Bowdu the male Shiba Inu, approximately 7 years old, eating a duck leg.
His owner says “The photo is one of his first raw meaty bones. As you can see, he took to it rather naturally. There’s a fleck of black buildup on one of his back molars which I noted on the photo. Within a few RMBs, it was gone.
We started Bowdu on raw about two years ago primarily because of a summer of horrendous allergies, and we couldn’t figure out the cause. The vets were really unhelpful, and basically just saw fit to prescribe more antihistamines and steroids to deal with the symptoms, not the cause. So we started first with a high quality commercial raw diets to try and “turn over” Bowdu’s system. After it became evident that he took to our canine culinary experiments, and his allergies came under control, we started expanding to include RMBs as well as a whole range of other foods into his diet.”
Bowdu lives with Bowpi.
Bowpi the female Basenji, approximately 7 years old, chomping on a hunk of turkey neck.
Her owner says “Bowpi had a more difficult time transitioning to raw because she’s a little pickier and she would vomit certain things, especially if consumed in too great a quantity. The photos I’ve submitted come from a post I entitled “A drawback to raw feeding” which talks about the absolutely horrific smell of partially digested raw meat vomit:
NEVERTHELESS, Bowpi enjoys the variety in her diet as well, and does a good job with most raw meaty poultry bones.”
If you want to see more of these two they have a blog http://shibasenji.wordpress.com which is packed with beautiful photos of them.
If you are a raw feeder I would love it if you would send me a photo of your dog eating raw meaty bones to add to the gallery and help me reach my target of 1,000 raw fed dogs eating raw meaty bones captured on camera! Click here for how to send me your photo.
