We said we would keep bloggers updated on the raw diet. I have recently become aware of some major coat changes in all of the pups. Milo & Marley have both been big shedders since day one & now - NO SHEDDING! Marleys always dry skin (despite eating one of the best quality kibble, EVO) - much better! Maribelles long coat is so much more shinier, silkier & softer than ever. Matilda's odd "coarse" stripe down her back...much much less coarse & more soft. ALL five Chi's have a much healthier, shinier coat.
Maxie is experiencing a bit of shedding right now but it is normal for some pups to go through a "detox" when switching to raw & since we're still relatively new it's all a normal reaction. His coat however is much shinier. In time, I have no doubt after seeing the difference in Milo & Marley's coat (I can't stress enough what huge shedders they were) that the shedding with Maxie will be minimized as well.
All the pups are now (happily) eating chicken, beef, beef heart, pork, green tripe (NASTY smelling but they love it & it's so good for them!) & raw eggs. So far, a successful change we're all happy about!
I guess that is it for now...
