Joining the ranks with Raw
Well we are biting the bullet and starting the Raw food. We tried the Taste of
the wild but Toby still has gas and stinky poo. He loved the food though and was
excited to eat his meals. I figured we have tried most of the top brands of dog food
while we had our Pekingese but not the Raw so why not give it a try with a new dog.
I've always been the kind of person people hate in the dog food store because I am always
searching for new and better food. I spent a long time in the store yesterday trying to make
up my mind.
I bought Instinct Raw Rabbit:
They said it would be easier on the stomach to get used to. We are starting out
slow to switch over. He had a bite of it last night. He ate it right up then
continued on eating his kibble. I hope to have him completely on it by next
We will be searching for knuckle bones this weekend. We have a femur but they
said its harder than the knuckle bone.
I am trying not to think of what all is in this food and bones. Its really
gross when you are not one that tries things. My dad would be so ashamed of his
daughter LOL Just talking about it in the store, I kept saying ewwwwwww!
I need to ask our vet about giving salmon oil in the food before we do it but I do
want to add that in.
Anyway, I really hope he does better on this stuff. I just want a happy dog
with no stinkies!
Should be an improvement for you...
It was for us but not all dogs the same. I do give Gracie some fish oil or flax oil with hers. Has helped keep things moving along!! He he!! Opposite of what used to happen! Have not had the UTI problem but gonna keep eye on that.
I agree....vets seem to just resist raw food anyway...
I think this is especially true in the USA. Maybe you do need to weight but Gracie probably would have never had colitis so much if we had switched her before 10 months. But waiting is not so bad...
