I do love Mordy and frequently check her site. I really wish she had more info on raw though, as it is virtually all kibble info and that doesn't apply to me anymore

Tuck, her consults are REALLY affordable, and that's where she gets into the raw info heavily.

Wow thank you all so much.

Ok so no peanut butter, possible raw meat, check.

He was given Hills science diet at the shelter, they gave me a free bag. Seems like a good brand. The thing is, he was only there for 2 weeks. Before that he was in a pound, and they did not take care of him.

I have had him for 24 hours. He is wonderful, just needs some good training.

Again,.thank you all, I'm already impressed and glad i joined this forum.

Yeah, I spoke with my very pro-raw vet about the raw+kibble issue (she is a holistic vet and has done a lot of additional research into raw feeding), and she seemed fine with it. As do nutritionists like Mordy and Monica Segal. As long as they are okay with it, I'm okay with it.

IME a lot of the people out there saying raw+kibble in the same meal is terrible are hardcore raw people who are using it as a scare tactic to get people 100% off kibble.

Hey so could stress also explain why he isn't interested in treats? We got milk bones, beggin strips, and t-bones. He hasn't been interested in them at all, barely a sniff. It's made training difficult.

Try really yummy, smelly treats. I would go for freeze dried liver, bits of cooked chicken, bits of hot dog.

Also to add to the food discussion...I would get him of Science Diet and move him onto a grain free kibble.

Well i don't expect anything to happen over night. he also just got fixed 6 days ago, so I'm looking at compound stress. We'll see where he's at in a week or two

It's recommended that new dogs go through a 2 week shut down period to adjust to new homes... don't try any training, don't take him anywhere, don't introduce him to any existing pets in the house, etc. Make everything as simple and quiet as possible for him.

The food and treats are both, inn my opinion, poor choices. https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-f...ood-adult-dry/ You can use that site to find better quality food, as well
