    I know wafcol used to do a vegetarian food.

    Personally i wouldnt inflict my morals onto my dogs. They are omnivores, and unless there is a health reason, then they should be a fed an appropriate diet.

    Oh i thought you meant you wanted them to be vegetarian.

    Mine eat all sorts of fruit and veg. Alfie will force lettuce down him if hes desperate. They mainly get, carrot, apple (no pips/core) a bit of banana, and the odd lick of mango.

    When Cheeko got fed meat he loved asda smart price frozen veg mixed in his food. Was cheap and filled him up. We've managed to get him onto hard food now but he does steal the odd carrot, sweetcorn and bits of parsley from the guinea pigs at times. He eats anything just about.. We tried the tripe when we were at dog training and one weekend when mum was cooking it all I had a stomach bug and needless to say we never bought it again!

    My dogs love a bit of veg with their dry dog food, i also put down the water the veg was cooked in (once it has cooled) as they love that too and its good for them with all the viamins that have come out of the veg. They also like freshly cut carrot pieces as a treat too.

    I never thought of putting veg into his hard food! I'd give it a try but within the next few weeks I'm taking him off of Bakers so I don't want to make too many changes.
