ha! that was/is me! The one I have found the most positive feedback from has been Pet Partners. They do not allow a raw diet, their rules are to leave a 2 week gap between raw feeding and any kind of therapy visit. I talked to my vet about it and he isn't a supporter of a raw diet. Not because he said its bad for the dog, but because there have been nutritionalists who aren't linked to any corporation or group that have found it isn't that much better than a good-quality dry food.

I question everything and have a little motto "pseudoscience- not even once". Its so easy to fall into cultural fads these days that I just do my own research. I'm going to meet with some of the professors in the biology department at the university to chat about it later this week.

I don't know how they can tell if he/she is on raw.

EDIT: we have a local nursing home with very sick patients that are ALLOWING us to train in their facility, I will be abiding by the rules of no raw for their sake.
