Doggies and hooman food revisited

Pit Bull
Does Doobie look like a wolf? Srsly.

Despite what the premium pet food brands tell you, your dog is not a wolf and he doesn't need to eat like a wolf. A dog can live quite well on human food, with a few exceptions, including chocolate and onions. Please read about them on the Humane Society site.

It goes without saying that you should never, EVER give hooman drugs to a pet unless your vet gives you the ok. Something as harmless as aspirin can be a killer!

There are a number of good books on making nommy homemade foods for dogs (and cats). Dr. Pitcairn's New Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats explains the dietary needs of dogs and cats, and gives recipes for healthful meals you can make in batches. The book even has recipes for supplements you can spoon onto commercial dog or cat foods to replace nutrients lost in the canning process.
