My 3 are all on raw. When I forget to thaw any out I have been feeding either Taste of the Wild or whats left of the Barking at the Moon dog food.

They all look great, nice shiny coats, teeth and the muscle tone is nice. The poops are ALWAYS much better and firmer on raw than any kibble though.

I bought a small bag of the Merrick Before Grain dog food and a small bag of Wellness Core. We will try those out when they get through the bags I already have open.

Mine have been on raw for almost two months, before that it home cooked w/kibble.

They've always had shiny coats, but now they're incredibly soft! lower odor, and the poops are great!

All three have been on Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice for just over a month.

We were using Canidae before they switched formulas....they did great on it before they switched it. We switched to Diamond after the new Canidae made them have loose stools. Now they are shiny, more toned, enjoy their dinner, and I think, I THINK, that Ruby may be losing less hair. My house seems to be less hairy as of late lol. AND, Diamond is only $23 for a 40 lb bag, whereas the Canidae was $44 and they shrunk their weights.

I WISH I could feed raw. Husband of mine would freak out if I suggested feeding the dogs something EXPENSIVE again, lol.

I am a longtime raw feeder.

My dogs eat a variety of beef, pork, bones, organ meats, chicken with bones, canned fish, eggs, yoghurt or cottage cheese, along with the occasional fruits and veggies or other incidental leftovers.

My dogs keep optimum condition on this diet, along with beautiful coats, clean teeth, boundless energy, and minimal doggy odor.

I supplement with products from Nature's Farmacy, including their Ultimate Vitamin and Mineral, PhytoFlex CCM+, Digestive Enhancer, and KA Calcium.

My dog gets James Wellbeloved. He does great on it, really shiny and soft coat and it's actually the only good quality food brand he will happily eat out of those available here.

Wellness Core Ocean and Sea Pet fish oil.
She is doing GREAT on both.
Shiny coat, even between baths.
Minimal odor.

I still give her the occasional recreational raw bone to clean her teeth.
Sometimes I add sardines.

She gets 2 generous cups a day of the Wellness and has maintained weight well.

The boys get Taste of the Wild. Ginger eats Natural Balance Venison and Potato canned as she has megaesophagus and cannot have solid foods. (her canned is mixed with water as well)

I forgot to mention that mine do get supplemented with raw, even though TOTW is their main food. They love raw. I just don't feed it exclusively.
