DOG CHOW???
« on: February 20, 2015, 02:01:57 PM »
Okay, I'm back posting stuff and asking questions. This question is about something I read on the website about Dog Chow? :eatnow:

Diet: various fruit and vegetables; variable seed mix, in spring/summer sprouted food; fresh branches with buds; regular mineral supplements; rearing food or dog chow, soft or cottage cheese before and during breeding period.


Um, is this a typo or correct? I've never heard of feeding a parrot dog chow. Read this on the diet page of the BH Pionus. Just want to clarify I'm reading this right and why would you feed dog chow and what is it. LOL

You read this in the context of companion birds? Where was this?

I know this is an old post, but I thought I'd comment anyways.

I've heard of dog chow being used in short term/emergency situations when there are no other foods available. Never heard of it being used as breeding food though. That's a first for me!

The salt would be very toxic to the kidneys, and I have never heard of this. How strange.

I'm thinking this was somehow printed as someone's opinion, or what 'they' do and feel is a good idea, not that it's fact.  :( It's called Dog Chow for a reason, cause it's specially formulated and balanced for dogs!  :icon_mrgreen:
