mixing food

I went to the vet a few days ago and when i asked him what to feed my puppy he said feed him soft dog food and hard mixed.
Is that a good idea?

I have done this before. My dogs seemed to like it. They sort of got the best of both worlds.

sure, but how old is your pup? Made my boy a bit picky, I add Pumpkin Puree now instead of wet food. Good for loose or hard poops. keeps them regular and adds a bit of wet and flavor. Hard kibbles are best for teeth cleaning and gums maintenance.

I refuse to feed soft food, bunch of crap in it. I have yet to find a decent one. I think it makes a dog picky and there are better options if you need to go that route. What is the reason for adding soft food? if the dog can not chew it you are better off soaking kibble. if you just want to add something I would go with pumpkin, yogurt, or cottage cheese although none of those in large amounts. Honestly if you have to beef up food to get them to eat they get used to it and it really makes the picky eaters worse then before. No harm in putting food down if the dog wont eat it take it away till the next meal time, they may miss a couple meals but will eat when they get hungry enough and they will learn to eat when offered. I went through a picky eater with one of mine.

Unfortunately I have a picky eater I feed him Nutro Naturals dry and canned mixed. The canned stuff is hard to find though I have to special order it. At least where I'm from. It's a pain in the arse though. If I let run out before more comes in he refuses to eat. Thank god my other dogs all just eat what they are given lol. It gets expensive! The canned food is $1.99 a can.

He is 13 weeks now, the vet said since most dog food has grain in it it would be best to go ahead and mix the food being that dogs descend for wolves. it would be only right

I don't feed soft food at all, bad on their teeth. And I only feed grain free for any dog, even my foster dog who I get food for from the rescue. My boy is on Acana Wild Prairie and has no teeth, skin, smell, coat, or poop issues any longer.

blah.... that vet is most likely trying to push THEIR dog food that they get endorsements from on you....

im with the mass on this one... if u start adding wet dog food, ur just going to create a picky eater, and he/she will eventually eat all the wet and leave the kibble in the bowl (my inlaws dogs do this)....

if u want to soften the food for their teeth (wich is okay) i say put some warm water in the kibble, and let it sit for a few min then serve....

but to each their own...

Soft food is most likely garbage and will cause diarreah! Stick to the hard kibble its better for their teeth and no loose poop. Or give em the best and go RAW....

Yes warm water is best... It even lets the food aroma out and will make them want it more.
