This is my first week here and I have already learned so much.
So glad there's a thread for our loves and companions. Thank you!
(that's my little Princess!)
She has suffered from dark, teary eyes ever since we got her. We made a trip to a Green Doggie store to pick up food for her. Once we got there, a very knowledgeable lady at the store got our attention and told us that the tears were an allergic reactions to the wheat/graim (Makes complete sense!!!) and that an diet free of that would get rid of them. We have been raw for about 3+ weeks and are still trying to figure some things out but definitely wanted to switch Lilly to a Raw diet. She is dog and that is her nature. She shouldn't be eating cooked food. In the wild, at 6;bs she wouldn't be able to take down a bison, or cow and not even a rabbit. LOL! BUT Raw is her nature.... So, we are starting her on a Raw diet today and picked up samples of raw frozen food for her. We're thinking of buying the frozen food simply for the transition and then we will start making it ourselves. Here we go!!!
Today Lilly completes our Raw Family! :) I will let you all know how this week goes and how the transition takes place. Of course, she will have a detox period but as raw foodists we all know that is normal.
Thanks for all the info!
