In preparation of this goal, I switched my pooch to an all-natural, human-grade, holistically-formulated dry food, Wellness Super-5 Complete Health. To the food each day, I add one or two scrambled eggs from Deep Springs Farm whose chickens are pasture-raised six miles from my house.
This arangement was supposed to be just for the interim; something to use in between her previous bad-dog-food diet and future suitable-for-people diet. A sort of weaning, if you will. But now, we’re kind of stuck on it. She loves the food, I feel good about it, and now I’m trying unsuccessfully to find a reason to continue the process and switch to a fully homemade diet.
Although I purchased a supplements powder and nutritional yeast several months ago, I’ve yet to make the kibble that I would mix with the powders. From what I can tell, the quality and cost of switching will be the same as her current diet, but with much more effort and investment of time. Also, once the supplements are factored in, I’m not so sure how much more it’s homemade than the Wellness food and egg diet.
And so, in conclusion... I’m marking this as done ;)
It wasn’t what I had in mind when I put it on the list, but “semi-making my own dog food” is what this thing ended up being. I’m okay with that :) 5 years ago
