Sirius: Before and After Raw Diet

Postby BullyLady » May 20th, 2008, 1:40 pm

So I am relatively new to this board and you guys haven't really gotten a chance to see how skinny Sirius was when we got him, or the struggle I've gone through trying to find something that will put weight on him, but I thought I'd share my happy results with you anyways. Sirius is up about twenty pounds and still gaining, plus his thrush and constant resulting staph infections have disappeared!. Yaaaay!!! :dance:

He's like a new dog!! Hopefully if anyone is considering switching to raw but is kind of on the fence this can be an encouragement to make the switch. I will never go back to kibble!

He's come a long way since being with you & I think he looks perfect at this weight. Of course it is hard to get a true picture of him since he is black but I dont think you have very much further to go. I know you had quite a struggle at first trying to find the right food for him but you should be proud of yourself for what you have accomplished with him. He is so handome

Yea, I think he's almost there too. His hip bones are still sticking out just a weensy bit too much for my liking, but he's getting to the point where he's gained enough and not had his food upped so his weight is leveling out. I will probably just leave him at 4 lbs a day and call it good. :)

He's beautiful, and I'm sure much happier and looks 100% healthier to boot. :)

I, too, have a black Dane. He was six months old when we got him, and he was skin and bones, too. He was also allergic to corn, wheat and soy. I tried raw with him, and he gained weight like a champ. Because of $$ issues, I had to switch back to kibble, but it's holistic and nearly grain free (no corn/wheat/soy). I completely sympathize with you getting weight on a Dane...it's harder than it looks! Especially when the dog is really active. You did a great job! He looks way happier! :wink:
