When feeding a group of dogs, it's a frequent occurrence: dog looks down at his bowl full of bland dry pellets, looks up and glances next-door to the dog with her gushy-mushy bowl of raw food. He looks up and sighs, “man, I want what she's having!”
When house-sitting for a pet on a hunger strike, a tablespoon of raw food is the lord of all enticements. If you've got a finicky pet or if your dog seems bored with the same ole food, give raw food a try.
Keep in mind that some canine stomachs can be sensitive to certain foods or changes in diet, so consult your vet if you have any questions. More on raw food diets can be found here, in an article written by our friends at All The Best Pet Care: Raw Food 101.
