Bit of background

Ok so i'm creating this blog as a record of what happens (if anything) to my Dottie dog when i change her over onto a raw diet. It's something i have toyed with since i got Dots as a baby, but only recently have i decided to make the change after extensive reading on the subject.

From what i have read the benefits outweigh any risks, and all the testimonials i have read have only reported good things. Don't get me wrong i have read negative comments on the diet but they just dont seem right. Anyway i thought i'd give it a go anyway.

The first day will be tomorrow night, so im not going to feed the girls in the morning just to make sure Dottie's stomach is completely empty (it wont kill the other two to miss a meal anyway, seeing as they are slightly porky) and we are going for a cold turkey approach, just because kibble and raw meat are digested at different speeds, so i dont want to mess her digestive system up.

I am also going to try and get some 'before' and 'after' photos up, to see if there are any differences in her coat. Well i'll try my best as i cant guarantee the light will be the same each time :s also madame has always had one eye that waters more than the other (nothing actually wrong with it, i had the vet check it out) so it wil be interesting to see if anything happens with that.

I will also try and explain things as to why i am doing them as best i can, in case anyone who reads this wants to know
