The problem is that Vets and Doctors alike are not trained in Nutrition. They are modeling an illness rather than a wellness model when it comes to care. There are great Vets and Doctors that do know and understand nutrition and it's vital impact on health, but they have made it their focus of study. If you do find a vet that is knowledgeable in nutrition then they can be worth their weight in gold as far as information and support. I have a country vet that knows that food is what makes the difference in livestock and so is willing to see the benefits of thinking outside the box.
When I first hear of raw, I was like EWWW!!! as a former vegetarian it was something I had to get my head around. I would still be one other than I went down hill health wise without meat in my diet. But that is another issue. But when thinking about what my dog needed and what was best for them, I started coming around. Once I researched, I thought that I would give it a try and see. Once I saw the difference it made in my baby, there was no going back.
I know that for her it is that it is so much better nutritional value than anything she had been given before.
I know that if someone is feeding high nutritional kibble, and no that is not an oxymoron, they do exist.
Then their dog may do every bit as well as mine does on raw. However, for me with all of the ways that I get the raw and what she eats, the raw is better financially as well.
Of course I do still have the Eww factor, but Angel is more than worth it. And gloves are Wonderful! lol
