The cons of raw is the meat didn't come from the wild. The domesticated meat ate corn, grains, and very little wild food. The raw is still better than dog food which also uses domesticated meat sources. Another con is freezer space. You have to get a seperate freezer to put the meat in. Cross-contamination of germs is also a problem if you are not careful.Could someone explain the pros and cons of a raw diet vs kibble and vice versa thanks in advance
thanks for the concern Ames. from the research and talking with my trainer, i found out that at least 8hrs in between feeding should be sufficent time for each food to digest. at this point he gets fed at 8:30am and 6:30-7:30pm.Odin be careful of that because dogs digest the foods at different rates and going one and then the other and switching over and over isn't good for them, they need time to adjust to how to digest.
I think feeding raw is really great. I would love to do it if I had a bigger freezer, but I have someone feed my boy dinner for me (I work nights and would rather not make him wait until Midnight) So I cant do raw if they are not on board with it. Finally got my boy good with the food he is on now, so I am also reluctant to switch and start all over.
nice! my research says it takes days to adjust not hours, but hey to each their own Whatever works for you and your pup is all that mattersthanks for the concern Ames. from the research and talking with my trainer, i found out that at least 8hrs in between feeding should be sufficent time for each food to digest. at this point he gets fed at 8:30am and 6:30-7:30pm.
