Feeding Maisie involves a lot more than just food. Her main meal consists of a 1/2 lb. of raw food, twice per day. This 2 lb. container lasts (35 lb.) Maisie two days, and I usually rotate turkey, chicken, beef and duck:
She now also gets one freeze-dried raw patty per feeding after I noticed she lost a bit of weight over the winter (alternating between duck and chicken, as they crumble more easily than the beef or lamb versions).
But in addition to her actual food, Maisie receives a variety of supplements:
Besides her prescription Clomicalm for separation anxiety (which she gets twice a day), her a.m. routine also includes a glucosamine chew. Before I started giving her these, she sometimes limped a bit after a full day of daycare but that stopped completely with the glucosamine. And she loves the chicken-y taste!
In the evening, Maisie gets an Omega-3 acid capsule which benefits her overall health and helps keep her coat nice and shiny. The ones I have are actually for people (Maisie and I share them) and are generously supplied by a friend who works for a pharmaceutical company, but there are plenty of pet brands too.
I also give her a probiotic at night to reduce occurrences of intestinal distress. She still has toxic farts though.
Finally, I always sprinkle some enzyme powder (with more probiotics) over any servings of raw. It aids digestion and and helps Maisie to better absorb all the nutrients in her food.
Phew!!! All that stuff just to keep one little dog healthy and well-fed...
Thankfully, my own fueling routine is much simpler...at least in the morning!
