Thanks so much everyone! I always find it amazing when I hear people with stories so similar to Violet's, and raw has helped them. That's what got me to start it in the first place, was hearing of the same issues, and raw practicially curing them. It's crazy, I never would've believed it would work (at least not so quickly) but I'm sooooo glad we tried it. It was pretty much our last resort, we were spending tons of money and it was going nowhere. No one could help us, and even our vet told us it would be a life-long struggle, and that she'd likely have to be on medications (the problem is, we couldn't find a medication that worked!) for the rest of her life. I'm just so happy that none of that had to happen! I can't even express how grateful I am. She was pathetic before.

Woohoo! It really is amazing to watch the transformations. My mom's English Setter has bad IBD and raw is the only thing that keeps weight on him. It's so sad that most vets are against a raw diet, and will continue to prescribe meds and expensive tests that never fix the underlying issues but focus on temporary symptom relief.

Oh that last picture is oh so sweet. She really is looking much better.
It's amazing how much diet really does for any animal.

I do wish vets would put more consideration into raw diets, it's becoming bigger so I think they will have to eventually, whether that means more literature form vets against it I don't know...

I LOVE before/after photos of raw diet newcomers. We don't get enough of them. Glad to see she's doing so well!
