Without meaning to sound rude (there's been quite enough of that going on recently, not on this thread but a few ruffled feathers elsewhere), but I've never told people that all kibble is rubbish, and respect their views if they feel that a good quality kibble is nutritionally right for their dog(s), who am I to argue? I don't take the mickey out of anyone who has researched and believe they are feeding their dog or any pet, a good diet, which is why I feel you are coming across as harsh. I prefer to raw feed because I don't like feeding processed foods, studies have linked different kind of processing and food manufacture to all sorts of illnesses and disease. I eat as many fresh ingredients as I can myself, and give my dogs good fresh food, although they don't mind the occasional bit of processed left overs in there either, but then who doesn't like the occasional bit of 'naughty' food. Any basic science will tell you raw is much better as long as it's presented in a way that nutrients can be absorbed. RAW Truth: Raw Fresh Produce Vs.
