Food Discussion & Information / What makes a well-balanced RAW diet????
« on: September 18, 2007, 02:56:05 pm »
So, ok. We got Duke's allergy test results back from the vet yesterday. The poor guy. :(

Food wise, he's allergic to:
Poultry & Poultry mixes (Chicken & Turkey)
White Potatos
Alfalfa (Borderline)

Because one or more of these 'allergens' can be found in all of the dry foods we've researched (and researched and researched), we're opting for a RAW diet. Problem is that neither of us are familiar with proper diet balancing and preparation. Maybe we're over-reacting, :o but Duke is also plagued with a plethora of environmental allergies and we're just trying to keep him as comfortable as possible.

Could someone please advise?

Could someone advise on some advanced socializing tips for Duke?

Shortly after we rescued Duke (who was raised with a Rottie), he presumedly reached the "the terrible two's". He went from very calm and docile around other dogs to agressive (seemingly fearful).

After several eventful encounters with the unleashed and various escapees, we chose to put Duke in a soft muzzle while on walks.

A vast majority of the time, he responds well to the "leave it" command, no pulling, growling, whining, or barking - except when a Tiny Tracker is involved. Though we haven't experienced a full contact encounter for a while now, his excessive interest in them has not appeared to diminish.

Hints, tips, and suggestions towards resolving the matter would be greatly appreciated. :)
