The new rage (or maybe it isn't that new and I, myself, just think it is)....Raw Diet for your pets....
What is a Raw Diet? Well, exactly how it sounds....raw meat and veggies. There is a huge debate going on in regards to dry kibble in a bag and raw diet and which is the best for your pets.
Whether it is due to a food/skin allergy or gastrointestinal issues all my pets are on prescription formula dry kibble through our vet. Prescription formula definitely has less filler (Wheat, Corn, Rye, Barley) and is replaced with a meat and veggie that is gentle on their stomachs and digest easy. My pets have been very healthy since on the dry kibble through my vet. So at this moment, I have no desire to "Stir The Pot" and see if a Raw Diet would suit them better.
However, I am very intrigued by this Raw Diet and it does sound so much healthier. I actually discussed this with a vet last week and asked her what her opinion was. This vet specializes in Western and Holistic medicine. First she agreed if it isn't broken (especially when a pet is on a particular diet for health reasons) not to change their food. But in the same sentence she said for owners that choose dry kibble should immediately look for a higher quality, more expensive brand to feed their pets instead of the cheap brands. The better quality of food the healthier your pet will be and less pooping to clean up.
What are your thoughts on this great debate……what do you feed your pet? Are you thinking of changing their diet and if so to what? Have you looked into the Raw Diet?
