Barry Atlanta, GA 10/18/2009 10:08:02 AM I put my dog on a raw diet about 6 years ago because of allergies she had to commercial dog food. The allergies were so bad that the vet was threatening steroids. I knew I didn't want to condemn my dog to that, so, against my vet's advice, I switched her to raw. Within the week, my dog's life-long digestive issues vanished. Within 6 months, she was a more-energetic, healthier, shinier, happier dog with NO allergy issues. As an unexpected benefit, he teeth and gums became (and remain) completely healthy.
