Have any of you put your pets on a "primal" diet? The reason I ask is for dogs and cats specifically most of us know they are also becoming obese like some of their owners. Most of the dog/cat food out there are grain based (corn, oats, rice, etc) and predators like dogs/cats were not meant to each them. They were meant to exist on meats only. Some of the more top quality pet food are grain free and if you read the labels sound a lot like paleo/primal foods. Some ppl have gone away from kibble all together and feed their dogs raw which is 100% primal. I got a 7 month old boxer last month and when i got him he was nearly 70 pounds and was obviously chubby. The previous owner fed him a vet recommended dog food that is grain based (and by products). As soon as he came home to live with me I started feeding him a meat based kibble that was grain free and within the first week he lost 3 pounds and has a defined waist and muscles. He had an ear infection before we got him and I'm sure it was related to an allergy to the grains. Has anyone else on MDA being doing this?
