Well, I had been thinking of changing to raw in the future. First I want to read several books before I do any change. Thing is, my wife is not too happy with the idea. My Chatito has beautiful skin/coat, very active, extremely healthy, although his stool consistency is not the best (I'm still waiting for a few more weeks to see if he fully adapts to the Blue Buffalo Lamb and Rice formula). My wife told me, if ain't broken, why fix it? I guess she has a point. I still want to do my full research to see if it is a better alternative for Chato and myself. Those of you that have your fur kids on raw, is it ok if I am still feeding kibble to give a recreational bone w/some meat maybe 1x per week? I am a pit guru (BBQ), and I have cookouts every weekend. I would like for Chato to be entertained while we are all outthere munching on our steaks.

Finally decided to take the plunge to switch to raw. Just a lil more work, but well worth it. He loves it. Like natural instinct, he grabbed the chicken wing and started crunching away. It's funny because if I pet him while he's eating, he will put the entire wing in his mouth, I take a few steps back, then he brings it back down and keeps munching. Like him telling me: "Stay away from my food". :lol: I am giving chato 1 1/2 wings 3x per day. Is this good enough? I need to put a lil weight on him, I can see all his ribs. No spine though. Hopefully he gets more outta the raw diet than the kibble.  :p

Cool, thanx again. Another question for the raw feeders. At first, Chato was chewing his wings, but now, it seems he chews just enough to gobble it whole. I've been after him when he goes potty, and his stool has never been better. Extremely compact, and solid. Question is, should I ground the wings, or is this fine what he is doing? Or should I chop them up into pieces? Thanx again.
