I corresponded with you last fall as I was learning about raw food diets and determining what works for me. Your excellent site was the only place I could find an alternative (egg shells) to feeding raw bones, which I find too frightening, particularly after my male scarfed down a whole chicken thigh.
With your guidance, the daily routine is now ½ cup ground veggies, 1 oz organ meat, 7 oz muscle meat or fish, and several of the supplements from your online store. I prep a week’s worth of the veggies and meat every weekend so each morning it takes me 10 minutes to dish out their food, make my own granola mixture breakfast while they eat, and then clean up. It’s a breeze once the routine is established.
Barkley (the black Scotty male) had such dry fur last summer that he scratched continually, wearing his fur right down to the bare skin around the base of his tail. His coat is now like velvet and he never scratches. When I brush their teeth, I notice how little plaque buildup there is with the new diet. Last but not least, I no longer have to worry about the raccoon which last summer learned that if he (she?) pushed through the dog door, the reward was a bin of kibble waiting in the kitchen. With the kibble gone, the raccoon has moved on.
From Barkley, Buffy and me, thank you for your wealth of online information, your excellent supplements and your support.
