Raw Diet (Long Read)

Well it's been just over a month and I thought I would give you guys some feedback about my experience thus far with this diet.

It all started one day when we were at a dog park and I seen another pitbull, us pitbull owners stick together..lol. I started talking with the owner and he mentioned his dog was on the Raw Food Diet. I really didn't understand what it was at first so he explained. I was very interested and me being me went home and jumped on the internet and did a ton of reading, which did lead me to this site.

I was very impressed from what I found out. I couldn't believe I have never heard of this diet before. It was totally worth the weeks worth of reading. So I went into a local food food store and she just happened to be a huge believer in it and sold the food I would need. After speaking with her for awhile I was totally convinced, not that I wasn't already but ahe really opened my eyes.

So, to start off about the dogs. Zoe my female was and is always in great shape. Very active and playful. Now my male is another story. When we first got him he was very fat, out of shape and not active at all, and he was a puppy, very hard to believe but true.

So now that you have some what of a background on my puppies here is what is going on with them now. They are doing GREAT!!!. I am so happy that I came accross this diet. Zoe, is still her wonderful, playful self. She's is filling out and is looking great. Zeus is a completely different dog now. He has slimmed down to his idea weight. Has a ton of energy and is very playful now. I can't stress enough how great this diet has been for them. I would highly reccommend this diet to everyone.

So now that my dogs are of age I have enrolled them in puppy day care twice a week, more for socializing then anything. They are attending puppy classes now to. So all in all I just wanted to let you guys know how it's been going with us and the diet. I will keep posting progress or any troubles I come accross.

I'm starting to feed Phoebe more whole chickens, turkeys and ducks, with a few livers and kidneys in there to achieve a reliable 80% meat, 10% bone 10% organ ratio. If you want to include chicken backs and turkey neck because they are so cheap, you can include beef heart as a cheap source of muscle meat to get closer to 80-10-10. It works for us.
