So I have read through every single page on this thread...it only took me three days haha. I had been thinking about switching Tito, one of my APBTs, to raw for several months before I decided to try it. I have a Maltese on Natures Variety. Been on it his whole life and does very well.
The other three dogs have been on Avoderm. Tito has really bad allergies so I had decided to switch him to raw. It has been about three weeks and I have noticed a HUGE difference. His stools are smaller, his coat seems to shine more, he doesn't smell as bad, he no longer chews on his feet until he cries(he really is just that dumb), and the staining on his feet is going away. Im LOVING it.
At the moment he is just on chicken as I am watching for his allergies and taking it slow. Mainly chicken quarters and chicken necks. He also gets egg w/shell, fish oil, tripe, small amounts of liver, and yogurt.
I gave him pork feet last night.
Im slowly going to start getting more cuts and different meats. Ox tails, chicken backs, and whatnot.
This is what I have been going off of http://www.njboxers.com/faqs.htm
