    Re: Introducing pup to raw food

    I feed raw (not prey model, pre-mixed). I've fed raw about 10 years w/good results. My 3 year old and 8 year old dogs were both started on raw at 7-8 weeks. Don't forget how important it is for...

    Re: Elbow Dysplasia

    With hip dysplasia, if a dog doesn't have it very severely, then light weight pull to build up muscle tone can be good. The muscles can help hold the joint in place. I have no experience w/pulling...
