Hello, we finally started Sophie on raw food. We were advised by the owner of the health food store to gradually introduce it, so we’re in the process of weaning her from a high quality kibble, which I know that sounds like an oxymoron….Anyway, we have noticed some more energy in Sophie, and an interesting #not so interesting behavior, is that she just loves to come and lick me after she has eaten. I’ve written a post before about my anxiety about germs, and I’m getting to a better place with the raw, and not freaking out each time Sophie comes running to me after she’s eaten so that’s good!! One thing I have noticed, and have no idea if this would be coincidence or not but it seems like she’s put on weight in the last two weeks since starting the OC Raw Lamb…..Granted we are cutting down kibble at the same time so maybe inadvertently over feeding, but not according to the guide on each package. One question I have is since I am home for a couple of hours at lunch and can feed and take Sophie out, should she still get fed three times a day? We never did this for our last two dogs, but wonder what is optimal? Sophie is 7 months and the last time we weighed her (a few weeks ago) she was about 50 lbs….her BEAM is really good, in my opinion. Thanks for any advice about this.
