I also mentioned a while back that Mum was looking to change my food from kibble to something that may work better for me.
I apologize that I haven’t managed to do an update sooner on what she selected, the reason for that is also part of the reason for the title of this post!
Here’s the thing, I’ve always eaten ‘Grain Free’ food – Mum decided due to previous experience not to ever give me grains as she knew some dogs don’t react too well and she didn’t want to take any chances that I may have issues.
What she didn’t know was that she also never should have been eating grains – That’s right, it never occurred to her, or apparently to her doctors. My vet always asks “What’s he eating?” – I guess human doctors don’t all see the link between health and food in the same way?
She’s now 42 and just 6 months ago she finally discovered why she was not well. For anyone interested in the full story she’s set up a website http://icanteatadamthing.com where she puts all the good research she finds, recipes, useful links, photos, etc to help anyone else who may have similar issues.
How does that affect me?
Last summer she chickened out of actually trying me on raw food and instead opted for Honest Kitchen Grain Free Dehydrated food. She did a lot of research and was really impressed with the ingredients they used.
I’d always been a fussy eater and often wouldn’t be bothered to eat my food, from the first time she gave me this food I’ve been hooked ever since! I get very happy when she says “Do you want your Dinner?” these days! And the other thing is Mum has never been more proud of my poop, yep she even tells people this – weird, I know!
What I didn’t realize was I might need to watch out, Mum’s been getting frustrated sometimes trying to find quick food that’s as good for her to eat and which won’t cause her body’s immune system to react (it reacts to all kinds of food right now, not just grain).
She has to make all her meals from scratch and tries to ensure they’re as nutrient dense as possible as her body is struggling to absorb nutrients – I even heard her say one time, “Maybe I should just try Snoopy’s food some days, it’s human grade?!” Yes, this is beyond mischief!!
Luckily, so far she hasn’t tried my dinner (I do guard my bowl though!) and she’s always busy looking for recipes, sourcing products and cooking all her food from scratch! This also means that she doesn’t have as much time to help me with my blog just now (she’s also had lots and lots of doctors appointments lately too), so I just want to thank you all for being so patient when we don’t reply so quickly or post as often as we used to! We’re not going anywhere and hope it won’t be long before normal service is resumed!
I’m pretty sure no other dog has to watch out for their humans eyeing up their dinner, right?!
