We mixed up our dogs food with the #MixedFeeding Challenge! Giveaway

Just over a month ago I posted about my dogs taking the Mixed feeding challenge. I knew changing their food would not be an easy task but I was willing to give it a try. The mixed feeding challenge is feeding your pet both wet and dry foods in their day to day diet. Since I have two dogs this was going to be interesting!

Mixed Feeding Infographic v2

My dogs were both mainly eating dry dog food until this challenge. I started adding a little wet to their diet each day as suggested. I quickly realized one was eating more wet than the other and not letting the other eat any. Then because he was eating way more than planned I had to take him outside more often to do his business. This created a bit of a challenge for me being the primary feeder. I would have to feed them their wet food separately to be able to monitor who was eating what. The dry food I just had down all day and filled up as needed. When you have more than one pet it is hard to know who is eating what and how much.

Since my dogs both loved the wet food it did not last long! After a week we found their stomach was okay with the changes and there were no issues. They just finished eating the Pedigree dry food as well.
