Raw vs. Kibble debate

Food, Fitness and how to keep them healthy.

Postby babyreba » May 23rd, 2006, 7:13 pm

i agree that the point of this thread has flown out the window . . . i don't think there is a person on this thread who doesn't care for their dogs or who isn't worthy of having them.

i may not totally agree with everything everyone says/does, but i think some of this has gotten way personal.

You can debate over the Kirkland's all you want. I welcome it in fact. I would like to see information about it.

But when it suddenly becomes "well I wouldn't have that many dogs if I had to feed them crap like you are", and then insinuating that we wouldn't provide vet care if needed, THAT is an attack...


~Lindsay~


I didn;t insinuate ANY thing, i asked you a freaking question. YOU are the one who said you could not AFFORD to feed better food, what is one to think if you don;t have an extra $20 a month for dog food. :|

And....my dogs are not going to go without just so I can bring another dog into my home It's all about knowing your limits, I know mine.

But here's the difference, WE never said your animals were suffering.

We pointed out risks associated with raw diets, provided links to them, etc. At no point did we say you guys were killing your dogs and they would be better off if you didn't have them.

See the difference?


~Lindsay~


WE never said that either........don't put words in mouths. Show me....word for word...exactly where that was said. Not what YOU think was said, what was said.

Here you are:

cheekymunkee wrote:Nope, sorry. I refuse to have more animals than I can afford to feed a healthy diet to. If it means I can only have one dog in order to feed it the best food possible, then I only have one dog.

cheekymunkee wrote:Like I already said, if I cannot afford to feed my dogs a good diet I do not need to have them. Feeding crap just so I can have more animas is not acceptable to me. Same thing with kids, if I cannot afford them I refuse to have them, that is why I only have 1. Well, that isn't the ONLT reason but it is one of the major ones.

cheekymunkee wrote:That's what I am saying. What if your dogs get sick? if you can't feed them decent food how can you take them to the vet?

SisMorphine wrote:I guess when I do things I make sure they are done right. I don't believe in pulling a dog from a shelter and having it eat crap and just sit around while being fostered. I believe in feeding that dog the highest quality kibble and making sure that dog has a buttload of training and socialization because that is the real responsibility of a foster home . . . not just to be a space away from a shelter.



Thank you pitbullmamaliz and babyreba. I was starting to wonder if I was in an alternate universe or something... :rolleyes2:


This thread was educational and civil until msvette2u and I were jumped on. I'm done with it now. It's been fun. Ciao.

AGAIN.....

Where does it say this?

We pointed out risks associated with raw diets, provided links to them, etc. At no point did we say you guys were killing your dogs and they would be better off if you didn't have them.



:| All I see are Sis & I saying that "I" cannot. NO where did we say that you should give up your dogs, no where did we say you are killing your dogs. I don't know where you see that but you are not seeing what was written. You can leave the thread if you want but you still have not proven that was ever said on this thread.

I still dont see where you were jumped on. We said that WE do not keep animals if we cannot afford to feed them the best. We all just have very different priorities and different values. :|

Oh wait... :rolleyes2:
