The Preface: The Raw Dog Food Diet that Changed Wilson's Life
I will preface this post and subsequent dog diet posts with this:
This is our personal experience.
I know what this particular recipe and diet change has done for Wilson because I witnessed it first hand. From a dog who was withering away and miserable to a dog who is now healthy and thriving.
I am not a licensed animal specialist of any sort, and I encourage everyone to do research of their own. There are A LOT of different opinions circulating the internet - find several REPUTABLE sources and stick with that. The information can be overwhelming, but only if you let it be.
In my opinion, choosing a raw diet for your dog is the best. It is choosing biologically appropriate food with minimal processing. I was naive to the dog food industry prior to this experience that really forced me to look at it all.
Do you know what is in your dog's kibble? Or how wet dog food is made? It is ethical? What is actually in it? How does it get from animal meat to a crusty piece of nugget? Any why have we settled on this as the standard?
