    Default Gucci 1 year b day present

    I after much research and many bags of dog food. I have decided to put all three dogs on raw diet. Gu.cci has interdigital cysts. Diamond has what I think is a yeast infection. Either way it's a rash allergy something. Gucci will be a year on Tuesday this will be a gift of better health. I think after reading I am starting with chicken backs and leg quarters. I will post my outcome. Any advice is very welcomed. Thank you.

    Congratulations! I wish you all the best with your new diet for the Bullies. I just switched Maximus to a Frozen Raw Diet (Nature's Variety), and he loves it !
    I switched his diet for the exact same reasons as you ----- allergies, interdigital cysts, skin problems, yeast infections, ear infections, etc., etc., etc. ......
    and I'm hoping he will begin to feel and look better. So far it is going very well, and I wish you much success! Keep us all posted on how things are going !

    great news you are starting raw,do all the research you can,take it very slowly ,dont panic if your dogs regurgitate they are not chocking lol,feed size apropriate bone and only uncooked soft bone ie chicken or pork to start with,keep to 1 protien say chicken ,dont add organs until your dogs are used to raw unless you enjoy masses of poop!!or if your dog are like my dog and they have a cast iron stomache lol,i wouldnt worry too much about supplements either they will be getting all they need on the raw especially when you start feeding the red meats,i do supplement with sulpher tablets ,vit c and a seed mix ,as ive been raw feeding for 9 months and annies itching was still as bad ,i know that raw will only clear up food allergy and not envioremental ,however after months of investigating ,trying everything in the book to cure this itching i have come to the conclusion that its related to me returning to work ,she itches when excited,going for a poop ,new places ,waiting for her meals ,something on tv she likes lol weirdo dog!!!,but she does have some dandruff which i cannot clear so this is the reason for the above supplements,raw is the best diet,its cheap,easy to prepare and so good to watch your dog eat what dogs are supposed to eat ,good luck ,i know you will do great keep us posted,karen

    Good for you! You should feel good about the decision you made. I have three dogs and they all love it. @savemejeebus probably gave you the same sites I would have. She is a great resource as is @karenben. Good luck and never, ever, feel silly about posting questions!

    I'm confused? Are you switching to BARF (Premade) or Prey Model Raw?

    I feed Prey Model. Thanks Gator for helping me switch you don't even know you helped! Never looking back.

    Fantastic site to look at! http://rawfed.com/myths/index.html
