I have two dogs, an adult lab and my hav puppy. The lab has always been on a raw diet, in part because our previous lab died at 5 1/2 from liver failure (my theory was over-vac etc, I am still pretty bitter about the whole thing). We use a combination of commercial raw such as primal, OC and Stella, with small mix in of pumpkin, some fish, chicken etc (usually the chicken is cooked as its part of our whole foods dinner but sometimes raw).
The funny part was when the vet tech once said this:
"Your dog's fur looks great. What is he eating?"
"Raw dog food."
"Oh, he needs to get off that."
That being said, early on with our lab, there were definitely times when I dont think we had it right. We do rotate now, and I think we are doing okay, but reading this forum, I am thinking about investing in some time with Sabine.
What I find frustrating though is that you pay a vet for services and advice, and I do like my vet, but you still have to do a lot of the research and work yourself.
