I was wondering if feeding raw makes animals mean as grandpa and mom says that when they get the taste of blood in their mouth, it makes them want blood. Is this true? I am trying to convince mom to feed raw but she thinks it's bad.
Ours are fed raw meat and we also breed cavies (guinea pigs) who live in the house with us. Neither of the dogs treat the cavies as prey, they see them as part of the family. It is entirely possible to have a dog and a piggy on your lap at the same time, sometimes the dogs even wash the cavies faces. Obviously the dogs have been around small animals since they were puppies and have been trained to be good around them, but you couldn't ask for calmer, less prey aggressive dogs.
