I have a love/hate relationship with Greenies. McKenzy LOVES them and BEGS for them everyday, however I hate that they are so expensive.

I'm kinda lucky - my groomer sales them and always gives me a deal. Plus with small dogs, I cut them in half (or sometimes even thirds!)

I work at the petstore so I get a discount on them. HE gets ATLEAST one every month. He loves them but eats them pretty fast. My dog is a lab so he gets the largest size. They come in a size that comes in a jar, for sprinkling! They are the size of ..... a tictac! They are for "birds and small critters too" it says. Ive never fed them to the other animals though, there teeth seem just fine

I have recently switched my dogs, and my cat, to Chicken soup. My German shepherd is a pretty good eater anyway, but she just loves this food. I'm switching my chihuahua over to it, and he's eating the Chicken soup out of it, and spitting the old food out; then he'll finish it off.

Actually, in a lot of commercial pet foods, Budigirl is correct. Shelters and veterinarian offices often have rendering plants pick up the euthanized animals. These animals are rendered into a dry protein product and sold to pet food industries. The FDA has even done a study on the levels of pentobarbitol (the drug used to euthanize animals) in pet food.

I highly suggest reading these articles. This is fact, not fiction.

http://www.nexusmagazine.com/Petfood.html
Excerpt: The US Food and Drug Administration's Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is aware of the use of rendered dogs and cats in pet foods, but has stated: "CVM has not acted to specifically prohibit the rendering of pets. However, that is not to say that the practise of using this material in pet food is condoned by the CVM."

Dogs and cats in pet food, boy that's a new one I've never heard,lol.

I really don't think chicken soup is a balanced meal for a dog.
I do believe in making your own dog food with people food but you would have to get a variety of foods(get a book on it) and make it 100% compleat and balanced for them- maybe add vitimins too.
That's too much work for me, that's why I buy good quality dog food instead.
