I started Nai'lah on raw when she was 3 years old. She had really dry skin, itching all the time but other than that, she seemed perfect. I started her out on coconut oil, adding a little to her kibble every day. Eventually I started her on chicken quarters, and slowly started feeding strictly raw meals, including beef, venison, chicken, turkey, duck, and ox just to name a few. I noticed an immense amount of shedding in the beginning, considered switching back to kibble, but was told this was all part of her "detox". Sure enough, when her new coat came in, it was amazingly shiny, incredibly soft and no more itching. Her energy levels increased, her "dog smell" decreased and even her muscle tone seemed to improve. I plan on continuing raw with her and any other dogs we may eventually add into the family.
