Emma & Dave’s (Sprockerpoo) Raw Dog Food Transition Story

“Dave (sprockerpoo) was on biscuit food but he would refuse to eat and when I put meat in from the tins he would spit the biscuits out and just eat the meat. His poos were disgusting, his farts even worse!!!! He was constantly sick and numerous trips to the vet. We attended a dog show and stopped at a raw dog food stall where we were told but putting him on a raw diet all these issues would stop. We were skeptical but tried it and it’s like having a different dog!! He now eats all his food and wants more, gets very possessive over his lamb necks ?. I won’t go into too much detail but poos are solid now and no more farting! His teeth are so clean we don’t need to clean them and he has put in a healthy weight and you can just tell the difference in him. The best thing we ever did for him was changing his diet to raw food and recommend it to anyone we know who has a dog! So far we have converted two people.

Natural dogs direct are fantastic too. Always so accommodating and friendly. We visit there at least twice a week as my freezer is only small.”

    We have two Old English Sheepdogs. Our girl, Flossie, had intermittent diarrhoea due to inflammatory bowel since she was a pup. But then 18 months ago she got much worse and started vomiting at least daily, with blood in it. Even with high dose of prednisolone (steroids) she would still vomit several times a week and started to lose hair. She had always had grain-free kibble, but was never a great eater (treats excepted of course). We tried eliminating just about everything except the kibble, although we tried lots of different ones. We tried the anti-allergenic (allegedly) hydrolysed kibble and she got worse. The only thing she could tolerate was rice and chicken or fish, with no treats. So, we finally looked into BARF as a replacement for the rice and chicken to ensure she was getting enough nutrition. We still have her on a very low dose of steroid as we think she will take time for the gut to fully heal and settle, but she is so much better, and can’t get enough of her new food! She starts nagging for it hours before meal times, and has put on weight. Treats we have switched to freeze or air dried raw treats, and she gets a small amount of cooked veg and oatmeal (her vegetable porridge) with her 80:10:10 for the fibre etc as she seems to vomit if she gets constipated. Apparently, at least for her, all processed foods are antigenic, the more processed they are, the worse she is.
