Default what do you feed?

Since all of these recalls what are you currently feeding? Are you comfortable with the food you feed, and are you planning on switching. if so, what do you plan on switching to?

thanks! I am very curious

I am currently feeding a home made diet called "the natural diet"
it is a raw diet with cooked grains

if or when this dog food recall is straightened out i want to go to a high quality kibble

The dogs:
I am feeding mostly raw. We have a really good raw dog food maker here so I can get a premade with chicken or turkey (ground with bone in) it has some veg vacuum packed in perfect amounts for my two for one day.
I supplement with fish body oil and vit E and a joint supplement called Glyco-flex. Several times I week the dogs get raw chicken necks or backs.

I used to add kelp and also feed some organ but I am currently feeding kibble (Orijen) a couple days a week so I don't need the kelp or organ/offal right now.

I also feed canned tripe, raw eggs and Evangers 100% meat canned and sometimes leftovers from our meals if I have anything appropriate.I am a bit nervous about the Evangers canned but will probbaly still feed it

The cat:

Kitty gets Evo canned or a ground raw that contains ground bone and organ. I add fish oil, vit E and a some Pitcairn's Healthy Powder.

I have been meaning to get a www.betterdogcare.com consultation for the dogs and cats but haven't gotten around to it.

I am currently feeding Canidae Chicken and Rice to all of my dogs. I also mix in the canned canidae along with small amounts of fish oil or canola oil and a low dose of kelp daily. I am very comfortable with what I am feeding and don't plan on switching...

I am feeding Orijen to Tango, and California Natural to the others. Though my family and I are not really pleased with the California Natural at the moment (they aren't doing as well as we feel they should be), so we'll be having to find something else for them to eat which will be difficult, as Winston is extremely sensitive.

I am very comfortable with both products, and would continue to feed CalNat. if Winston wasn't so sensitive to different foods.

Canidae here - Besame is finishing off a bag of Wellness Fish & Potato that was on uber-sale a few weeks ago.

Ilsa's got a few weeks of homecooked waiting in the freezer though...

Maya is on Canidae All Life Stages and gets 1000mg of Vitamine C every day I am comfortable with this. I am considering giving her some hard boiled eggs as I have been told that they are very good for the dog's coat, but I dont know. I am just going to stick with what we are doing now for a while.
