Was the d-zyme from Global/Ryan's or Pet Value or Walmart - I know I've seen it - thinking Global.
If so, Global franchise's work independently and stock foods based on customer requests, what they do not carry they willl order.
I used to date a guy who owned a pet value and their franchise agreements had to follow a certain protocol - this was over 10yrs ago(eek!) and manufactured their own food "Performatrin" and HAD to stock what Pet Value HO told them to. Pet Value has since revamped it's image and is now jumped on the holistic food (still kibble) bandwagon in an effort to stay competative. Of 7 or so PV's In my area I only knew ONE that carried RAW.
Back to Global - they carry a min # of brands and only based on the company that will supply the freezer. Google your area for independent pet food stores - they will carry Honest Kitchen - one in oakville that does - not sure about Global.
Raw brands (All prepackaged in diff. weights, chubs, blocks, ground w/bone or w.o bone, some have veg/fruit mix on own, some mixed in - note: Keep it simple) - Big Country Raw, Congo, Healty Paws, Red Dog Blue Cat (this one has organic and hormone/abx. free) expensive...Keoni is a new company that developed from a chicken wholesaler/slaughter from requests to grind chicken and bones and are competative
Can do honest kitchen here and there, some raw here and there, raw mix w/HK and to reduce costs - plain old home-made RAW when have more time or co-ordinate this w/what you are feeding the family at the time - Chicken tonight? Dog gets chicken, add some green leafy veg for added health benefits and antiox. (nominal amount).
The D-zyme (went into the thread) is fairly basic pet food store d-zyme and is only plant based and doesn't provide other stuff required for repair - this is more a d-zyme for help w/digestion - sounds like your pups gut needs repair...Plus you haven't given it enough time (4-5days?)...there is no instant cure in conventional, so you cannot expect that in natural.
The B-naturals looks much better, as well there is a probiotic/d-zyme blend from Omega Alpha - this brand is available at Healthy Planet (cheapest) and various Human health food stores that I know of in my area.
Some vax. like bortadella (which is the same family as whooping cough in humans), lepto etc. are from bacteria are shed in the feces and urine and is thought may be causing the spread. So if you have children that play in the yard they could in fact be exposed to and I would think a family member on immunosupressants would be just as likely to become exposed to anything the dog could trek in and eliminate as well as all the recalls on salmonella tainted processed food (incl. molds from moisture in bag).
So, I don't think that RAW should be any more of a concern - spray bottle with touch of bleach and 50/50 water and vinegar will clean up bacteria just fine. A quick wipe with a damp paper towel (no bleach of course) of pooches chin after eating if concerned.
Part of the problem of kibble is how long it takes to break down - Fermentation do to the carbs - carbs/sugars feed bacteria - real raw meat provides an acidic enviro. even veg alkalizes - pathogens do not survive in acidic enviroments.
Omega Alpha (although this has brewers yeast and can aggrevate yeasty conditions, but on the other hand yeast is high in b-vit. which are essential in gastro health, especially B3) or B-Naturals or Carmans probiotic Sunday Sundae
