I try to always have available a small amount of dry ground dog, cat or fish food. Either daily or a few times a week I try to remember to give them a small piece of fruit or vegetable. I only give skinned fruits and vegetables from the grocery store for fear of pesticides (I've had large die offs a few times and I'm not sure if it was from grocery store greens), and greens and berries from my garden. From the grocery store peeled: banana, apple, pear, orange, sweet potato, carrot. From my garden: kale, lettuce, pansie flowers, nasturtium flowers, dandelion flowers & berries.
