    While I am not a specialist by any means. Dog's aren't solely meat eaters. We mix in a few tbsp of olive oil and some veggies with the meat and 1/4 tsp of vitamin C.

    Raw food diet-awesome for our girls

    As others have noted, a raw food diet made a huge difference in our dogs' coats-and "waste" is small and not stinky relative to their habits on premium dry foods. Would post a shameless pic if I could figure out how to do it on an ipad...

    Speaking of dog waste being bad on crappy kibble, I walk to university and I always have to dodge the exact same dog's crap. How can I tell it's the same dog? It's neon yellow, mushy, ragged, and absolutely giant-sized. The main path I walk is dotted with at least 2-3 yellow smear-piles every block.
    There are fresh piles along the same long street every couple of days, so the owner obviously doesn't care to clean up after the poor thing. Although I'm sure the owner also must think it's normal. Gawd, the dog's farts must be killer.
    There aren't many problems in life that can't be solved by sleeping it off, or adding more butter.

    Nix--- I respectfully disagree on that--- dogs intestinal system is NOT built to digest veggies thats why as they go in they come out, if you give a dog a carrot for example you can bet your house it will come out exactly how it went in WHOLE. I could post pictures of this BUT I will spare yall that, LOL---- NOW on the Vitamen C??? I agree with you 1000% I have all my dogs on 2000mg of ester C daily--- some REAL nice research papers on the benefits of Ester C and joints on dogs.

    You have MIRACLE dogs --- honestly--- I have 10 dogs at the moment and have had well over 100 dogs through out the years NEVER have I had less then 5 dogs around me--- I have raised LOTS of them and NEVER have I had a dog digest vegetable EVER ---they poop them whole just as whole as they go in. BUT that's fine there is always an exception to every rule I guess ---life is FULL of miracles, LOL.

    So, Ace has been primal since I last posted on here and he's doing great with it. None of the bad symptoms I expected, like mild stomach upset. Already, he has more energy and he actually enjoys eating and goes looking for more. So far, we've just given him chicken. My girlfriend and I are going backpacking Monday and Tuesday and when we get back, we'll start adding in more meats, probably beef since we might have found a local butcher than we can get beef at for a good price. Just wanted to give you guys some feedback. This is really the way to go. Our boy is loving it. I can't believe we actually ever fed him kibble.

    Three cheers for intreker! If you're still looking for some starter info, here's a Q&A I wrote some time back (pre-primal ;0) ) on prey model raw: Prey Model Raw FAQ

    On the veggie note, our pup has been "grain free" since ten weeks of age. I see no need to feed veggies on a routine basis since dogs lack pretty much any adaptation for digesting them. I do give my pooch a carrot or some broccoli or whatever once in a while just to give him something to shred. He'll turn them into veggie confetti all over the lawn and any bits that do go down his gullet come out looking exactly like the stuff left spread around the lawn. Tiny bits of carrot, broccoli, etc. He eats grass once in a while and that comes out looking exactly the same, too. They're fun, but definitely not nutritious.
    There's nothing wrong with feeding them though if you feel good about it and your dogs enjoy them. It's not going to hurt them unless you're feeding them in such high volume that it's displacing more fatty, nutritious foods.

    Dogs get their veggies by eating animals that eat veggies ;0).
    “Falconry is not a hobby or an amusement; it is a rage. You eat and drink it, sleep it and think it. You tremble to write of it, even in recollection. It is as King James the First remarked, an extreme stirrer up of passions.” --T.H. White, The Godstone and the Blackymor
