thanks paws, yes I do not like the idea of raw feeding either, which is why I was asking about cooked food I cook a lot of bone stocks for my own soups anyway, so it is not really much extra work. I eat the same veggies my dog would or could eat, and i leave out things like onions etc that he should not eat...

thanks for your help

It is my understanding you shouldn't feed cooked bones as they can splinter which can be very dangerous to dogs .
Apologies if I'm wrong or have misinterpreted what you meant

Personally I would not feed cooked anything. I'm not an advocate of raw feeding but if I could buy and store it the quantity I need for a price i can afford I would. before anyone goes off, I don't live in the Uk and it's not easy to get supplies of raw anything unless you pay a premium price.

Feed what works for you and your dog. Personally I've fed all my dogs on kibble, it's easy and convenient and they wolf it down. They're not overweight for most of the year, except when supplement their own diets with fruit (and veg if they manage to break into the veg garden!) and have fabulous glossy coats and sparkling teeth.

Another raw feeder here, as said in one of the previous posts, cooked bones shouldn't be fed, one benefit of raw feeding as they can be fed raw. My oldest girl is 10 now, and has been raw fed all her life, I've also switched over a number of rescue dogs, and helped 100's of others switch their dogs over through the years. I'm not sure what the health and safety risks are associated with feeding raw, that aren't associated with cooked food if I'm honest, and if you want to feed cooked foods, there are things like lily's kitchen which you can buy, or base your ingredients for your home made version on

I have fed my two Labs home cooked food since they were pups (11 and 9 years now). I looked at kibble, tried the best the money can buy but just wasn't convinced. My main reason for changing was one of my girls has allergies plus I like to actually see what my dogs are eating! My two get cooked turkey, salmon, eggs, usually with rice or sweet potato, they also have raw red meat (I buy fresh and freeze, defrost and then feed raw, this is mainly because one of my girls is unable to tolerate it cooked). They have supplements of salmon oil and green lipped mussel and daily snacks of goats milk and natural live yoghurt and fresh fruit, mainly berries, apples, pears but have to say my two love all fruit!

As other have already said, avoid cooked bones this is dangerous for your dog. I would also agree to make changes very slowly only and maybe consider feeding a home cooked food alongside your regular kibble (mix it in) to start with.

Canine Nutrigenomics written by Dr Jean Dodds is an excellent read for home feeding advice.
