:wink:

I have now gotten over the raw thing took me a while, but I'm good with it. My best friend is a vet. She doesn't understand. Thinks my dog will die soon.:rolleyes:

So...does this mean that you are feeding raw or not?

Most vets out there think that raw fed dogs will die from it LOL

I'd be interested in knowing what your vet's arguments are. Is she at all swayed by the fact that your dog is doing so much better with his allergies? Do tell!

working

I did check out your dog she looked great. Thats what my lab look like but worse.
I was very worried about the raw, my friend the vet said she was very against it because of bacteria. She just doesn't mention it anymore, but she seems to be watching my dogs progress. But I think if you are careful you shouldn't have any problems. I mean look at people, we eat meat everyday and other foods.

My dog also appears to have something called leaky gut? Too much yeast in her system.

I don't have access to much where I live so I have found a small store that carries and encourages raw. I feed Bravo and Primal mixes and or grinds thats what I can get my hands on. I have had some friends give me deer, elk.

I shy away from and fowl because my dog retrieve ducks and I don't want them to get confused.

Is that a question or a statement?

If its a question - No. Feeding a properly put together is not dangerous. In fact it is one of the best ways to feed your companion carnivore. And since this a rawfeeding section, all will agree. If you looking for more info, this site has a wealth of information. There are also many yahoo raw feeding lists that have many members that can provide you a ton of info and references.

If its a statement, then I think you may be on the wrong place. Rawfeeding is fantastic and all my animals (2 dogs and 4 cats) have done exceptionally well.

I didn't say I thought it was bad, I was advised not to do it by my vet, but I did it anyway and am glad. I think it is alot better for the dog and makes sense. :smile:

Khan is doing one thousand times better since he has been eating "real food" and not kibble.
No more yeast build-up in one of his ears, no more cow pie poops, no more itchiness, and best of all he's gained 11lbs in one month!! He is actually absorbing the nutrients from his food, instead of pooping them out! A very important thing when you are a growing 7 month old puppy!

Thanks

Thanks for the replies I have gotten, I think at this time I need encoragement my dog is going through a very bad time and my vet doesn't agree with me doing what I'm doing. I think I just want to try to make my dog healthy. She has a long road ahead and alot of work on my part.

How do you buy whole rabbits? And do they come with hair. And how do the dogs or cats get their proper needs?

I'm sure everyone has answered these questions before so anyone with imput I thank you in advance.:redface::confused:

You need to read the info in RFD's signature it will give you lots of info on feeding a complete diet, then come ask more questions. I believe you'll find a website that was mentioned recently for rabbits HARE TODAY something like that in the raw feeding threads.

Don't know what RFD is, but today my dog has a rash all over her entire stomach area, don't know if this is yeast or what to treat with. I know my vet will inject antibiotics if I take her there. She is overwhelmed with them different kinds for over six months. Thats why I am feeding raw I don't think anyone could tell me what is wrong with the dog she has been treated with so many steroids and so much junk and immune suppresants money spent. I don't know if this is normal.

I think she is overwhelmed with yeast but no one can help or give advice vets only want to give shots and antibiotics. I don't think they know. I think she is overrun with drugs???:confused:

OMG, that's terrible! I hope that you find the same results I have found with Khan after switching off kibble. It only took about a week for the yeast in his ear to start to clear up, after 6 weeks both ears look amazing!
RFD is short for RawFedDogs.
He has a link on his signature that whiteleo was referring to.
Good luck, and hopefully she starts to feel better FAST!

Just be patient, keep it up with feeding raw.
Some dogs have a detox period that can be pretty rough.
Hang in there.

This is the link they're talking about:
