Raw Food Diet > Veggies

Cooking does not always destroy the nutrient value in vegis, and while decreasing certain vitamins can actually increase other vitamins.

The real game is all about availability as some have said, even if the raw form was more nutritious, if the vitamins are unavailable to the body in that form, it is irrelevant.

If soft poop is a concern, I'd definitely stay away from salt, as well.

It was never so much odor with Moxie, more oily coat, which she no longer gets on raw either... just every now and then, with her coat so thick, she gets so much grit in her coat she still needs a bath on occasion.

I agree, the more in-tact and natural, the better. And often, the longer lasting, which is really a good thing!

I prep a month to 6 weeks worth of food at a time... take a few hours on a day and portion and/or prep everything and portion into bagies, then freeze. Then just take bagies out of the freezer as needed a day or two at a time. Total prep time for 6 weeks worth of food, 3-4 hours.

Raw Food Diet > Are We Sure They Are 100% Carnivore?

Continuing on with your thought Momo (and I'm agreeing with you)... I think the main thing to consider is not only if fruits, veg, etc are necessary, but more importantly digestible! I believe there are many things a dog would eat (fruit, veg, etc) because it would in fact fill their tummy. These may not however be particularly digestible for them and provide little or no benefit. Just because a dog is classified as a carnivore doesn't mean the animal absolutely will not eat anything but meat, though meat is the primary nutritional and digestible component of the diet.

There is also new research that suggests wolves may more typically split open the stomach and spread the contents out, not eating much of the actual partially digested material. I hope research continues on wolf behavior and it furthermore helps shed light on our domestic pups!

Food & Nutrition > Food Survey - What do you do?
Moxie

1. What is your breed, age and gender?

Cardigan Welsh Corgi, 3, Female

2. What type of food do you eat? (kibble, canned, kibble and canned, home-cooked, raw, combination)

Raw (Prey Model)

3. Have you experience a health problem that required a diet change? Was it a long term or short term change?

Nope

4. Excluding special diets for medical reasons, have you ever made a major diet change? If so why? (switched from commercial to home prepared or vice versa; invested in a higher quality of food or commercial raw like NV or primal, started a rotation diet, etc.).

Well, we went from "breeder recommended" kibble (Diamond Lamb and Rice) to Premium Kibbles and Cans... to Raw. That's where research lead me, through knowing nothing, to everything I know now!

5. Do you get annual wellness checks at the vet? Do you get annual blood panels, feces and urine checks?

Yes, although not a blood panel thus far, yes for fecal. We are in search of a new vet...

6. What are your thoughts on the relationship between the diet you choose and the health (or absence of illness/disease) in your dog?

Again, we believe there is a direct correlation.
