Our corgis are raw fed, initially just meats w/bone (chcken, turkey, duck necks), and w/o bone, and organs, then we added some SoJo's vegies. Mostly beef, chicken and turkey, plus eggs and canned salmon. Lamb and duck when we can get it reasonably, pork when its on sale. Currently we are using recipes from Dr. Becker's Natural Food for Dogs book and grinding our own meats and vegies for them. They have no weight problems, and have white shiny teeth and soft glossy coats. We make most of our treats as well; dehydrated liver, beef and chicken, and some biscuit recipes but use alternative flours to avoid grains as much as possible.We also use some Taste of the Wild or Evo kibble in the kongs and other treat dispenser chews/toys, along with the homemade treats.
Orijen for me right now. Although it is make his poop unbelievably smelly.
Nature's Domain from Costco. Usually get the different kinds from there, but that is the current one right now. Sweet Potato and Salmon.
I feed Tipper Blue Buffalo Grain-Free Duck daily and to keep things from getting boring, I feed her a diversified menu of sardines, chicken, turkey and beef three or four times a week (she's fed twice daily), plus cooked egg yolks and sweet potato every two weeks or so. Her fur is really soft and shiny, her stool is solid, she has tons of energy and a clean bill of health from the vet so I can only assume that it's working for her.
I used to mix a little Organix canned wet food in with her dry food but now I'd much rather mix in a little sardines or chicken.
Twice a day - 1/2 cup dry dog food, 1-2 tablespoon of wet or 2 tablespoon of additional dry if we are out of wet. Add enough water to make fairly soupy. Vet said she was a little dehydrated, so I figure for sure she'll drink down the water with her food.
right now emi is getting wellness just for puppy for large breeds, and when shes older she will be on wellness core! i also feed my cats wellness core, and i just really trust this brand. wellness core also has a 6 star premium food rating on dogfoodanalysis.com, so whats not to love! it is a little hefty on the wallet, but i always want my babies to have the best (: eventually, id like to incorporate other things in her diet that are good for her, but since im a new dog owner, i still have lots to learn!

In the mornings, we get a scoop of vanilla yogurt put into each bowl of dry dog food. The yogurt helps with urinary tract infections. In the evenings, my mom will water down the food, and we divide up a can of sardines and mix it in there food.
They get carrots as treats. We also give them rawhides to chew. We used to give antlers and pigs ears, but Ein winded up getting a splinter of it stuck in his throat. Not a happy event.
We have checked with our retailer and our bag was not part of the canidae recall. We have also been informed that canidae will be making there food at there facility in austin, texas. Not in the diamond foods facility.
Although our retailer had all 5 of her dogs effected by the recall, she purchased Taste of the Wild.
Some of the SYMPTOMS include anxiety, bloating of the stomach, sometimes the stomach became hard, diarrhea or throwing up. PLEASE USE CAUTION WITH THE FOOD RECALL!! Any dogs effected need to be taken to their local vet immediately!
I hope this helps!
