    raw meaty bone diet

    I help out with a Great Pyrenees rescue, and 2 + months ago adopted Pierre. He was severely underweight, and no matter what I did, I could not get him to touch a kibble or even taste canned dog food. My vet reccomended trying a raw diet. I went online and found the raw, meaty bones diet by Dr. Lonsdale. Well to make a long story short, the diet has worked wonders. Pierre's coat is now soft and tangle-free (before it was very course, but has grown in much silkier and bouncier), and his teeth, which were very brown and stained are almost white.

    My question is this--Pierre is indeed putting on weight, but does anyone know if there are any long-term studies out there? The results thus far have been incredibly positive, but...it's only been 2 months.

    Also, has anyone fed their dog the RMB diet for a long period of time, and if so--what are your observations?

    I have to admit, the diet is incredibly easy, and surprisingly low-cost. I dont have to prepare a thing, just make sure the prep area is bleached thoroughly.

    Any input is appreciated! Thanks, Nicole

    Hello, and welcome to the Garden! I never made the commitment
    to the BARF diet, but I know many who have, with long term
    excellent results. Let me get you a link to a site that you will enjoy
    looking at:

    Raw Dog Ranch

    Her dog Neke that she talks about has gone to the Bridge, but did
    very well even as a senior.

    Good for you for doing it... if there's anything else I can help you
    with please don't hesitate to ask!

    I've heard mixed opinions on the BARF diet - it sometimes seems too limited. I like Taste of the Wild because it had a ton of protein - but also other balance nutrients.
