yeah i have, but i travel quite a bit and i stick my guy in a pet hotel, so it gets a bit difficult to get them to make sure they are feeding him correctly, and road trips become a problem :/ i would love to feed raw though.

Reading over yor thread and someone touched on the ongoing bowel issues...so I glanced at how many threads you have started regarding, I didn't read them...now I have to say, from the time I got my dog at 1yr. old until 4.25yrs. old, I had this exact recurring problem, he wouldn't eat, he had chronic diarrhea and soft stool...I did the parasite test and the tylan and metradonzole (sp.?), anti-diarrhea shots, appetite stimulents...added in canned food to entice, worked for a bit but made stoools worse....while this goes on and on, the conventional vet said no way - NO human food...

I researched raw, but only knew of the pitcairn way - which was "the WAY too complicated" and I was doubtful I could make it balanced (I think he was trying to make a natural based on kibble formula).

Finally went to a holistic vet and she said dog food? NO way - give him people food - meat...bones, low fat and a pancreatin d-zyme...I made the change abruptly - no topping kibble with raw, next day - best poop he ever had...

You can do honest kitchen dehydrated when on the road, raw at home.
But I would do this sooner then later as malabsorption and not eating is cause for future concerns in all process's of the body - muscle, joint, neuro, heart, all organ systems.

Your dog is pushing the bowl away because he is sick - dogs don't eat when they are sick - there is something wrong with his digestion and he needs natural approach - this he is telling you as much.

hmm can i just use honest kitchen overall?

if he does have a stomach upset, why is he gobbling up canned food? or is he scared that kibble will make him sick again? his stool has been perfect while hes been on Acana, it was only recently he got sick and it was bad...
