Raw and cooked foods digest at different rates and pass through the GI tract differently. It’s best to feed separately. I have a lot of clients who feed one meal of home cooked and the second meal raw. You’re doing a great job.July 8, 2014 at 2:29 pm in reply to: Need advice on a good dog food for a very picky eater #46402 Report Abuse
Have you tried something like Stella N Chewy’s freeze dried raw or frozen raw? Most dogs can’t resist. The freeze dried needs to have water added when fed.
The probiotics need to be vegetarian, made for dogs, not humans. I like Rx Biotics by Rx Vitamins. Don’t use Fortiflora – it has Animal Digest. YUCK
I am a holistic veterinarian. I have had the best luck in allergic dogs using raw diets like Stella N Chewy’s frozen raw. They have rabbit, which is a novel protein. Lamb works sometimes, but not always. I have found almost all American, English, and French bulldogs do better on raw diets. They are very prone to skin allergies. Also, probiotics are a must.
