There are so many myths about raw feeding. You really do have to see it to believe it! It's an amazing amazing amazing diet, and I'll never feed kibble again. Not to mention, kibble is EXPENSIVE...when I was feeding Scarlett (great dane) Orijen, it cost me $180/mo. I switched to raw over a year ago and now I spend about $60/mo.
When I switched Scarlett to raw, my mom balked at me and said it was gross. Then she started thinking about her childhood border collie and remembered that she never ate kibble. My grandmother fed her raw meat, bones, and table scraps until the day she died at 17yo. Some days they wouldn't feed her at all because they'd find animal carcasses in the backyard and knew Tippie had killed them to eat. My grandmother was a woman ahead of her time and didn't believe in gimmicky store-bought foods when her own childhood dogs never ate them and lived long and healthy lives. There are some great kibble brands out there that I recommend to clients all the time, but IMO kibble is convenience food...not REAL food.
I have to say, the best thing about the raw diet is the POOP. I walk dogs during the day (up to 18 a day) and see all kinds of poop from all kinds of dogs. I'm proud to say that my 140lb dane has smaller, firmer, and non-stinky poops than a 15lb dog! You don't even have to pick it up - after a day in the sun, it turns to dust and disappears.
You couldn't pay me to go back to kibble!
