I got Conker from a shelter in St. Louis, but later moved to Southern Oregon. At the time he was fed a very low-quality kibble. He stunk, was constantly itching, and had numerous other problems. His digestion was very unpredictable and made everything quite complicated. I tried feeding him a top-of-the-line kibble, but that did not help at all.
So I decided to skip the game of "which kibble will work?" and instead dove head-first into raw feeding. I am convinced I will never go back to commercial. He has no smell, his teeth are in great shape, his muscle tone is amazing, and his coat is very soft yet stiff like it should be for his breed, and has an attractive sheen to it.
Conker turned out to have Luxating Patella in both knees as well as several food intolerances. I hope to make his life as long and pain-free as possible by feeding him the best food I can.
Conker gets chicken, beef, pork, lamb, fish, game meat, and whatever other interesting animal bit I happen across, as well as a few "other" items on occasion.
