To all pet lovers here I might ask your suggestions. What's the Best Food for Pitbull? My friend died :cry: and her wife left Big Bogart to me, his a 6 months old American Pit Bull Terrier. This is my first time to have a dog. I was looking online at

For a starter, is there anything else I need to know? Any recommendations?

Pitt Bulls are good dogs. First recommendation I would make is to find a Vet that you are Comfortable with, and go with his/her recommendations. When it comes to food I would recommend a good large breed puppy food, and keep him on it until a year old, and then switch to large breed regular dog food. There is really no need to get it through the Vet, if they recommend it. We currently feed ours Purina One,as I have our last few dogs. We currently have a 7 month on Lab/Pitt mix, he is a rescue dog, and you could not ask for a better puppy/dog, is is already at 75 pounds last Vet visit. They are highly intelligent but cam also be stubborn and hard to train. Pet Smart and Petco both offer training courses for them as well, which I highly recommend. They may not be the best, but are a good place to start for a new owner. Your Vet could also guide you in this matter.

Good luck and enjoy your new family member. They are wonderful, and will provide you with years of companionship.

Dear Cookie,

I adopted a rescue pit bull at 18 months. I feed him Taste of the Wild Venison and Bison and he eats it as soon as it hits his dish. Unless you exercise the dog a lot you don't need to feed them anywhere near as much food as most dog food manufacturers recommend.

My dog goes 70 pounds and 2 1/2 cups of food split into a morning and evening feeding seems to be plenty as he had all the energy he needs and hasn't gained any weight.

Regards,

Tim Murphy

I've had dogs all my life and my last two lived well beyond their life expectancy without any veterinary intervention beyond regular checkups and vaccinations. They didn't just have years in their life. They also had a lot of life in those years. The problem with commercial food is that no matter how many good, 'human-grade' ingredients go into them the preparation is horrendous. What you have left is a bag of food with a 6-12 month expiration period that is the equivalent of all the processed garbage foods in the middle of the grocery store that medical professionals tell us to avoid. Regulations concerning preparation, ingredient listing and advertising are suspect for products made for human consumption. Can you imagine how it is for pet food? The only way to make sure that your dog is getting something more than the K9 equivalent of potato chips and beef jerky twice a day is to make it yourself. There are plenty of recipes around. My dog is about 120lbs and preparing his food takes 4-5 hours. It gives me about 6 weeks of food that I freeze in individual portions. I'm convinced that the time and effort I put into preparing dog food myself has saved me a ton of vet visits along with the expense and emotion that goes with them. I wouldn't eat processed, extruded pellets that can sit on a shelf for almost a year and so I won't feed it to my dog. There are some foods similar to a home preparation available but as a specialty product supply can be unreliable and they are far more expensive than home preparation.

Another vote for Taste of the Wild (TOTW). I've been feeding my boxers this for over 10years without issues. I initially did a ton of research into foods and came to the conclusion that unless I was going to feed them a raw diet, TOTW was a top 3 choice. I can't remember what other brands I was considering, but I do remember them all being very close in price and nutritional profiles.

Dear Cookie,

If you decide to feed your dog dry dog food I would like to suggest that you consider buying from Chewy.com. I've been dealing with them since I adopted our dog Bear and have had zero issues with every transaction. I am set up with them for auto-shipment of dog food and they always send an email reminder prior to shipment. If I have enough food for a while still around it's easy to extend the ship date without any issues.

Regards,

Tim Murphy :-)
