|It is a Husky thing to fast and gorge. It's also a Husky thing to find kibble a completely unacceptable form of food.
All my guys are on raw, and are doing immeasurably better than they did on kibble. Vance just can't digest the stuff (on top of not eating it in the first place), Ember didn't eat it, Fox would eat it grudgingly and ended up gaining weight, losing fur, and getting yeast infections.
The biggest pro to going all homemade (raw or otherwise) is that you can control every aspect of your dog's food. You don't have to search for food that contains fish but not chicken or barley or whatever else they can't eat - and you completely eliminate all the extras - vitamins, preservatives, flavor enhancers - that come in kibble that can certainly aggravate their system. You will have to go slowly when you add new foods, though, to learn what does bother him and what doesn't.
Lots of people do kibble and raw, either to save money or time or both. There are topics in the raw forum about it. Really it's just a matter of learning about raw, then arranging your feeding schedule.
