Default Chihuahua pup- should eat cottage cheese??

I was reading a feeding guide from a chihuahua breeder ,she says to feed Eukanuba and cottage cheese Or plain yogurt . Has anyone on here feed a dog Cottage cheese? im gonna try it (THE COTTAGE CHEESE ) maybe the pup needs the calcium.I dont think it would hurt, maybe just smelly poop.

DeniseDenise,
Please just get your little girl on a premium dog food. Read up on the kibble in the nutrion section. It seems you have been asking for lots of the same advice and just don't want to take it.

Even in your paragraph here... You ask about feeding it and than just say I'm going to try it.

Your chihuahua needs to be on a premium consistent diet. Chihuahua's are prone to hypoglycemia. I think I have told you this in 3-4 posts already.

Pedigree, Eukanuba, Science Diet... there are much better foods out there. None of which will cost to feed due to the size of your pup. I fed California Natural at $46 a bag and due to some very helpful people on this forum, I switched to Canidae at $33 a bag. I am still feeding a premium food but I am saving $13 a bag which is a huge difference when you feed a dane.

Please go to the nutrition section and do some reading. Get your little girl on a consistent diet before she has a seizure...

Excuse me but Hypoglycemia was mentioned once not 3 or 4 times.
When I mentioned Ekanuba its because I didnt want anyone to think just cottage cheese, YES as I stated Im going to buy the best food I can Find but that doesnt mean it might not need the cottage cheese This Breeder is selling Her puppies for 1500.00 and Up She must be doing something right.
Here read it at ... http://wizardofclaws.com/
I was wondering if any one else feeds cottage cheese Thats ALL.
Sorry you THINK im not taking anyone heres advise.Thank you again.
P.S.
My vechile is at the repair shop for 5 days now OR i would have gone to get NEW food already.

I am sorry if you took my post as rude but I have mentioned hypoglycemia to you more than in this thread
http://www.dogforum.org/showpost.php...69&postcount=7
is just one of the posts I made to you discussing hypoglycemia
it is very important to know what you are doing with your little chi to avoid seizures.
As far as the link you provided I have never put any merit into puppy mills or byb's and would never take advice from such.

Price of pups doesn't determine quality. A reputable breeder sells one maybe two breeds of dogs. They breed to the standards of the breed and not to line their pockets.

IMO if you feed a high quality premium food you will have the best luck ... Please do some research in the nutrition section of this forum and forget about doing online research if you are researching puppy mills and byb's for advice. I am sure you want an unbiased opinion and I am sure you want to do the best thing for your dog which is why you joined the forum in the first place.

Edited to add imo wizard of claws is a broker and a reputable breeder does not need to use a broker. They usually have a waiting list for their pups and do not need to resort to this type of marketing. Also reputable breeders do not call the runts of their litters teacups. There is no such thing as a teacup chihuahua, teacup poodle or teacup of any breed.

I think you will find this forum very helpful and informative if you choose to use it. We have some experts at training, nutrition and those who are great at giving kudos to a job well done. Everyone here wants what is best for their pets which is why they are here. We are lucky to have those willing to share their knowledge. I know it has saved me tons of heartache and money

Sorry, but I would not go by what "Wizard of Claws" says. Most certainly one of the most sickening breeders I've seen in my life. They have 10+ different breeds on their site, not counting the large breeds. No reputable breeder breeds numerous breeds of dogs including purposely breeder mixed breeds.


I do feed my dogs plain yogurt or lowfat cottage cheese on occasion. They each get a tablespoon so I would imagine your pup would get about 1 teaspoon or less.

Seems you're asking a lot of food-related questions, which is good, but honestly you won't need to worry about cottage cheese or yogurt as soon as you're able to find a quality food.

Just wanted to state thre obvious here, although it dosnt hurt on occasion, dogs arent supposed to have dairy products as they cannot digest them properly.

Dlambertz is correct. You need to feed your dog a quality food which is properly formulated for dogs regardless of the choice of foods.

I also have to agree with Muttlies' statement & find that site to be extraordinarly commercialized in addition to the absolute appearance of being a puppy mill attempting to give off a posh designer image. You very well may have gotten a nice, healthy pup from this breeder but from all appearances their ethics would undoubtedly be questioned by anyone with a reputable breeding program.

Exactly! However, I don't think the occasional treat of cottage cheese is necessarily a bad thing.

Personally my vet doesn't sell quality food. I am glad to see you did not buy from wizard of claws. Please still look at the nutrition folder of this forum. I know it will help you make a very informed decision in selecting the perfect food for your pups.
