So we figured we've gotta at least try the raw or cooked diet to see if its the storage mites that are doing it!

I settled on Farm Fresh Pet foods http://www.farmfreshpet.com . They have both a line of raw, and a line of "low heat cooked" flavors. I went with the low heat cooked versions because Baxter did horribly on raw. I assume it was the bacterial overload. I wasn't interested in "forcing" him to get used to it by putting him through weeks/months of diarrheah and stomach upset. That's what a lot of raw people told me to do. "Get him used to it". And "Thats normal". No thanks. the cooked line of products they have is absolutely perfect, and he did not even need a 10 day "ramping up" phase. He went full steam on it the first night, large quantity, and had perfect poop the next morning, for the first time in months. Highly recommend.
