Santo & Marla ( @the_island_dog )

5:20 AM Nov 14, 2017
Breakfast time! 🍖 Have you considered feeding raw? . A few of the many benefits of raw are: 🔸️Species appropriate diet 🔸️Healthier skin 🔸️Shinier coat 🔸️Clean and healthy teeth 🔸️Much smaller and less smelly poop 🔸️No hidden chemicals, fillers or artificial extras 🔸️Dogs are excited for mealtimes 🔸️Easy to have huge variety while never making your dog sick (unlike when you change kibbles too fast) . . Raw Feeding myth: 💩Feeding bones is bad.... Raw bones are very safe for dogs as they are soft. Cooked bones are dangerous because they can splinter. . Simply stay away from weight bearing bones of large animals as these may splinter. Any chicken bones are fine, as are fish bones. It is ok to feed larger recreational bones (as in this video) but I feed for the meat content & the dogs are supervised to ensure they don't break off large pieces of bone. . There are some very good kibbles out there such as Acana, Orijen and others based on a biological appropriate raw diet. For the sake of your dogs health, do your best to stay away from foods with fillers. Dogs cannot utilize corn and it has no benefit to them whatsoever. . Do you know what is in your food? Feeding a food full of fillers, artificial chemicals with no specified meat content is the same as feeding your kids Mc Donalds every day. . Good food doesnt have to be expensive. Check out the website Dog Food Advisor to see where your food ranks. . Raw isn't practical for everyone, though I believe it is the best. . Santo has a very sensitive stomach and had skin and stool issues even on Acana. Since switching to raw as a 6 month old pup these issues have all disappeared and he has gone from a picky eater to jumping for joy (literally) at every meal time. . I make my own raw food and buy directly from butchers and fishermen as you may have seen in my videos. But there are many commercial raw food companies out there in more developed companies, which can take the hassle out of raw feeding for you. .

    Does the size of the dog matter? I have a small Maltese male about 2yrs old and he’s been having kidney problems. Would raw feeding help?

    That looks delicious 😍😍😍

    @topi_the_dog Thought I share this with you. :) Hope this might work for Topi. 🙏

    Been feeding my dog raw for 10 years, best decision I’ve ever made

  • @ryester2004 12:20 AM Nov 15, 2017

    I really want to feed my dog a raw diet but my mom doesn't agree😔

  • @oriley_night_sky 2:19 AM Nov 15, 2017

    We had Riley on Acana and Origen and same we had stool and tummy issues we switched at 5 months to raw and within 24 hours there was a difference ❤️we will continue now and in future for any of our dogs raw food

  • @the_island_dog 3:11 AM Nov 15, 2017

    @finnlivelove yes those rules have to be there I guess but it is a shame for sure.

  • @the_island_dog 3:13 AM Nov 15, 2017

    @bengerman.gsd totally agree. If you raised a child on happy meal you wouldn't see a healthy and fit child

  • @the_island_dog 3:13 AM Nov 15, 2017

    @kamivicious rawhide is terrible stuff 😣

  • @_gsdpuglove 3:17 AM Nov 15, 2017

    We have a similar story to share! My GSD had loose stools from about 6 months old to a year old, he was skinny. I fed Acana at the time and even tested him for EPI which came back negative. 24hrs after switching him to raw his stools were 100% better and he slowly gained the weight he desperately needed. You should see his before and after picture!

  • @evrchurch 5:23 AM Nov 15, 2017

    Hi Baby!!! 😍💕🐾💕🐾

  • @levelupdogs 10:38 AM Nov 15, 2017

    I feed Acana and am slowly trying to switch my sheltie to raw! My BC won’t eat it. :(

  • @rambothegsd_ 11:14 AM Nov 15, 2017

    💯 agree!! Rambo too had issues with his stools.. and never excited to eat til I made the switch he was 9 months old.. he loves his raw!!

  • @firstladyingrey 12:38 PM Nov 15, 2017

    I agree💯as well, I'm on a raw diet since 9 years back and I'm feeling happy and healthy😉✌️🍖🐾🤗❤️

  • @happyhikingpups 1:01 PM Nov 15, 2017

    Nothing better than real, whole foods 💜 it’s so funny how people realize that’s true for themselves, but they usually don’t for dogs!

  • @nncnxx 1:51 PM Nov 15, 2017

    Raw food is the best you can feed to your dog if the meat and bones are of a good quality and if you are aware of what vitamins and supplements he might need as an extra. Vets don't generally know sh*t about feeding raw food and they usually only see the cases where things have gone wrong, eg splintered bones stuck in the system

  • @lilmissgbh 2:52 PM Nov 15, 2017

    I went to raw when one of my GSDs was severely sick due to her booster. It was to put weight back on her safely. Im vegan and didnt know how I would feel feeding raw, but after seeing how quickly she recovered, and the benefits... I aint going back! 👍👍 TOTALLY recommend it

  • @wet_nose_diary 3:04 PM Nov 15, 2017

    What resources do you use to understand the amount, variety, and nutrition content of the meals you feed? Also, how do you deal with the mess and potential illness from raw, e.g. e-coli getting on their fur, paws, etc and tracking that everywhere?

  • @kanjidoguk 3:16 PM Nov 15, 2017

    I love Raw too! Sometimes I get a bone so big I can fit my head in it and I get to chew on it for days :)

  • @soha_lobster 4:27 PM Nov 15, 2017

  • @suitelifeofzakandcody 7:27 PM Nov 17, 2017

    Yummy! We recently fed a raw bone to Zak and Cody, they absolutely loved it!

  • @casi.d 8:30 AM Nov 28, 2017

    Kleiner snack :)

  • @doctor_surgilicious 5:57 PM Nov 30, 2017

    Yum! Enjoy! :D

  • @katrinmeiller 9:17 PM Nov 30, 2017

    Totally agree 😉 our dog is fed completely raw and it's great for us (not so smelly poop) and of course for him (yummy healthy food) 😄

  • @popeyedog101 7:40 PM Dec 4, 2017

    Yup. Put those #dogteeth to work

  • @nicholeflowernight 2:04 PM Dec 5, 2017

    I don't know if my German Shepherd would like that very much 😂
