Eukanuba dog food.

#1
I have recently got my new Alaskan Malamute puppy, ( absolutely adorable).
I have been feeding him on Eukanuba Puppy Large breed, but the other day I was told that the company that owns Eukanuba test the dog food on animals (and I dont just mean seeing if they like the taste), by breaking the dogs leg and seeing how well the dog heels on their food. To anybodys knowledge is this true, or is it spread by animal rights groups. I have always tried to ensure that my dogs recieve the best, especially for the first year of growing. When they are older they do tend to get spoiled with their food (smoked salmon, venison and even grouse), but I would rather not feed them on anything that has come about by other dogs suffering.

Actually they force feed the dog through a funnel, like geese for foi gras and then they shoot them with a 9mm to see if the nuclear waste has given the dog super powers!

I wouldn't imagine it came to heel very easily with a broken leg! 😉

most of this is put out by the anti vivisection crowd and wound up out of proportion like the training army medics on drugged up pigs. just about every producer has some skeleton in the closet about animal testing.

if you want to test the dog food is properly balanced then its possible a lab will use clinically damaged animals to do a range of studies to make sure there is enough nutrition in there. it's a needs of the many outweighing the needs of the few scenario.

I would have thought it was better to have a food which can help the repair of an animal as it should mean there is what you want in there to help it grow. I'd rather they broke a dogs leg than grew it with a substandard food and the problems associated with calcium deficiency.

Never seen it done but I suppose it might work. You should ask the badger diggers. They are not shy when it comes to training dogs.

Personally I tend to shout HEEL and point at my heel. You need to clip the hairy little ******* around the ears a few times, but dogs learn fast. If they do not, I tend to kneck them and throw them in the river. Then get one of their litter mates and start again.

I really cannot see how breaking their legs will help. Unless you break their legs then go HEEL. They will stay there on account of their broken legs. But when you say "walk on" the job is a bit fucked, eh?

Eukanuba is ancient Latin for "fleece the animal's owner for some scientific sounding dog scran, which you can pay 1/10th of the cost for the same kind of stuff from Asda".

Some of the above may have been lost in translation but the gist of it is correct.

Eukanuba is owned by Procter & Gamble. I suspect the story about breaking legs is just that, although what they get up to in Septic-land is generally beyond me.

Ask Ugly, he's got good advice on dog nutrition.

Allow me to help those of us who suffered a secondary school education. Procter & Gamble. Those lovely people who invented the same product, from the same production line, for humans. They call it Pringles.

Horse meat in the food chain? Do a Google on Soylant Green. It is a matter of time.

Three minutes ahead of me there you young whippersnapper. P&G. While the whole world bleats on about being fet shite horsemeat instead of mechanically reclaimed cow meat, P&G is researching huge chemical processes to feed us and our dogs, kids and Nannies pure shite.

I would rather eat a horses anus raw than a Pringles. At least a horses arse is organic and I would recognise the ingredients.

good idea to mix it with mince which is cheap as chips from Lidls / aldis etc.
You can buy a horse from the knackers yard for £70. Chuck it in a stall then open the door when the degs are hungry. Lasts ages.

But I am at a loss to understand why the OP feels the need to break her degs legs to make them heel? All you need is a posh old bird and some Muppets who know **** all about degs.

I usually fight the poor people for the reduced meat/offal in the supermarkets because its often cheaper and far better than dog food. 250g of liver for 50p? Happy dog and happy me for not paying for overpriced "dog food" The village butcher also puts aside bits of meat he cannot sell and I buy a 3 quid bag of it which does the dog well. A meat rich diet gives the dog the squits though, so I firm it up with kibble or most often, stuffing balls from the sunday dinner, wholemeal bread (home baked or ripped from the hands of peasants in Tesco reduced section) roasted potatoes, gravy etc....

Whichever dry you are using (I use James Wellbeloved), good idea to mix it with mince which is cheap as chips from Lidls / aldis etc. Its pretty lean stuff as well, well it should be with all that racing it used to do. both of mine get half a pack each a day so cost wise its pretty efficent.
I use the dry biscuit recommended and used by the local greyhound rescue center (£11.00 per 20 kg and each bag last 5-6 weeks). Like womblefruit says - mix it with some mince and offal (tesco chicken livers - about 80p a pack - is a good bet), add any leftover scraps from your tea (rice, pasta, noodles, gravy etc) for a bit of variety and there you - job's a good un.

My mrs picks up the mince from the reduced shelf at the supermarket, sticks it in the processor with the offal etc, minces it all down and puts it in a food tray in the freezer. Once it is frozen it gets cut into meal sized portions and kept in the freezer until required.

My greyhound it looking pretty good on this diet. Even if he does blag the occasional doughnut at work...
