It seems like every week a commercial pet food is outed as containing actual poison. First it was a euthanasia drug that popped up in the mass-market foods on the cheaper end of the spectrum. No surprise, I thought, rather smugly. If you feed your dog garbage, what do you expect? If even the most expensive kibbles contain poison, what are you supposed to feed your dog?
Late last year, Wiley our five-year-old mutt developed a sore next to his mouth. My girlfriend and I started showering with antifungal soap, too. We considered canceling our Christmas travel plans—a road trip to northern Montana, visiting family and friends along the way.
Turns out it was just irritated skin. When he was a puppy, I started him off on Solid Gold. But that contains grain, and I think the ingredient was to blame for a spate of skin problems he had early on in puppyhood. So, we went grain-free, with Taste of the Wild. But that ringworm scare had come after a few months of persistent skin irritation.
His ears were scabbed and scaly inside. The worst part was that he was visibly uncomfortable and lacked energy. Reading online forums, I saw that a few other dog owners had reported their pets had started to suffer skin problems on Taste of the Wild, too. So just before Christmas, we switched the dogs to Acana Regionals, the most expensive grain-free kibble available at our bougie pet food store here in Hollywood.
That seemed to do the trick.
Want to challenge old ways of thinking? you’ve come to the right place.
To get them to eat it, we had to incentivize them by boiling chicken breasts, then chopping those up and mixing them into the kibble. When the news about Acana broke, I decided I was done trusting other people to feed my dogs. So I started looking for solutions.
And I calculated it was only enough to get us through four and a half days. So I started reading up on how to create a complete diet on my own, at home. They have a short digestive tract and an acidic stomach, factors that combine to make them largely impervious to bacteria prevalent in raw foods, like E.
Schultze explains that commercial dog Raw have only been around for about years, and for the thousands of years before that, dogs of all sizes survived on scraps, refuse, and by hunting. Years ago, I made the switch from eating low-quality processed food to video most of my own meals at home and considering the source and quality of ingredients in everything I consume. Everyone knows that eating well makes you healthier.
Would you believe that a scientific analysis of commercial raw dog foods found that many contained bacteria like E. There seems to be a general opinion on the Internet that feeding dogs raw food is dangerous. Really people, have you never made a hamburger from scratch? Far more telling is that a scientific analysis of processed and cooked kibble also showed that a bunch of it had listeria and salmonella in it.
Short digestive tracts, acidic stomachs, remember? Both cooking and processing chemically alter food. Heck, they can even kill it themselves. The idea with BARF food is to replicate the entertainment a dog dog get from killing and consuming a prey animal—their healthiest-possible food source.
The other big idea with the raw diet is to feed your dog the healthiest human-grade food you can afford. Hence all the poison. Gizmodo reports that the euthanasia drug in all that dog food likely comes from euthanized horses winding up in the dog-food supply chain. So, per-day, my dogs together are eating about four pounds of meat with bones, plus a little organ meat, cod liver oilhemp oilalfalfa powderkelp powderascorbic acid vitamin cand some veggies.
Maybe an egg, too. Prices also vary, as do sources. I saved some money last week when friends went out of town and gave me a Blue Apron box that was about to expire.

The weight and external size-to-interior volume is actually higher with a good portable freezer. What about camping? Bowie and Wiley have been eating a totally raw diet, with zero kibble, for a month now.
The quality of both their coats has improved from already excellent to totally flawless. Most importantly, Wiley has had absolutely zero skin problems of any kind.
His usual hot-spot area is fully furred and not itchy. They also produce considerably less poop overall than before. The most important change, though, is that the dogs love it. This crap again?
