Dear Dogster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Dogster magazine, www.dogster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Is this truth or another fat lie from companies?
My chihuahua,p.j just turned 2 years old this month and i started thinking,if she was eating kibble,this is the period in which I would switch her to adult food....yet on raw nothing changes. Truth,all dogs need high protein and puppies need 10% of they're body weigh(I assume this is only on raw?) But when they become adults they will need less food but continue to need the same nutrients and high protein levels,yet on comercial food the older the animal,the less protein it needs,which is in fact a lie as old animals tend to need food high in protein and easy to digest.
Scary thing is that puppy food,protein wise is the best,but it also contains high calcium and others that can...or maybe thats another myth,be harmful to adults.
So,are commercial food compsnies just liying about each life stage needing this or that? Or just another lie to sell moer?.
Of course old dogs need more stuff for the joints and sometimes digestive aids but on raw this can be targeted with only the food. Puppies need a lot of protein and food intake which is present too on a natural diet.
What do you say about this? I wouls love to know more on the topic.
