When I started my reseearch and wanted to find out why it was such a "taboooo topic" with some people, I quickly realized not everyone is cut out for raw and I totally understand this.
My experience in switching my dogs over was less than stellar I can honestly say!!! I looked at all the google info and was so overwhelmed by the different ways and info that I ended up doing it the WRONG way, had way too much confidence in reading and then figuring I knew how to do it!!!
After a few rought days, I knew exactly why people started and then have the "BLOW OUT" experience and STOP really quickly.
Not all raw food is created equal
Not all raw food has it all
Not all raw food is best for your dog
Not all raw food can be balanced
and making it yourself!!! that is a whole other conversation, it can be very overwhelming.
SO, if you want to see the benefit of feeding Raw some things you will notice:
Slow the aging - of your dog and have 17 to 19 years of productive healthy years with your dog, compared to 10-13 years on a processed food
