Ever think that pretty much all kibbles look the same? Maybe just different shape and color, some more “natural” looking than others? Kibble nuggets look nothing like the whole ingredients used to make them. The logic is clear, why feed such highly processed foods that they look like nothing natural? This blog post was taken from a forum post from Dog Food Chat forum by a very good friend of mine. Hope you enjoy it, if not just for the sheer humor in it!
If you feed kibble, and are offended at the fact that I think it makes absolutely no sense, please…. just close this [blog] now, and be on your merry way. If you can appreciate some logical, sound thinking… read on.
Variety is key- in ANY kind of diet. We all know this. It’s common sense. One food, day in and day out, over the course of time- no good for anyone. Processed or not.
When a raw fed dog eats chicken, it looks something like this:
When a kibble fed dog eats chicken, it’s something like this:
When a raw fed dog gets beef, their meal might look like:
Oh, yay! Kibble fed dog is done with chicken! Time to rotate in BEEF!
My dogs love fish. When a raw fed dog eats fish, they might get something like:
Alright! Kibble dog is done with chicken AND beef! Lucky dog! Time for Fish!!
Lamb time, for raw dog!
This kibble fed dog has a sensitive tummy, and my vet convinced me that he’s allergic to chicken, so now he has to have all lamb. You can see how different it is from all the “other” kibbles.
Turkey time for raw dog!!
Kibble dog gets a new food!! Turkey! Yeah!
Mmm, pork ribs. Raw Dog is happy.
Kibble dog loves pork. It’s so… different.
Mmmm, Duck. Raw dog loves duck. The bones are so easy to nom nom nom. Kinda like chicken bones. But better. Mmmmm, duck!
Kibble dog also loves duck. Hoorahhh for variety!
Wow! Mom found a hunter that needed to clean out his freezer of last year’s kills! I get RABBIT! I are happy raw dog.
Woo hoo, sale at the dog food store! Dad sprung for rabbit! And I almost thought he was a cheap ol’ sucker. Only $70 a bag for rabbit. mmm.
Mmm, raw dog loves venison. So… gamey!
Kibble dog likes how…. crunchy… venison is. mmm.
Alright, alright. I’ll be done.
I just think it irks me that people are like: “You feed WHAT?! raw meat?! that’s so weird! Haven’t you heard of DOG FOOD!?”
Yeah, buddy, I’M the weird one.
have you even SEEN what your dog eats.
Merry Christmas everyone, kibble fed dogs and all.
This blog post was wonderfully written by the awesome Linsey Adams Lanman. She runs a very successful dog daycare, boarding and grooming facility in Orem, Utah called Ruff House. Her life was changed drastically when the world of raw feeding opened up to her and her sweet dog Grissom, who was floundering on a kibble diet. He just couldn’t handle the carbohydrates in the food, just like many, many other dogs out there. He was sentenced to a life of overpriced, low quality “prescription diet” kibble and lifelong medications. Instead of pursuing this somewhat illogical path for her dog she did some research on raw diet. After the battle of 7 months of non stop diarrhea with no relief, Linsey started the search for something better….a raw diet devoid of all carbohydrates. Or in other words, what dogs were designed to eat. Two days into raw he had normal bowel movements and had the puppy chipper attitude that he just never had before. Both Linsey and Grissom never looked back to kibble and are now a strong contributor to the raw community.
