That's cute, Macy always has her tongue hanging out when she sleeps. When I picked her up from the vet after getting her spayed she had been sleeping all day with her tongue out and it was all dry, but she didn't want to move and that was the last of her worries.
Yes, we do use kibble but are going to switch full raw this week.
At first it can be expensive because you go thru premade raw until you understand it a bit more. Jess from Burning River has been a great help. Then once you understand it, it actually becomes cheaper than human grade kibble.
I will gather some info, and post a thread for those who are interested. I know Jess is a member here, and sure she will be great insight too.
If anyone has access to MDC forum, the have a dog forum and they talk in details how to do the raw food diet. It's actually better for them than buying dog food. And apparently it's no different than paying for expensive dog fod as it is buying the raw food. It's also a good idea to give them some veggies with the raw meat.
