Hello from Gill and Luca and Pippin
« on: Sep 16, 2014, 14:30 »
Hi everyone,  I have a German Shepherd called Luca and a Jack Russel called Pippin.  I have been considering changing from commercial kibble for some time, but when Luca recently broke a leg, which ended up being amputated four weeks ago, I decided he not only needed good nutrition but a feed without additives to try and reduce his anxious behaviour  (which was the cause of his original accident), and the need to keep weight down now he has three legs .   Pippin has always been a scratcher and licker, so hope it will help any possible irritation.   I have been feeding Natures Menu Raw (but gently cooked to be on the safe side following his surgery) and Lupo Natural Swiss Chicken.  I like the ethics of both companies and the dogs love their new food but I will keep researching and reading the comments on this site as it is only the beginning our our 'natural' journey.

Welcome along Gill, Luca and Pippin, it's great to have you here! And great work with the diet change - they are two very good foods and I'm sure your two will both really feel the benefit.

Hello Gill. What a trying time you have had with your GSD.  Poor Luca - I hope that things will improve for him and that he manages OK on three legs.  It is interesting to read of your 'natural journey' especially as it is a similar one to mine, having just started my lot on a raw food diet.  I am using Nutriment and give it straight from the refrigerator.  It will be nice to hear how you get on with this.   :)
