Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Hi Andy, I agree with you. Check the date of my previous post. I did have some doubts about the BARF diet, but that was 3 years ago. ;-)
Hi Astrid. I did notice the date of your post. Do you raw feed now?
I have owned Irish setters for over thirty years and I feel the raw diet is the best I can offer my dogs. After doing lots of research I fail to see how people can still feed some of the commercial foods knowing what the ingredients are.
Hi Andy, sorry for the late reply. No, I am not feeding raw now. It is not my choice but the dogs choice. They where used to eat dry food, I tried to feed them raw but they didn't like it. Now I am feeding the best dry food and give them some raw things and homemade snacks.
I had my dogs raw diets checked out by the nutritionist at Queens vet school, Cambridge, who said I couldn't be feeding them anything better. Some vets are becoming more aware, so why do all the vet students at Queens walk around wearing Hills Science Diet shirts???? clever marketing by multi-national corporations who are the wizards of marketing and spin, and who also offer the crock of gold to places who feel they are strapped for much needed funds....... sighs, and yet people are quick to shout that Dr. Karen Becker and Mercola are money the rakers. Yawn, yawn, yawn. Bored now. I'm off.
we have been using it for 18 months dogs love it.One dog has salmon oil available from their sister company Mariners choice.Our three on kibble only with occasional treats my daughters one has a raw diet but if you not organised and run out of veg dog can get constipated. the premium has omega suplements as they say joint maintenance should start at puppy stage
