I have to lmao.
I'm debating whether or not to go back to raw now that the pups are older, and their nutrition needs are not so different than the adult dogs now. It will save me a bunch of money, but IDK if it's really worth the effort to prepare meals for 6 dogs.
The raw diet worked GREAT for my healthy dogs, but then there is Neela who has all kinds of allergies. It does wonders for her, but she's allergic to all other protien sources readily available to us besides fish. We've even went out and bought lamb roasts for this dog.Since she's limited to the fish,it has stripped all the fat and it now has worked on leaning out her muscle. I have no problem with a dog who has a low percentage of fat, but the muscle is not being sacrificed. I cannot find a manufactured food which doesn't give her the allergies which are followed by the secondary infections.
Do any of you guys know of a good affordable meat supplier... my butchers around here grind their scraps... and it would be awesome to find a meat supplier which offers alternative meats to try to open up neelas protien sources.
EDIT: I have got to figure out how to save money... this is the only plausible way for me to do it and not sacrifice the nutrition expecations I have.
