Melissa in CA Posted July 18, 2012 Share Posted July 18, 2012 OK, I need a balanced perspective. I've been reading different dog forums and the RAW feeders are boisterous and adamant about raw foods only. Yeah, well, my dh is totally grossed out about that, and since he is not a dog lover he refuses to pay for all that raw meat, etc., when a perfectly good bag of dog food from Costco will only cost him $25 a month. So, is there a middle ground compromise somewhere? Like a cooked homemade dog food of chicken (or turkey, beef, etc), rice, and veggies while also supplementing with some raw meaty bones thrown in a few times a week? And maybe even a high quality kibble thrown in 1-2x a week to round out any missing nutrients? Though I am not at all opposed to eliminating the kibble. Anyhow, I would think anything would be preferable to an all kibble diet. :confused: Why do RAW advocates have an all or nothing attitude and then talk down to you like you're an idiot if you don't think it's feasible? :lol: I have always fed an all kibble diet to my dogs and all have been, and are, very healthy. So I am not sure why I feel the need to feed them healthier except that they LOVE people food. I decided to make some homemade dog food last night and OMGosh, they devoured it! (Cooked a whole chicken then in the broth I cooked brn rice, mixed veggies of broccoli, grn beans, peas, carrots and added in the shredded chicken along with the cooked liver and heart). With their kibble they just boringly eat out of necessity, but with the homemade they acted like they hadn't eaten in a month. Even my picky non-eater ate her bowl and licked out the other dog's bowls after they were done. Would love to find an affordable balance. Somehow. Comments, thoughts, ideas?
