It took me many, many years to decide to switch to a completely raw diet for my animals.
I, like many, believed that feeding quality dog food was the best I could do for my dogs. And,
they did not bad... I had good coat, seemingly healthy animals; bright eyed and bushy tailed... I always have added raw meat
to the diet, because, in my heart, I thought they needed a lot more than just dog food. I thought there was too much grain
and not enough meat.
Then, the dog food company I had dealt with for over two years, changed their product, and
my dogs fell to pieces. I could not maintain weight on my guys, not even on my 'fatties'. The coats suffered. I had a litter
of two puppies-totally unheard of with my guys. And those pups were the skinniest pups I have ever had! Shortly after, the
big dog food recalls of last year(2007). That did it, I
switched straight over to an all raw diet.
I had been 'studying' raw diets for years, just thought it was too much work! I was wrong!
I feed a prey model raw diet, and my dogs have NEVER been better! So, over a whole year into no kibble. I can't believe I
didn't take the leap years ago! And I switched everyone, cold turkey.
