But raw food is rarely over 15-20% protein... why is your preferred kibble so much higher?

FTR: I feed raw to one dog and Fromm GF Game Bird to the other, because it's what they do well on individually.

Fred has a constant runny bum from the moment we brought him home. Didn't matter what we fed....

Honestly, the ONLY thing that has worked was switching to raw. In fact, his poos became sooo solid and crumbly we now add a bit of veg oil to his meals. He has normal, firm poos now.

He just doesn't tolerate biscuits well. If we feed him a lot of training biscuits now, we can tell, as he gets soft poos again.

Raw really has been good

You confuse knowledge with conceit which is a character flaw on your part, not mine... I wish I was able to get this knowledge from someone years ago for the benefit of my pets.

As far as your back-handed compliment of having "plenty of good information and knowledge", if even one cat/dog benefits from it because their owner changes something because of it, it's worth it... and I'm happy to say that's happened many, many times... nothing to be conceited by spreading good info and recommending the best vets.

You know, I've said it before and I will say it again.

If people keep telling you the same thing, maybe it's YOU that's the issue.

I agree with toller, you seem to have a lot of interesting information to share, but good god your delivery SUCKS!!!

Your wording is conceited, and you do come across as being a bit of a snob.

Which is a shame, as you clearly have a passion....

I'd try adding an enzyme supplement to the fish food that makes him farty. You can try Beano, but I didn't have much luck with it. I've had WONDERFUL results with Enzyme Pro. It's dirt cheap on Amazon and a bag lasts forever.
