Is it unhealthy to feed a dog on processed/sandwich meat every day (mixed in with dry dog food)?

Well, think about it, would you eat processed sandwich meat everyday? I think not.
Gotta start thinking about what we put into our beloved pets stomachs.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... is this a trick question? heh. I eat sandwiches just about everyday for lunch... am I going to die? :eek: hehe

Or maybe I'm thinking of something different when you say processed sandwich meat..

Uhhhh, I'm so sorry to say this, Postal, but, yes, you ARE going to die. Waaay too many sandwiches. Better get your affairs in order, write up that Will, and make sure there's plenty of chicken leg quarters for Brian. My crystal ball is never mistaken, I'm so sorry to be the bearer of sad news.

Thank you for your comment. I make sandwiches for my husband everyday with processed meat and he's very happy about that. Personally though, I don't enjoy the stuff.

Would you like to suggest an alternative I could add to my dog's dry food in order to 'entice' him?

Why don't you try real, fresh meat added to your dog's food instead? Like when you grill steaks or bake chicken for your own dinner, set aside an un-spiced portion for your dog and mix that in instead.

There is a lot of salt in processed sandwich meats and other bad stuff but I can't remember what the bad stuff is. I used to know. I know there are practically no nutrients in it.

Maxwell's diet is about 10% kibble... little breakfast to get his metabolism going.

Every couple of days, I boil some chicken, beef, turkey, whatever and chop it up and put it in his kibble.

Boiled meat, that's it. No seasoning, no salt, nothing.

Lunch meat is way too salty for our dogs to eat every day. It's also often times seasoned, which can cause stomach upset.

I think if most of us knew what went into lunch meat, we wouldn't eat it.

This is what I do 90% of the time with my dogs. When I have any sweet potatoes left from my dinner, the dogs just love them.

Here's my 2 cents worth. I believe that processed meat isn't good for anyone if you over do it. Everything in moderation! However, that being said if you feed your dog processed meat once in a great while (as I do) it becomes a treat and I don't believe it will have any long term effect on them. The key is moderation. Now if my husband would only listen when it comes to bologne, ha, ha, he will eat that anywhere, any place and any which way -- he LOVES bologne. He even fries it (and I gotta say, it smells wonderful fried and I'm tempted but I don't eat it cuz I don't like bologne). Oh, well, so much for moderation... ha, ha. :biggrin:

Men just blame it on the women :tongue:
Sounds like something my husband would say!!! :biggrin: Speaking of growing up on bologne, which I did as well... and still don't like it but we also had hamhocks and beans. I love that meal and most would find it awful. You do what you have to do. And, I haven't eaten that or thought about that in over 30 years. Wow, now I'm going to have to "MAYBE" make some... ha, ha.

And my FAVORITE meal (since I was a kid) is cutting up some hot dogs into some pork and beans. Good ol beanie weenies :) Soul food that is.
