My daughter and Granddaughters are coming from Guam in June for a couple months and we plan on taking some trips. I normal put a little pumpkin in Miss Shays food in the morning but on the trips I don’t want to take cans. Can I purchase these for her? The pouches just seem easier for travel. Anything I should be watching for ingredient wise ? Thanks.

In general, you want to be on the look out for 1) food high in sodium, 2) food high in sugar, 3) food high in fat, 4) any food on a "dogs can not eat list" on Google.

That baby food looks clean to me. You can always give Miss Shay some of that baby food before you travel so you can see how she and her stomach will react.

It looks like this particular formula has more than three times the sugar vs. what you’re currently feeding Shay.

Obviously you wouldn’t give her the whole pouch at once, but all that sugar could add up quickly and cause tummy upset or worse. And travel can already cause digestive issues.

I often give Winnie baby food from pouches as a treat. I wouldn't give her the whole pouch just a blob but they come in lots of nice flavours. I only buy those that have minimal ingredients and no salt or sugar or anything undesirable. Pure and natural puree only.

I didn’t think of doing that. I guess I really should have. Thank You

When I look for others I’ll check more than ingredients. I didn’t even think of sugars. Thank You.

That’s what we want it for. Just a little something, something for the top. Thank You.

Always want to check that human safe but dog poison xylitol is not in the ingredient list. I can't imagine it would be in baby or toddler puree, but it's still worth checking for in any prepared food sold for humans before giving to a dog.

Thank You I couldn’t remember the full spelling just that it started with an X.
