I feed acana as raw is impractical for me. One of my dogs is a service dog- it just doesn't work well with them. I do supplement with raw bones and some freeze dried raw. My ferrets eat raw also.

I love the acana. It's excellent. It is to my high standards and my little chi has a chicken allergy- so the single protein formulas are amazing for him.

I feed fromm four-star (various flavors) and cookie does well with them.

But for her swallowing issues, I grind the kibble into powder and then add enough warm water to make it a gruel. She loves it that way. Gets a little canned on top of that (my poodle eats canned exclusively) and then sometimes yogurt or other extras.

You could also try Honest Kitchen! It's dehydrated "raw" food. No freezer necessary.

I tried switching my pup back to kibble after almost 9 months on raw (at the time)...it did not go well. I know its not the BEST but I was trying to get her back on Wellness...which before raw...she did good on Wellness. But she was miserable...diarrhea and she had a lot of weird sorta "hunger pukes"...I'm guessing it was the high pH of her tummy for digesting raw going nuts. I was trying this because I ran into some financial troubles (still have them) and thought I'd be able to keep her on kibble for a bit until I was in a better situation but she barely lasted a week and I switched her back to her raw (DIY)...will just have to stick with a mostly chicken diet since chicken is cheap and my pup and I can share...she gets the thigh and I get the drumsticks (cheaper to buy in those huge bags of quarters). Good luck to you, hope you find what is best for your pup and yourself.
