Are cheerios good for dogs


Are cheerios good for dogs' digestion?

I do not understand why so many of my dog friends keep telling me I must stop feeding my dogs "dried" dog food.

My dog, K-Man has always been a very picky eater, and I thought it would be better to be feeding him a "complete" meal rather than the dry food I have been using.

When I have gone to the pet store to buy dog food, they always sell the "complete" kind which really consists of just ground beef or meat mixed with some kind of binder, then rolled into balls and put in a can. I know it is not real food, but I thought it would be easier for my dog to eat than the really dry food. My dog has been eating this kind of food since he was a puppy, but he is now 8 years old.

I just want to know what others think about this kind of food, and if the "wet" food is much better. And is there a chance my dog would get constipated if I went back to feeding him the dry food I have been using?

Oh, and I don't know if I mentioned this before, but my dog likes to drink the water that comes out of the spigot in our house, and so I try to keep the water in the fridge in order for him to be able to drink more water.

I agree with the others. I feed my dogs dog food from the pet store but as for those little meat balls I don't know what they are trying to do. My dog is on the opposite end of the spectrum from K-Man and actually tries to eat the binder. He would not touch the dry dog food either and has been drinking the canned stuff. The binder seems to have no effect on him anyway.

The binder is pretty useless unless it is the only type of food that the dog can handle. In my case I give him the wet food that I bought at the store. He really likes it and has never shown any signs of constipation with it. If the dog is a hard eater, or refuses most other food, a binder is no help at all. It doesn't work for me and my dog, but maybe it works for others.

Yep, that's the problem. He used to have real food, only now it's these weird meat balls that he refuses. He would eat all kinds of dog food if he could. He has been drinking the wet food that I buy at the store for the past few months. I don't think the binder has anything to do with it. I don't think it will help with him refusing anything else. He will eat the stuff they give him. I'm going to ask my vet to test his stomach for other causes. I would really like to know what's causing this. I'm starting to wonder if I will ever get him to eat regular food agn.

We've been giving him the wet food for two months now. I think he finally made the connection between this food and treats and it's making him sick. He has a ton of problems. His stomach has always been a mess, and he's also always bloated. We don't know why. The vet sd it's not a kidney problem because he doesn't have any signs of kidney flure. He's never been an easy patient. I don't think we have a real diagnosis. I think his stomach will never heal. I think his digestive tract will never be the same. I'm starting to think we're going to have to take him to a vet for treatment.

Dawg, I just had to post about my dogs...My first dog was a German Shepherd I got when I was about 12 from my grandmother. She took her dog to the vet to get it spayed, they gave her the bill, and she sd no way, he was only 12. At that time she got spayed and the dog was not spayed...it died 6 months later, she sd she got a sick feeling and it was too late for it to be treated. Her grandmother had a little dog, she was only about 4 at the time...she had him for 12 years and had a huge heart problem and she had to have a transplant...that's when she got the idea to get the spay done on her dog...the dog is still with her, she found a very good breeder, bought her dog, pd for the spay, and brought her home, her dog only lived for another 3-4 months, I never knew how much her dog meant to her...I never could understand what she meant when she told me she loved her dog...I still think about it...
