Dog food alternatives

My dog is really really low on dog food, and I'm really short on cash and unemployed. I learned that dogs can eat (rinsed) peas and corn and eggs. I was thinking about cooking him some eggs and peas/corn until I get a job and enough money to buy him real food. I'm not being misled, right?

      Yeah you can go to a groover store and get like 5 pounds of chicken hearts for a couple bucks. Same with necks/feet/other organs. Might have to look at more ethnic stores like for hispanics or asians, white people don't really eat that stuff.

    Your dog looks like my dog. She's an old girl now. Do you have a tractor supply near you? I'll just buy you dog food and you can pick it up.
    If you're cooking for your dog... sweet potato, brown rice, boiled/steamed chicken, peas, carrots, etc. No corn

      You don't have to buy nothing for us. We're good man, thanks.

      I've got this canned pumpkin that ik pretty sure is all mashed up. That's gonna work too, right? Another anon said peas would lead to heart issues. Is he right?

        Pumpkin is fine, but you're going to need a lot of protein, mix some hardboiled eggs in

        FDA is researching but preliminary evidence suggests link between pulses (peas, lentils, etc) and DCM (heart condition), it's why a lot of grain free foods aren't selling anymore

          Pulses used as a major protein source may cause dcm by blocking the absorption of certain nutrients.

          Feeding your dog a few peas is fine.

    Will it survive on it? yes. Will it be the best thing long term? no. Get some protein in there. Beans would be fine, meat would be better. Also, rice, get a frick ton of rice. Rice is a great filler and both you and the dog can eat it. If things get bad enough, roadkill well done. Some times you can't be picky and eat/feed your family/pets.

    Best of luck.

    Dogs have been fed grains for centuries so you can soak some bread in grease and give him some meat and he ought to be good

      you know what amerifats do to dogs that nobody buys?

      they fricking kill them, and then fill that space at the shelter with another fricking subcanine mutant shitbull and continue to fill the world with more of those worthless vermin while propagandizing to spread sympathy for the fricking rats, when they should be blowing their brains out upon entry so actual dogs can get help instead.

      better a poorgay keep a real dog alive than that dog die and be replaced with a SHITbull AKA police dept. target practice.

    I just feed him my leftovers. Or white/brown rice with cheese, tuna/salmon, and maybe pumpkin. I mix it all up, it looks like vomit but he loves it. Very easy to get a hand on rice canned fish and canned pumpkin + a 1lb of shredded or cubed cheese.

      I have a lot of canned goods and eggs to spare. I've got canned pumpkin too. Could I mix that, eggs, and maybe some rice for him?

        Yeah just give the canned foods a rinse before serving. I don't know if dogs can tolerate the amount of sodium in canned food as people do.

          Yeah, I've been rincing all the can goods I've given him. Thanks

    How long are you planning on keeping your dog on this diet? That's going to be a factor as well

    if you are not actually going to research home cooking a complete dog food, just stick with a cheap commercial one. it may not be the best but it's likely miles ahead of anything you can make with table scraps. pic related, 10kgs for 8€. a common cheap but ok brand food is Josera.

    Beg your local butcher for scraps of lean meat, and maybe some rib bones.

    Please check out a food bank, sometimes they also provide dog food as well

    Eggs are good, but corn and peas shouldn't make up a significant portion of the diet

    Pea based diet long term can lead to heart problems, corn can lead to gastrointestinal issues

    Ask around your local pet shops (not big box stores like petco/petsmart), most have pet food donation programs and provide free donated food to people that can't afford it like you

      Doesn't he also need veggies or something for other nutrients? What can't I substitute peas and corn with?

        Caviar, truffles, quinoa. Organ meat has much vitamins.

        If you don't know such a basic question you should absolutely not make up a diet for your dog. It is a very complex subject and requires a lot of research and calculations if you don't want to cause deficiencies.

          At this point I don't have a choice. My local food bank does have dog food but it's gonna be a while before I get there

            don't get a dog if you're tight on cash.

            Either way, take it out to hunt squirrels or rats in the park or put it out of its misery. Dont feed it vegetables

      fyi if you feed corn and peas, make sure you make them up a little so he doesn't eat them whole and not absorb any of the nutrition
