I honestly can't think of a real reason I wouldn't be able to feed the dogs raw, since I'm doing it now much much cheaper than feeding commercial pet food. But I suppose if I had to pick one I'd say either Merrick 96% real meat, or Evo 95% canned. I've fed the cat versions of both, but the cats also eat raw. The canned food is 4x the price of prey model raw though and much higher in fat and lower in protein.

Can't due raw since I don't have to time to dedicate to feeding her a balanced, varied diet. We tried it for a month and, though she loved eating it, I can see she wasn't doing as well as when she was on Orijen because I couldn't provide the same varied diet. So we are back on all varieties of Orijen. I might try Arcana, honest kitchen, or the new Orijen freeze-dried food just for more variety.

She is now sick of LBP and regular adult, but still loves 6 fish.

Aiden didn't do too well with raw. He used to be super picky too, but has gotten much better within the last year. He does really well with Fromm, Orijen, Acana, and Instinct, and we just started a small bag of Cal Nat grain free which he seems to like a lot.
