Momto2GSDs I've been feeding raw about 19 years now.
Our current dogs were weaned on to raw at 3 weeks old.
Raw food with supplements and VERY limited vaccinations has kept these two healthy & hearty! HUGE difference from our previous dogs!

Ever since I had him tested and found out he is sensitive to all protein except beef and lamb, we have had no more problems.

His coat is glossy and soft. His teeth are clean. He has no doggie odor, no bad breath, no passing of evil gas unless he needs to poop, and does not shed. We do not have hair all over the house.

I supplement with Feedsentials (twice a week) and give him digestive enzymes (Digest Gold) and probiotics, also coconut oil and Olewo carrots and beets.

RubyTuesday 3 1/2, 4 yrs, I think. They do great on it but they did great on kibble, too. Rigorous breeding programs focused on temperament, health & longevity are the very best way to ensure long lived healthy dogs.

onyx'girl I've been feeding raw for over 6 yrs. When I began feeding the raw diet, one of my dogs was 10 yrs old. She thrived on the diet/her teeth and coat really improved, no more hot spots either. She lived to be almost 15(non GSD) and I think the diet helped her with slowing the arthritis.
My 5 yr old was weaned onto raw.

So far in this time period, only two times has any of my dogs experienced a gastro issue.
One time could have been from a deer heart I fed(fresh after the deer was killed) or it could have been from drinking pond water, we had just moved our pond plants to another and Kacie was drinking out of it.
The other, there was nothing out of the ordinary. And each time only one dog was affected. So I can't pinpoint diet relating to either illness.
