gojuchris Sydney, 8/24/2014 5:40:33 AM Internally dogs are basically wolves. It makes absolutely no sense to me to feed your dog cooked food as its main diet. Where would a wolf get cooked rice with vitamins sprayed on top?. My last Border Collie died of an abdominal tumour at age 11. In his last 3 years he suffered itchy skin, arthritis, occasional eye infections and the vet could not explain any of it as he had been cared for by the vets guide book. He did get bones but his diet was mainly premium kibble. For me, dog food is like junk food. Your dog can tolerate it occasionally. My almost 4 year old Border Collie gets a huge variety of raw food and only occasionally anything else. She is a picture of health and energy and I expect to live a very long healthy life.
