I switched Timmy over to a raw diet and I have to say it's been great. I do think it is expensive, but he doesn't have to eat as much either. My vet says that the dog food companies say to feed way more then you have to because they want you to buy more food. I have noticed that not only does Timmy LOVE this food, he is so regular in his bathroom habits that I can almost anticipate when he's going to knock on the door. I have just recently switched from freeze dried raw, really expensive, to frozen raw because it is cheaper and has the exact same ingredients.
