I have been feeding mostly raw for several years now but have always had difficulty getting my dogs to eat any organ meat, especially liver. As a safety net I have always left free choice Innova EVO kibble down.

Recently I decided, in part due to the sale of Innova to Proctor & Gamble, that I would do away with the kibble and simply go raw. I add cod liver oil at the moment to compensate for the beef liver.

Anyway, the change in my dogs is astounding! I didn't think I would see any difference because I alway considered them on a raw diet. Neither had a real doggy smell, but my little girl did get a small amount of red tear stains and had an odd (not bad, just odd) smell to her breath. All of that is gone and their energy level is way up!

I really notice a huge change in Peanut, my girl dog. And she is the one who ate the most kibble. I am feeding them 2x per day now and my former hunger strike girl who would get hypoglycemia is now energetic and gobbling up her food! Yay!!!

Yes, and thank you Brody's mom! You were the one who suggested the cod liver oil some time ago. I am going to retry the beef liver soon. Maybe they will eat it better now that the kibble is gone. :p

Let us know how the liver goes. If they aren't fans, we have some tricks up our sleeve.... ;)

Yea for you!!! My new pups weren't crazy for the liver at first either. I think it is the texture. We chop ours very fine--really a mince and mix with whatever else is on the menu and they gobble it right up. I always keep cod liver oil on hand though because I don't keep liver on hand all the time ( or it's frozen and I'm too impatient to wait for the thaw;)).
