We have the very good fortune to have a very long-standing "unofficial" dog park near-by, with lovely people, nice dogs, and lots of grass for the animals to run. We go there daily (if not twice daily). I see hundreds and hundreds of dogs. Far too many are in sad condition. Obesity, lack-luster coats, and those sort of swollen looking bellies that kibble fed dogs get are the norm. Older dogs are plagued with cancers, fatty tumors, tartar-stained teeth, and artheritis. It is sad.
This is an upper-middle class environment where people commonly spend small fortunes on vetenary care (hip replacements, ligament surgeries, and cold laser treatments, to name a few). Yet few, very (very) few feed raw.
I don't know that a raw diet will insulate us from all the health problems a dog might face, but I feel good knowing "Chester" is working off a solid base of good health build on an optimal diet. While I don't "push" the PMR I do hope my Vizsla has a demonstration effect. He is already quite "famous" for being such a preternaturally vital looking dog, plus he's the biggest sweetheart (ever who is happy to play with anybody).
Anyway, it is nice to find a community of like minded folks here. It is a little lonely feeding-wise for me at the moment "in the real world."
