Puppy raw fed, is there concern with DCM?
I lost my almost eleven year old girl to DCM five months ago. It was heart breaking and still is. I really spiralled after losing her. She wa my world. I did not plan on getting another dog for at least a year or two. But I was in a bad place...very depressed ...etc..
I called to place my name on a breeders list because I knew she had long wait times. After she heard my story she expressed she had a couple back out of one of her puppies. And she had one available if I wanted. I initially said I wasn't ready. But I ended going to meet the little guy and ended up taking him home. He has blessed me with joy and happiness and has lifted me emotionally from my dark place. I still miss Maggie and still find myself tearing up ....but Griffin my new puppy definreoy rescued me from a dark place.
My question is ....I did a lot of research and am a part of the taurine def group on FB etc. But this puppy is fed raw. This breeder has show dogs living till they are 16 years old.
I am wondering is it ok to give him raw. I can not go through another loss of a dog through DCM. I know I give him raw food with veggies and fruit. I do not make the raw meat part of his diet but I do supply the fruit and veggie aspect (this part I make) I also add fish oil, probiotics, and Carnicore earth greens powder and earth origins powder.
I have read as long as I am providing four different raw meats weekly changing it up he will get his Taurine.
Can I get others thoughts ?
Thank you kindly.
