Well, we decided last week to try Wellnes Lamb and Rice and supplement with raw meat. Then Tuesday this week we decided to stop the raw all together. Niki is the perfect scavenger and loved the BARF diet, but Angus with his sensitive stomach couldn't handle all the changes in protein sources and things and was having constant diarrhea. AND Tuesday night we were at the vet's office - explosive, bloody diarrhea.
The vet said he was "loaded to the gills" with bacteria. He couldn't say for sure that it was the BARF, but..... We were really good about using fresh meat and washing their bowls with antibacterial detergent after every meal. Anyway, I don't think the BARF is going to work for us. We might still supplement Niki's food with raw, though. We have a free source of bones and fatty meat and she loves it. I can't wait to try the Wellness. It should be in next week. We thought about Canidae. We'll try that next if this doesn't work out.
