Having seen both this thread (I do still read the forum) and David's facebook post, perhaps it's time to explain why I've stopped contributing much - and especially why I've stopped replying to pleas for help and advice on what to feed.
It's simple really. Over the time since I first joined the forum more or less at its inception, as a result of my experience feeding The Little Cav along with the further research I've done and my observations of other dogs, my opinions on the subject of feeding dogs have changed. As I've seen and learned more I have come to the conclusion that raw feeding is by far the best way to feed almost any dog, though a few may perhaps possibly benefit from a home cooked diet. I personally would never again feed any dog dry food of any kind, and I could no longer ever suggest that anyone else should consider doing so either.
I'm aware, of course, that some say they've tried feeding their dog raw food and it just didn't suit him/her. I'm afraid this makes me quite cross! People will find that one kibble doesn't suit their dog and then try another, and another, but many try one type of raw and then give up. 'Raw' is not simply one category, any more than is kibble, there are many different raw foods that can be fed and in many different combinations - if one doesn't suit your dog then I would say, try another.
In short, I've become a Born Again raw feeding fanatic, of the type that could annoy the knickers off many potential contributors to the forum. Since I have no wish to do that, and since there seems little point in replying to every query with the same recommendation - feed raw! - I've been keeping my mouth firmly shut.
