Default What's your boxer eating?

What do you feed your boxer? *If kibble, what brand, how much do you spend say in a month, and how much and how often do you feed?

As I mentioned in another post, Jaxon eats Science Diet puppy at the moment (looking to switch), he has not yet finished the first bag so I don't have a $ amount in spending, and he eats 2-3 cups three times a day.

Thanks a lot!

Xena is currently eating a store brand food (which is really crappy) but will soon be switching to a holistic food....Nutro Ultra or Blue Buffalo. Solid gold is also a good one. Merrick is a good one as mentioned above. There are a few things you want to watch our for in dry dog food....by-products, which are parts of an animal we wouldn't eat (beaks, feet, feathers....would you believe we actually feed this to our fur kids??) and corn, which is a filler, has no nutritional value, is only put in there to make your dog feel full, and many many dogs are allergic to it. I was doing research on dog foods and it seems to me that real food (or "people food" as some call it) is what they should be eating, however, most of us cannot afford that. So look for a good holistic food with no corn or by-products.

my boy has been on royal canin since he was able to eat, it has a special line dedicated to boxers, everyone always comments on his coat- how shinny and beautiful it looks costs about 50 bucks a month so far 2 to 3 x a day. we are happy with it, stools are consistant etc.

Henry gets Nutro Natural Choice. *Was the regular whatever type, but it was making him vomit, so we switched to Lamb and Rice formula and haven't had any problems since. *He gets 2 cups twice a day. *We buy it at Tractor Supply Co., it's way cheaper than at PetCo., $20 for a 20 pound bag. *Lasts about a month, I guess, never paid attention.

We started out with the same thing the breeder fed: *Diamond for large breed puppies. *Switched to raw and loved the fact that he suddenly went wild over his meals and that the *doggy odor completely disappeared. *But since he's been sick and just doesn't have the energy for tearing into raw meaty bones, we're feediing him Dr. Pitcairn's "Doggie Oats. *He absolutely loves the stuff, but I'm not very happy with feeding so much grain to an animal whose digestive system simply isn't suited for it.
