Enjoyed listening to the first episode which explained why B&D include vegetables etc. The only issue I felt was that the beginning talked alot about human health - but not to a level that I could do anything about my own health and the ending discussed the dog side of things - I didn't feel grounded in what was being talked about and lacking in canine talk for a considerable time.
I guess some ppl are involved in forums for raw feed and also have the raw debate with vets and for them they like to have as much info as possible to be able to explain their choice in diet. Myself it's just my own interest. For instance ppl have always said that a dog doesn't need a variety of flavours. The dog food industry just does it for our own sake. Is this true? What are the benefits in your food including fish and salmon meals now? Does it matter if we mix up the types of meals or could they have 12 days of beef followed by 12 days of chicken and then 12 days of fish etc? Does it tell us something if our dog dislikes a certain meal? Are the B&D meals based on an understanding of a Wolf diet? Or is it seem as complimentary information to vilify raw diets?
I guess what I'm saying is that the podcast answered some questions while stirring up new ones 😊
Logical Dog Info
Good podcast for people who want to apply some evolutionary logic to feeding and looking after their dogs. Good info.
Really helpful if thinking or are raw feeding
After a lot of research we chose Bella and Duke to start our raw food journey with our puppy Loki, glad we did, helpful and informative info in the pod cast can’t wait to get the treats too, hopefully ready for our next order
