|I stay out of the facebook groups now. I snapped a while back when a group started suggesting regular prey-model raw to dogs with chronic pancreatitis. When I tried to explain the problem with fat intake, I was given the whole "kibble is poison" spiel. No thanks!
This forum is full of people who are well-informed, friendly AND open-minded. We don't hate on commercial food, home-cooked or varying raw diets. We love the raw diet, but we have common sense and a desire to help pets stay healthy, in whatever way works for them.
Edit: And I guess I should say something more to the topic .
I fed full prey-model raw for 2 years, but I had become so exhausted from a new job and general anxiety that I couldn't balance their food correctly. It really showed, and their skin/coat was in rough condition. Before that downslope though, I loved feeding prey-model. It worked for us. Now we feed half Orijen and half raw, and it's working equally as well.
I have heard great testimony from both diets. Whatever works for people works, but they should try their best to balance the diet, else they could end up with lots of problems.
