    Re: Whos feeding raw food?

    I feed my dog (since passed away who was a medium/large black lab) a mix of high quality kibble (potato duck or potato salmon) and bear meat. I grind up what bear meat I want and lay it on cookie sheets and freeze it. After its frozen I put it into ziploc bags and freeze it for a month or so before I feed it. She would get 1/4 cup kibble and 1/2 cup frozen bear meat at breakfast and dinner. And she had the shiniest coat Ive ever seen in a dog. She was never skinny, she was never fat.

    Raw and dry food are digested at different rates in the stomach and at a different Ph. Do not mix them and feed at the same time. Alternate them and make sure you have an hour or so between raw and dry. this advice comes from 2 different vets with much experience feeding raw.

    I get pre mixed raw from Surrey Meat Packers. Their brand is called Crudo. It is by far the best commercial premixed raw available in BC, and it is priced nicely... not like these boutique fancy overpriced packaged raw foods that the soy latte sipping crowd fawns over.

    I have tried others as well - straight from butcher shops, as well as this new place called Simply Raw... Most butchers just give you meat - and every one I have tried has way too much fat mixed in - no offal, no bone meal, and usually no veg. Simply Raw cuts theirs with way too much water so that it is easy for them to form and cut into pucks. When you thaw it out, 30% drains off - water... their salmon is the most God awful smelling crap I have ever tried... I swear they collect rotten Chum carcasses for the food.

    Good luck feeding your pooch. Raw is the way to go. it is what nature intended. I do augment with dry kibbles as treats and as a snack in order to provide some variety and additional minerals/vitamins. The Kirkland brand from Costco is actually very highly regarded and it is very economically priced.
    The Pharmaceutical Industry is just as interested in World Health as the Arms Industry is in World Peace.

    I hope that Surrey Meat Packers have upped their game in the past 20 years or so. We used to use their stuff but when our first dog's diet had to be kept to very strict protein limits after her cancer operation I asked Surrey for their food's composition - not by ingredient but by % protein and such. They wouldn't respond.
    Asked a Pet Food Retailer that we now use about it and his response was "That's because they don't know" and made some rather derogatory comments about it. We had the Vet's nutritionist put together some recipies and made our own based on her advice.
    Our present dogs are kibble in the AM, Raw in the evening, works well for us and them.
