I've heard & done so much research since I've joined the forum on dogfoods & liked what I read about Ziwi. Since I can't do raw & so many love the results they're getting from feeding raw, I decided that freeze-dried raw would be more my style. I asked ZiwiPeak to send me a sample to see if Midgie would like it & WOW--what a sample!!!! They sent me 2 nice size packets of Ziwi & a Deer Hoof Chew! I was totally impressed! Although I haven't let Midgie try it yet as I don't want to introduce too many new changes with her being she's just started THK almost 2 months ago, I thinking some time this spring I might give it to her. Right now I have the Ziwi in my freezer to preserve it til I'm ready for it. I'm really looking forward to see if she'll like freeze-dried raw & my vet seemed to really like it too. She doesn't promote raw feeding, but she said the freeze-dried method will kill any pathogens, so it should be safe! & that's what I like to hear!!!!!!!!
