|I can see what you mean, Sanka, and it's not right for people to jump to conclusions. But at the same time, if a problem is probably diet-related, why not recommend a diet change? It'll be a super easy fix if diet was the cause, without any meds needed. If it doesn't work, the dog didn't suffer. Sometimes I get foster dogs with ear infections (yeast), allergies, poor coats, grease, etc. Those dogs always improve on raw. Is diet the only cause of those problems? No, but it's a good starting point when trying to treat those types of issues. And I've yet to meet a dog on a good diet that has a greasy coat.
I do agree that it may not be fair to group all kibble-fed dogs together. I'm guilty of doing that even though I don't think all kibbles are made equal. Just a habit. Pedigree and Science Diet are not the same as TOTW or Orijen .
"Many admit to same sized poops or larger ones on raw."
I actually haven't heard this. I've fed many, many foster dogs raw and they've all had smaller stools. I think the same is for most raw feeders, unless they're over-feeding. Or at least the raw feeders I know . Honestly, the small stools that don't sit around forever is one of my main reasons for feeding raw to the foster dogs :p.
