She looks GREAT Amanda! What an improvement! :mrgreen:

What have you done differently as far as kibble changing and raw??

Well before (as in, before she was mine), she was only on kibble.

I wasn't happy with the kibble she was on when I took possession of her, so I put her on Blue Buffalo High Protein Evolutionary kibble. My cranky old lady boxer has been on BB and it's done WONDERS for her. So I switched her to the High Protein BB and she's doing very well on it. Then I followed Cathleen's raw guide and started in on raw. She eats about 1/2 and 1/2 raw and kibble, because I wanted to make sure that it agreed with her before we go full raw.

She eats chicken quarters, beef hearts, kidneys/lungs, and liver. She eats quite a bit, and at first I was worried, but our vet says she just has a super high metabolism. We've ruled out tapeworms, any and all parasites, and any failures/disorders with fecals and bloodwork, so she's in great shape. She just eats like a small pony.

I also give her carrots, spinach, broccoli, and alfalfa. And Vitamin E. I've noticed her scars seem to be much less obvious since I've started doing the E. I don't know if it's because her skin is better or the coat, or what, but something's workin'.

Looking eggcelent! With raw, I think you just have to find out what works. For Ruby (and I think Sherman, too) lamb and turkey make for gagging green gas (and I keep buying it for variety - duh). I think canned sardines also are pretty stinky out the other end but not as bad.

Yay, Squishy is no longer rocking the Nicole Richie look. She was always beautiful, but she looks so healthy now and at the perfect weight! Don't you just love looking back and seeing the progress she's made? Now you are going to become obsessed with raw...next step is searching out deals at strange hole in the wall ethnic butchers to get goat heads and chicken feet. I'm tellin' ya...it will happen.

She thinks Seppel has a great smile, and would like to know if she can sniff his crotch for an appropriate interval before biting his face and then running away.

That hussy. :giggle:

HEY HEY HEY!

I mean, I'll tell her to put the hoo-ha away, but I warned you she was a hussy. She indiscriminately loves the good lookin' menz.

He's just so suave. Gah, adorable Goober face strikes again. She knows he's a gigolo, but if lovin' him is wrong, then damn it, she doesn't wanna be right!
