So Hudson has been on a raw diet for two weeks now. Thought I'd include my .2c to date.
He was always a good weight and had nice muscle so no real big change there. Only in the last couple of days have I noticed his muscles become slightly more defined. His waist was always thin but I also notice it has tucked on the sides, and not just the bottom.
He still gets tears, has a bit of an inflamed chin and itchy but I always assumed these were seasonal related. Too early to tell.
His coat is beautiful as usual
and the smell of his frito feet have changed slightly. Not worse at least!
The cons would have to be the inconvenience. Getting meat for a low cost, if you try. Making sure the meat is fresh... Hudson vomits if he eats anything too cold or hot. We can do only slightly frozen. The smell... It's been raining a lot so he us fed inside. I don't like the raw meat smell that lingers in my living room. This also means I disinfect his crate twice a day.
I am not completely sold on raw yet. The plan was to do it for a while, not a quick trial. When we're done we'll decide all raw, kibble or mixed.
I have to say my favorite part is seeing people's reaction when he tears into the meat outside. My husband jokes that they will think we are murderers to feed our beast haha.
