I suggest a consult with Mordy, who will be able to help get you started.

I thought about that BP!

My vet cautioned against switching to raw before I know what the hell I'm doing. So we're feeding TWO for now. But I still want to switch... and contacting Mordy is a great idea!

Absolutely. I have so many books and even though I've not read through them, the first few that I have read have been VERY convincing on a raw or home prepared diet.

I don't think it's that common, but it can happen. The vet told us to take her off of it because it was making her worse.

I don't know about probiotics....never had any problems with them, but it's always good to talk it over with your vet first if your little guy is having issues and you want to change his regimen.

If any dog is going to have a problem with anything, it would be my dog....hence my advice - we've been there, done that.

Thanks, I will ask my vet about it.

No problem...and if your vet okays it, I'll even be happy to send you Hannah's almost brand new one pound bottle of Prozyme, since she can't take it anymore.

The thing about Pitcairn is he pushes grains heavily. I can't remember the link I read on this.
