if it was a normal spay she'd probably be back tonight, but probably because this was pyo related and she was sick prior, theyre going to keep her overnight

she's home now, was wagging her tail excited to see people though she mostly just wanted to lay down, she's on pain meds and anti-biotics now but she looks fine, just a bit cold so i have her covered up with a towel to keep warm, she wont eat dog food though, dry or canned, she will however eat canned pre-cooked fish, so is it fine to feed her canned salmon until she gets back more of an apetite before gradually reintroducing her back to her normal food?

this is kind of off topic, but this surgery absolutely drained me, if it wasnt for gift certificates received at christmas and a cash gift to pay for the surgery i wouldnt even have been able to afford the $200 i had to pay to the animal shelter group who covered the rest of the costs

the dogs still need food and about all i have left besides food for myself is a $50 walmart gift certificate, so i will have to buy food from there.. my other dog has what i believe is a food allergy to either beef or grains... so any opinions on walmarts pure balance grain free salmon and pea, or limited ingredient turkey and potato? which would be better for a dog with allergies?

Glad to hear she is back home and feeling better. I was thinking about her earlier wondering how she was doing.
As to the food, I don't feed kibble. I raw feed my dogs. It's great for dogs with allergies too. So much easier to know exactly what they are getting. For kibble there is this site, Dog Food Reviews and Ratings | Dog Food Advisor.

What's the sodium content in the canned salmon? If it's low or no sodium then it's fine to feed it for the next few days although it's not nutritionally complete. You could also try offering her a few eggs, either cooked or raw, and see if she'll eat it. It's a lot healthier for her then the salmon is.

Pure Balance isn't the best but it's better them most of the other brands found in the supermarket. I used to give my dog their canned food as a topper for his kibble, the only reason I stopped was because I suspect my dog has a sensitivity to chicken.

How cheap it is to feed raw depends on what meat cost in your area, and if you have a PMR co-op in the area. You'd need a variety of proteins, for example chicken, beef, pork, access to organs like liver, lungs, green tripe, kidneys, and a chest freezer since you have two medium sized dogs and you'll want to buy in bulk since it's cheaper. The formula most raw feeders follow is 80% muscle meat, 10% organ, and 10% bone. You can also buy prepackaged raw but it does get very expensive. Going with a co-op like I mentioned means that the members get together and purchase a large amount of meat then share it between the members so that it comes out cheaper since it's being bought in bulk.

There really aren't recipes for raw. 80% meat, 10% organs and 10% bone. I feed a mix of meats. Chicken, turkey, pork, beef, lamb, goat, veal, fish, rabbit, quail, duck, deer and any other meats I can get. Tonight was a mixed meal night, Freyja got a lamb bone and meat with some duck liver. Vegas and Shorty got a lamb bone with some beef liver, a bit of pork and a goat testicle. You want to feed about 2-3% of your dogs ideal body weight, but I find my dogs eat a bit less than that. Freyja only eats about a pound and a half a day, Shorty only needs around 8 ounces. I picked up a bunch of chicken today for .77/lb and beef for 3.00/lb along with some pork for just over a dollar per lb. I order the odder things online. Like green tripe, whole ground cow, duck heads and raw trachea. You would want to start with chicken. It's easy on most dogs. You'd feed that for a few weeks then add in a new protein. You want a little extra bone when you first start out, it will help keep their poop firm as their bodies adjust to the new food. I encourage people to switch to raw, but I'd probably wait until your girl is healed from her surgery.
