Scarlett's mom: Do you mix the proteins at first? I mean did you feed beef then mix 25% salmon with the beef, then 50% etc. until you are all salmon. I have been feeding the same wellness core puppy for months, possibly four. I started mixing the the core raw rev and have been feeding 50% of each for a couple months. (Joy seemed too heavy so even though she was the age for puppy food, she got 50% puppy and 50% adult raw rev, and that is what she still has now that she is with her handler) I started Kosmo's life with me on frozen raw and stubbornly kept him on that for his first three months with me, many trips to the vet with diariah until the third vet that told me to get him off it and got through to me. He had been on this core puppy kibble (chicken) for months since. Firm stool resulted.
My dogs have shiny coats and tongues are red, noses moist and cool. They look healthy to me, at any rate.
Now when I fed raw I did switch sources of protein abruptly. When a bag of beef was finished I would start with venison, etc.
Of course now I am convinced I need to switch kibble to salmon and beef, etc. You know, mix proteins. Dave posted on this issue before.
