In all seriousness, have you tried feeding the dog on a schedule? That way he eats when the food is put in front of him and you wont have to worry about the kittens trying to eat it and possibly choking.
Also, Pedigree isnt a very good food, and can lead to complication because its mostly corn. Purina One is also available at supermarkets. I personally feed Kirklands Super Premium Dog Food, its 18 dollars for a 40lb bag at Costco
Fosters is free feed for the time being, the kittens are on a schedule / and my animals at my house are on a schedule- never free fed. Fosters is free feed because when we adopted him back in May, he was extremly emaciated and skinny- he just looked aweful. So since then we've been trying to gradually put some weight on him. And it has worked lovely so far. As far as his food dish goes, now that the kittens have figured out it was there, i take it up before they are let out of their cages so they can't get ahold of it anymore. / As far as Pedigree goes- i like pedigree large breed vs. store brand ingredient wise, also though i don't have a membership to Costco to check out the kirklands brand (that's their house brand- but I LOVE their prices on baby wipes and diapers- we used to get them all the time when I was a nanny and the Kirkland brand was just as good as the rest). / We have tried several different foods with fosters- some of the nice expensive premuim diets- which he refused to eat
, purina, iam, and pedigree...so far, pedigree large breed is the only thing he will eat- so until he gets some good weight on him, we aren't planning on trying to switch him again only to watch him starve himself./ We asked the vet about it last time we took him in, and he said that for now, if he'll eat it, go ahead and feed it to him- his coat is really glossy, healthy teeth, healthy overall....so for now it works.
