My Vets, semi successful argument against All Raw meat diet???
My 11 week old Working Dog Black Shepherd is THRIVING... Lactose free milk, 70 % meat with bone, beef - chicken- or lamb, but mostly beef. And 30% organ meat, liver-kidney-heart... Smartest I can remember of my three Shepherds, protective already, well socialized but when a steer got out he displayed natural herding instincts, barking and heading out the steer cleverly..
Yes, I am convinced the dry kibble is toxic, and the contributor of my older GSD dogs bad odor, ear problems, constant shedding, itchy, and joint problems. On this raw diet too, my 10 year old seems to be improving in only a week..
Anyway, talking with my Vet this morning for the 11 week old Pups C-5, I told him how well my 10 year old Dakota (Cody) dog was responding. He told me that the all meat protein diet was a bit of a myth, and he had a semi valid point: Even the wolves (I call it the wolf diet) even they eat the stomach and contents of their prey. Even the smaller prey is consumed with the vegetable matter in their bodies...
The Vet claims an all meat diet is hard on the older Shepherds kidneys and liver, too much protein. He has suggested supplementing with a little kibble or cooked vegetables or similar. He claims that predators eat the stomach contents of their prey.. ????
Is this a valid point, to encourage some vegetable supplements off the dinner table..???
