Pooches: Raw Food Diet
Everyone from our vet to the pet store owners have been telling us about the benefits of a raw food diet. So we start Ms. M and Mr. B on the raw food diet from Nature's Variety. We have been planning on getting them onto a raw food diet, but we were waiting until we were on break, so if they had any issues we could take them outside immediately. Both Ms. M and Mr. B responded very well to the diet. Neither had any digestive issues and it seems like their waste is smaller and more solid. We feed them about 8 oz of the raw food diet in the morning and they get a cup and a half of their normal dried food in the evening. Nature's Variety offers the chubs which saves us a bit of money. It comes out to about $36 for two weeks of breakfast food for 2 dogs. All you have to do is cut the chubs into appropriate portions.
