic photo that sort of defines this blog:

donut

When life gives you lemons, throw them away and eat a donut because making lemonade is way too much work.

My son turned 9 yesterday, and as I was planning what treat he wanted to bring into school for his classmates, I asked him: “Cupcakes or popsicles?”

“Donuts,” he promptly replied. “OK,” I said, “you shall have birthday donuts.”

At 5 am on his birthday, he crawled into bed with me. “I couldn’t sleep,” he said. “I’m just so excited about my birthday.”

At 5:30 on his birthday, my mother died.

And so we sat, dumbstruck, for a bit and attended to the things one must attend to, and then my dad and I sat on the bed side by side and said, “Now what are we supposed to do?”

So we went and got some !@#$ !#@!#@!# donuts.

You can be sad and happy at the same time. That is the joy and pain of being human.

So when I say I’m happy tomorrow is National Donut Day, I mean it. It is a day to not only eat a literal donut, which I hope you do, but to put aside the petty crap of who bought the best end of the school year gift and whether or not your net carbs are coming in under 30 grams, but to say,

“I AM EATING A DONUT BECAUSE I CAN AND I AM GOING TO ENJOY IT, DAMMIT.” Because one day, you might wish you had.

Eat a

And if you want to make me smile, I would love if you- or your dog, or you and your dog*- have a donut in Pat’s honor tomorrow (or today, who cares) and share a photo of you enjoying it with me. We would both love that. And for every photo here, on Twitter, or Instagram with the #brainfood I will donate a dollar up to, I don’t know, $ 500, to the National Brain Tumor Society because Mom still had a lot of donuts left in her to enjoy, dammit, and two months was not nearly enough time to let her know that.

Mother’s Day, 2015 at the beach. Each day is a gift and a chance to eat a donut.
