Cut back a cup a day rather than changing food. Jim

Cap'n: I HIGHLY recommend a raw food diet. Bernie will love you for it. I have a raw food page on my web site with the details. Jack has been on raw food now for over two years. Body: solid muscle. Teeth: pearly white. Breath: sweet as roses. Ears: clean, no mites, no yeast. Skin: no rashes or hot spots, no itching.

I use Science Diet Adult Light. My pup was 98 lbs! Through diet and excercise she is now at her proper weight of 78 lbs.

I agree with Jim, same food, cut back cup and increase the dog's activity. The increase of the activity was key for us. Helped me out too!

That bowl almost looks good enough to putin a salad bowl.
What are all of the ingredients?

Novemberwitch,

The contents of the bowl pictured above is raw ground beef, raw apple cores, and raw broccoli. Last night I fed Jack a bowl of raw venison chunks, raw lettuce, raw cauliflower and raw pumpkin. Today he has had two raw chicken leg quarters (with bones); 1 for breakfast and 1 for lunch. Tonight Jack is having raw buffalo liver, raw pumpkin and raw broccoli.

Exceed is a good brand. Hard to find; Sam's club is the only one I know that carries it locally for me.

My 4.5 month old lab gets Nutro Large Breed Puppy. She seems to love it and the Vet likes the way she looks. Don't know much about it, but what the breeder had her on. This is my first pup so not much experience.

Thanks John. Jack has been on a raw food diet now for about 2 1/2 years. He eats raw meat (beef, chicken, venison, bison, fish, eggs, etc.), raw fruits and raw vegetables. He is 74 lb.s of lean muscle. Hardly any mess to clean up compared to the "premium" manufactured kibble cereal with all the fillers they put in it. He is 5 years old now, but you wouldn't know it to look at his teeth. They are nice and white, and we don't scrape or brush them. His coat is beautiful and shiney. No more trouble with hot spots, etc. His breath never smells bad, and he makes NO GAS, period. His ears are clean; no wax, no ear mites, no infections, and we rarely clean his ears. I have saved alot of money with raw too.

I will NEVER go back to manufactured cereal dog food. For the good of their dogs, I really wish more people would look in to feeding raw food.

<P>try pro plan maintenance fromula, higher in protein but you also don't feed your dog as much when they are inactive, when they become active again you can go to 3 cups a day. Need to watch how the dog burns the food off too, may need more, may need less&nbsp;</P>

<P>Instead of changing the food, try to cut the total amount back by 1/3.&nbsp; Then every month run your hands down the side of the dog.&nbsp; You should be able to feel the ribs, but not see them.&nbsp; If there isn't any improvement in a month, cut back by 1/3 again.&nbsp; This is a great way to help your pet lose weight but it is also a very gradual process.</P>
