That first meal was all chicken necks? what are you feeding?

Feed-Sentials Nutritional Supplement
Yes, his first meal was all chicken necks. I alternated between chicken necks and chicken backs, and slowly added in a spoonful at a time the pre-made food that I will be feeding him.

Raw Dog Feed | Blending raw meat diets for dogs | Environmentally sound and healthy for your dog! | Located near Kingston, Ontario in Battersea

Since I have the pre-made, I did things a little differently. Instead of adding in a new protein every few weeks and let the dog adjust, I simply added in small amounts of the pre-made until he was used to it. He now gets 2 pounds of the premade, along with some chicken necks and backs that I still have in my freezer.

He's getting about 3 pounds a day until he puts on some needed weight.

PoukieBear Here are some pics after 2 weeks of being on raw.

Not much of a change yet, other than no more doggie breath and his coat is starting to get soft. How long until he completely blows it out?

How nice of your pooch to give you the first piece of his wonderful meal.

The " crunching " is good !!! Hopefully, you always hear him grinding it up.....he's a good chewer.

If you should care....please let us know any changes you might notice once Lako has been on a raw diet for a while..

Good job taking the "leap" !!

I took a bunch of "Before" photos last night, to keep track of the changes in him.

Even now he looks 110 times better than when we first got him 2 months ago. He was left in a fenced back yard all day and night and stank to high heaven! And he was only being fed once a day, Ol' Roy kibble....complete garbage!

We switched him to Fromm kibble, and started adding Omega 3 capsules every day. With just that switch, his fur became so soft and he stopped sheding in huge clumps.

Here he is the first week we had him. It's not the best picture ever, but you can see all the matting and clumps of fur on him.



Here are the before pics from last night. Taken in natural light, cloudy day, no flash. Current weight is 72lbs
