    is this a balance home cooked meal for my dog?

    Asked: is this a balance home cooked meal for my dog?

    I switched him over to cooking him food. My frist question, if i want 50% meat and 50% rice, can i measure a pound of uncooked meat and a pound of uncooked rice? or does the rice have to be cooked?

    Second question, is this balanced? his next meal will consist of white and brown rice, oatmeal, potatoes, ground turkey, carrots, spinach, celery, a little bit of radish, parsley, egg shells, and a few eggs.

    Third question, how do I know how much to feed him? He's 50 pounds, does he need to eat a pound of food a day? 2 pounds?

    Why won’t my dog eat her food?

    Asked: Why won’t my dog eat her food?

    My dog is a 2 year 8 month old poodle. I got her about 2 months ago. She doesn't eat her meals on a schedule. If I leave food out for her, she'll just eat when she's hungry. Recently, she hasn't been eating a lot. She eats at least only a handful of her food and I have to force her to eat it.
    I haven't changed the brand of dog food. I don't think she's sick, she's still really active and stuff. I've tried mixing something in her food to try and make it more appetizing but she won't even touch it.
    What's wrong with her?

    I want to eat better? Advice?

    Asked: I want to eat better? Advice?

    Well I don't have a horrible diet but I wouldn't say that it is very good either. My current diet is that I eat two pieces of toast with nutella for breakfast, for lunch I find whatever is available in the kitchen (pita chips, tuna, granola bars, carrots, tuna, leftovers), and if I'm hungry for dinner (depends on what I ate for lunch) I usually have some meat and rice or pasta.
    So anyways I would really like some more options to choose from. Like I really like tuna but I know I can't eat that every day because of the traces of mercury in it. Any canned fish that tastes similar to tuna but doesn't poison you slowly? I'm so tired of basic sandwiches too. I would like to eat more salads because I do like them but making them is so annoying so I'd like some good recipes so it is worth it. Some smoothie ideas would be good too. I don't really care for most fruits but if they are blended I'm more willing to eat them.

    Well just give me some ideas. I hate being hungry and I also hate having to think of what to eat. Sometimes I wish I could be like my dog and just have a complete meal put in front of me and not have to think about food. I'm not trying to lose weight, I'm small enough already so no miserable starvation diets. I just want to eat better.

    What Raw Meats Should I Feed My Dog With Food Allergies?

    Asked: What Raw Meats Should I Feed My Dog With Food Allergies?

    I am going to start my dog on a raw food diet and was wondering what to feed him? He has food allergies so I know chicken is a no. What about turkey and duck? And are there any other meats he would likely be allergic too? A list of meats I COULD feed him would be helpful. He is a 9 year old 35lb beagle. The food allergies give him skin irritations and itches non stop.

    I’m living with my in-laws and I CANT STAND IT! HELP!?

    Asked: I’m living with my in-laws and I CANT STAND IT! HELP!?

    Its a long story but my boyfriend and I are stuck living with his parents for about half a year. My boyfriend is wonderful, sweet etc. However its a different story when hes with his parents. At first, I thought it was him being a rotten son. No. The mother has control problems, is paranoid, and just crazy. There are so many examples but Ill give a few:
    She serves him food when hes in bed
    I tell her I dont need another damn cushion behind my back, she gives me another one
    The dog is not allowed walking down the driveway without her consent and supervision
    She nails up wood in front of all the windows (I cant see jack **** out my windows because they are seriously boarded up)
    When we fight(which is normal) she feels she needs to intervene.
    SHE LIES.(and she doesnt do it that discreetly either.)
    She lets her grandson eat, eat and play video games on an iphone all day everyday. The boy literally doesnt do anything and he is dangerously obese. But she feels she best for him, more than the boys real mother.
    She basically did everything for my boyfriend, made him a mamas boy his whole life, made him feel paranoid about everything. (I had to fight with her because she didnt want me running on the track across the street) Now my boyfriend has severe anxiety, depression, a need for attention constantly. The reason for that is, his mother helicoptered him so badly that when he turned 21 she just went cold turkey and began doing it to her young grandson. Same ****. Messing up a childs life.
    My boyfriend now is working on his anxiety, and now that we are living with them temporarily, he constantly tries to show his mother that he cannot do the same **** to his nephew. But she is just in denial and crazy.
    Well basically my question is, I am ready to explode on this lady. But I am grateful she let us stay with them. So how should I keep my cool?
    Also, what are ways to help my boyfriend not explode either and maybe help improve our relationship? Because a lot of fights we have is because of how crazy they are. Its a big load, but idk what else to do.

    *We are stuck there, no getting out of it financially
    *My boyfriend is worth all of it.

    If animals could speak, would humanity weep?

    Asked: If animals could speak, would humanity weep?

    I have just watched animals being skinned alive, rabbits, dogs and cats, i only watched a few minutes of it because it was vile. If these animals could speak our language and beg to be allowed to live how many human would change their views on animal cruelty. If animals could speak to us would we respect their rights more?

    Proper care for a dog?

    Asked: Proper care for a dog?

    I just acquired a Christmas present for myself and my family, a seven month old golden lab.
    I'm keeping her at a friends place until tomorrow evening, I got her from an ad on a local classifieds paper. She's been wormed and had her shots. But man as she rode in my car she stunk! Needs a shower, BUT it's cold as heck up here where I'm at in Washington and I don't think giving her a shower outside is safe or good. How can I get her clean or at least deodorize her so she doesn't stink? Without having her freeze to death.

    She also leaves hair everywhere, but I think that's just because I need to give her a shower somehow then brush her and all the loose hair off.

    1. Anyone know of a good brush I can find at walmart for this?
    2. Also, a good way to clean her without exposing her to this freezing hell?

    Thank you
