    DefaultCalling all RAW feeders!

    I hate to see this section remain empty. If this is going to be home, lets get started and introduce ourselves here. I am not a raw feeder (only in my dreams), but I do feed a low-carbohydrate food, which I believe would be more "natural" for dogs. I feed Skippy and Emilu Innova Evo Large Bites and they are doing great on it - nice coats, nice poops, etc. So anyone feeding or interested in feeding RAW - lets get this section started

    Great idea! I love high protein, grain free kibbles for a healthier alternative for our beloved pets. Casey has been fed the raw diet for about 2 months now and she LOVES her food. Raw feeding is wonderful in my opinion.

    This time round I've rawfed Luna since april.

    Last time I rawfed, it was for about 2 years.

    This time I think we've found a perfect solution, and she's losing weight as planned.

    I've been feeding raw to my guys for just one year, in April.... glad I made the switch. It's not as hard or as expensive as I once thought.

    Ender has been all RAW for most of his 3 years... the first year we did a lot of juggling around with different kibbles and stuff and his system just couldn't take them... so we finally switched to RAW (I can't remember how old he was at the time... maybe 6-9 months old?) and he's been happy and healthy ever since.

    Since he was staying with me, we did try a kibble... Wellness CORE (GRAIN FREE)... which he has done really well on (solid good poop). He does half RAW, half kibble at the moment.

    Eric and I were really glad to finally find a kibble he could go on in case he needed to (like if he was staying for an extended time with someone who couldn't feed RAW or for traveling etc.)

    My crew eats a combination of Innova Evo Large Bites (usually Chicken) and Raw foods usually Liver, Hearts & Gizzards (which are Magnum's very favorite!!) Chicken thighs, Jack Mackral, Sardines, Natur's Variety patties.

    I do not feed bones. I've not been successful doing it (unless they are ground up as in the Natur's Variety patties) Ruger consistantly throws up bones so I won't feed them as part of his diet.

    I supplement with Glucosamine/Condrotin/MSM & feed a lot of green beans.

    My boys have been raw fed for just over 1 year now. I'm so glad I made the switch. They have all lost weight and 2 of them are just about at their "goal" weights. Hunter has lost 18 lbs. over the past year. Yogi has dropped 11. Chance - well, he's only dropped 5. I'm not sure why his weight loss hasn't been as large as his brothers. I've cut his food down quite a bit, but I'm afraid to go lower - I don't want to starve him.

    I've been feeding raw for about twelve years now. Hah, I'm one of the old Billinghurst-ites but I've progressed to more of a prey model type of diet. Raised lots of litters and puppies on it with outstanding results.
