Default Harley


Its true what they say, the dog picks the owner. This is what happened. I bought the puppy for my husband... I came down with the flu- she wanted me after that nonstop. She would prefer to lay on my lap on the couch than sit with my husband.

Harley was born December 26th, 2012. We got her when she was 6 weeks. Since having her shes been on 3 different kibble, currently shes on PetSmart -expensive- kibble. Nothing is doing good. She now has a raised bumpy rash on the back - both sides of spine. I noticed it started about 2 weeks ago. and also bumps around her eyes.

I have done a lot of research, and I am just willing to give RAW diet a chance. She already is having nonstop liquid stools, I gave her tonite her first hard boiled egg w/ shell. She looked at me for more. Score.

Shes always stunk, even after baths (baby bath w/ oatmeal).

She doesnt have mange- she doesnt have sores, and not itching nonstop.. Her rash got worse after she ate her kibble tonite.

Sounds like my girl, and raw for her was the saving grace. She smells incredible, she has no problems with her allergies at all and best of all .. she LOVES to eat now. She couldn't have cared less when she was on kibble.

Check out all the info on here about getting started on raw!

Welcome! Raw is definitely the way to go if your puppy has allergies! Good luck. I hope her issues get resolved quickly. Keep us updated!

after 3 days so far, a bath was 3 days ago, she still doesnt stink!!! but its really funny, SHE LOVES veggies, her vitamins, but takes out the meat to bury later. she is totally funny. she burried a neck 3x... I dunno about the wing. but soo funny. she doesnt dig- but she thinks that she is a pig I SWEAR- she tries to bury her raw meat with her nose lol... soo cute.

Her one side of sores went away already, her eyes are already cleared up... this is amazing!!!!!!
