The 3 Best Pet Foods for Your Canine or Feline - Mercola Healthy Pets

That sounds like a fine way to transition. Everyone has their own way of doing it. Slow is always best especially when you have a dog that has so recently gone through these issues with diarrhea. You may find that you can go faster or if you notice his stools are a bit loose, just back off a bit. You can also add either a digestive enzyme or pure canned pumpkin to his meals while doing the transition to help his digestive track/gut. My girls transitioned to raw rather quickly but they were already accustomed to rotation with grain free kibbles. I used Proform from THK while doing the transition to raw. My dogs are small. If memory serves me correctly I was putting 1/4 tsp. in each of their meals for 3 or 4 days. If your dog has been on pretty much the same food for a while the transition usually takes a bit longer.

Kibble begins as a dry cooked meal whereas canned food is canned fresh. Kibble is exposed to more heat than canned (destroying nutrients). Worse yet, kibble is linked to kidney and bladder problems in cats, and to bloat, a deadly problem especially for large, broad-chested dogs. It’s also dehydrating. Of course, canned isn’t perfect either. Fresh is best, raw or cooked. Next best is frozen prepared food and then dehydrated and freeze dried foods, all available at better pet stores.

Treat your dog with Petco's selection of frozen & raw dog food. Shop the best frozen & raw dog food brands to find the flavor that your pup devours. That kind of defeats the purpose of raw food, as cooking it can kill some nutrients. Raw food isn’t necessarily the best option for everyone (not for me), but cooking the food is probably not the way to go. Most raw food does not contain bacteria that causes diarrhea for dogs, (humans have to be more careful.) though this one is being recalled at the moment so I wouldn’t recommend it. There are several brands of cooked frozen foods, foods that are cooked at the lowest FDA safe temperature and then immediately frozen. You could look into those if you don’t want to feed raw, but don’t like the processing of commercial foods.

The Case Against Raw Frozen Pet Foods | Wysong

I buy my raw dog food from a very reputable butcher who only business is in raw pet food. They only sell organic meat- chicken, lamb, turkey, duck & beef (which I do not feed my dogs) The meat is ground up – bones & all. It is the best food for my dogs. I am very careful when handling the raw meat as I would if I were handling any raw meat. Just a little common sense is all that is needed.

Our Philosophy: My Pet Carnivore is committed to the fact that dogs, cats & ferrets are carnivores and should be fed food that their bodies were designed to eat: a raw meat, bone and organ diet. Our purpose is to provide the very best quality of pet food from trusted, nutritious local sources.This is the best raw food out there. They source all their ingredients from the local region in which they sell to (so bee pollen!) and it also all comes from humanely raised meats. It also seems to be the freshest compared to all other raws and I’m quite impressed with how the product looks in comparison to other raws. Definitely worth trying. I struggled for years to get my dogs healthy and this has been one that all my rescues can eat.
