I've been feeding raw for quite awhile and haven't had any major problems arise and hopefully won't. However, my dog had a blockage between the stomach and small intestine which required surgery two days ago. The blockage was a piece of rawhide and following it was a piece of undigested meat. My vet made a huge ordeal about how awful it was when she removed it, that it was decaying inside his body, and extremely toxic. That meat was blocked by the rawhide.
I'm just wondering... wouldn't a similar scenario have played out even if it had been kibble? It still would have been blocked and it still would have been undigested and disgusting!
What are anyone's opinions on this? I'll still continue to feed raw, but I guess I just need a little reassurance that I didn't harm him (more) because of feeding raw instead of kibble where it applies to this situation.
