I don't feed my dogs a raw diet to mimick a wolves diet. I feed it because I don't trust dog food period. I don't trust where the ingredients come from and I certainly do not trust anything from China, which is where pretty much all vitamins for humans and dogs come from. There is no way to go around it. I choose to supply them with vitamins that come naturally from the food they eat. This doesn't happen with dog food. There is a reason that all the vitamins and supplements have to be added to dog food, the process of making the food takes all nutrient value out of the main ingredients(no matter where they come from).
I have fed my dogs pedigree, Iams, Eagle Pack, Proplan, Fromm, Annamaet, 4 health, Farmina--so I've had experience with all kinds of food. Once I seen what my dogs allergies were it became evident that there wasn't a food out there that they could eat without issue. I have managed to formulate individual diets for each individual dog. It's definitly a process but I've learned a lot and I've had fun with it. I pop into the vet for shots and routine blood work to make sure they are healthy and that is it.
I no longer go to the grocery stores for any meats. The dogs get all their stuff from local farms with no hormones or antiobiotics. I recently found another farm that can be a supplier for the dogs and us humans at very reasonable prices.
I save a ton of money feeding raw on the food itself and vet bills. I'm always researching and learning more daily.
