Firstly I wish your dog a speedy recovery

I'm certainly no expert and in fact feed raw myself, but I think I'd ask the vet for advice in this instance. I know that many vets are 'anti' raw feeding, but I think given the serious problem your poor poodle has had, on this occasion it might be an idea to get input from your vet.

Re: Raw Feeding new supplier


Thank you, my vet has suggested I stay on the sensitivity for a few days and then she also suggested that I go to see this place called Natural Instinct, just down the road, as this is minced up raw with all the suppliments etc added already, unlike the bones I have been feeding regularly, I suppose I am really just looking for reassurance to be honest as I am terrified that I am going to cause her more problems if I go back on to raw as it was the worst experience I have had with dogs seeing what happened to her with the torsion. Bones and feeding raw didn't cause the problem however I must stress.

Re: Raw Feeding new supplier


There are a few vets that aren't against raw, and some who are very pro-raw, I believe someone was composing a list on the BritBarf Yahoo group. Might be worth looking up their details and seeing if they would take the time to advise you over the phone.
I know many people continue to feed raw post-op but not sure about after a stomach operation.
One option might be to buy some human minces/meats and cook them for her as an alternative idea, obviously don't feed any cooked bones though.

Hi Lilypup Natural Instinct and Darlings which is similar look great foods, I looked into feeding them last year. The only drawback for me is having to buy a month supply at once, I don't have the freezer space most of the year or room for another freezer. It is also quite expensive .

If you live nearby you may be able to buy small quantities at a time and collect it .

Thanks again and yes it is a pain with the storage, my poor downstairs loo is the home of the dogs freezer and not very people friendly now but it saves me lots of money

Re: Raw Feeding new supplier


Can recommend Natural Instinct. My 2 have been on it for over a year & are great on it. I'm so impressed with the food that I have been selling it on their behalf alongside my other business & am in the process of expanding the dog food to include deliveries in the Hants/Surrey/W Sx areas. Not sure if I'm allowed to "advertise" in this forum (I'm new here) so shut up now!

Re: Raw Feeding new supplier


I do like the look of natural instinct and have bought their bones before but it is just the cost for me to feed 3 adults BCs
