I've been feeding raw for a bit over three years, and I love the results and the wee, little poops. I do prey-model raw, and use ZiwiPeak when I'm traveling or if I have a new foster in who isn't sure about straight raw, yet. It's a great food to offer while transitioning.

I get my meat from some relatively local sources (a couple hrs away) and some further afield (Colorado) and try to buy from ranches that are free-range and grass-fed. I'm a vegan, so knowing the animals I feed my dogs had good quality of life and left a smaller ecological footprint is important to me.

Mylo is on ZP and fresh raw. He's a puppy so he gets two meals of ZP and one raw meal at night. He's been on it since I got him, more or less so I can't say about changes but he does have lovely white teeth and a soft coat. I'd love to feed full raw because Mylo absolutely loves it. You should see how excited he gets! But I feed Ziwipeak too because I don't have to worry about balancing it right and I just don't have the money and freezer space to feed raw. He took to it straight away. I gave him a raw chicken wing and he had no problem knowing what to do with it! On the huge plus side...we get peace and quiet for ages when we give him raw meat and NOTHING is better to him...not treats or the smell of our food or anything!

I feed Honey K9 Natural (freeze dried raw) in the morning and a raw meaty bone, chicken wing or mince at night. I've had a lot of trouble finding a food she would like, she refused everything near enough. I tried full time raw for a few months but she just wouldn't eat flesh on its own or organs! I finally decided she wasn't getting enough nutrients, so tried her with ZP - she hated it! Then K9 natural and she wolfed (see what I did there!) it down she has one poo a day and her coat is so shiny and smooth. And I know I'm doing the best I can by her, my happy, healthy, if a little snappy, princess x

My little man eats 100% raw! I had him on blue buffalo small breed formula until I started doing more and more research about dog food and the myths about raw. His coat has never shined so bright! No kibble for this one!

I feed 100% raw. We use to raise rabbits specifically for that reason - until we moved into town. I love it (you know, minus the whole having to play with carcases and have 2 separate feeding times for the dogs and cats or they fight).
