I have been thinking about switching my 11 year old sheltie over to raw because his teeth and gums look horrendous with the kibble. I was waiting til I got my puppy. Well, I got the 4 month old Akita puppy today and they both started raw together. The puppy has been playing with her food for 2 hours. I don't think she has eaten a bite of it yet. Bodie, my sheltie came back for thirds! I had to tell him no when he came back for a fourth time. He absolutely loved it! I was afraid that since he has been on kibble for 11 years that I would have problems with him. Surprise! He loves it. May just be too much change for the little one today. We will try again tomorrow. Surprise right as I am writing this I hear crunching coming from back porch. The puppy is crunching away on her raw lunch! Hooray! I have been lurking here for a couple of weeks and want to thank you all for the help!
