Great information ceduke!

I did a raw diet for a very short time for my babies, it can be a lot of work! Owners need to do a lot of research before they decide to do this. On the whole it sounds simple, get meat give to dog but a lot more goes into it. Ultimately I had to go back to kibble because it was to expensive for me. I got a kick out of watching them eat though.

Rhiannon glad to hear your baby is doing better. Remember when I decide to switch foods to do it gradually, day one 75% old food 25% new food, day two 50% old 50% new, day three 25% old 75% new. Then on day four you can give him all new food.

Also wet food isn't needed, dogs do tend to gobble it up more but if your feeding a quality kibble then that's all that's needed. Wet food can lead to teeth problems in a lot of dogs, not to mention stinky breath.

When picking a kibble meat should be the first ingredient, not a meal either actual meat.

One thing to keep in mind is dog feed/feeding is pretty controversial, what to feed/cook vs raw/how much meat:grains ratio, any veggies/grains/dairy. Do a lot of reading before you start in a "make your own" diet, maybe start with making your own treats first. Or just give some meat as a treat, I throw mine some beef chuncks once in a while. Also talk to your vet, mine wasn't much help help rather old fashioned with the attitude of "if they eat it then ok"

Here are some links that I used when I was making my decisions. http://www.rawfeddogs.net/  http://www.rawlearning.com/ http://www.rawfed.com/
