|Zeph, I'd be trying to get his weight up a bit, too. I agree it sounds borderline (the way you describe feeling/seeing his vertebrae) to be able to absorb any illness without him going downhill too fast. Especially if he should ever get diarrhea. That's why I'd try to stabilize his weight a bit more before a full switch to raw. I'd try switching to a puppy formula for awhile and supplement with satin balls. It sounds like you're able to feed a lot of small meals daily as he's with you quite a bit, that really seems to help high-metabolism dogs.
Our recipe for feeding the performance greys at racing weight always included high-quality molasses, so their bodies had something to use for the fast burn, the bulk was raw meat, then eggs, spinach and some good carbs. Very similar to most satin ball recipes. It's a tried and true method. Hope Mo feels better soon!
