    Default what do you feed your cav on?

    Just wondering as i want to make sure Lolas getting all she needs.
    Were still going on what the breeder recommended.
    She was on Eukanuba but i weaned her off that and onto Royal Canin after the vet recommended it.

    Then i just jazz it up a bit with either,Tuna,Cheese,or some chicken on top.

    But i was just wondering what others feed their cavs?

    Bless her shes doing fine and growing but it must get boring eating the same old stuff.

    Hi Lola,

    My boys are on Royal Canin too and I too jazz it up with a bit of chicken sardines, tripe, cheese and the soup detailed in Caring for you cavalier. I alternate most days so thats its something different

    I started Lily on Science Diet, that the Vet and breeder both recommended, but I didn't like it, too many fillers. I changed Lily to puppy RC a couple of weeks after we got her, and she loves it and has done well on it. I am now changing her to adult RC at 5 mos old.

    Shay,

    I'm feeding Oakley RC Mini Junior - it says to feed it up to 10 months? I was thinking maybe I'd change over around 7-8 months to Mini Adult - have you beed advised to change Lily sooner ( I'm just wondering if i should change sooner too?)

    After reading some of Karlin's posts and some others, they say you really don't need to feed puppy food, because sometimes they grow too fast. I thought this was the case with Lily. So at 5 mos (last week) I decided to switch to adult, but there were so many choices, I didn't know which to buy, I think Karlin and Cathy said RC adult 22 I think. I have to go back and look at the thread before I go to the store this weekend. Post is titled "Question about Food" posted by me last Sun or Mon I believe, if you want to read it.

    I have a question too, when you give special stuff in their food, does it change the consistency of their poop. Lily's poop is very firm and she is only going 2 to 3X per day. I wonder if adding stuff changes this. I want to start adding stuff. Do they not want to eat just plain kibble anymore after you add stuff?

    Hi Shay,Lola wont touch it if its just plain. She gives me a right dirty look as of to say "is that it".

    Because shes always had toppings i cant answer the poop question.
    But lolas is fine and firm too.
    Touch wood shes never had runny poop.

    I would think there may be a slight change but nothing drastic unless it doesnt sgree with her.

    Just try a tiny sprinkle of topping and increase it.

    I feed royal canin mini light. I don't add anything to it because mine seem to get very soft poop when they eat anything out of the ordinary especially pippin! I give them bonio mint biscuits ,half each, as a mid-day treat now and again. They get 3/4 of a cup of food in the evening and 1/2 a cup in the morning. They don't seem to be bored with it and get excited every mealtime.

    Then again they'd eat anything!
