The sooner the better for raw. He looks like he has done well!

Getting so big and so cute!!!  :)

 

However, I disagree with the vet's advice completely. Since you have the bag of food you have now, I would go ahead and feed it, but then go on and put him on raw after that. A vet will advise against raw at every chance they get. Wait a year, and the vet will still say "not yet", and you will be missing out on whole, real food nutrients his body will use more effeciantly than kibble. 

 

I agree with naturalfeddogs. Puppies also seem to transition better than adults, from what I've heard. My pups have taken to raw with minimal issues. I currently have a Great Pyrenees who is growing just fine. She's been on raw since 7 weeks old. My research indicates that a raw diet is better for growing pups because the protein and fat are better utilized than carbs and help regulate the growth better. Of course--your dog, your rules. Good luck!

Nice to see updates, looking good. Both dogs are adorable. I'm on the hunt for another minpin.

 

 

I concur with the raw feeding, the pup can likely benefit from it. So could the pin.

I'm not one to disagree with someone's vet in a situation like this since I don't know the dog, the owner, or the vet, but I would get a second opinion from a vet who raw feeds if it was my dog. I'm glad he's doing well and that the cat is adjusting! He's adorable.
