Mylo has food allergies. I know for sure she's allergic to beef (so odd) and wheat products (gluten). She turns bright red and itches, and it can affect her behavior somewhat, too. For a long time, I was feeding her lamb & rice food, the only brand at my local store. When I could I would get the high end stuff that didn't have any beef/wheat gluten in it, and she did great with that. She used to do okay with the lamb/rice stuff, but as it turns out, wheat is like the third ingredient in it, and it's not really THAT much better than any other generic crap food as far as she's concerned. Now that I have Klaus eating us out of house and home, I have decided to just start cooking for Mylo (she doesn't eat much) and only feeding Klaus dog food. I will continue to feed him the rice and lamb food, it's pretty good food and he does well on it... I cooked chicken breasts for treats this weekend, but at the end of the weekend, that needs to go and be replaced by fresh treats...here's what I fixed: I boiled venison for the new treats... I took the cooked, chopped chicken and mixed it with cooked, cold oatmeal, and added some of the venison broth to moisten it, and that's what Mylo got last night and this morning. There's enough for about 2 more days, I think...and then we'll do the same with the venison. then we'll move on to the next type of meat..possibly salmon, I have some big chunks of freezer burned salmon in there that I'm not really interested in eating. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Hopefully will see a less red, less itchy Mylo in about 2 days. If I can keep the kids from feeding her/letting her steal the food they eat. Last night she got a whole bowl of potatoes and hamburger gravy...the potatoes are fine, but hamburger and flour...yikes.
