High-quality kibble. I do add things once in a while, more as a treat than anything else.

I put 'Raw and kibble in seperate meals'. I haven't researched pre-made raw - prolly have to order it but I try to incorporate all of the organs/fish/egg in addition to various meats. Don't do veggies much but so add some on occasion.

Home-made raw.

Roughly 60% meat/bones, 40% vegetables. Wednesdays and Saturdays organs and Saturdays extra bones. Plus supplements.

On a side note, my dogs have never looked better. I'm embarrassed to say that I was feeding them Beneful before I switched to BARF. They were porkers. They've lost about 10 lbs each just from the switch.

Home made raw w/supplements. 40-50% bone, usually ground but they get chicken backs or lamb breasts two to three times per week.
They also get canned fish 2-3 times per week and green tripe once per week.

Kibble with the occasional egg. I use bones, chicken feet and turkey necks as treats and to keep the babydogs busy when we're not home.

I chose kibble with occasional meaty bone. But its actually kibble, with occasional healthy extras, such as egg, cooked meat, and other scraps. Usually not a raw bone, actually, but occasionally.

She's on Royal Canine Ultra Allergen right now due to her horrendous allergies. I'm pretty positive she only has a couple food allergies though, mostly environmental. But on topic, I am very interested in RAW and I am seeing a dermatologist this weekend for the 1st time. Hopefully he can suggest a better diet for my little girl, hopefully RAW or BARF.

Redhead mostly gets random mystery meats. Living in Ukraine is a raw feeder's paradise, with collective farm markets everywhere selling all kinds of stuff.

Even so, I have not been able to get a consistent line on good cheap duck, goose, rabbit, goat, etc. entrails. Once in a while they come up.

Redhead gets his meals supplemented by veggies, fruits, juices, milk products, raw bones, etc.. Also chondroitin tabs and when I can get hold of it, fish oil.

Vets have commented that Redhead is in excellent health; they can tell that he does not eat kibble and has healthy clean teeth. Redhead for his part likes the vet, as they pet him and pay attention to him and inspect his privates.

I had to vote other, because our dogs are on different diets.

That's about what we give Karma too.

Jezzy, our foster... is a whole different "ball game". She's got a very sensative tummy, so she gets a cooked natural diet consisting of chicken, turkey and we're about to introduce ground sirloin. Along with that she gets rice, ground boiled eggs (with shell and not daily), and we're slowly introducing a variety of fruits and veggies like carrots, sweet potatoes, etc, along with cottage cheese, yogurt and pumpkin. (We've tried her on kibble and it just doesn't set well with her at all... poor girl. :sad:)

I do a combination of raw and kibble in separate meals, sometimes I top the kibble with raw eggs, cottage cheese or plain yogurt and sometimes I mix it with cooked meat and veggies.
